Introduce Yourselves: Plague Of Carcosa

What is the name of your band?

Plague of Carcosa 

What is the genre of music that you play? 

instrumental Cthulhu doomnoise 

Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today? 

Plague was started by guitarist Eric Zann in his bedroom. The first EP was recorded on his laptop, and the followup was done live in a practice space in 1 take with just 2 microphones. From there, he found a full band for the more Bongripper style releases Hastur, Rats In The Walls, and Ocean Is More Ancient than the Mountains. After the other band members had to move away for their own personal reasons, Eric started working with Alexander Adams just before the pandemic. 

Their newer material sees them drawing influence from the Sunn/Boris collab - longer, more free-formed songs incorporating elements of drone and electronics. 

What can people expect from your music? 

It really depends on the release, but overall, we’d say: dark atmospheres, dense guitar tones, feedback, overdriven Matamps and aluminum guitars, and themes of HP Lovecraft. 

What is the best release that folks should check out from your band? 

It depends on what you like - Ocean Is More Ancient Than The Mountains is our most streamed, so I tend to point people to that one as an introduction. 

Where can people find you on Social Media?

Just Facebook and Instagram. We do not really play the social media game by choice.
