ANNOUNCING: HEIRS OF ISILDUR vs TALES FROM NOCTURNIA ALBUM + COMIC to launch on KICKSTARTER 4.16.21!
InSymmetry Creations LLC (aka the content creation pair of Matt Knowles & Steph Cannon), are at it again. After making a name for themselves with unique and original crowdfunding campaigns, their upcoming offering raises the bar even further. It will center primarily around their steampunk time-travel series, HEIRS OF ISILDUR and also include material for the medieval fantasy series TALES FROM NOCTURNIA. It will contain the following:
"HEIRS OF ISILDUR vs TALES FROM NOCTURNIA"
(Multi Colored Collectible Vinyl + CD + MP3)
Where steampunk, comics, and metal collide is taken to a whole new level this time around! The debut album (HEIRS OF ISILDUR - The Crossroads Conundrum) featured songs tied exclusively to the steampunk series. This time out the recording features 5 tracks centered around HEIRS OF ISILDUR and 5 tracks focused on TALES FROM NOCTURNIA. The cover image by Brazilian artist RENAN SHODY is a nod to the MARVEL vs CAPCOM video games.
The album will be available on CD, as digital MP3, and for their first time ever, limited edition multi-colored vinyl! There will be two vinyl variants: 'Portal' and 'Dragon's Lair'.
Musicians making guest appearances will be announced up to and throughout the campaign, and the first advance single will drop shortly!
THE SPECIAL EDITION COMIC:
HEIRS OF ISILDUR - 'Nightmare Scenario'
This 24 page special edition comic will feature all the lyrics to the album (including how they relate back to their respective stories), as well as the much anticipated next chapter in the HEIRS OF ISILDUR saga, entitled NIGHTMARE SCENARIO.
"Fans have been asking for more HEIRS OF ISILDUR for quite some time," Said Steph. "By breaking this chapter out (of the upcoming sequel story 'The Perilous Prospects') we can address many unanswered questions in a satisfying way, while at the same time keeping that same 'I need to know what happens next!' vibe."
Art for the comic will be provided by JC Fabul with colors by Bryan Arfel Magnaye, with the main cover by Renan Shody. Additional variant covers and versions will be announced soon.
It wouldn't be a #TeamInsym campaign without crazy extras. It ALSO wouldn't be one of our campaigns without the wild men at #GBLeatherworks being involved.
We've partnered with them to come up with some awesome branded items. We'll get further in depth into just what they are leading up to the launch. Just know this - there will be an aspect that is exclusive to the KICKSTARTER campaign. You don't get it then, you'll never be able to get it!
A TRIBUTE TO COREY STEGER:
During the production of this campaign, one of the musicians associated (Original UNDEROATH guitarist COREY STEGER) tragically passed away. The album will contain the last vocal and guitar tracks he ever recorded.
"We are thankful to be able to showcase the last recordings of Corey's life," said Matt. "He was there to witness and participate in the beginnings of Heirs, so it's a fitting honor that we'll be able to bring to you the last tracks he ever recorded (just 11 days prior to his passing)."
"His imprint will be all over this project," continued Matt. "While his passing is still fresh on our minds, and we aren't entirely finalized on the details, we do intend on doing something more in remembrance of him and for the benefit of his wife and young children."
*** The KICKSTARTER campaign will run from April 16th through May 16th. ***
