Thump the Villain
A concept album of industrial/electronic music depicting a sociopathic scientist determined to make a controlled society of utopian slaves. Dr. Thad Villumpren has made a cybernetic suit that transforms his body into spaghetti-like tubes of electrical current, which invade and manifest fantasies in all who encounter him. Most die of starvation, but there is a small resistance of people who can resist the frequencies Thump operates at. Many are mentally challenged or schizophrenic, but reside in a world of anarchy, unpredictability with a rule of machines.
