  • Description

    Lovecraft is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for those who play metal, and tributes to the great visionary of Providence have been countless more. I am one of those who have seen the faces of the Great Old Ones, add now Swedes HEAD OF THE DEMON, all but eschew the usual clichés based upon tentacles and unspeakable horrors. Theirs is a metal cross, hypnotic, boned, played mainly on the rawness of riffs and chants that are repeated cyclically. The psychedelic vertigo is assured and with it the stimulation of perceptions that open windows to mysterious parallel dimensions. Saibot's voice seems that of Tom G.Warrior mentally dissociated under acid, while the six-strings of Konstantin Papavassilou - former guitarist of Kaamos and the first incarnation of Saturnalia Temple - constantly seeks ways of expressive and original yet oblique metal without harking metal altogether. The long ramblings of “Phantasmagoria” and “They Lie In Wait - Riding The Waste” creep ominously between the proto-doom Sabbath realms and the atmosphere of Mortuary Drape’s cenotaph, never fully enjoying one or the other. The key, however, adds the ancient and mysterious sound of an organ, which gives additional character to a ritualistic music, extremely gruesome. HEAD OF THE DEMON realized that in order to see the true horror and the unfathomable depths narrated by Lovecraft you do not need to travel to the edge of the cosmos. Just look in our own head. In the demon's head.
