Whew. How are you all doing? Are you still with me as we press on towards the final stages of our “New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013”? Man I sure hope so because this has been a ride like no other and I am loving getting the plans of the Metal and Rock greats out to your computer or mobile device screens. Here we go with Chapter Ten. Enjoy.

1. Jason Lekberg (Ikillya): My resolution for 2013 is to make the best album of my career thus far and hopefully share it with as many people as possible. 🙂

2. Michael Scondotto (The Last Stand/Inhuman): My New Year’s Music Resolution is to play as many shows as possible with The Last Stand, as our debut full length “The Time Is Now” comes out on January 22nd on Eulogy Recordings. Aside from that, look for another Inhuman vinyl edition and maybe my Metal project will surface sometime in 2013???

3. Alberto Rigoni (Solo Artist): Hey world, wanna still hear some good quality music in the future? Please support the bands and artists purchasing their music, digital or CD.. otherwise they will disappear!

An Overview Of IDW Publishing’s “Eternal Descent” Issue #3

Welcome back, I am continuing and actually finishing up with the discussions about the first few issues of the IDW Published title “Eternal Descent” and since I had been out of the regular collecting mode for a few years l was not as up on this as I would have liked to be. The premise of the comic is that of an “Urban Gothic Fantasy” and it’s the brainchild of musician/writer Llexi Leon. Leon is the founder of a label called Incendiary Records and he has created the virtual band Eternal Descent to tell his stories. Over time he realized that music would not be able to deliver the stories in the same fashion as the comics and here we are. It’s an epic fantasy and mystery that pits good against evil and does so with some of the Metal world’s biggest stars as guest characters along the way. I got my hands on the first three issues of the title and offer up some overview on each of them along with some cover art. This is the summary of the third issue. Enjoy.

Issue #3: Loki starts off the action by taking over the mind of an as yet unnamed Rocker but it’s obvious he is a member of the Power Metal band Firewind. More clues unravel about the mysteries of Lyra Constance who now seems to be travelling with Sirian in order to make more sense about her past and present. The two meet up with guitarist Gus G. in order to help out their singer Apollo (who was the victim at the stories opener). Some magic guitar from our Metallic Angel helps the band to get back onstage and smite the demons with fire, lightning and other powerful energy bolts. The crowd merely thinks they got one hell of a light show during the Firewind gig. The adventure continues.
