Xothun Atlanta, Georgia

Like a blue whale in heat, Xothun is slow, heavy, and noisy. It is fuzzed-out doom riffs, thick droning chords, and electronic ambient soundscapes – a ground shaking, head-splitting wall of sound accompanied by the ramblings of a reclusive heretic.

Track Name: de praestigiis daemonium
From this circle, I command thee
To kneel before me.
To do my bidding, unerring, unceasing
In the name of Solomon the King.
Track Name: Petition and Oath
May the moon bear witness and hold no grudge
An eye for eye, blood for blood.
Track Name: The Dreamer
From the fertile plains, where darkness springs,
gaunts and ghasts and winged black beasts
frolic beyond the moonlight's reach
in the ruins of once great Parth

The writhing mass of impish fury
winds its way through a non-Euclidean nightmare
of Cyclopean splendor, immense and foreboding.
Their hideous mouths cry, "No mercy! No pity!"

Alone in his chamber in the obsidian tower
his crimson robes trimmed in tears of gold,
the last Dreamer of men prepares for his final sleep.
Track Name: Servant of the Nameless
By the light of the blazing sun
and the cold dead moon
he offers sacrifice to the Nameless Ones.

Their deathless servant prowls
through time ravaged halls
he marks the passing aeons
and awaits Their return.

As the sun goes down
for one last time
and the moon falls into the sea,
the city walls turn to dust beneath his feet
but still he waits, a promise to keep.
