Exodus Team Up With Incendium For “Tales Of The Damned” Comic Books & Action Figure

Exodus have teamed up with Incendium to create a new “Tales Of The Damned” comic book series and action figure. Pre-orders are available HERE with the first issue set to ship on Halloween (October 31).

Here’s an official press release:

“LOS ANGELES, CA –In the bone-chilling first issue of Tales Of The Damned, a teenage girl goes missing after becoming obsessed with “The Wavelength,” a mysterious signal coming from an elusive radio station. Her protective older sister’s search leads to an abandoned town, where she not only unravels the mystery of her sister’s disappearance but also of the cursed music behind it…The Tempo of the Damned.

Published under Incendium’s music-focused OPUS imprint, the first issue riffs on the title track of 2004’s Tempo Of The Damned and is crafted by horror masters, writer Ian Edginton (Aliens, Predator, 2000AD) and artist Luis Guaragna (John Carpenter’s Tales For A Halloween Night). Tales Of The Damned #1 features cover artwork by Ryan Christensen that showcases the “Organist.”

“I’m super excited to see this project come to life. Exodus and comics go hand in hand, and to see the ‘Organist’ come to life in book form and as an action figure? Totally awesome! I’m looking forward to reading Tales Of The Damned!” said Exodus guitarist and bandleader Gary Holt.

“Exodus’ Tales Of The Damned is our bloody tribute to the Bay Area legends. We’re all about Myths, Monsters, and Metal here at Incendium, so this unholy alliance has been a blast!” added Llexi Leon, CEO Incendium.

The debut of the comic book series coincides with the release of Exodus’ new album Persona Non Grata, which the legendary thrash metal band recorded themselves from home-built studios with the help of Andy Sneap on mixing and mastering and with Steve Lagudi at the helm of engineering. Their groundbreaking eleventh studio album, Persona Non Grata, will be released by Nuclear Blast Records.

Aborted Offer Look At Their Limited Edition “ManiaCult” Action Figure

Aborted have shared a photo of a limited edition action figure that will be included with select pre-order bundles for their new album “ManiaCult“ (out September 10). The band said the following about that:

“Meet your ManiaCult leader. Wayland Thurston may have control over you (and demand human sacrifices), but you can take back a bit of power by holding a small version of him in your hands. Hell, you could crush him in action figure form, but we wouldn’t recommend it because these are LIMITED. Only 100 of the “dark” version will be for sale online, and the normal one isn’t getting mass-produced, either. Who’s grabbing one when pre-orders go live? Join our mailing list to get updates on when it goes on sale, so you don’t miss out!”

Disturbed Team Up With Incendium And Heavy Metal Entertainment For New Comic Book Series

Disturbed have teamed up with Incendium and Heavy Metal Entertainment to create a new comic book series based on their mascot “The Guy.” The five-part series will be called “Dark Messiah” and its first issue will be released in July.

More details were shared in a press release:

“Disturbed, Incendium, and Heavy Metal Entertainment announce the launch of Dark Messiah, a five-part comic book series. Published under Heavy Metal Entertainment and Incendium’s music-focused OPUS imprint, the story was conceptualized by Incendium CEO Llexi Leon and Tim Seeley (Nightwing, Hack/Slash) and written by Seeley, with illustrations by Ángel Hernández (Arrow, Star Trek), and cover artwork by Ryan Christensen.

Dark Messiah takes place in the not so distant future, as firefighter Griffin DeSanto finds himself a man out of time, stumbling into a harsh world of poverty, automation, and subjugation. Technology rules and a tech empire built on suffering keeps the population in check through surveillance and mechanized policing. Though lost, Griffin is never alone. He was brought here for a reason, and The Vengeful One is his guide.

The iconic character and beloved mascot “The Guy” has been the faceless “face” of Disturbed for over 20 years. This will be the first dive into The Guy‘s power’s, history and lore, as we see him as The Vengeful One. “The Guy” has been featured in multiple Disturbed music videos, including starring in Todd McFarlane’s Disturbed: Land of Confusion animated music video, and in cover artwork for the band.

The Guy’s origin was in album artwork for Disturbed’s 2000’s The Sickness, shown as a creepy smile with big teeth. After that, his first full-blown appearance was in the album artwork for Ten Thousand Fists, where he was shown as a character with the same creepy, smiling face, cloaked by a hood, with an outfit made up of torn cloak and multiple chains, pumping his fist into the sky.

“Ever since ‘The Guy’ made his debut 20 years ago his evolution and transformation has only grown. We are excited to take ‘The Guy’ to the next level and bring his story to the forefront via both the comic book series and action figures. We can’t wait to share this next chapter with all of you,” the band Disturbed said in a statement about their Disturbed: Dark Messiah series.

Writer Tim Seeley, who is also the editor-in-chief of Heavy Metal Magazine, added: “the guys in Disturbed have a lot of the same influences I do…horror movies, 90s superhero comics, punk music, and an interest in humanity and the fight against oppression. So, we’ve teamed up to give a story to ‘The Guy’, and it’s going to be a savage horror epic about heroism, hope and a whole lot of teeth and chains.”

“Disturbed’s powerhouse of a mascot was destined for comics and we’re thrilled to be developing the dystopian world of their immortal anti-hero, exploring the roots of his power, and digging into the rich history that’s been teased to date through the bands iconic album artwork and music videos. With flames and chains in abundance, ‘The Guy’ action figure was also a must have, so we’re realizing that out of the gate alongside issue one!” said Llexi Leon, CEO Incendium.

Dark Messiah begins as a 5-issue comic series; the first print edition of each issue will be released as a prestige-format limited edition collectible comic book, featuring cardstock covers, specialty foil treatments, glossy pages, and individual numbering https://incendium.online/collections/disturbed. The first issue is available to order now and ships in July 2021.

Disturbed’s Dark Messiah will extend beyond the printed page into toys, apparel, and collectibles, including an action figure of “The Guy”.

The Vengeful One, The Dark Messiah, The Guy! A cosmic demon born of ancient magic, his spirit was bound to our world and buried deep beneath the sands, awaiting a suitable host with a righteous cause. Soon his vengeance will be unleashed, swift retribution is coming for the corrupt and powerful that plague our society.

This made-to-order deluxe 7” highly articulated figure features Papa Emeritus I from the Opus Eponymous album era. The figure is lavishly detailed and painted and features an epic assortment of interchangeable accessories:
