Comets Ov Cupid live Devil’s Night 2017



New Comets Ov Cupid EP. Over the last few years Comets Ov Cupid has taken on a power trio formation to play more metallic instrumental Space Rock pieces. Erik Wivinus (bass) and Matt Entsminger (drums) both hailing from the legendary Minneapolis Space Rock Band Thunderbolt Pagoda. Erik and Matt bring forth a volcanic energy that really moves Comets into some exciting new territory. I hope you enjoy. Dave Onnen of Thunderbolt Pagoda at the recording helm. Best when played loud.


Comets Ov Cupid “Medusa Of The Skies” Live Aug 28, 2015

Comets Ov Cupid
Guitar: Jason Kesselring
Bass: Erik Wivinus

Live at Eagles Club
Minneapolis Mn
Aug 28, 2015. The Medusa of the Skies
Clark Ashton Smith
Like a worm-fretted visage from the tomb,
The moon unswathes her hollow, shrunken head,
Launching such light as foulders on the dead
From pallid skies more death-like than the gloom.
Under her beams the breasted lands assume
Dead hues, and charnel shapes unceremented;
And shadows that towering sepulchers might shed
Move livid as the shadows on dials of doom.

On hills like tumuli, and waters mute,
A whiteness steals as of a world made still
When reptant Death at last rears absolute—
An earth now frozen by malefice of eyes
Aeonian dooms and realm-deep rigors fill—
The gaze of that Medusa of the skies.
