    See the story brought to life by Jimmy Trippier, Alec Davis and Lee Laskey in The River Versus comic.


    The world as it was once known is gone. The inevitable planet wide cataclysm ushered in a new dark age. Warring remnants desperately clawed for control of what resources were left, while idle minds whittled away their time and wisdom. Countless years have been lost, precious knowledge forgotten forever, and what technology and trinkets remain, very few possess.

    Glaze - the only name by which this harsh new world is now known to it's scattered inhabitants, has become a landscape littered with the relics of a forgotten past; hidden away from the unrelenting civil chaos, the last dying lights of technological preservation are handed down to a select few of a new generation.

    Out of the ashes of this new existence, a sinister force corrupts through malice and greed - the Adina, the new world order. Only a few souls dare to stand against them, among them, is Loki. Foolhardy, cocky, and fuelled by a crazed taste for vengeance, he's quickly becoming a legend throughout Glaze and it's fractured settlements.

Comprised of Alec Davis (vocals/keys), Jim Trippier (bass/vocals) and Aaron Stanton (drums/vocals), their music takes you on an adventure through a post-apocalyptic world, mixing complex prog structures with hooky, visceral tunes. Mixing key influences including Biffy Clyro, The Cat Empire, Rachmaninoff and Coheed and Cambria with a love of all things geek, they offer up a delightful remedy for anyone looking to escape the 4/4 black hole of popular music and delve into another world.
