The Hastur Cycle - Mike, Shut the Fuck Up

Salutations, scumbags! I have returned from merciful oblivion carrying copious amounts of medicinal resinated heavy metal in a garbage bag slung over my shoulder, scraping down your chimney like a loathesome Santa. A recent re-reading of The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath goosed your foul narrator to the fact that Unspeakable Hastur hasn't been spoken of enough here in the Swamp, so let's annihilate life as we know it with this wacky thrash record, which is brief but extremely memorable, like being headbutted by a goat. Note the two subtle puns - not only the drug related band initials but also the seemingly silly album title, obviously a sly nod to He Who Shall Not Be Named. Say it aloud with me:
Hastur Hastur Hastuuuuurrrrrrrrrr


  1. Nice! I actually just read Robert W. Chambers' "The King in Yellow," so I am definitely geared for this.

    I will note, on the other hand, that I wish I had read just a little but more of the wiki page for that book so that I would have known that the Mythos material didn't run through the whole of the work!

    Keep up the good work, and, fair fellow, don't you forget your readers who hang on your every post... dangling in the wind...
