    Zero Magazine: "Skivan heter Tales From a Future Past och är en mångfacetterad historia, där Anders och hans keytar bjuder på många olika sorters elektronisk musik.
    Den röda tråden är snygga syntljud, smarta melodier och en portion sympatisk humor. Låttitlar som ”It Came from Outer Space”, ”That 80s Feeling” och ”Electrofunkadelic” säger en del om vad det handlar om. "

    Steel City Collective: "Damokles is back with the retrosynthtastic 'Tales from a Future Past'; an epic journey of 80s electro funk, 90s Videogame Soundtracks, Europop, Eurodance & Italo Disco.
    The diversity of the album and the joy with which each track is delivered really is a triumph."

    The Synth Squad: "Un son du jour qui m'installe douillettement dans ma zone de confort musicale. Comme le décrit l'artiste : "Différentes saveurs du son des 80's"
    Un dessert musical pour gourmand nostalgique : Tales from Future Past par le grand Damokles"

Track Name: It Came from Outer Space
For many years
We all were wondering
Are we alone
in the universe?

We started search for intelligence
And hoped a sign would immerge

The time went by
with nothing happening
Our question stood
without reply

But then one day with no warning signs
they appeared in the sky

Just like that we were degraded down to inferior beings
Looking up to see the glowing master race.
For so long we had been wondering if we were alone but
Here's the answer and it came from outer space

The vessels floating like a dream above
Defying all we thought we knew.
Will they prove to be friend or foe
There's not much we can do.

We're trying hard to communicate
Because we have so much to gain
Still they are silently hanging there
So all our questions remain


Just like that we were degraded down to inferior beings
Looking up to see the glowing master race.
For so long we had been wondering if we were alone but
Here's the answer and it came from outer space

Just like that we were degraded down to inferior beings
Looking up to see the glowing master race.
For so long we had been wondering if we were alone but
Here's the answer and it came from outer space

Track Name: That 80s Feeling
There it is!
That 80s feeling
gotta dance to this

Feel that bliss
That 80s feeling
this is what I miss!
Track Name: Master of Circumstance
You cannot do this or do that
because someone said so
There are so many rules
by which you must abide

What if I told you something
that I have realized
Cause it will help you to put all of that aside.

There is a world around you
ready to open up
once you see clearly what is
standing in your way!

There aren't any rules
There's only consequence
Don't listen to fools
who tell you what to do in life

Forget about rules
Just way the consequence
Now these are the tools
to put you in control

What ever you do there will be something that happens for it
The trick is seeing all of it in advance
And once you do you know if you can accept it
You then become a master of circumstance

There is a world around you
ready to open up
once you see clearly what is
standing in your way!

There aren't any rules
There's only consequence
Don't listen to fools
who tell you what to do in life

Forget about rules
Just way the consequence
Now these are the tools
to put you in control

master of circumstance
master of circumstance

You are the one who have been holding back your life
by allowing control from someone else

There aren't any rules
There's only consequence
Don't listen to fools
who tell you what to do in life

Forget about rules
Just way the consequence
Now these are the tools
to put you in control
Track Name: Leaving You This Way
Signing up to serve
was no choice
It was mandatory
But I never though
I would leave you

But the attacks have been severe
And command have desided for us
That we are to go to their home

Leaving you this way
is something I had hoped I'd never have to do
But I cannot stay
I have orders to go away

Boarding on the ship
was so sad
there were thousands of us
Most of us afraid for what was waiting up ahead

Leaving you this way
is something I had hoped I'd never have to do
But I cannot stay
I have orders to go away

Leaving you this way
is something I had hoped I'd never have to do
The one thing I can say
Is I hope that I will return some day

The stars are indifferent to what will happen to us when we get there
And somehow that is comforting as we go to sleep

Leaving you this way
is something I had hoped I'd never have to do
But I cannot stay
I have orders to go away

Leaving you this way
is something I had hoped I'd never have to do
Hoping for a day
when all the bipeds have gone away

They came, in their ships
And attacked our sacred hive
Now we will bring them destruction
when we arrive
