â•?Welcome to a city where lost souls lurk in every shadow and darkness veils sinister designs, where heavy metal could be the key to salvation...or the gateway to destruction. A fallen hero, a twisted demon, one gorgeous succubus, and an army of chart-topping guitar heroes: the pieces are in place. The Descent beginsâ•?
Motion Comic Teaser Trailer for the new IDW Comics Series, launching March 31st 2010. Featuring new music from Eternal Descent, Performed by Llexi Leon, Gregg Bissonette & Matt Bissonette - Produced by Eddie Kramer.
The lead singer in a popular rock act, Lyra is sharp-witted, beautiful, and has attitude to spare. Her discontent with her life of vice and fame-at-any-cost, however, has opened up a chance for Loki to use her to his own ends.
A near ageless watcher, Sirian was once one of Heavenâ•?s great guardians. Now fallen from grace, he keeps an uncertain and fraught vigil over a city and a people it is his bitter duty to safeguard.â•¨â•¨
Sirianâ•?s weapon of choice was once a large double-edged axe, but in modern society, he has opted to have the blades take the form of an electric guitar, one that can cut through enemies with searing energy.
This powerful demon is cold and calculating, constantly scheming elaborate plots. His abilities enable him to call on the souls of the Damned to rise and serve him. A powerful sorcerer, Loki is also a formidable combatant, and usually wields a long-handled, two-handed hammer, a nod to the god Thor.
Loki is a self-serving villain with personal vendettas and a lust for power, which has driven him a little mad.
The demon Loki wants Lyra for his own. Through her music, heâ•?ll bring his message to the masses, twisting an entire generation and growing new legions of followers. Thereâ•?s only one thing standing in his way. Sirianâ•‰ever-onlooker, nomad, warriorâ•‰travels between Heaven and Hell, ensuring that no one oversteps the mark. Becoming aware of Loki's plot, he sets out to save the girl, and the world, from Lokiâ•?s machinations and the hordes of the Damned.
After a late-night rescue goes awry, Lyra awakens after death, with Lokiâ•?s taint sweeping through her. Sirian decides he'll follow through his decision to save Lyra, helping to shape her afterlife and control her abilities.
With Sirian, Lyra will travel through the many planes between Heaven and Hell, learning to harness her new power. Meanwhile, it becomes apparent that Lyra was a pawn in a far greater scheme. Loki has already provided dark inspiration to countless rock and metal icons, bringing his message to the masses. Unknowingly, their collective imagination will grant Loki access to forgotten relics and powerful gateways, enabling him to unleash his armies of the Damned against all those who would oppose him.
The twelve issues of Eternal Descent chronicle Lyra's transformation into a demon, her relationship with Sirian, and their war against Loki.
