Galaxicon: Old Gods

Old Gods by Galaxicon If you’re looking for some doomy Cthulhoid metal to grind away on, look no further than Memphis’ own Galaxicon. They have a new-ish (July 2012) album, Old Gods, and it absolutely shreds. You can download it on their BandCamp page, or score a CD/Download combo from their store for dirt cheap.

The Adventure’s of Lil’ Cthulhu by TheZebu has our beloved (not-so) dark master waking up from his nap under sea in the city of R’lyeh and romping about with his buddies on adventures across space and time. It’s a playful, tongue in cheek approach to the Cthulhu Mythos and guaranteed to brighten anyone’s day.
