The soundtrack to "Miami Vice meets Heavy Metal" is how the three Finns of Nightsatan describe the music to their 80s post-apocalyptic science fiction. In the film itself, Italo-Western and Mad Max go together. The music itself booms like a mixture of 80s-Vangelis and -Tangerine-Dream, combined with the more pop-oriented soundscapes of Jan Hammer to just "Miami Vice". Fanfare-like synthesizers echo through rooms that are used by drum computers. From time to time there are also voices from the film to be heard. Some reminds of "Blade Runner", "Thief" or the scores of John Carpenter to his movies "Assault - Anschlag bei Nacht" or "Die Klapperschlange". Without a doubt it's all very atmospheric, although sometimes there's a bit of depth missing. The 24-minute film is supplied on DVD: a trashy B-Movie and S&M pleasure of the extra bloodiest kind, also suitable for Kiss, Lordi or Iron Maiden fans. The crew includes women buried up to their heads in sand as well as torturers masked with skulls and similar to "Judge Dredd". Definitely a matter of taste.
