Abominations of Yondo is a collaboration between Cousin Silas (releases on numerous netlabels) and Kevin Busby (of Carya Amara, Audio Space Research etc.). The duo‘s debut album, also called Abominations of Yondo, is a collection of other-worldly music, sounds and atmospheres inspired by the writings of Clark Ashton Smith.
Clark Ashton Smith wrote ornately worded tales of fantasy, mostly during the 1930s. Much of his work was originally published in the influential "pulp" fiction magazine Weird Tales, and he shared some themes and mythologies with his correspondent and fellow teller of weird tales, H. P. Lovecraft (himself the subject of a track on the Cousin Silas album Necropolis Line, released on Earthrid).
Smith’s stories ranged in location from deserts concealing bizarre abominations to distant planets, and in temporal setting from the ancient continent of Hyperborea to Zothique, the last remaining land of a far future age. For more about this album, see earthrid.com/releases/ay01cr/
