New Music from BABIRUSA

For this song, we’ve written up a sort of short-story like summary as each song throughout the whole album is conceptually linked…

Awoken in the middle of the night by computer monitors flashing wildly in his room, our main character is introduced. Dazed and confused he makes his way to the computer desk and begins investigating the problem, typing on his keyboard and clicking his mouse in a flurry.

Suddenly the flashing of the screens comes to a halt and the man is now faced with an eerie yet intriguing question; “Escape? Y/N”. Curiously, the man presses the ‘Y’ key and is then asked to enter his name. With every letter he keys into the screen the man’s curiosity grows stronger, as he enters it completely he is now struck with the daunting statement: “You are now #343”.

Anxiety strikes in an instant when the man hears his television turn on in the lounge room. Hurriedly, he exits his bedroom and enters the lounge room only to find that the television has the same statement as his computer. He feels his heart start to race as regret sets in, but before he has time to think about his actions his phone vibrates in his pocket. It’s the middle of the night, no one could have messaged him… He already knows what he’s about to see…

Like a nightmare coming to life before him, he stares at his phone screen and glaring back at him yet again are the words “You are now #343”. In complete panic, within a seemingly endless void of flashing screens, he fears what’s to come next…

From outside of the visual barrage the man notices a tunnel of illumination streaming from his bedroom. Now with somewhat of a direction, caught in the struggle between darkness and strobing lights, he makes his way back to his bedroom. As he enters the room, through the tunnel of light, the man feels his body become weak and his limbs turn numb as he is almost pulled toward his computer. Now sitting back in his chair, he attempts to resist this force taking control of him.

His eyes shutter slowly as all vision decays into darkness. As neon wires extend from the computer, these sentient cyber limbs strike toward his face and embed themselves into his flesh. Now connected to his consciousness, they drain him into the machine…

However in an even shorter summary than that;

Babirusa‘s debut single ‘Desolation System‘ introduces the album’s concept of how humankind is at its own demise at the hand of its technological evolution.”

BIO

In rare cases, the tusks of the Babirusa can grow in a way that penetrates their own skull and pierces their brain, ultimately killing the animal. This is humanity in a metaphorical perspective. Slowly growing until we inevitably kill off our species. We are our own demise at the hand of our technological evolution… Debut single ‘Desolation System’ by Babirusa reached 15,000 views within one month of release. The single was also featured on Rage (ABC Television) in June 2019.

Featuring current/ex-members of:

Tomb Of Doom, The Senate, Crowned In Flesh and I, Valiance
