All of the compositions and lyrics (and of course the title of the Album) are inspired by the novels of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, the top author of the fantasy and horror genre, and his Cthulhu mystical Mythology.

It is also dedicated to the great Ancient Hellenic Philosopher "Iraklitos"

He and H.P. Lovecraft inspired me with their "Parallel Worlds".
