Lovecraft - Azathoth's Court Musicians by KingOvRats Lovecraft - Azathoth's Court Musicians by KingOvRats
Developing further from shapless larvae the Other Gods display amazing variety of shapes and formes.

According to the quotes I gave these

*bat wings
*flute like vocal organs
* the top variety, has stiff membranes and heavy stalks that are probably capable of making the drum-like sounds.

amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin, monotonous whine of accursed flutes; to which detestable pounding and piping dance slowly, awkwardly, and absurdly the gigantic Ultimate gods

H. P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath

Here the vast Lord of All in darkness muttered
Things he had dreamed but could not understand,
While near him shapeless bat-things flopped and fluttered
In idiot vortices that ray-streams fanned.


H. P. Lovecraft, Fungi from Yuggoth XXII. Azathoth

If she could cause people to be insane with playing it she would have more chances to fullfill her dream and get a job offer from Azathoth's Court:D

Even though they use flutes and drums, I get the feeling that they play great Black Sabbath covers.

If some FOOL or lunatic summons Azathoth and he arrives - best if at least one of these -musicians- comes with him, as its -music- will delay Azathoth having a fit ! The sight of Azathoth induces insanity !!

Don't the musicians themselves cause insanity too?

I think the story fo erich Zann might suggest that.

You KNOW that you're approaching the throne of Azathoth, when you hear the flutes & the drums. But get close enough to hear the music clearly -and you're in mortal danger !

Awesome! we almost don't see these guys depicted around. It never ocurred to me that they'd have flute and drum-like organs, which make more sense in context.
