The Skinny: Ctulu play fast and melodic extreme metal in and old Swedish style, but with their own well-defined twist on the genre. The lyrics are about nightmares and other Lovecraft-inspired themes. Earlier this year, Ctulu released their third full-length Seelenspiegelsplitter via Nocturnal Empire. This album continues the path that Sarkomand paved while the lyrical focus now is on the Esoteric Order of Dagon. Various guest musicians helped the band to produce an outstanding album clearly marking their individuality and underlining their standing as the one and only band that’s totally carried away by a Lovecraftian overall conceptualization.
