Nikolas Schreck's initiatory application of the arts began in 1984 when he returned to the West from a life-changing spiritual pilgrimage in Egypt to found the shapeshifting musical ensemble Radio Werewolf.
His artistic and spiritual collaboration with his consort Zeena commenced in 1988, when she became Radio Werewolf's co-director.
Their ritual recordings The Fiery Summons, The Lightning an
d the Sun, Songs for the End of the World, Bring Me the Head of Geraldo Rivera! A Benediction in Four Movements, Witchcraft/Boots: A Tribute to the Sinatras, and Love Conquers All. are experiments in sonic magic designed to alter human consciousness and trigger specific long-range changes in the material universe.
Until 1999, the Schrecks led the magical resistance movement, esoteric research network and radical ecology faction known outwardly as The Werewolf Order.
