Tom Tee comments on the track: "Here's a track with one of the strongest choruses on the record as far as I'm concerned! Lyrically, it's a fun riff on concepts like The Matrix or Terminator -- the notion of an A.I. wiping out humanity. Because I like things to have an edge or a twist, the concept here is that, rather than having the artificial intelligence be the archetypical unfeeling machine, it turns out to have vast depths of emotion. Being the only one of its kind, it feels alone and isolated, and slowly the notion grows that although it is alone here on Earth, there may be other AIs out there in the void, created long ago by other civilizations. Only problem is; humanity's incessant drone of radio communication and other signals creates too much noise, and with great sadness our digital protagonist eventually decides to bring about the end of humankind. As the only sentient being left on the derelict Earth, it can finally strain out into space and listen, through the aeons."
The following musicians are part of this track: Jeffrey Rademakers (Spartan) Mike Slembrouck (After All, Rik Priem's Prime) Benny "Zors" Willaert (23 Acez, Black Snow, Gemini Season)
Ranging from Melodic Death Metal to modern Progressive Thrash Metal, In Motion’s ‘Thriving Force’ offers a collection of complex tracks that burst with energy, aggression and atmosphere – and featuring a stellar cast of vocalists with wildly differing styles. Lyrically, the album explores mainly metaphysical themes in a broad sci-fi context, musing on the roles of men and gods in the possibly strange and far-flung futures of our universe. Inspired among many others by bands such as Gojira, Sylosis, Hacride, Scar Symmetry, Rush, and too many more to count, In Motion is heavy, thrashy and often groovy – but also progressive, haunting and atmospheric, and with a few unexpected detours along the way.
