The Unquiet Void
Yet another ambiant CD based on the works of HP Lovecraft. There seems to be a real glut of Cthulhu-inspired music at the moment. Guess the Great Old One is stiring again and affecting musician’s minds. He needs to try harder. This is an all instrumental album that I assume was done to accompany the reading (and for some of us writing) of mythos tales. For me, at least, it does not really do the trick. Its just vaguely creepy background music that adds nothing to either the reading of a tale nor the writing of one. In fact, to be honest this CD falls flat. Jason Wallach is obviously a talented musician, but this stuff is boring. I suspect many of the budding Lovecraft movie makers might find something of use on here. I am rather guessing that putting me to sleep was not on his agenda. I suppose if you like ambient music and you read Mythos tales, you might like this sort of thing. Slayer, Metallica (old) or even the excellent Nox Arcana are far more appropriate.
