It's the most horrible time of the year!

A Very Scary Solstice finally merges the wonderful tradition of merry holiday carolling with the cosmic horror of the Cthulhu Mythos. The result is a CD and sing-along songbook that features twenty-five holiday favorites infused with a liberal dose of madness, horror and otherworldly blasphemies.

The CD features a cast of professional singers with each number beautifully arranged and fully orchestrated. Styles range from the classical to contemporary to nostalgic and just plain weird.

Our new and improved sing-along songbook features a handy pronunciation guide, an introduction by celebrated Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi, and the full lyrics to all of the carols, complete with ample footnotes teeming with bizarre trivia about the carols and their underlying mythos connections! And to top it off, we've included sheet music to assist you in your solstice warbling. Get a Choir Pack of four songbooks for the price of three, and go caroling with your friends and family!

NOW AVAILABLE VIA DOWNLOAD - Unavailable for many years, you can now get A Very Scary Solstice as a digital download of MP3 files. And, if you order it on CD, it comes with a FREE digital download.

Was surprised the songbooks were so professional

Anja Hoffmann
Love It!

I'm usually not one for listening to Holiday music a lot, but I love this album. The music is great, the new texts definitely fun, and the production value is really high. I definitely will make A Very Scary Solstice a Holiday tradition from now on.

Carlos Enrique Armenta Tron

I have been hearing these songs for years, and I hardly remember the original lyrics. My wife and I sing them every year. Now that I have the CD, song book and digital download I am delighted.

Cameron Gregory

Ah, this takes me back.

Nowhere good, but still; back. It's the first Christmas music I've heard, ever, that doesn't make me feel like doing unspeakable things to a food court standee. Playing it, I found myself in an actual festive mood, and soon, to the surprise but mostly horror of innocent bystanders, singing along. I've never been a Christmas person, but for the last few years, found my own traditions and celebrated it on my own terms. This was just what it needed.
As with all Society productions, a lot of love went into this, and it shows. It's polished with its fun sound effects and use of instruments (the accordion in "Fish-Men" kills me), yet, unlike most Christmas music, has an intimate, outsider-y quality that invites you in with a heartwarming "room for one more". It reminds me of those parody songs we'd pull out around the summer camp fire when the counsellors weren't looking. If you don't feel like singing, the songbook is a joy to read while sipping your tea. And, Lovecraft connoisseurs or not, everyone can enjoy this. Funeral biscuit, anyone?
