I finally did it. I finally wrote a song in honor of Mister Lovecraft, an ode to the Cthulhu Mythos if you will. The name speaks for itself, as does the song if you're familiar with his stories. H. P. Lovecraft is one of my most beloved authors, and even Brian Lumley was inspired by his works, Lumley being my alltime favorite author. Just wrote this one. It didn't start off to be intentionally written, but once I realised what was going through my mind while listening to Opeth, I suddenly couldn't help myself. Other bands have written songs based on the Cthulhu Mythos, like Metallica's "The Call of Ktulu" (partially written by Dave Mustaine) and "The Thing That Should Not Be", given the departed Cliff Burton was an avid fan of Lovecraft. Other bands, including Nile, Behemoth, and Cradle of Filth have had songs based on the mythos. Therion's "Ctulhu" is another, and Samael's "Rite of Cthulhu" as well. And given my love for Lovecraft's work, even going so far as to do a report on his writings and settings for a Lit paper, I figured why not write a song. So I did. Unintentionally at first, but upon seeing the lyrics coming out, and the fact I'd been playing the Dark Corners of the Earth game on Xbox last night for awhile, it was fresh on my mind. Musical inspiration is Opeth. Also. A quick footnote. Between the second chorus and the last one, there's a solo, as well as the wanting for some eerie voice effects, like Cthulhu speaking during those moments, though as of right now, I have no clue as to what to write for those lines. If anyone has any suggestions or wants to help, feel free to.
