Plot Summary[]

The Norse Gods are terrorizing Vienna, Austria, famed city of classical music and art, by creating a phenomenon that torments humans and robs them of their will to create music and art.

The 00 Cyborgs head to Austria to stop the gods from destroying a music festival and rescue the daughter of the organizer of the event.



The 00 Cyborgs[]
