Journey into the Weird Tale of H.P. Lovecraft in our first ever bonus / mini-episode and learn a bit about the literary giant who inspired "The Call of Ktulu," "The Thing That Should Not Be," "All Nightmare Long," and "Dream No More." A genius, a visionary, a recluse, and a person with very problematic personal views, Howard Phillips Lovecraft continues to influence and fascinate metal musicians, film directors, and authors alike, including Opeth, Dream Theater, High On Fire, Guillermo del Toro, and Stephen King.
