“Sometimes, in the throes of a nightmare when unseen powers whirl one over the roofs of strange dead cities towards the grinning chasm of Nis, it is a relief and even a delight to shriek wildly and throw oneself voluntarily along with the hideous vortex of dream-doom into whatever bottomless gulf may yawn.”

“Chaosmogonic Rituals Of Fear” is the first volume in the YOGSOTHERY trilogy of metal tributes to the genius of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and his literary creations. 120 years after his birth, 4 underground bands passed the Gates of Unknown to distill their Lovecraftian cosmic visions of horror and madness in 4 monumental tracks, exclusive to this release.

Secretly assembled during the years, the album is a 78-minute opus of obscure avant-garde prog metal, abysmal dark soundscapes and frightening blackened space-doom courtesy of the Finnish avant-masters AARNI and UMBRA NIHIL, the cosmic-ambient psychonauts JÄÄPORTIT (FIN) and the mysterious space-doom project CAPUT LVIIIm (ITA).
