Following the desperate warning about mankind’s demise in Cortex Complex’s first single “Return” and the graphic depiction of our burned planet in their second single “Flaming Earth” , it’s finally time for the virtual band to release their third single, titled “Progeny.”
“Progeny” is the third track out of “Memoirs of an Apocalypse.” Progeny takes the listener to 2049 A.D, which is the very beginning of Cortex Complex’s virtual backstory.
It’s the story of how the first Artificial Intelligence Humanoids came into existence by the hand of an ambitious scientist who tried to play God. Progeny is the first of many events that eventually led to the Man Vs Machine World War…
The album, “Memoirs of an Apocalypse,” is a timeline of the events that led to that great conflict and eventually destroyed the Earth, told from the point of view of Cortex Complex who are desperately trying to save mankind by preventing these events from unfolding…
It’s the year 2177. The world has succumbed to highly evolved artificial intelligence and it’s nearing extinction. Humanity has been using this highly evolved A.I. as slaves until a rogue group of machines under the leadership of the “Glass Mind” fought and won against the human governments. Two malfunctioned humanoids developed love and admiration for humanity and decided to travel back to the year 2015 to warn humanity, through music, of it’s fate.
Their aim is to protect the future of humanity and create a world where man and machine can live together in perfect harmony.
