Deciphering Poisoned Dreams
In 2000 I read the S.T. Joshi H.P. Lovecraft biography, Lovecraft: A Life. At the time I was having a bout with my own personal darkness and the pieces came together. I knew I wanted to do a third album and I knew it was going to be inspired by Lovecraft, but that's all I had. It was in 2001, when I saw the Stuart Gordon film Dagon, that I realized the structure for my project.
In Gordon's film, screenwriter Denis Paoli integrated two of Lovecraft's stories: Dagon (1917) and The Shadow Over Innsmouth (1935) as if a prophecy were to unfold. I realized that Lovecraft might've been painting a much larger picture rather than just penning short stories. I wanted to tell the unfolding of events which would set in motion that which cannot be undone.
Firstly I needed to establish what said prophecy is - the reawakening of Kutulu (Cthulhu). Then I needed to establish the means to the end, the who, what, when, where and why of it. So again, I turned to the written page and did not stray from it - the material was far too rich and substantial to substitute any part of it. So I will now detail the process with which Poisoned Dreams was realized and crafted:
