This time to the tune of ‘Steambreather’ the metal icons have headed to a meeting held by a mysterious cult, led by someone who probably needs to discover the power of deodorant (or perhaps that’s part of the cult’s appeal, who knows). That’s not the weirdest thing though, as soon people’s skin is being pulled from their bodies like elastic and others are sent to a supernatural realm that might be Hell. If Hell was pastel-coloured anyway. That’s pretty much just the tip of the iceberg for how surreal things get too…
