ABBA for ever :)
added on the 2000-09-06 22:34:11 by starman starman
Yeah, ABBA goes D&B =)
A really nice demo from the c64 gods...
added on the 2000-09-09 16:34:52 by rez rez
one of the best demos ever.
chillin electrobeats haunt you while beautifull gfx and dazing 3d engine does what its supposed to do: astonish you.

LOVE it! The demo doesn't make sense as a whole, but the music is too damn funny. Surprised the hell out of me the first time =)
added on the 2000-11-01 17:59:03 by Shifter Shifter
incredible prod! the abba samples rock, and the effects too :)
added on the 2000-11-07 23:14:36 by robotriot robotriot
One of my favourite demos! The music and the gfx creates an ABBA ambient that rooooocks! As allways the code is impressive ;)
added on the 2000-11-19 01:28:57 by epsilum epsilum
The music culminates when the abba voice samples begin and it sure is good!
great production with a neat theme

i just watched it for the first time and i must say that this demo is greaaat !!!
just a bit too short, but it surely will become one of my favorite ones !

"What ever happened to our love, I wish I undestood. It used to be so nice, it used to be so cool" (ABBA - S.O.S.) When I first watched this demo, I must admit I almost cried. It instantly gave me the feeling that the guys where screaming SOS for the demoscene... If that was their intention, they probably got it right. Combine that with awesome the soundtrack, impressive bump effects and groovy artwork and you've got one of the best productions ever, imho.

What are these Byterapers guys doing? I want to see a new demo from them...

This is my favoritest too! Of course because of the music first. (Btw,. many demos are very favorite of many because of the music first! Heh :)
The fx from Byterapers are always good enough too! Many are the parts which I love to see again and again but I am just bored to describe ;)

One of my favoritest demos!

always the first demo i show in my demoshows, to make the crowd stand up, dance and sing. fame. beauty. love.

byterapers first raped me visualy at the tender age of 14. Now fast forward a few years, and I feel visualy raped again. This demo is nice, stylish, properly synched, and accompained by some hot remix of an ABBA classic. Miss it and you can't call yourself a scener. :)

btw, optimus, why don't you just fuck off and die?

this demo touched me the first time i've seen it, i don't know why, it just did
and it will always have a place at my demo top ten

There's something appealing with this demo, but I don't actually know what. The "remix" of ABBA's SOS absolutely rocks.
rulez added on the 2001-06-06 02:45:11 by fractalgp fractalgp
yolk & legend simply rule, and the rest of the demo rocks too (*especially* because it's not so dead serious). one of my faves, definitely :)

Good joke, but just a joke. Does not deserve this much attention.
sucks added on the 2002-01-26 23:11:34 by Ger Ger
afaik it's not a joke at all, there actually was a group called abba, but i think they all disappeared suddenly and noone knows where, but i'm not sure...
rulez added on the 2002-02-25 16:15:39 by lai lai
erm, don't we all know abba ??
however: no matter when and how often I watch this demo, it catches me again and again. simply everything fits, especially the music. great job.

The gfx is not that good, the code is ok, but the ABBA track is so insane it burns into your brain and stays there forever. :-D

My last memory of this was at Solskogen 02, when this soundtrack tempted me away from the outside bbq in the middle of the night. =)

Although the ABBA stuff feels plain weird to me, the design is very solid and uses every scene to great effect even where it could be thought impossible. The music makes me like ABBA too. I like the 3D scenes as much as anything here. No signs of ugly lack of details as is so common with 3D even nowadays.

An ABBA tribute demo? Well, definitely not weirder than a Tawnee Stone tribute demo.. Typical '90s effects - fairly well executed. The final minute of the music where they throw in the original lyrics is of course good.

Despite having the feeling that the pixels grow bigger every time I watch it - it'll never get old. I can't coun't how often I played this on high volume on demoparties on amps I could get my hands on, just to entertain people - it's one of the prods that makes everyone smile.

Definitely a evergreeen, and I bet I'll enjoy this in ten years from now as well :)
