Attention Cthulhu cultists! You're only going halfway with your worship of The Great Old Ones if you're not listening to The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets!

This band of raging lunatics plays H. P. Lovecraft inspired music with a driving metalic-alternative beat. They've done the soundtrack to Spaceship Zero, and have numerous albums under their belts, including Hurts Like Hell, Cthulhuriffomania!, and Cthulhu Strikes Back (their newest). The music is deep and moody, yet oddly satirical, with song titles like Burrow Your Way To My Heart (about a girl with ringworm), and Big Robot Dinosaur (about a boy and his father who rampage about in a big robot dinosaur.

Listen! You must listen! They will invade your dreams! Bring one of their CDs to your next Campus Crusade for Cthulhu meeting, and you'll be sure to be the life of the party! And remember, he of the unpronouncable name wants you to.

The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets are the Cthulhu related band.

Merrick Helge Atkinson (has a dog named Hastur), Warren Banks, Robert "Bob" Fugger, Jordan Pratt, and Toren MacBin are the five people responsible for this monstrosity. In concert each of them dress up as verious, well, things from either the Cthulhu mythos or Spaceship Zero. It is quite an experience to be at a concert where two cultists, a fungi from yuggoth, a spaceman and a skeleton are singing about being in love with a deep one. (vivid description in that song too)

A lot of their songs include other samplings and recordings from what seem to be readings from Lovecraftian novels, or scenes out of Spaceship Zero. Cthulhu Dreams, for example starts off with a sinister sounding man trying to get the Necronomicon out of a library at closing time.

Gurgle Gurgle Gurgle.
