The Call of Ktulu

This post has nothing to do with Mars, but I’m learning so much from Tor.com’s Cthulhu Month that I decided to play along with this awesome ten-minute music video of heavy metal band Metallica performing its classic 1984 instrumental tribute to cosmic horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Ktulu,” live with Michael Kamen conducting the San Francisco Symphony, recorded in April 1999 at the Berkeley Community Theatre.

If you're shopping for a younger metalhead with classical music training this holiday season, consider buying him/her the CD or DVD of Metallica's monumental S&M live album (1999).
