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.
