New album “Fall of the Titans” background
In the year 2060, the world is on the brink of a major technological advancement. Discovery of ancient technology in the outer colonies of Mars, spark a new golden age of space exploration. In the same time, Earth is falling apart. After the comet Apophis crashed into earth in the 2030’s, humanity was forced to flee into the few Megacities around the world. Neo Helsinki, Moscowopolis, New Oslo, and a few others became the new home for hundreds of millions of people. The megacity projects were started by a few aware countries in the 2020’s. Scientists predicted the arrival of Apophis and the major changes its arrival would bring to our world. Too few listened. Now after 30 years of this event, the world is a wasteland outside the domes of the megacities. Megacity project also sparked a new age of robotics. Robot Core units were created to uphold law and order in the megacities. The units were ranging from towering titans, to smaller human sized robots that could be autonomous or driver operated. This is the story of the 2060’s historical events, that sparked the first colony wars between Hellraiser Militia, and Neo Helsinki Robot Core. A battle that would shape our past and future.
