Death metal from Minneapolis, MN
Ancient Sumerian legends speak of a vile creature that was believed to be comprised of little more than evil and blood lust. Their stories describe a mystical beast responsible for devouring entire villages after systematically stalking and murdering all of it's inhabitants.
It's killing methods varied from victim to victim and, frighteningly enough, so did it's appearance. Eyewitness accounts claim to have seen the creature manifest itself into everything from gigantic snakes, bears, and wolves to swarms of insects, and in some cases the dead ancestors of the villagers themselves. Seemingly the only contestant nature of the beast was that it left next to no one living and the corpses would all vanish, leaving only puddles of blood as evidence of the slaughter.
Modern day scholars have theorized that many stories, such as werewolves, vampires, skin walkers, and even biblical plagues can be attributed to this single being. Interestingly enough, the Sumerians refused to name this entity. They largerly believed that whatever this evil was, it fed on their fears and that naming it would only enable it grow stronger. While this nameless horror seems to be beyond belief, our guitarist Brian once had a Savannah monitor named Krawg and that seemed metal enough for us.
