about

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect."
-Chief Si'ahl, Duwamish Tribe

North America has a rich history of fascinating folkloric tradition originating from the indigenous peoples of this beautiful land. While lycanthropic beasts are noted in European folklore dating back many centuries, we have our own traditions and tales of strange cryptids lurking in the woods. While the earliest modern-day sighting of the Beast of Bray Road in Wisconsin dates back to the 1930's, and the Michigan Dogman was first photographed in the 1960's, the oral tradition pertaining to hybrid bipedal/wolfen beasts can be found much further back, including references to the skin-changing loup-garou and shunka-warak'in, a beast known to sneak into camps to carry off livestock. As "modern" civilization encroaches further upon sylvan lands, things that were once hidden may soon come to light. One thing is certain - there are many mysteries in the woods. Beware the beast.

lyrics

The scent of fresh fear fills my nostrils
The north wind blowing at my back

Here before the white man
Here forever
The time of my ascension is close at hand
Your puny weapons are useless
I am immortal
I am here

Stay out of the forest
Stay in your homes
My strength is legendary
I'll break your bones

Here before the white man
Here forever
The time of my ascension is close at hand
Your puny weapons are useless
Bow before me, human
I am here

Beat a hasty retreat
Back to your town
Beat a hasty retreat
Back to your town

The beast
Is coming
Beware
The beast

Gnawing
Tearing
Screaming
Gnawing
Tearing
Screaming

Free to roam the woods again
The disgrace of humankind
Extinguished forevermore

Here before the white man
Here forever
