In H P Lovecraft's cosmology, there are two sets of gods: the Elder Gods and the Other Gods. The Other Gods are the nasty "mindless blasphemies" from outside the capacity of humanity to understand. Most of the time, they are asleep and/or insane, and would like to see humanity dead, devoured, or made slaves. They hate humanity, and don't care much about what we have to say about it. See Cthulhu, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, and Shub-Niggurath.
