Hastur – A Cryo Chamber Collaboration released
A 2 hour dark soundscape album recorded by over 20 ambient artists to pay tribute to H.P. Lovecraft.
Dark sounds from hidden courts, ancient temples and dilapidated and forgotten civilizations.
“Some name him Hastur – others Assatur, Hali or Kaiwan. The last can, to the erudite mind, whisper something of where the supernal alliances may lie. The men of Leng are purported to know more, but that is no place for wholesome minds. Better then to seek out a Shantak. It will doubtless whisper of onyx and a frigid wind, urging you ever northward and upward. Were ye to follow, ye may glean the answers ye seek. But they would do you little good, once the unrelenting drums have hold on thee. It is better, sometimes, not to know whom ye serve.” – Excerpt from Digibook
So is this a compilation?
No, this is a collaboration and huge undertaking. Over 20 artists linked studios and sound for over a year so that they could work with each other. This led to a deep collaborative exploration of the Mythos and Hastur
