"...And vast infinities away, past the Gate of Deeper Slumber and the enchanted wood and the garden lands and the Cerenarian Sea and the twilight reaches of Inquanok, the crawling chaos Nyarlathotep strode brooding into the onyx castle atop unknown Kadath in the cold waste, and taunted insolently the mild gods of earth whom he had snatched abruptly from their scented revels in the marvellous sunset city"

I don't know anything about this project, except it's from Armenia and released one demo album in 2011. Some of the track names looked promising at first sight, but the beginning of the album seriously disappointed me, as it's mostly just noise thrown together. The 2nd half of "Æþðŋ" is more interesting, though. "The Demon Speaks" is probably the best track on the whole album, reminding me (and not only me) of Melek-Tha. Overall this debut wasn't very impressive, but there's still some potential visible. Don't know, though, if there will be any more releases or not.

P.S. I wonder if there are any Armenian martial industrial projects in existence? It'd be particularly interesting to hear an "industrial" interpretation of any of these songs...
