In 2004, the Chronicles of Riddick aired with a little bit of animosity from the fans. From there we thought the franchise had fallen off with no hopes of returning. Today a new trailer for the second installment for what is slated to be a trilogy appeared. Starring Vin Diesel this film will be the third in the series following Pitch Black’s events in 2000.

Although these bands are very similar The Vein offers something much darker and heavier. Their style is very relatable to classic 80′s and 90′s death metal. This is a double EP feature being released which is a unique and rare find.
