Terminator has always been a source of inspiration for many Synthwave artists, not only for its incredible retro futuristic atmosphere but also for its dark and epic soundtrack.
Brad Fiedel’s work is very inspiring and has definitely marked a big step in the Retrofuture/Cyberpunk genre.
French artist Lueur Verte did a remake of the “Terminator Theme”, with this work, he makes his own tribute with some re-arrangement of the track.

Skynet’s cyber war representation fits very well with Lueur Verte’s “Terminator Theme”.
The Endoskeleton has always been such a fascinating character, his strength and determination are feared by all.

Arcade High is funding an 80s action short film titled Rage. You can help fund the film by checking out the compilation featuring artists like Perturbator, Carpenter Brut, Protector 101, Tommy etc…
The story follows Kurt Niles, an every day guy living in the neon-lit Halogen City. After being left dead in the streets by a gang called The Dangers, Kurt returns from his asphalt grave and goes on a bloody rampage to save the girl he loves. Inspired by early 90s arcade beat-em ups and action films of the 1980s, Rage sets out to be a wild ride of blood, guts, and neon lights.
