When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert , he has no idea he's been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon.

He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan.

La befana
La befana
In Italian folklore, Befana is an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on Epiphany Eve (the night of January 5) in a similar way to Saint Nicholas or Santa Claus. This Italian gift-giving spirit is also known as Saint Befana, La Vecchia (the Old Woman), and La Strega (the Witch).The character may have originated in central Italy, then spread as a tradition to the rest of Italy.A popular belief is that her name derives from the Feast of Epiphany or in Italian, "La Festa dell'Epifania". Epifania (Epiphany in English) is a Latin word with Greek origins. Epiphany means either the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6) or “manifestation (of the divinity)." In popular folklore Befana visits all the children of Italy on the eve of the Feast of the Epiphany to fill their socks with candy and presents if they are good or a lump of coal or dark candy if they are bad. Being a good housekeeper, many say she will sweep the floor before she leaves. The child's family typically leaves a small glass of wine and a plate with a few morsels of food, often regional or local, for the Befana.She is usually portrayed as an old lady riding a broomstick through the air wearing a black shawl and is covered in soot because she enters the children's houses through the chimney. She is often smiling and carries a bag or hamper filled with candy, gifts, or both Christian legend had it that Befana was approached by the biblical magi, also known as the Three Wise Men (or the three kings) a few days before the birth of the Infant Jesus. They asked for directions to where the Son of God was, as they had seen his star in the sky, but she did not know. She provided them with shelter for a night, as she was considered the best housekeeper in the village, with the most pleasant home. The magi invited her to join them on the journey to find the baby Jesus, but she declined, stating she was too busy with her housework. Later, La Befana had a change of heart, and tried to search out the astrologers and Jesus. That night she was not able to find them, so to this day, La Befana is searching for the little baby. She leaves all the good children toys and candy (“caramelle”) or fruit, while the bad children get coal (“carbone") . La Befana, corruzione lessicale di epifania attraverso bifania e befania e una tipica figura del folklore di alcune regioni, diffusasi poi in tutta Italia. Appartiene alle figure folkloristiche, dispensatrici di doni, legate alle festivita natalizie.Secondo la tradizione italiana la Befana fa visita ai bambini il 6 gennaio, durante la notte dell'epifania, per riempire le calze lasciate da essi appositamente appese. Nel caso siano stati buoni, il contenuto sara composto da caramelle e cioccolatini, in caso contrario conterranno carbone. Spesso la befana viene descritta come una vecchia, che vola su una scopa. A differenza di una strega e spesso sorridente e ha una borsa o un sacco pieno di ogni squisitezza, regali per i bambini meritevoli, ma anche di carbone per i bambini che non sono stati buoni durante l'anno.

One of the most intense and technical forces in the contemporary death metal world, Origin have returned to stake their claim as the leaders of metal's new wave of extremity with their fifth studio effort, Entity. Origin continue to churn out frantic, hell-paced slabs of metal, but now they further compliment the arrangements with a new found propensity for churning grooves and the hook-laden approach that first reared its ugly yet accessible head on 2008's Antithesis. On that album cycle, the band peaked at #21 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, got regular video play on MTV2's Headbanger's Ball, toured as part of Summer Slaughter 2009 as well as part of many other packages. This was truly their breakthrough moment. Now on follow-up and Nuclear Blast debut, Entity, they have a new vocalist and a new lease on life, jumping out of the gates with an amazing tour with Hate Eternal, Vital Remains and Abysmal Dawn. Running June/July, it will be the beginning of a long and powerful reign for these tech death heavyweights.
