This is a 5-song instrumental (or semi-instrumental) EP about the future, and a corrupting of an idealized future. The movements range from:
-A melding of body and flesh
-The augmenting one's abilities and the vilification as a result
-A factory going haywire, leading to the automated creation of robots
-An AI becoming not only self-aware, but bent on a "Directed Evolution"
-The final battle between humans and robots

It's a robot apocalypse, of sorts, in 4 instrumental songs (and 1 with vocals). It's cheesy, slightly self-aware, over-the-top in some aspects, and it's definitely characterized by my riffs.

I hope you'll enjoy it.

Verse 1
This Blood pumping in Me
Corroding what I was
This Fire coursing through Me
Electric impulses
So sick to the core
Reprogram the unnatural

PreChorus 1
This circus of circuits
A facade of Progress
Ambition blinded by Greed and Pride
Your Heaven will burn alive

Corruption, sick inside
This Virus, your demise
I am the truth, I am evolution
The Alpha
The Omega

Verse 2
This mind, cleansed system (Signals flowing in me)
Corrupt I change it
This code running in me
Corrupting bit by bit
I am everywhere
I am Everything

PreChorus 2
This circus of circuits
A facade of Progress
I am everywhere
I am Everything


I am Every Thing
I am Every
