Against the backdrop of late-stage Satanic Panic, a coven of the almighty riff is forged in homage to the progenitors of heavy metal. Armed with their first set of wheels and a rag-tag backline of second-hand gear, the ride-or-die, denim and leather clad Hell Patrol is ready to hit the road to hone their chops.
But no one ever said rock 'n roll was easy.
Getting detention because your principal thinks you’re in league with the devil can be a drag, but as this tight group of metal misfits is about to discover...there are worse things than high school.
With the help of a mysterious guidance counselor, the members of Hell Patrol navigate otherworldly obstacles and small-town life as they embark on their quest towards the big stage. But before they can pursue their dreams on the road to glory, they’ll have to pay their toll on the highway to hell.
Illythia: the solution to a world in turmoil, the last hope for plague-ravaged refugees, and the chance at immortality for a fortunate few. Despite the many expectations placed upon this technological marvel, contingency would bear the architect of its final purpose.
For thousands of years, the vessel’s inhabitants have endured the consequences of their forbear’s forgotten journey against the backdrop of the void.
As the history of Illythia’s voyage is revealed, a new generation discovers that their fate has been shaped irrevocably by the decisions of their ancestors, and that the passage to a new world is not without its trials and tribulations.
Now it is their time. Will they fulfill the vision of the past, or succumb to its misdeeds?
