The Elder Sign (2008)

The band name "Nyarlathotep" is taken from the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, whose famed Cthulhu mythos has greatly influenced the rest of the band's work, including the title track of their RPM '08 Album, "The Elder Sign," and served as a basis for "The Dreamer," "Risen," "The Call," and "Even Death May Die" as well. "The Re-Animator" is also based on H.P. Lovecraft's work, and features samples from the movie "The Re-Animator."

The Book of Flesh (2009)

RMP '09 album.

Emperor of the Kingdom Dolorous (2010)

Metal album that focuses on the two poems Paradise Lost and The Divine Comedy. Recorded with a Roland TD-3 drumset, a BC Rich Warlock ran through a Tiny Terror, using a Lexicon Omega and the REAPER software. If you're not a metal fan but still curious, try Paradise Lost and Gnawed in the Mouth of Satan.

BIOGRAPHY

Nyarlathotep is the metal-oriented project of two brothers at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Having now completed three years of RPM without ever actually finding a bassist or vocalist, they are going to try and stop saying that they're going to find them for next year - clearly, it's not going to happen.
