cacodaemoniacal love



from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

  • adj. daemonic
  • adj. evil*


From Ancient Greek κακοδαίμων (kakodaimōn, "ill-starred"), from κακός (kakos, "bad") + δαίμων (daimōn, "genius, divinity"). (Wiktionary)


  • Down to the brand names and set design -- the endless Lovecraftian "Gother than thou" catalogue never seems more endless than in these introductory paragraphs, which borrow cred from the Symbolists, the pre-Raphaelites, the Decadents, Baudelaire, Huysmans, and Goya, while one can only double up in helpless laughter at the notion of "nauseous musical instruments" for the production of "dissonances of exquisite morbidity and cacodaemoniacal ghastliness."
