Shub-Niggurath

Here's some dark Lovecraftian Zeuhl Prog from Shub-Niggurath. Shub-Niggurath hailed from France and were bong buddies with the seminal Magma. Imagine a jazz band condemned to play for an eternity in some smoky dive in R'lyeh or a Beksinski painting and you get an idea of Shub-Niggurath's immense and heavy trip. Confusing and menacing as their name implies. Essential.

Weird stuff but very good. And your description is perfect. Have you heard Der Nebel Nur In Klarer Luft? You should!

This is album certainly is bizarre, but quite charming. Excellent post.

I think their best achievement was the last album "Testament" with unreleased tracks - in some places described as deconstructed death metal. I uploaded it here:

Uh, whoa. Just checked this out, and it's incredible. A "why have I not heard this sooner" since I'm a Magma freak.

THANKS!
