RIFF LODGE is a full service animation house, specializing in colorful, neo-psychedelic productions with a decidedly 2-dimensional illustrative look and feel. Fueled and inspired by a love for riff-heavy, high-octane music (hence the name), these energetic adult-oriented films leap from the screen and harken back to Heavy Metal Magazine, Conan comics, and Ralph Bakshi and René Laloux productions.
Take a cosmic chopper ride across the battle-wrought landscapes of time and space. Then find yourself at the Riff Lodge.

We are pleased to announce that, in a very short time, we have realized our intention to expand creatively far beyond the possibilities of the first film. In an effort to stay one step ahead of the awesome tale of Halvar the Brave, we have decided to change the name of the first film to The Planet Of DOOM.
Visit the brand new website www.ThePlanetOfDOOM.com to watch the full teaser trailer and view never-before-seen artwork created by our roster of artists for the forthcoming story about Halvar the Brave.
The Planet OF DOOM: Seeking vengeance aboard a witch-born chopper, Halvar must journey across a psychedelic landscape on a quest to defeat the deadly beast Mördvél.
The band MESSA hails from Italy, and are ranked NUMBER 2 on the July 2016 infamous DOOM CHART! JK from Paranoid Hitsophrenic describes them as “Picture Clint Eastwood as the Man With No Name pitted against John Carpenter’s The THING… Spaghetti western doom…!”
Messa is 4-piece band born in 2014. Obscure, evoking doomy tracks with deliciously haunting female vocals, influenced by Pentagram, Bellwitch, Windhand,Jex Thoth, Sabbath Assembly, Bathory, La piramide di sangue. They deliver a heavy sound, occult-reminding, very experimental, also with ambient episodes, that will drive you through a scarlet velvet trip.
