Spectrum

by Human Future

/
  • Record/Vinyl

    In creating Truthseeker Music we had no intention to release anything that we felt could be deemed insincere or predictable, so there are few better examples of this than the debut album from Human Future, ‘Spectrum’. 


    At 6 songs totalling over 40 minutes, Human Future seamlessly fuse a plethora of genres such as Hardcore, Krautrock, Black Metal, Post Rock and electronic music. Whilst vastly eclectic the songs create a cohesive, dynamic whole, driven by a clear intent.


    Whereas the band's 2013 EP 'Anachronism' was a critique of religion, 'Spectrum' loosely tells the story of a recluse confronting the life they have led and what lies ahead. Touching on themes of aspiration, obsession, creation, personal struggle and acceptance, ‘Spectrum’ is a remedy to the ebb and flow of life.

    The overall sound has been actualised with the help of Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House, along with the near-legendary Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The final stunning package is completed by the breathtaking artwork of Vi Shu. All pieced together it showcases the key component for Truthseeker Music - integrity and honesty with the art that is being created.

    

This release is just the first step…

Track Name: Forge
This is catharsis
A break from the daily grind
A war cry against apathy
Ambition spurring, depression spurning
Despite a nihilistic reality, emotions never cease
Through irreverence shines sincerity
For all the jest there are convictions
To peer beneath the veil, humanity's many delusions
To remedy the mind's contusions
Casting off the quandary
To finally achieve.
Track Name: Misery Drone
I don't see much for the future
Too many variables lie in wait
Vast substance to consider
Refusing to evade
Plans doubtless to falter
See little beyond each day
Years hiding in a prison
An unwelcome intrusion
Biding time before plunging into the maelstrom
Facing the sprawling chasm inside
Facets splintering into hysteria
Unfurling neuroses, festered into psychoses
New faces, new minds
To accept, to dispute
The voice inside
Track Name: Cycle
The mirage suddenly faded
Over years grown silent
Humbled by uncountable wrongs
So afraid and thus alone
You're failing to live
You've become a voyeur
Guarded from external threat
So long spent alone for comfort
Time lost as life creeps onwards
Vicarious life in video
A projection, watching the world
Living. Feeling. Dying.
Trapped in the web
Primed to search for more
With eyes to see it all.
We could witness a litany
Ceaseless torment globally
Obfuscated with laughter
Dreading the seconds to follow
Why face a threat head on
In principle or masochism
Where is the reward
For being in harm's way
Heroism nor bravery appeal
Just fear of pain and loss
So sit and stare at the screen
Always remain where you've been
Sleep away a timid life
Whilst dreams are no escape
Track Name: All Must Wither
Nothing
Not anything
Beyond this is naught
Any wishes to linger indefinitely
Are mere emblems of our species' fearful ignorance
Benevolent though they may be
They prolong our species mental infancy
No pain
No longer
No senses
There will be no trace beyond the atoms that formed you
Merging with the whole irrespective of cognisance
From that which carried our weight upon it’s back
We shall eventually return
Your perception has eroded
Snuffed out with the final beat
All caution and passion negated
No chance of reprieve
What is left will fester away
Stripped of consciousness
The last breath punctuating
Maybe memories will persevere
In the superseding
Generations have failed to conquer
Others favour illusions of eternal life
None will ever venture
Into such metaphysical states
Spirituality is a farce
For all that divides
We converge in decline
United by decay
This dichotomy is inescapable
Track Name: Aberrations
I crave absolution
Why can be hard to discern
Replete with guilt
Which ill to assuage today
Consciousness dissipating
Dismiss consolation as deceit
Cannot trust in many
Cannot stifle the angst
Further the loathing
All that is wanted
Cannot be granted
A body to be company
Yet then a ghost to me
Transfixed in the static
Entering the surreal
I'll ignore this world
In favour of hallucinations
Track Name: Creation Wish
Such desire is strong
Out of all control
Struggling to relate
Struggling to maintain
Narrowing perspective
Pessimistic vision
Afraid of nearly everything
The imbroglio merely deepens
Yet driven to prosper
To aim for something beyond
The confines of mind
Of tedious sciolism
Creative coma still suffocating
Imperfect vision coming to life
Each note and line excruciating
Paranoid of any contrivance
Deftly stepping word to word
Castigating falsehoods
No reprimand is harsher
Than one uttered to the self
Decision looming constantly
Onwards or to cease
Battles of will and ego
Threaten corruption of intent
Rather accept this chance
In the face of decline
