Cyberia 5: Blade


Not unlike its numerical forerunner, “Cyberia 5” was produced in an individually-numbered and strictly limited edition of twenty discs — signifying the end of an established fan base in a brave new world and heralding the beginning of a new challenge in an old world that has lost its own cultural identity by trailing behind the Jones’s — despite some of the broadest information superhighways where charred cadavers lay stranded in the emergency lane.

Blurb: “Yeah! ‘Cyberia 5′ brings with it a new concept, a somewhat radical departure from its predecessors by way of the inclusion of snippets from a certain movie… a theme is born! Although this is a fully-functional prototype of a future concept, we have endeavoured to correlate the added movie snippets with the current selection of music. Blatant copyright infringement this may be, but hell… I should be paid for promoting both the songs and the snippets! Shit, I ain’t gettin’ rich from this…
Gratitude is extended to the usual unnamed DJ for providing the music, and to the missus for painstakingly and perfectly recording the Blade soundtrack while I was out playing DJ elsewhere! Sorry, Babes…
Also thanks to you for your continuous support in the Cyberia concept.”
