Well let's face it, I'm sucker for anything Cthulhu-related and such. Pretty much ANYTHING by Lovecraft I'd enjoy, so if you could recommend me some bands that have that said-style lyrics, then much would be appreciated.

Oh man there are so many...now it´s just up to my forgetful mind to try and remember some of them LOL.
 
Morbid Angel is of course an example, but you probably already knew about them.
Payne´s Gray - Kadath Decoded
Graveyard - The Sea Grave
Arkham Witch - Legions of the Deep

Now, it must have been lost in the deepest abysses of the Web, but I once discovered a "band" named Iä, having two songs about the Cthulhu mythos.
I think it was a side project of Matt Widener (Cretin, Exhumed, Liberteer, Citizen...), but I can't find traces of it anymore. Anyway, I still got the 2 mp3. Better that than nothing.

^There are names of bands, but I'm not sure they deal with Lovecraft mythos in their lyrics.

Exhorder's "The Tragic Period".

There's always Cradle Of Filth's Lovecraft and Witchhearts, but that has probably got fuck all to do with Lovecraft, and I never listen to their lyrics cos I'm too busy looking at the pictures...

Denial from Mexico, their one full-length was chock full of Lovecraft-inspired lyrics.


Sulphur Aeon are heavily inspired by Lovecraft and base most if not all of their lyrics on his works.


Those are the only two bands that spring to mind right now but of course there's the odd song here and there.
To add a few that havent already been mentioned.

Iced Earth - Cthulhu
Agents of Oblivion - Endsmouth
The Vision Bleak - The Curse of Arabia
The Vision Bleak - Kutulu
Cradle of Filth - Cthulhu Dawn
