Catacombs was a doom metal solo project of Xathagorra Mlandroth[1], real name John del Russi[2]. Catacombs' music was deeply inspired by Lovecraftian horror and the Cthulhu Mythos, often directly referencing it lyrically[3][self-published source?][4]. The project followed Xathagorra's other endeavor Hierophant[5] but was concluded when Xathagorra began releasing all his subsequent music under the name Xathagorra[6] through his record label Xathagorra Industries[7]. Xathagorra Industries re-released Catacombs albums in physical format as well as through Xathagorra's Bandcamp page[8].
