We are "Raid"
When the hands reach for midnight the locals flock to their slumbers
and the mythical demon known as Raid emerges from a deep, darkened abyss.
Little is known where this winged, infernal creature comes from or why it is here, but what is known is it affects the auditory nerve directly, causing panic and subsonic seizures.
Then when the clock strikes 3am it evaporates, only to return tomorrow to create cataclysmic chaos, once again.
