Starting off with perhaps one of the longest and most symbolic introductions ever, this album finally concludes the journey to Cyberia — a trip which began with a crude sexual seed and has subsequently mutated into a malformation of abysmal darkness and gross monstrosity.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Humanic and orgobionic resynthesis is inevitable and completely inescapable.
We have a biological hunger to join with our machines.
The plastichrome foetus of that shapeless new quicksilver race lies within us; beginning to struggle and flex as recombinant DNA technology and nano-electronic sciences veer towards a catalytic and explosive intersection. Biomechanical shadows and cybernetic specters haunt our prophetic arts and seers, distilling apprehension and exaltation as we feel past biological absolutes dissolving around us and turn towards the luminous realigning geometries of a mighty and merciless future. Cyberia is in our very bones – melting, morphing, recreating and re-contouring us so we might walk safely through the chaotic lands of the future, and that in the psychotic mutating hysteria and super-technological dark ages to come we might truly find our very Humanity.
“Cyberia 9” was the first to include a URL and finished off some special, expensive photo paper left over from the Cyberia 1 and 2 production run.
