the Big Tusk the Walrus Awakens cover by Anna Kawara-Shems Bendali

bio

THE BIG TUSK IS A CABAL ORIGINATED FROM THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE ANCESTRAL WALRUS. THIS MAMMAL IS THOUGHT TO BE THE VERY SOURCE OF ALL EXISTING VITAL ENERGIES.

HIS WORSHIPPERS HAVE GATHERED AROUND FOUR MYSTICAL RELICS FOUND DEEP DOWN WITHIN THE PRIMITIVE ABYSS : 

The Sacred Trumpet 

TAILLÉE DANS LES DÉFENSES DU MORSE ANCESTRAL AFIN DE FAIRE RÉSONNER SA VOIX.

The Drum of Fate 

MADE OUT OF THE SKIN OF A SABRE-TOOTHED TIGER, WILL COMPEL THE LISTENER’S HEART TO FOLLOW ITS RHYTHM. 

The Celestial Lyre 

A TRADITIONAL FOLK INSTRUMENT OF THE PINNIPED TRIBES, INDUCES IRREVERSIBLE INSANITY.

The ivory organ 

FROM THE SACRED TEMPLE RALLIES THE BIG TUSK FAITHFUL FOR COMMUNION AROUND THE CHANT OF THE WALRUS.

BRUSH UP YOUR MOUSTACHES AND SHARPEN YOUR TUSKS.
THOU SHALT BE A WALRUS OR THOU SHALT BE NOUGHT.
