Blut Aus Nord is now streaming its Lovecraftian Echoes compilation. The compilation features six tracks previously only available through the project’s subscriber-only forum named Order of Outer Sounds, and were recorded between April 2021 and February 2022. Blut Aus Nord points out this is not the follow-up to the 2022 album Disharmonium – Undreamable Abysses, but just 6 tracks released in collaboration with Debemur Morti Productions.
Created as a collaboration between DMP and BLUT AUS NORD, the Order of Outer Sounds was a subscriber-only forum and collective hub which ran over two year-long seasons between February 2020 and February 2022.
Fostering an uplifting sense of community based around the hallucinogenic hellscapes of BLUT AUS NORD, the Order provided the artists with an inventive new playground for experimentation, and a place in which to conjure the cosmic dimensions of Lovecraft via the darkest, most obscure side of their music.
The 6 bespoke tracks comprising «Lovecraftian Echoes» were unveiled in instalments during Season 2 of the forum between April 2021 and February 2022 and were recorded/mixed by Vindsval at Earthsound studio.
Due to their unearthly quality and thematic coherence the tracks are now available to non-Order members in digital format. It must be emphasised that this is NOT the new BLUT AUS NORD album but instead a compilation of custom-made pieces continuing the musical exploration started in 2003 with «The Work Which Transforms God».
The music contained in «Lovecraftian Echoes» has been described variously by OoOS acolytes as: «glorious anthems to the Great Old Ones», «mesmerising», «nightmarish», «beyond frightening», «subterranean», and «madness!»
