Hello Brothers and Sisters,
i wanted to know what makes a song, band or album lovecraftian? Is it the Lyrics? is it the Bands aesthetic? Or is it the album art? Maybe all of the above?
In my opinion the lyrical themes and tone of the song play a HUGE part in showing if a song is Lovecraftian or not. The bands aesthetic is very important aswell here an example:
This is "Ultar", they are a Russian Black Metal band with Lovecraftian influences. A lot of their songs have got the names of Lovecrafts gods, locations and stories. For example:
Beyond the Wall of Sleep
I personally love this band and all of their songs.
So here again. What makes a band, song or album Lovecraftian?
