H.P. Lovecraft's infamous tome functions as one of the lynchpins of his meticulously crafted universe of deep cosmic terror and wavering sanities, a guide to and history of the Great Old Ones and their unfathomable and ancient evil. The book drove many a protagonist mad in Lovecraft's tales and opened doors to unthinkable sights and terrifyingly obscure territories beyond the real. Carrion Black Pit here evokes the aura of the weird and violent associated with the Necronomicon, structured as an invocation of sorts to the Great Old Ones themselves as well as serving as a transcendent piece of sonic manipulation in its own right. Across two massive discs, Carrion Black Pit plunge the listener into an ever growing and hungry cosmic blankness, an anti-kaleidoscopic vision of mysteries and beings that mankind was never meant to know. The intellectual gets rendered into the brutal; the mystic becomes the void.
Altar Of Waste is truly psyched to unveil this vision of hallucinatory existence, a severely intense scourge of sound that comes eerily close to the haunting dreams endured by so many in Lovecraft's fiction. Packaged in a DVD case in a limited edition of 20 hand-numbered copies, with inserts. $15 ppd. in the United States, $23 rest of world.
