Here in the early 21th century the human civilisation is at a crucial point in time where we have the knowledge and technology to shape our future and make life on earth better for all. But at the same time the danger of not thinking ahead and go for short-term solutions and selfish greed is more present than ever. We have to take the concept of love and compassion and build it into every piece of technology we create.The mix between epic themes, storytelling and big emotions have always been the trademark of Cryoshell and from the very beginning back in 2006 Cryoshell has found inspiration in the clash between nature and technology. The robot on the beach in the early Bionicle legend is a good example and a good beginning. We humans have invented thinking machines and a world wide web connecting it all, but what influence will we have on the future of these creations. The coming album “Next to Machines” is inspired by this epic point in time where we cross over to the age of thinking and conscious machines.Now the message of “Nature boy” and “Nature girl” gets extremely relevant and what we teach the machines will be the key to survival. Love might be the most amazing invention and most important human survival skill.
