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

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

Maybe they drove lovecraftian characters to madness by playing Paranoid;p

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.
