“Snapshots of a Surveillance Manifesto” is an electro/industrial EP by Hungarian cyberpunk novelist & researcher Mariusz Bari (a.k.a. Damage), much influenced by recent events in the fields of surveillance and data privacy.
“Planetdamage emerges you in a dark, turbulent, dystopian future. Driving Tetsuo drums and Blade Runner basses support cold red atmospheres as computerized vocals whisper curses.
This is great stuff – its depth and darkness will seduce you.”
–Zoog von Rock (Angelspit)
