Aussie deathcore, metalcore hybrid The Gloom In the Corner have issued their third release in "Requiem," the single that completes the first chapter of the saga collectively known as, Ultima Pluvia.
Preceded by the tracks "Violence" and "Warfare" the expansive storyline creates a universe the follows the saga's protagonist, Jay, and his treachery of the government agency he works for. Working under the operative name Echo Six, Jay begins to leak information about the Sect he is working for, allowing a powerful cult known as The Holy Order to assume control over the supernatural community - thus the public as a whole.
The animated epic was completed by Mike Lee-Graham and offers the visual companion that details a concise retelling of the plot from start to finish.
Guitarist for The Gloom In the Corner Matt Stevens detailed why Mike Lee-Graham was the ideal fit for this project. "I approached Mike Lee-Graham because of his amazing work designing animated illustrations for the Our Final Halloween comic. His dark and gritty style fit the tone of our universe perfectly."
Mikey Arthur is the vocalist for the band and author of The Saga of The Glooms. He further details the saga of Ultima Pluvia, "...main protagonist Jay begins leaking information of the Sect, the secret government agency he works for, under the moniker and disguise of Echo Six, slowly deposing them of the power they have over the supernatural community, and allowing the religious and zealous cult known as The Holy Order to rise and assume control, led by Elias DeGraver."
Arthur continues, "Though the Sect are aware of Jay’s treachery to the organization, they are unable to locate him, with the little resources they have left after the damage that has been done from the leaks. DeGraver takes it upon himself to search for the mysterious "Echo Six". The last pieces of Sect information have been leaked, and DeGraver sets out to kill Jay/Echo Six. Jay knows that the Sect aren’t far off from discovering his whereabouts, and that suicide isn’t an option with Sherlock Bones (our co-protagonist), the demonic presence known as a Gloom that resides within him still inhibiting his mind."
The frontman recaps the finale, "The story ends with DeGraver shooting Jay with special bullets that stop his regenerative abilities, thus killing Jay and Sherlock Bones, and the final dismantling of the Sect, now that the last pieces of information have been leaked to the public. The Holy Order takes control of the supernatural community, now that their secrecy has been exposed to the mortal public."
