a couple of good effects, but most graphics seem a bit "dusty".

This is a classic; the music, the wild tempo, the colours. This is like a "Best of Polish" compilation in one demo. And you can't help loving a demo that's coded by a guy who calls himself Butt-Man.

LOL! That was a good one, puterman! :D
But this demo is really amazing, I wish I had three thumbs.

insane music, insane amount of effects, insane fantasy pictures. this is the definitive polish trackmo, that will probably never be beaten

too bad the musick didn't really go with the demo in all parts, but the overall production is superb.

Great trackmo, music and gfx, although I like only few of the effects..

Rock solid code, mostly good gfx and a fast paced tune is not really a guarantee for a superb demo, it seems. Looks way too random/unsteady too me.

Unk! Yep, WoW!

By far Samar's best demo - perfect graphics in huge amounts, a soundtrack by DAF that is guaranteed to hypnotize you and nearly all screens are perfectly synced to the music. This is unbelievable - if for some strange reason you're only allowed to download three demos from this site, I'd absolutely include this one!

Lazy people did not add this classic to the right party/year.

Not really my style I think. Music rules though.

I hesitate to thumb it up... (or down)...
First, I see a big inspiration taken from the Amiga demoscene. Especially from the famous "Technological Death" by Mad Elks.
Opium has an outstating amount of crazy (positively speaking) routines perfectly synchronised with the music. Am-azing. Hehehe, It reminds me some japanese Arcade games - one have no time to have a small rest ;).
But the graphics. Well... Valsary, Scatee, Nylu are just perfect. Especially some logos and clip parts. Most of them are very good, but those pixeled by Isildur (nothing personal to you, if you are reading this) are just disgusting. Just bad - simply. Too much black/death metal in to the author's ears, for my taste. Ok, I also like(d) some metal back than, even had an original of "Daemoonseth - Act II" by Christ Agony (or other albums by them or Moon (or other grous)) but the logos and, ehem, "monsters" are just ugly and bad.

For me the demo is great technically and musically speaking. Some pics are also out of common. But well...
