The Church fabricated stories of a large beast with flaming eyes that would haunt the landscapes and deal instant death to anyone who happened to look upon it. The Church had no understanding of the science behind the plague and believed that humanity had been condemned by God to suffer for their sins. As a result they put the fear of God's wrath into the minds of the people, believing that The Bearer would come to collect their souls.
It shall arise from beyond this world,
A fiend transformed,
Taking shape of a hound,
A Malevolent Lord, Satan's abhorrent beast,
Summoned to feast upon human flesh.
The Church seek control,
Through holy propaganda,
You must run, escape this horror,
The bearer awaits those who stay.
Feel the fear Consume,
Feel the wraith of God,
Feel your guilt boil inside and punish you,
Feel the fear overcome,
Terrified by the bearer,
Feel its breath now your heart beats no more.
From shadows it creeps,
Untold horrors it bellows,
Black as coal, it reeks of brimstone,
Its eyes glow red, its gaze does pierce,
To look upon the hound will bring instant death.
