Cthulhu (?) in new Guitar Hero: Metallica video game


I'm sure you all already know this, being the young hip video game players that you are. But one of the venues in the new "Guitar Hero: Metallica" video game is called "The Ice Cave."

The band flies to Antarctica in a prop engine plane (a Dornier?), to a stage constructed of ice.


As they start, tentacles rise out of the ground and drag it down to a subterranean lair where a giant monstrous creature slithers and watches (with a giant eye that looks like the one from the Michael Whelan cover of the Ballantine edition of the HPL collections).



The song they play is, of course, "The Thing That Should Not Be":

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

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.
