The Darkest Of The Hillside Thickets

since circa 1992
The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets is a band that is dedicated to promoting the literature of H.P. Lovecraft, who wrote of lost cities, tainted geneology, alien gods, and that fabled tome, The Necronomicon. The Thickets haven't been able to get ahold of the ancient spellbook, but they've got their own brand of corruption. They're on a Lovecraft binge of madness, and they mean to take you with them. The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets have a reputation for entrancing and inciting their live audiences with their melodic blend of energetic punk and rock, while wearing graphic costumes that help bring their good-naturedly macabre songs to life. Their new album is an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Out of Time."
