A new record of the French Lovecraft loving black metal band The great old ones is always welcome. This time they wrote some sort of concept record were they bring us a possible continuation of Lovecraft’s classic story: Shadows over Innsmouth.
Musically The great old ones use fast and furious black metal, atmospheric passages, post rock influences and soundtrack like intermezzo’s to create one big haunting listening experience. Bands like Altar of Plagues or even fellow country men Blut aus nord come to mind while listening to this. Impressive.
