about

2040 – the human race has almost been extinguished from Earth. Both men and post-human cyborgs have entered the infernal struggle for predominance, considering total defeat as the only, ultimate outcome. Never have humans tried to unravel the parameters of their own existence on a level as profound as this. Friendship, love, and care are the humane shells used against the cold-bloodedness of the machine. The Second Age will either be a new beginning – or a fall-back into darkness.

about

The Spur Kerken, Germany

THEISPUR. - impressive, progressive, technically demanding music with electrifying and passionate performance. The band establishes ties between classic, melodic progressive rock biased towards heavy metal rudiments and modern, song-oriented, technically complex approaches. Melodic sections and almost frantic instrumental outbreaks don't interfere with the pure structures and diverse harmonies. ... more

Track Name: The Second Age
2040 - desperation, humans gone, another age
Microcosmic implantations caused a universal rage.
Bolts, bones, flesh and wire, CPU and ionic brain,
Metal hands of carbon skin, humanity betrayed.

Hypostatic armageddon, co-existent, genderless,
Tribute to a grand alliance conditioned to prevail.
Total blindness, aboulomania, no will and want, inequity.
Victor's monsters came into being, synthetic after all.

Dystopia
Where have we gone, what happened to us?
It’s no longer me, I'm saluting to my new self.

Artificial derivation, organic creature, lifeless breed,
Unconsenting deadly matter, breathless, homeless, evil seed.
Temporarily disillusioned and out of control
We're shaking hands with any maniac we don't know.

Dystopia
Where have we gone, what happened to us?
It’s no longer me, I'm saluting to my new self.
Track Name: Until The End
In my head a thousand words
Incapable of thinking Yes or No
So in disguise, I'd rather leave that place
And seek to find the truth behind my face

In my hands a thousand deeds
Incapable of building up the core
I'm paralyzed, stagnant and congealed
I trust in you, no matter what you do

Will you relieve me of my pain – it's not the same
Through darkest hours we have gone – yet on the run
Whatever there will be – I promise you I'll stay
I'll fight for you and cry for you my friend
Until the End

An honest friend, upright and loyal and loving
Who stands up right against the tide and guides your way
Receiving you, fearless and caring and faithful
I'm afraid, it's not too late
And it keeps me sane

Will you relieve me of my pain – it's not the same
Through darkest hours we have gone – yet on the run
Whatever there will be – I promise you I'll stay
I'll fight for you and cry for you my friend
Until the End
Track Name: The Great War
These goddam bullets chasing me
Can't stand the pressure, stay the same
Hunter and prey in deadly union
Revised invention of a race

Love your brother before you kill him
Lose your mind before you think
Crawling through a barren desert
Seeking balance on the brink

7000 miles away from home
They drill me and kill me, then shoot and reboot me
Oh Lord, I'm so insane
Let me go home again

Shells and tanks, all smoke and fire
Laser guns and hybrid drones
Plasma-powered semi-humans
Armies of ten thousand clones

Biohazard toxic twisters
Knocking on my brother's door
Panic, envy, and avarice
Led to this ungrateful war

Fight - another gruesome war
Lie - another stupid lie
Cry - on any wounded man
Die - another useless death in vain

7000 miles away from home
They drill me and kill me, then shoot and reboot me
Oh Lord, I'm so insane
Let me go home again

Rage - spreading like fire in the hearts of this age
Wage - war in the minds of the honest and brave
Track Name: Transcendence
I only believe in what I see and what I hear
Don't question the unjudgable or wonder why I'm here
Don't think of the unthinkable and speak no lie to you
No otherworldly flavor will poison what I do

My sense of yearning has helped me to believe
In what I can't see in this strange world
Transcendence

Transcend into another world, cross the borderline
Let the spirits come to you, I promise you'll be fine
My doubts and fears and anger I'll leave behind these walls
I'll give way to the feeling of feeling not at all

Subtlety - What's behind the cold eyes?
Concinnity - Will we ever learn the truth?
Nescience - Is it mere existence?
Knowledge - Lead us to wisdom

My sense of yearning has helped me to believe
In what I can't see in this strange world
Transcendence
Track Name: Battlefield Redeemer
Awaken stranger, what have you done?
These war-torn memories are sketching your skin.

All peace and loving relieving you
Return to life now – that's what you do.

When she leaned over him she granted him absolution
She took away the burden and the guilt that lay heavy on his shoulders
And washed clean his face scared by the dirt of that gruesome war
That had left so many in condemnation.

She's living up to living
And people know her name
Forgives the unforgiven
All sin and doubt and blame

She'd bestow great care on them
Liberate them from troubled minds
Reaching down to the bottom of their hearts
Show them where the truth remained
Take them by the hand
Purify their disentangled souls

She's living up to living
And people know her name
Forgives the unforgiven
All sin and doubt and blame
Track Name: Monstrocity
Eleonore, girl from L.A.
Cherubic hair, sashaying motion
Orphan child, abandoned and abused
Candid eyes and trembling hands
A truly hopeless situation
An inconclusive tragedy
Adolescent mind trapped in a lie
Hoping to get through.

(Eleonore:)
I travelled far
I've seen it all
And bad things happened to me.

All the lights that struck down on me
Endless hours in doubt and lament
Disbelief and what lies ahead
Walking downtown roads

Don't you lead her into temptation?
Prevent her soul from falling deep
Be the one that guides her way
And lead her out of this giant MonstroCity.

People felt regretful compassion
„Never long for these days to come“
So she said and lay down for sleep
Weeping tenderly

And in her dreams she stood at the shoreline
A placid spirit eased her pain
The girl relived a different story
Of the beauty and the beast.

Don't you lead us into temptation?
Prevent our souls from falling deep
Be the one that guides our way
And lead us out of this giant MonstroCity

Turn the darkness into daylight
Think of the one she used to be
Make her feel all she enjoyed in life
And lead her out of this giant MonstroCity
And lead her out of this giant MonstroCity
