It is our pleasure to introduce to you all a project from Mars Homeworld whom you all may know by now is the Reader/Producer of our audiobook of The Friendly Horror. Out of the Aeons: Music From A New Dark Age, a new music project inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft featuring composers Reber Clark, Mars Homeworld, Troy Sterling Nies & Will Severin. This epic horror-themed music project was recently released as a digital download. It’s a truly unique project, traversing a wide variety of musical styles, with each track inspired by a different Lovecraft story and it also features narration by Doug Jones (Abe Sapien from Hellboy, Pan from Pan’s Labyrinth, etc.)
Capturing the invocations of the Old Ones is no easy task; it is not for the faint of heart, nor weak of spirit. Individually, composers Reber Clark (HPLHS), Mars Homeworld (Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown), Troy Sterling Nies (HPLHS) & Will Severin (The Thing on the Doorstep) have risen to the challenge time and again to provide that most elusive of music; Lovecraftian soundtracks. Together, they join forces to commit the music of the spheres to a new recording. Each track based on a different H.P. Lovecraft tale and traversing musical styles from orchestral to ambient to rock, with narration by genre favorite Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer). This project is a must-have for H.P. Lovecraft fans and collectors everywhere.
