Regarding the new song, THE GREAT OLD ONES comment:

"I see it at the horizon, like in my nightmare, a gigantic black swan, the devil reef, fascination and fear"*

"We are very proud to present this first track taken from our new album 'EOD – A Tale Of Dark Legacy'. We think that "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" stands for all that we wanted to achieve with this record: it is powerful, violent, epic, and of course heavily atmospheric and emotion driven. In the context of our conceptual story, this chapter tells of the arrival of the protagonist in the eponymous infamous city. He is gazing over the derelict harbour and remembering the frightening journal of his ancestor, he knows that nothing will ever be the same again."

"I penetrated into darkness, visions of chaos, visions of death, churches to ashes, demented cult, only signs of sickness."*

*Quoted from 'EOD, A Tale of Dark Legacy', an original sequel of the H. P. Lovecraft story "The Shadow Over Innsmouth".
