After four years in the animation industry and two years in the doom band Throne, Nicos has finally made a concept that is a platform for both his interests. He has always wanted to combine both his music and animation, but never felt they had crossover appeal until now.
Here’s the story, cribbed straight from their Kickstarter:
Following the lyrics and concept of the song ’Tharsis Sleeps’ we journey with the band on a mission to terraform Mars and make it habitable for human existence.
Tharsis is a volcanic region on Mars that is home to some of the largest volcanoes in the solar system. Terra forming is the theoretical process of deliberately modifying a planets atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to the biosphere of Earth to make if habitable by Earth-like life.
By dropping a nuclear bomb into Mars’ volcano Tholus, Throne aim to erupt all the volcanoes on the red planet thus heating up the atmosphere and rising the icy seas that lie beneath it’s surface. Making Mars habitable and saving the human race from imminent self-destruction on their home planet, Earth.
When things don’t go to plan Throne end up nuking themselves and haunt the red planet as ghosts whilst the planet turns into a psychedelic wonderland.
Sounds like fun huh?
