THE GREAT OLD ONES are touring in supported of their new album ‘EOD: A Tale of Dark Legacy’.

THE GREAT OLD ONES are streaming a new lyric for the track “When the Stars Align” ahead of their forthcoming tour. The video is streaming at the official Season of Mist YouTube Channel.

Regarding the video, the band comments: “We are proud to present our new lyric video for the song ‘When the Stars Align’. The clip is based on the amazing artwork of Jeff Grimal and represents a faithful celebration of Lovecraft’s entities, ancient and unspeakable, who will one day return to the place which they have left. Come and see us live on a journey to the other side of the mirror. Join us in veneration of the true masters of the universe.”

The artwork and track list for ‘EOD: A Tale of Dark Legacy’ can be found below:

Heavily inspired by the literary works of American horror icon H. P. Lovecraft, THE GREAT OLD ONES explore the dark, forbidden, and violent spheres of black metal. Following the release of two well-received full lengths, the band are preparing to delve deeper into the dark lore they religiously swear by, with the release of their highly anticipated third album.

Steeped in nightmarish Lovecraftian lore, the band once again draw inspiration from the iconic writer to emanate tense, horrific atmospheres in a flurry of utterly extreme metal. Reinforced by macabre themes and morose subject matter, THE GREAT OLD ONES have made ‘EOD…” one of the year’s most compelling black metal releases.
