Taking the band name from a short story by H. Lovecraft and a lyrical story telling style akin to Metallica Ride The Lightning era you can see why DAGON has become a Bombworks Records fan favorite with super heavyweight status firmly in the back pocket! The Midwest has always been home of true heavy metal and that is exactly where this Michigan based band takes their inspiration with their fourth album, and second EP, Vindication. You can clearly hear the galloping guitars along the lines of Iced Earth and classic Iron Maiden, hailing allegiance to powerful traditional metal. Vindication is everything Dagon is known for - metal that is brutal and crushing, yet, very catchy. It's a perfect mixture of thrash and death riffs with excellent vocals. Pegging DAGON into a specific genre has never been easy, but fans of elite extreme metal with hooks big enough to catch a sea monster need look no further. Dagon is ready to claim more minions from the ocean of Heavy Metal fans.

The Shadow over Innsmouth is a horror novella by American author H. Lovecraft , written in November—December It forms part of the Cthulhu Mythos , using its motif of a malign undersea civilization, and references several shared elements of the Mythos, including place-names, mythical creatures, and invocations. The Shadow over Innsmouth is the only Lovecraft story that was published in book form during his lifetime. The narrator is a student conducting an antiquarian tour of New England. He travels through the nearby decrepit seaport of Innsmouth which is suggested as a cheaper and potentially interesting next leg of his journey.
