The title “TRIADS” has two meanings:
1. A triad is a group of three, and this is album number three
2. Triads can also mean Asian crime syndicates originating from China in the 18th century.
Just like the other albums we are still in the Cyberpunk/Sci-Fi realm – but this time the album has an Asian flavor. The sonic references are Blade Runner (soundtrack), Stranger Things (Soundtrack), John Carpenter and Daft Punk (TRON).
John Bergin has designed the album cover (Stranger Things, DRIVE, Mr. Robot)
Martin is a huge fan of science fiction and cyberpunk – and his main focus is trying to create lots of images in the head of the listener – from drama to suspense to beautiful atmospheres.
