Commented frontman Dennie Grondelaers: “Haunter of the Dark is based on two Lovecraft-stories. The first one, ‘The Haunter of the Dark’, covers the larger part of the lyrics. The second, ‘The Case of Charles Dexter Ward’, is the story from which the unpronounceable intro and intermezzo originate. It’s about a man who, while exploring a long abandoned church, unknowingly summons an avatar of a malign god named Nyarlathotep. The following days describe his futile attempts to escape the horrible faith he called upon himself.”
