JOE SATRIANI, GUS G, MICHAEL AMOTT Battle For Supremacy In 'Eternal Descent Vol. 2'

Continuing to explore the unholy alliance that has long existed between the worlds of heavy metal and fantasy comics, multi-media phenomenon Eternal Descent returns with the second volume of the much-heralded comic saga.

Collecting six single issues, an exclusive "Cobalt" one-shot, and extensive art galleries into a 200-page graphic novel set for release in March by IDW Publishing, "Eternal Descent Volume 2" immerses fans in a dark fantasy world where demons and angels battle for supremacy alongside some of the biggest names in metal, including ARCH ENEMY, FIREWIND, PERIPHERY and Joe Satriani.

With the fallen Sirian consigned to his fate and Lyra consumed by her inner demons, Loki's designs draw ever closer to their terrible conclusion. As the conflict rips into the fabric of time, Gus G. returns with an unlikely guide, offering a glimmer of hope for our heroes... The disturbance reaches far across the universe and heralds the arrival of Joe Satriani, The Extremist, whose incredible energies bring balance to the cosmos, but leave our world consumed by Khaos magic. Michael Amott lies at the heart of this volatile new reality, empowered by mysterious amber artifacts and rivaled only by Misha Mansoor, a time-traveling wanderer wielding unparalleled technology! With lives lost, heroes reborn, and darkness rising, don't miss the climactic resolution to "Eternal Descent Volume 2"!

The brainchild of British guitarist and comic creator Llexi Leon, who has teamed with American animation veteran Shaun McLaughlin and DC Comics writer Justin Peniston to bring his unique artistic vision to fruition, Eternal Descent is set in a fantasy universe where lost souls lurk in every shadow, and darkness veils sinister designs. Heavy metal could be the key to salvation... or the gateway to destruction.

Offering comics, graphic novels, animated shorts, limited edition ESP guitars, a signature Digitech effects pedal and an upcoming video game to keep fans occupied, Eternal Descent is fast becoming an international phenomenon.

Set to become a 21st century cult classic, fans of comics and heavy metal alike will be staggered in the scale of Eternal Descent's ambitions and the second volume of the cult comic series promises to plunge readers even more deeply into the graphic novel's dark, multi-faceted world.
