DEAD MELODIES - New Album Out Soon, Opening Track Available For Streaming

UK based dark ambient act Dead Melodies returns with a brand new sonic work named The Masterplan. A successor to in 2019 released album Primal Destination, and this time serves us a soundtrack to a dystopian future where cybernetic hacking has wiped most of the population, an overgrown world painted with dark drones. Listen to the opening track "The Amaranthine Expansion" in the player below. The Masterplan will hit the stores on 28th April via Cryo Chamber. Artwork and mastering was done by Simon Heath of Atrium Carceri and Sabled Sun fame.

About the album concept Dead Melodies has to reveal: "The rise in blackmarket mods of the amaranthine expansion had exposed more vulnerabilities than The World Council could patch. Originally promised to provide users with next-gen intersensory integration in The Cyberzone, but a bad code in the mod had revealed a port directly into the cerebral cortex, giving full access and control of the mind, thus kicking off a race between the Council's Cyber Security Agency and hacker groups to either patch or exploit the port.
At first just the modded expansions were affected, but once the malicious code infiltrated the mainframe, the hackers gained access to the entire neural network. Full motor-cranial control of 80% of the world's population was theirs. The hand of god was assumed; like puppeteers of the highest order.
And with the human race set to stand-by, white eyed and in a temporal loop of anaesthetic symbiosis; government houses burned, military intelligence was deleted and crypto banks were wiped clean. It was then the unspeakable and irreversible moment came; the genesis flood surged through The Cyberzone, literally switching off the brains of the connected, sparing only the young and the deactivated. Over half the human race, wiped out in a heartbeat. And the almighty towering empire of The World Council, now just a relic left to be reclaimed by the earth.
The hacker's masterplan was complete. A hard reset that ushered in a new dawn for mankind. The few survivors, now fully liberated from the technological reign of The World Council, free to restart anew and rebuild the human race. Enter Earth 2.0." Link
