Rocktober! Day 12

Today we get all literary thanks to Metallica and their H.P. Lovecraft inspired tune, “The Thing That Should Not Be” from the 1986 metal masterpiece, MASTER OF PUPPETS!

That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.”
– H.P. Lovecraft

Here’s a quickie breakdown of the lyrics and Lovecraft’s story, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, at ENCYCLOPEDIA METALLICA.
