METALLICA : THE THING THAT SHOULD NOT BE [MASTER OF PUPPETS, 1986]

Το “απόλυτο” τραγούδι των καιρών, ο ύμνος των Metallica στον Μέγα Κθούλου, από το Master Of Puppets.
The “absolute” song of the times,
Metallica’ s hymn to the Great Cthulhu, from Master Of Puppets.

Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light
Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for father, roaming free
Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Great old one
Forbidden site
He searches
Hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell
Crawling chaos, underground
Cult has summoned, twisted sound
Out from ruins once possessed
Fallen city, living death
Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Timeless sleep
Has been upset
He awakens
Hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell
In madness you dwell
Not dead which eternal lie
Stranger eons death may die
Drain you of your sanity
Face the thing that should not be
Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Great old one
Forbidden site
He searches
Hunter of the shadows is rising
Immortal
In madness you dwell

    It is perfect for the time. The title brings to mind Led Zeppelin’s excellent song “What Is And What Should Never Be”.

      Funny thing is people thing the title comes from HP Lovecraft’s “Shadow Over Innsmouth” but there’s no such phrase there.
      Actually it comes from another Lovecraft’s masterpiece, “At The Mountains Of Madness”.
      And it is not a reference to the almighty Cthulhu, but to the abominable Shoggoths.

        How much the Sloggoths need to rebel against the tyrannical Elder Things of today.

    That was fun!
    It’s so great when you play music I didn’t really listen to, because I thought I didn’t like it.
    Suddenly, I like it…. or at least the song you have chosen.
