Anniversary Hard Cover Edition of Book on Lovecraft Music Released
A special Tenth Anniversary Hard Cover Edition of The Strange Sound of Cthulhu: Music Inspired by the Writings of H.P. Lovecraft has been released.
The Strange Sound of Cthulhu... has earned some great reviews in the ten years since it was released. For instance, in "Dark Realms" magazine, Russell Williams said, "'The Strange Sound of Cthulhu' is a fascinating compilation of musical artists who have paid homage to the father of modern horror, in turn adding their own new chapters to Lovecraft¹s ever-growing cult mythology. Highly recommended for rock historians and Lovecraft aficionados alike." H.P. Lovecraft expert S.T. Joshi said the book was "one of the most interesting books I've ever read."
The title to the new book Poetry of the Air comes from a quote attributed to Jean-Paul Richter: " Music is the poetry of the air." The book includes exclusive interviews with musicians including Tommy James, Bun E. Carlos, members or former members of bands including Judas Priest, Yes, Rage, Klaatu, Genesis, Hawkind, King's X, Head East, California Guitar Trio, King Crimson, Dream Theater, Uriah Heep, Electric Prunes and many more. The interviews all bring unique perspectives to the passion that is music. Heath Alberts of "The Rockford Blog" called it "ridiculously interesting"
