What is an HP Lovecraft, and why does he/it need a Radio Hour? It all started back in 1916, when a young author by the name of Howard Philips Lovecraft had his short story, "The Alchemist" published. Even though it was his first short story to receive publication, he became an immediate overnight success. Critics compared his work to Poe and Verne, and hailed Lovecraft as the next great American horror and science fiction author. He enjoyed immense commercial success, and is given ample credit as the inspiration behind several modern fiction authors.
Rather than try to describe the album with my current perspective, I will paste here the promotional copy originally uploaded with it:
Also included for your viewing pleasure is original CD artwork inspired by Lovecraft's tales. You may want to avoid viewing or listening to this album if you are alone and despairing. Such an environment could lead to wild hallucinations or worse yet, a warped perception on reality. We cannot be held responsible for any such...happenings.
In essence we strongly urge you to listen to this collection with the utmost caution and awareness for the path to madness you will undoubtedly embark upon. Also be sure to share this experience with all your friends and family, such mental anguish should not be hoarded by any one mind.
On a side note some Shuggoths have broken loose and our wranglers are working tirelessly to restrain them. Should you, your home or loved ones be eviscerated into the ether, consider it an honor. Not everyone gets to become the foodstuff of an ageless being's wandering pet. Also you probably had nothing going on this weekend anyways.
This album contains instances of graphic themes and scenes of audio violence and may not be suitable for younger listeners.
You may also purchase the digital album on iTunes, Amazon, and elsewhere. The CD is available on our E-store as well. Enjoy the madness you will undoubtedly bring into your life by listening to this album, and share some Lovecraft with someone in your life.
