CRAFTEON released debut album

CRAFTEON - Cosmic Reawakening

American black metal band Crafteon has just released its debut full-length album “Cosmic Reawakening“. Crafteon was conceived by vocalist and guitarist Lord Mordiggian in 2012 in Denver, Colorado. As a teacher of literature and aficionado of horror, Lord Mordi aspired to write an album based on the works of his favorite author, H.P. Lovecraft. The name “Crafteon” is a play-on-words with “Lovecraftian” and “aeon”. This recording prudently recounts an antiquarian bundle of peculiar short stories authored by H.P. Lovecraft, featuring a blasphemous potpourri of amorphous black metal enmeshed with spurious, assonant passages of hope juxtaposed and vanquished by discordant strains of utter despair and madness. Lyrics are an attempt to remain as true as possible to the original text of each H.P. Lovecraft short story (via excerpts from the Public Domain), and where such attempts prove difficult, Lord Mordi has supplied lyrical contributions and revisions while striving to at least mirror Lovecraft’s style and diction. “Dagon” lyrics featuring contributions from Andrew Menefee. “Cosmic Reawakening” is available in their official Bandcamp page both in digital format and physical CD edition.
