Probably among the first 5-10 Amiga demos I ever watched (I didn't watch them often up until this point, as my friends didn't have many).
A friend and I had been fiddling with Red Sector Demomaker, and Madness 2 came on a CU Amiga coverdisk. I remember I said "Oh! They must be using a powerful demomaker program! I want that!". (Especially for the effect in the upper right corner of the screenshot). My friend tried to explain that they probably coded it.. :P
My face is red! :-D

Great music from 4-Mat, some very nice effects by Dan, and the graphics does its job. But I don't know why they didn't use a graphician instead. Was Facet still in Vision?

One of my all-time favourites.

Totally set my hair on fire when I first saw it.

What a coincident...I just uploaded the soundtrack of this one to the Sceneman Demoscene Radio! One of my alltime favourites!

Originally the music order was supposed to be rock track, folk track, funk track. (hence the odd endings) Dan's choice was much better though.

Thumbs for the music, the demo itself is an object show.

Dan + 4mat = rulez

1990-1991 era written all over it and can be watched again and again over the years. Instant nostalgia.

another classic, i think nearly everything anarchy and dan/4mat touched turned to gold :)

If i could, i'd give this a 2nd thumb. Wonderful stuff.

You can borrow my thumb. Wonderful demo indeed.

Some nice effects but the tune doesn't fit a bit. It sounds too medieval. Like from the Camelot knights times.

nice code and kickass zik!!

Long overdue thumb for a classic demo I watched many times all those years ago. Cool 4Mat tunes! :)

Love this demo, tune sticks in your head for days though!

One of my favorite Anarchy demo !!

great classic!

Underappreciated at the time, I think. 4-Mat's tunes work well here, and the effects are great. The "Tree" looks fantastic! One of Dan's best!

cool tune
Very convincing two bitplanes 3D objects!

Do not remember it, tbh.

Good gfx as for the coder. Good code as for graphician ;). Many nice effects. Interesting vector-routines.
Good music as for the musician ;). Perhaps to many styles mixed in one, for me.

It lacks something to be more enjoyable, thou. A full screen picture or two? Might be fractal a long rendering time while playing really noisy guitar samples instead of sth more moody (is that the guitar Moby's music influence from AD/QTX demo?).

very 90s amiga demo, but some nice fractals and nice 4mat music
bedtime for democracy ;)
