Finnish dark synth-wave project AJATON has released their brand new song titled “Chrome Serpentis.” The song is a follow-up for their debut single “Neon Choke,” released in 2019.
AJATON describe themselves as a “new wave of electronic music that combines the Finnish melancholy with laser-bulletproof vests.”
The band comments on their new track: “Young space marine Conrad Faraday escapes from the chaos of Berlin and the evil hands of the mighty Selke -corporation. Devastation, fear, and desperation in his heart he throttles his Nebir 274 -ship’s proton engines and sets the course towards the red giant; Antares. The old legend tells a story of Chrome Serpentis; a frozen moon in the constellation of Alfa Scorpii. Our young marine heard the rumours of this mysterious place when he was still a young rebellion. The legend says that a mighty mage with mysterious powers live in that cold and forbidden place. Chrome Serpentis is the final destination to find any hope.”
