"Von unaussprechlichen Kulten" is the title of a song by death metal band Nile from their 2005 album Annihilation of the Wicked. In the liner notes of the album, band member Karl Sanders relates that after using a fictional quote from Unaussprechlichen Kulten in his side project solo album Saurian Meditation, he was contacted by a literary history student. The student claimed to have found a catalog reference to a missing volume of a work, published in Hamburg in 1837, whose author bore the name "Frederick von Juntz".
The following quote comes from the Saurian Meditation album:
I hath dreamed the dreams of the pre-human Serpent-Folk,
and communed with long-dead reptiles:
and eagerly watched through the Ages
the unending sorrows and suffering of humankind.
I await the day when the hand of doom shall rise,
and cast aside the remnants of a jaded, decayed, war-exhausted mankind:
and Those who Crawl and Slither shall again inherit the Earth.
Careful readers will recognise the final passages of H. P. Lovecraft's short story "Dagon".
