Sludge metal band Conan has released an official music video for their track “Foehammer”, which comes from their upcoming album Blood Eagle (out February 28th via Napalm Records).

While starting out small, the creature grows and grows to unimaginable sizes, eventually lording over the entire planet. It’s seriously badass, so get to watching!
I’ve long loved the Lovecraft-ian style horror films, the ones that have a great deal of supernatural, cultist mystery. Oh, and the tentacles are a big draw as well. Something about tentacled creatures just gets my horror imagination churning in overtime.
So when I was sent an email with the subject line “Puppet Cthulu Music Video”, I probably clicked on that link in near record time. And what I saw definitely did not disappoint. Director Anthony Carpendale created a comedy-horror video for the song “Sleeve”, from UK prog rock band Thumpermonkey. Featuring the full Cthulu mythos of H.P. Lovecraft squeezed into 5 minutes, it’s well worth giving a look. Check it out below along with a short making-of video!
I wonder what type of presents Cthulu would place under the Christmas tree after he squirmed his way through the chimney? Fallout style gorebags filled with an assortment of squishy body parts? I don’t know about you but I’d definitely prefer that over a stocking filled with coal.
Head past the break to see the while card, bestowed upon us from the lovely folks at Funcom to celebrate the season while also giving a slight nod to their upcoming fantasy horror-ish MMO The Secret World. READ MORE
