You wanted the best? You got the best! The hottest band in the world… “The Fall of Camelot”? They may not be selling out arenas, but Ystina (bass; Shining Kinght), Rory Regan (drums; Ragman), and Jason Blood (guitar and vox; Demon) continue to tour clubs around the world. Rumor has it that Morgaine le Fey, the woman who caused Jason Blood to be cursed over a thousand years ago, now hangs her hat somewhere near the Sunset Strip. So you know what that means. Next stop: the Whisky A Go Go! And when The Fall of Camelot’s set ends, the real action begins…
Gone, Gone the form of man! Rise, the Demon – Etrigan!
When heads for banging gather nigh, my beastly licks will shred the sky.
Then midnight strokes and off the stage, I’ll find the object of my rage.
My wrath worse than a Bible flood, I’ll claim revenge for Jason Blood!

“DEAD HEADS”
After failing to slay Morgaine le Fey in Los Angeles, the “Fall of Camelot” heavy-metal band/super-team continues their North American tour in hopes of again finding their ancient enemy. The next stop places them near Slaughter Swamp, though unbeknownst to them Morgaine has ensorcelled their opening act and placed an ancient necromantic incantation into their setlist! When the music ends, the mystical summoning is complete! Enter the avatar of decay - Solomon Grundy! Can Etrigan, Shining Knight, and Ragman send this undead monstrosity back to the afterlife? But Grundy isn’t the only thing the spell calls forth from beyond the realms of death…
There lies a swamp down New Jersey way
where you can summon the dead any time of the day.
Departed scoundrels and killers and ne'er-do-wells,
come face the Demon from the black pits of Hell!
Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday,
Drew my ire on Wednesday, will not see Sunday!

“BREAK. DANCE.”
In the 90s, he was a breakdancer that tore up the pop charts. After fading from the limelight, Vibe is seeking to reinvent himself as a hardcore punk. Little does he know, he’s about to get a less-than-warm welcome when he takes the stage at England’s annual Download Festival in Donington Park. While fans unconvinced by his transformation might metaphorically want to kill him, the vile sorceress Morgaine le Fey has a more literal intent. The unique vibrational energy that would be released upon his death is the last ingredient le Fey needs to open a portal to the past, where she can eliminate her hated enemy Jason Blood before he is ever bound to the Demon, Etrigan! Unfortunately for Morgaine, neither Etrigan nor his band are about to let her plan come to fruition…
Here is a man, breakdancer by trade,
 trying to live down the mistakes that he’s made.
Got booked on a show, the line-up was stacked,
but before he begins, he’s already attacked!
The witch wants to kill him to strike at the Demon,
I’ll burn her to death, now on with the screamin’!

“METAL ON METAL”
Anthony Ivo: prolific engineer; pioneer in the fields of artificial intelligence and metahuman biology; huge metal head. While working on his masterpiece, the special ability-replicating android Amazo, Ivo routinely blasted his favorite albums with the sound cranked to eleven. Thus, when Amazo was finally activated, his subroutines compelled him to attend the concerts of his favorite bands and absorb the musicians’ talents to become the ultimate metal machine. But when he attended the Fall of Camelot’s show in Silicon Valley, he absorbed much more than Jason Blood’s ability to shred on guitar. Can the Demon Etrigan, Shining Knight, and Ragman stop the android who copied all of their powers before he uses them to conquer Northern California?
Who's that metal man and what’s drawn his ire?
He killed that roadie with a blast of hellfire!
Methinks the problem’s plain to see,
A thief born of base technology!
Learned my secrets from craven osmosis,
Burn now in my fiery halitosis!

“INFERNET”
What is labeled as a leaked track from the Fall of Camelot’s new album has appeared on various illicit piracy sites around the internet. While torrent leeches may know they’re harming the industry, they don’t know they’re harming their eternal souls! It seems “Fall_of_Camelot_-_Praise_Morgaine.crsE” isn’t actually the band’s next single, but it does require an audio codec update that opens a portal from your speakers directly to Hell! With demons spilling out of every PC that has a high speed connection and a p2p program installed, it’s up to Etrigan, Ragman, Shining Knight, and Vibe to shut down the original seeder before Earth is swallowed by the Inferno! But can they get through Morgaine le Fey’s very literal firewall?
Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Internet pirates need help from me!
Speakers aglow with a sulfury smell,
have unleashed a host from the black pits of Hell!
These lesser demons all wilt at my glare,
my hellfirewall slaughters their malware!

“BARDS OF PREY”
Ensorcelled by the insidious alliance of Morgaine Le Fey and Solomon Grundy, the band finds itself thrown back through time to 5th century Britanniae! Acting as wild and ill-mannered travelling bards, Jason Blood, the Shining Knight, Ragman, and Vibe are forced to go unplugged when they inadvertently catch the ear of the great wizard Merlin and get themselves booked to play the biggest show in history: King Arthur’s royal inauguration! Jason realizes this must be the event that Morgaine and Grundy planned to interfere with, so if he can save the once and future king while simultaneously rocking the walls of Camelot with poetic lyrics and a shredding lute solo… then maybe he can convince Merlin to lift the curse that has bound him to Etrigan for so many millennia! But that might be impossible, because Solomon Grundy is descending upon the ceremony – and he’s got an army of Saxons at his back!
More’n a thousand years into the past,
my destiny can change at last!
To slay the foes and save the king,
while rhyming verse too I must sing!
When the Demon’s tested, he always passes,
now let’s get medieval on all their asses!

“THE LEAK”
For years, people have seen the face of Jesus in their toast or Mother Teresa in their cinnamon buns, but now they’re seeing those touched by divinity in an entirely different way… nude and semi-nude! Someone has hacked the cloud of heaven, perverting its champions and creating immodest copies that are wreaking havoc all over the earthly realm! As Shining Night and Ragman struggle to defeat their unclothed doppelgängers, Etrigan attempts to track down and eliminate Morgaine Le Fey’s cloud-based hacker before Hell’s data is breached and he himself is exposed by a Demon double! But… is it already too late?
A nudist clone… how sick, perverse.
A mystic hacker whom now I curse.
Without respect for privacy,
You’ve made killing you my fantasy!
Soon torn apart by claw and fang,
The world musn’t see the Demon’s wang!

“BATTLE OF THE BANDS”
As Jason Blood's band “The Fall of Camelot” continues its world tour, the super-group's enemies have learned from past mistakes and have decided to combat the Demon at his own game: heavy metal! Solomon Grundy has embraced the blackest of black metal, lending his driving double kick drum blast beats to Swedish satanic rockers “Sadistic League United.” Meanwhile, Amazo has absorbed the prowess of the world's most shredding guitar heroes and has aligned himself with hair metal throwbacks “Sëx Lüthor.” The three bands are all scheduled to perform at the biggest show of the year, the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany. Will they murder each other in front of 80,000 rockers? Or will these entities have to become unlikely allies against a far greater threat?
Guest rhymes by Amazo of Sëx Lüthor:
I'm a shining, polished sex machine made of steel.
My guitar licks are programmed to make all the groupies squeal.
My pants are coded for performance and I've got circuit boards for abs,
I've got anti-virus software that makes me immune to crabs!
I want vengeance on the demon but first and foremost I'm a stud,
what kind of dastardly big bad would force me to team with Jason Blood?

“THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING” Part Two “ANARCHY IN THE U.K.”

Well, Ystina the Shining Knight just accidentally awoke him from his resting place beneath Glastonbury Tor... and he's super pissed! With the Shining Knight as the first member of his soon-to-be reunited Round Table, Arthur sets his sites on reclaiming Camelot and the lands surrounding it – whether the U.K. has a problem with that or not! And the once and future king has the power to make it happen: with Excalibur returned to his possession, the sword's enchantment has redoubled its lethality – enabling it to cut an atom, creating a nuclear explosion! Can Etrigan the Demon stop King Arthur, or will Jason Blood have a chance to finally redeem himself for his failure during the fall of the original Camelot... by joining the Round Table?!
