I repeat: put your gasmask on.

heh, this is just a weird demo. Dune's music fits so incredibly well the psycho effects. A must-have indeed.

Umm.. Dune?! Guess again..

One of my faves at the time. Music is a little more sane/on-key than Paimen, and some real video in color this time. Design isn't quite as consistent though. Running it on anything faster than a Pentium may produce humorous results.

hehe, damn... sometimes I mix up Groo and Dune.. Sorry.. :)

At first there are some 3d objects rotating, and then, the real fun starts.

i think it's better to finally take those gasmasks of and breathe real air. and maybe scream a bit.

For me probably *the* classic COMA demo. Everything fits!

Outstanding legendary demo from Coma, perfect angry "fuck the system" design, furious Groo´s track...

Roxorz !

Running it on anything faster than a Pentium may produce humorous results.

I can report that it runs perfectly on a ~ 750mhz machine. :)

Anyway, not being a coma demo lover, this sort of 'video mixed with angsty teen punk lyrics' demo style always looked somewhat
absurd to me. Today I think, it works quite well overall, it has its qualities, music's refreshingly different compared to anything else from '96. A piggy then.

Love it, but the bass samples are a little too over-saturated. Other than that, fucking badass. Not sure what that 750mhz guy is lieing about, even on my P2 400mhz a few scenes are too fast. Like the nature scene and some spinning things.

Hah, I remember the grocery store this was filmed in, used to go there myself in those days. Kind of fun for its age and Groo ruled.

missing thumb from me as well. brilliant demo, its provocative message hasn't aged at all.
