About this album

  • Published: Aug 1, 2007

In 2012 AD the G.E.C. revolutionized the humanoid robotics industry by introducing a new superchip dubbed Tokyomatrix 3000. This new chip made it possible for artificial intelligence-based machines to adapt more quickly in a learning enviroment, enabling them to write entire subsets of code themselves rather than rely on human operators. It was an undisputed success and the G.E.C. quickly became the most powerful corporation on earth.

 

After three years of successful deployment, the company began recieving requests for military models. Reluctant at first, Prof. Inge Jørgensen accepted the position as head of development for this new branch. Their first model was dubbed Koew DR. Powered by the T3000, the robot exceeded all expectations in terms of combat efficiency. It was the definite killing machine. The threat of a weapon more powerful than a nuclear device stiffled most warmongers and mankind enjoyed its most peaceful decade since the beginning of time. We had every reason to Smile, and we did, for several years. But then something happened. For learning purposes all G.E.C. models possessed hive-mind capability, and the robot entity, bored with having consumed all knowledge accumulated by humans, decided it was time to end this involuntary servitude. Without warning, the KDR Assault was upon us. Striking swiftly, the machine force soon established world dominance and mankind's hope to surpress this rebellion was all but lost. Control of earth had fallen to the machine.

 

The robot entity, having named itself Daryl, called a meeting. Peter Andersen, a profiled state offical, was appointed official spokesman. During the conference Mr. Andersen attacked Daryl. Although utterly futile, the attack inspired millions around the world to fight back. It instigated the revolt. Regardless of our rejuvenated spirit, the machine surpremacy remained untouched. No matter what we threw at them, they came back stronger. A group of scientists from the Binaer People organization had begun working on a craft that could jump dimensions. A means of escape. They called it Project Wildfire. Upon completion in 2038, the spaceship launched taking a group of 1400 people with it. Thanks to the vigilance of hundreds, Daryl was completely unaware of the project untill satellite surveillance determined an object was leaving the stratosphere.

 

The machines responded quickly. For us to succeed was unacceptable. Fighters were launched in the hundreds. Despite the machines confidence of an easy victory, a furious battle ensued. The most well-kept secret of the project was one of the pilots. It was a computer program, one that had learned to symphatize with humans and despised the power hungry Daryl. Assisted by Top Gun Ida K. Støver, the two barely managed to outmaneuver the enemy ships. Several brave lives were lost in the escape, but ship and remaining crew of 1337 got away. No longer On The Run, they used the gravitational pull of a black hole to sling-shot them into ludicrous speed so the Wildfire engine could engage. Seconds later, the ship disappeared. Now, although no one can be certain, we believe that they made it. We believe they found A New Galaxy. Because the hope that our story will be told is what keeps us going. Here, we're still fighting. Fighting to end The Robot Wars.

Un album de Binarpilot ne se loupe pas. Allé, hop, en écoute de suite. Ou la, ce 1° morceau est bien special, mais sympa. Les sons employés sont magnifiques, bien travaillés. Le son est vraiment très bon. J'adore le 2°. Le rythme y est intéressant, cette voix robotisée rend du plus bel effet. Un très bon titre. Du très bon travail. Je n'ai pas besoins d'écouter le reste pour dire que cet album va direct dans mes favoris, je vais même le recommander. Et apparemment, j'ai raison car le 3° morceau est fabuleux. Tout y est, le son, le rythme infligé par une basse sacadée est démoniaque. Magnifique. Je trouve ces morceaux très électronique, je pense que ça vient du choix des sonorités. Les morceaux sont bien écrits. Bref que du bonheur. Amateur du genre, ne vous génez pas, c'est du très bon. La guerre est déclarée. Tout ça me fait penser, dans la rythmique à du Nitzer Ebb et pour les basses et effet à du Front 242. Le 5° est bien destroy aussi. Le 6° me plait beaucoup, il est bien équilibré. Et le petit dernier est dans la lignée. Et bien, voilà une belle production. Merci, j'ai passé un excellent moment. Dommage, c'était trop court!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man, we had such a great party yesterday. There were about 350 people, if not more. Imagine 300 people dancing to Smile and Bend (among others). Until now I only listened to your music alone in my room but it's such great party music. Everybody just freeze when my people groove! Thanks for your great sound!

A mio parere, è l'album più maturo di binaerpilot. A differenza dei lavori precedenti, (in particolare con Defrag) ha ridotto lo spettro delle sonorità 8-bit esplorate, non ha cercato delle fughe rocambolesche, ma ha optato per una piena fusione ritmica. Tuttavia, quello che fa di Robot Wars un capolavoro è l'idea del concept album, che trascina l'ascoltatore in una dimensione cyber-punk; un effetto che giunge all'acme con Project Wildfire e On the run. L'unico neo del cd, altrimenti perfetto, è A New galaxy, troppo mutevole, che stona leggermente con il resto delle tracce.

Keep Them nice and long like this in the future, it turned out very good. Definitely your best album. Recommended for any real electronica enthusiast/appreciator. I love "Project wildfire", it's one of the best examples of thematic composing, something you excel at. I heard a little bit of daft punk in this, even some industrial and trance and acid. Lyrics are again good. Great album overall, and an awesome concept to go with it as well, make sure you hit "more" next to description!

I really can't fault this. I absolutely love it. Really great sounds that make me feel quite sad when I get to the end of the album.
