NEW DIGITAL CHAMPIONS PROJECT ANNOUNCEMENT:


At the intersection of Alternative Hip-Hop and Progressive Rock, where epic scale stories are told through music, pixel art, novels, trading cards, and more, lies Alpha Riff and the tale of the Digital Champions. Accompanied by my A.I. partner, MZ, we are bounty hunters who fight villains across our digital world of Digitalia, even looking to the sky where it is said Prog, our creator, lives. Our story began in the full-length album Digital Champions: Migdal Bavel (provided immediately when you subscribe here) and continued in the epic follow-up of Digital Champions: Mors Aeterna (provided immediately when you subscribe). Now, we face our toughest opponents yet... and it's imperative that you help.


Get caught up on the story thus far with these two videos!




Welcome, recruit, to The Horse Men. My name is Alpha Riff. I'm one of the four Directors overseeing this organization and it's my job to find out if you have what it takes to be part of this grand collective. As a citizen of the Fire Wall Nation, the last few years have been rather hellish: C.O.D.E. demons, titans, armies, death, destruction. No doubt, you've lost someone to one or all of these things, and you want revenge. If that's the case, then The Horse Men are not for you. We don't do this for revenge. We do this because no one else will. We are the first and last line of defense. Knowing that, are you ready?


Alpha Riff and Digital Champions Consortium proudly presents The Horse Men Fan Club, a community collective bringing Digital Champions fans deeper into the stories and sagas circling the Digital Champions Universe. Divided into multiple tiers, fan club members (herein referred to as agents) receive amazing perks such as Horse Men only trading cards; free digital and physical media; media first looks such as music and comics; free content yearly; exclusive music monthly; and much more! Join today and it could even be YOU who shapes the stories of the Digital Champions themselves.

Digital Champions: The Fall of Migdal Bavel Prologue and Chapter 1 Video

Later this year, the novel, Digital Champions: The Fall of Migdal Bavel, will be released, but before then, I would like to create a short “audiobook” video of the Prologue and Chapter 1.
