An evil, powerful, ancient Egyptian civilization's vessel crosses the Red Sea. Their mission is to pillage and dismantle a nearby civilzation. They do not know that this race of people are mystics, who for centuries have peacfully communed with Mother Earth. Their respect for her cannot be undone; not even in death. What the Egyptian attackers do not realize is that they will soon face their own fates.

They delve in greedily,destroy, steal, kill, and rape. Victory is theirs. But the watchful eye of Mother Earth has never waned. A celebration of their conquest begins as they sail back to their homeland. They drink, chant, and laugh...but the sky begins to blacken, the sea begins to swell, their hearts begin to speed.

The Animal Mother launches her revenge!!

Their vessel is swiftly attacked by a horde of bloodthirsty locusts, rising gale winds, and a vile two headed sea beast. Their bodies are quickly devoured but their souls remain. Now captured minions of the Animal Mother, she will use their imprisoned souls to extinguish the remainder of their civilization upon landfall. A rebirth shall begin...

TEMPLE brings you this concept. The Cleansing, Locusts, The Creature, and Suffocating Winds are.......The Rise of the Animal Mother!
