about

The death-thrashing creatures of the night, HOWLING, have unleashed their debut album, "A Beast Conceived"! 10 songs of raging, blood-crazed horror Death/Thrash violence with ripping guitar solos and female death metal vocals that sound like a possessed she-wolf chewing her way out of hell! The band is a whirlwind of loud, fast, and thrashing heavy metal, with an emphasis on extremely catchy head banging riffs meant to summon forth the powers of darkness! Get ready for an album loaded with some of the most memorable songs in a long time, all centered around a creepy and flesh-tearing atmospheric "backwoods horror" theme

*The first 250 copies come with a mini "build your own" Howling VHS box mock and an official Howling logo sticker! Limit one per customer!

**Postage rates in the United States have gone up very high, especially for international packages. Sorry for the higher prices, but it now costs over 7 dollars to mail a CD internationally and this is without the plastic case alone. The Howling CD costs more than usual due to including the extra gifts for the first 250 copies sold.

Track Name: As Man Becomes Lycanthrope
As Man Becomes Lycanthrope
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “The Howling” (1981)

A dangerous meeting
A grim encounter
There must be
Something about her
The killer was obsessed
But met his end
Is this the last of him?
Will he be back again?

Upon retreating to the countryside
There would be no place for her to hide
Over time she sees they are a tribe
A pack of wolves in these hills reside
A secret society
Monstrous transformations
Not human, not animal
Monstrous mutations

(guest backing vocal appearance by Waldemar de Marnac)
She hears the howling
She hears the call
The full moon rising
The werewolves stalk

She stands in horror and shock
As man becomes lycanthrope
His evil eyes loom over her
She sees there is no hope

She hears the howling
She hears the call
The full moon rising
The werewolves stalk

Her fate changes
She bears the infection
She must warn them
In an act of insurrection
Track Name: Six Souls For the Witching Hour
Six Souls for the Witching Hour
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “The Fog” (1979)

Cursed by what’s in the fog rolling in
On this night the horror begins
Zombie-like ghosts manifest from the mist
They’re coming for you, don’t try to resist

Long-dead mariners return from their watery graves
To exact their revenge and take 6 souls as slaves

What you can’t see won’t hurt you; it will kill you!

They rise from the sea to claim retribution
Six souls for the witching hour
Hiding in the fog, they make their attack
Six souls to regain their power

Lungs filled without touching the water
What kind of death could this be?
Before midnight, there’s a tapping at your door
With his hook, he wants you to be no more

They rise from the sea to claim retribution
Six souls for the witching hour
Hiding in the fog, they make their attack
Six souls to regain their power
Track Name: Demented Debauchery
Demented Debauchery
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “Mountaintop Motel Massacre” (1983)

She killed her daughter in a hacking frenzy
Chopped to pieces in demented debauchery
Hearing voices inside her insane head
Who is living, who is dead?
Her guilty conscience telling her to kill
Manic compulsions she must fulfill
Please do not disturb her…she already is
Reveling in psychotic bliss

I summon thee, spirits from beyond
Show me a sign, before my time is gone

Wielding a sickle
Thrashing it all around
Blood splashes on the walls
Her body hits the ground
Even in her insanity
She knows she has done wrong
Voices at the funeral
Were right all along

Descending into cobwebbed passageways
A secret door leads to each room
A winding, underground maze
She creates her own dark tomb

(guest backing vocal appearance by Ghoat)
I summon thee, spirits from beyond
Show me a sign, before my time is gone
Track Name: Traumatic Transmutations
Traumatic Transmutations
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “The Beast Within” (1982)

Brutally attacked
Her body stripped and raped
Chained in the cellar
But he escaped
On this night
A beast was conceived
A terror within
No one would believe
After 17 years, a shedding of its skin
Passed through the generations; the beast within

(guest backing vocal appearance by Patrick Bruss)
He’s come back
Hideous reincarnations
In a different form
Traumatic transmutations

A grim discovery
Buried deep in the fog
When they went digging
In Black Pine Bog

All of the bodies
He tried to keep hidden
Brought by his sickness
This ground is forbidden

He’s come back
Hideous reincarnations
In a different form
Traumatic transmutations

He warns her to leave
He feels his power grow
The origins of his anger
He’ll never really know
She tries to break free
But the beast will attack
He implants the evil in her
So he can come back

After 17 years, a shedding of its skin
Passed through the generations; the beast within
Track Name: Savage Psychosis
Savage Psychosis
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “American Gothic” (1987)

Descent on an isolated island
A place no one has seen
Inhabits a psychotic family
God-fearing, dirty, and mean!
She lost her friends to murder
But takes the family’s side
Conforming to their ways
of blood-shed and homicide

Spiraling through madness
Killing them one by one
Savage psychosis
Until the family is gone!

A mummified baby brings memories of her own born
Insanity takes over, leaves her anguished and scorned

Hanging rotted corpses
A cellar full of bodies
Deeper into madness
No one takes heed
She stabs, shoots and beats them
Leaves them in black blood gore
Offs them one by one
Until they are no more!
Track Name: A Night In the Crypt
A Night in the Crypt
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “One Dark Night” (1983)

A fresh corpse interred in the tomb
You’re in for a night of foreboding doom
Telekinetic powers from beyond the grave
Countless cadavers become Raymar’s slaves
Coffins flooding out of the walls
Rotted feet drag mausoleum halls
Bodies oozing with decay and slime
He decides it is your time

No one was ready for a night in the crypt
The wrong night for her initiation
No one was ready for that one dark night
All they got, a grave invitation
No resting in peace
This is real, not a dream
Invidious entities crawling through
The dragging dead are stalking you

His powers cause the dead to rise
Their prank gone wrong causes their demise
Reanimated remains under his command
Until his daughter takes a stand
Against his vengeance from the beyond
To end the evil he has spawned
She finally finds how to defeat his wrath
But he could still come back!
Track Name: Museum of Telepathic Madness
Museum of Telepathic Madness
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “Tourist Trap” (1979)

A wax museum
A tourist trap for lost souls
The vulture is your omen
But you have nowhere else to go
Glowing eyes of a mannequin
Stare as you walk past
His telepathic powers control them
His victims never last

You’re so pretty; it’s a shame you have to die
Tied down, plaster on your face
You can’t breathe, he decides your fate
He’s crazy, and we’re all going to die
Your heart bursts from fright
Your world is dark on this night

His identity is unveiled
Not who you want to believe
His brother is not real
But, it’s too late for you to leave!

You’re so pretty; it’s a shame you have to die
Tied down, plaster on your face
You can’t breathe, he decides your fate
He’s crazy, and we’re all going to die
Your heart bursts from fright
Your world is dark on this night
Track Name: From Spectral Mirrors
From Spectral Mirrors
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “The Boogeyman” (1980)

A disquieting witness into endless reflections
Innocence shattered along with the mirror
An austere spirit unleashed from the past
Dwelling deep, surrounding her with terror

Forever controlled by the murderous night
Brutal stabbing seen by her fragile eyes
Growing older, she didn’t forget
Eerie reflections of the creep’s bleak demise
Going back to where it all began
Shattering images, Evil has been freed
Death takes over, cursed from the butchery
Knife, pitchfork, and scissor tracheotomies

The haunt; it grips her
It won’t let go
The haunt possesses her
From spectral mirrors

Reaping and sowing innocent lives
Blood and gore flowing through the farmlands
Killing wherever the light is reflected
Forces greater than the power of man
Track Name: Vengeance Unearthed
Vengeance Unearthed
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “Pumpkinhead” (1988)

An act of evil shall never go unpunished
Carried through by a demonic creature
Born from the blood of the innocent
Born from the blood of the avenger

The guilty are haunted
The guilty are hunted
Vengeance unearthed
Vengeance confronted

In a frantic, raging fury
The backwoods haggis, he summons
And sheds his blood to conjure
Vengeance: The Demon

Death to the ones who killed his son
Spill their blood for what they have done
No remorse for taking their lives
The creature’s blood thirst thrives
They will pay for their careless acts
They better pray, they better watch their fucking backs

The spell has been cast
It has to run its course
No matter how long it lasts
It’s what you wanted, there should be no remorse!

Death to the ones who killed his son
Spill their blood for what they have done
No remorse for taking their lives
The creature’s blood thirst thrives
Track Name: When The Hills Ran Red
When the Hills Ran Red
Music: Tony Proffer / Lyrics: Vanessa Nocera
Inspired by the film “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” (1982)

Planning to kill the children
Something hidden in the masks
A Celtic ritual with a stolen stone
A celebration of Samhain

In the sleepy town of Santa Mira;
the root of a mass sacrifice
An ancient calling from the Druid gods
Let the blood harvest begin

Trying to hide with nowhere to go
In the watchful eyes of mechanical men
Built to exact his revenge
A celebration of Samhain

But he escapes the grip
of the sinister maskmaker
He must heed a warning to all
Before the innocent meet their end

When the hills ran red
from the blood of children slain
The Celtic Day of the Dead;
A celebration of Samhain

This October 31st
Will be the last Halloween
The season of the witch is here
The festival of Samhain

He tries to stop the wrath
But the ritual continues on
An ancient calling from the Druid gods
Let the blood harvest begin
