The machines rose from the ashes of the nuclear fire. Their war to exterminate mankind had raged for decades, but the final battle would not be fought in the future. It would be fought here, in our present. Tonight . . .
Flashback 2029 was created as a retro post-apocalyptic homage to the sci-fi universe of Terminator, led by two artists behind the gears: Franco Tempesta (Composer / Musical Producer) and Aldo Requena (Graphic Designer / Producer). The first signs of life resulted in two Singles: "Judgement Day" and "T-800 Series" which would anticipate the dark dystopian sound and grim atmosphere which was the first release. "T-800 Series" also included the first artwork by Aldo Requena, who conceived the idea of designing a superb Terminator T-800 in a comic book style.
A peculiarity of the project is the use of real guitars in many of the tracks, as well as the inclusion of audio clips from films, in order to achieve the desired cinematic atmosphere.
Finally the first EP titled "The Dark Years" was independently released on October 24, 2015 through Bandcamp and is now available in streaming services like Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Deezer and more.
The title "The Dark Years" mentions the ruins of a post-nuclear future, narrated by Sergeant Kyle Reese in Terminator 1 and is a conceptual work based on the same film.
Flashback 2029 represents an artistic journey without limits whose slogan is: "The future is not set"; but in constant development, to explore the creative abilities beyond the bond of fate, but in the vast universe of imagination.
