THE Demo from this old and legendary cracking/demo group. Dark, full of message(s) and heavy use of symbolism. (I'm not sure about the release date, so I left it blank... think it was '93)

I really like it! There is no coders wise, but it has a sad feeling or something, cool lyrics, musics, I found it really nice to watch... I like Triad's conceptual demos!

Very nice demo, but I think Refugee is better.

I would give it a thumb for the music, but there's too much crap in the poetry ;P

I got impressed by some of the effects but I think it relies to much on text without showing something else on screen at the same time.

Several nice effects and graphics in here, but the shitloads of text spoil this demo for me.

Surprised I haven't thumbed this yet.

One of my favorite demos ever. Perfect mix of teenage angst, hatred towards the system, clumsy poetry by poets still seeking their voices, mixing narrative and graphical elements in a very fluid freeform fashion while delivering a symphony of pop music in almost incomprehensible forms, yet somehow being absolutely perfect where they are. I've listened to this soundtrack for thousands of times and they never get old.

Before I saw this I thought most of the 90s C64-demos were rather uninspired and carbon copies of each other, but this is the demo that drove me to look deeper and search for other hidden gems.

I wish the team behind this would make a comeback.

A classic one with pretty great atmosphere. Probably really original in '92.
