Title The Call Of Ktulu
Artist Metallica
Album S&M [1999] | Track 2
Ride The Lightning [1984] | Track 8

"The Call of Ktulu" was Metallica's second instrumental piece, following the first instrumental "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth" from Kill 'Em All. The song's working title was "When Hell Freezes Over".

The idea of the piece "The Call of Ktulu" is based upon H. P. Lovecraft's book The Shadow Over Innsmouth which was first introduced to the rest of the band by Cliff Burton. The piece's name was taken from one of H.P. Lovecraft's main stories featuring Cthulhu, The Call of Cthulhu, which was written in 1928 for the magazine Weird Tales. The name "Ktulu" is originally written "Cthulhu" by H.P. Lovecraft. In the story, it says that mentioning the name Cthulhu (Verbally or written) will bring him closer. Metallica changed the title to "Ktulu", in fear of the beast.
"The Call of Ktulu" is also the last piece to include songwriting credit for Dave Mustaine. Mustaine later recorded the song "Hangar 18" for Megadeth's 1990 album Rust in Peace. Both pieces have the same chord progression in the intro.
