The Great Old Ones - Al Azif

Artwork by Jeff Grimal

The Great Old Ones' new album Al Azif has just been released on their Bandcamp! This is french black metal heavily inspired by HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. The is also french black that conjures atmospheric visions of dread. There are two epic tracks available in the pre-order, you can hear a post-metal sensibility at work in the way they twist and turn, and mixes the dread with passages of stark beauty. Here's a review from Lurker's Path who says:
Equal parts aggressive and serene – The Great Old Ones manage to summon feelings of the sublime and majesty, terror and fear, as well as hate and belligerence.
