Inspired by demons and primordial chaos, Harridan’s cruelty merges with ceremonial moments starred by melodic riffs that don’t completely discard the coldness and coarseness of a black metal that breathes underground. Conceptually, alongside the occult, we find references to Winter and HP Lovecraft, as well as a hefty dose of all those elements required to create an excellent and chaotic black metal environment.
“The ‘Return God of the Dark’ EP was recorded and mixed for the Shub-Niggurath season. It contains 4 pieces of music from the period 1997-1999. It’s very old material, my first guitar hymns.This is an introduction to the climate and musical path that Harridan took. I can’t honestly and openly say it’s black metal, but I can definitely call my music demon metal. Both lyrically and musically, it refers to the practices of Demonism, Primordial Chaos, and worship of the Great Ancients Azathoth, Cthulhu, Hastur, Shub-Niggurath, Nyarlathotep and Yog-Sothoth. There are also excerpts from the Roman Ritual, which is commonly known as the exorcism of a possessed soul. I acquired this ritual in the original Latin, processed the entire text, reversed its meaning and performed it myself, while recording everything on tape.”
