Vocabulary of the Mysteries

Hephaestus, a young god, is cast from Mount Olympus after losing a dance battle to his father Zeus - the king of the universe. Before his exile, Hephaestus managed to steal a record from the king - a mysterious vinyl with powers unheard-of. Vowing never to return to the heavens, Hephaestus constructs the beautiful Ladybot - our bad-ass automaton heroine. When he gives the record to his magical iron bride, they build a home to rival Olympus in the broken slums of Earth. But to defy Zeus is to feel his wrath... A post-modern weave of Hip Hop and Greek Mythology, Vocabulary of the Mysteries is an anthem for all those who want what they know they can't have.
