Poking a hole with his long black pen into the terrifying unreality of the cosmos, horror writer H.P. Lovecraft was the most significant metal mastermind of 100 years ago. Today, Bloody Roots explores metal songs drawn from Lovecraft’s tales of Cthulu, Dr. Herbert West, the Dagon fish cult, and Dunwich horrors, with essential chilling tracks by Black Sabbath, Metallica, Celtic Frost, Morbid Angel, Electric Wizard, the Black Dahlia Murder, and more!

For a celebration of movies based on H.P. Lovecraft stories, including DAGON, RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, and EVIL DEAD, check out HEAVY METAL MOVIES, by Mike McPadden by clicking HERE.
