Recommendation needed : Eldritich abomination / lovecraftian horror
Even better if the mc is/serve an eldritch abomination / has contact with one. My eternal gratitude if you manage to find one matching the 2 criteria above who isn't crack or where the mc isn't an absolute evil being who just want to see the world burn.
Terramagica | Royal Road In an alternate Victorian Age of the 19th century, the race of the Eldarions, once the rulers of mankind and the other races before their overthrow, are slowly dying out due to poisoning by Terramagica magical energies. In desperation, a group of cultists seek to fulfill the dark prophecy of the Destroyer King, who will bring down the old gods from the heavens and shatter the nations of mankind, enslaving all the races under Eldarion rule once more.
That was rhetorical.
Vigor Mortis has a lot of horror elements to it. A Friendly Voidling is about an Eldritch abomination, but it's friendly so ends up being a little happy go lucky.
There's also Ainōryoku Sentai Nightmærangers, where three people who wake up with eldritch abomination powers try to be superheroes.

Eldritch gods and certain books are also featured.
And Rosemary gave birth to a thousand goats.
I can recommend this story too!
currently, the first book is finished and the second ongoing. The main character himself will evolve into something that matches your requirements later in book 2 and there are several enemies that will match that tone.
Children of Nemeah (epic progression fantasy) | Royal Road
It is a progression fantasy and he starts out (relatively) human. There will be a focus on both, his physical and mental changes as he progresses to change into something that would make Lovecraft proud, but the real horror will start later in book 3 and book 4, when his psyche is able to accept the changes he needs to undergo to win.
ps.: if you want to know specific Infos about how the setting will turn out later, you can PM me.
But I have one matching your criteria called Eldritch Cultist
