The year is 2013... After years of war, the world is a toxic wasteland, with the last remaining tribes of Earth sealed in an enormous domed city. The population is entertained (and pacified) by weekly gladiatorial contests held in The Arena - an amphitheatre where android slaves are forced to fight to the death. Manufactured and programmed solely for combat, these biomechanical gladiators (called Secutors) possess enhanced strength, reflexes and stamina.
During one Arena contest, a Secutor, named Kerez, malfunctions and makes a dramatic escape into the outside world... Wandering through a post-apocalyptic landscape, Kerez finds herself in the ruins of a city where she is befriended by Gamilia, a defector from the Old World.
Meanwhile a squad of mercenaries are dispatched to hunt down and decommission the errant android... With an awakening sense of consciousness and understanding, will Kerez learn the essence of humanity before she is tracked down and destroyed - and who will survive the explosive showdown between sentient machine and the ruthless human hunters?
This excitingly inventive and propulsive collection of instrumentals sounds exactly like what Vangelis, John Carpenter and The Terminator’s Brad Fiedel might have composed if they’d been locked in a room together back in 1987.
It follows three previously self-released & sold out cassette albums bearing the legendary Morretti name: Alien Terrors, The Satan Complex & Assault Of The Living Dead.
