  • Artefact S9M1 // MONOLOG Limited Edition

    In May 2018, aerchologists have discovered five objects from an undisclosed location.

    All of the objects are made of an unknown black material and have the shape of a triangle. The border is painted white.
    On top, on the lower end of the triangles, a pattern of dots is visible. Every triangle has its own pattern. Theories evolved quickly around the dots and the most common one is, that these could be some sort of counter.
    Above the dot patterns, a small electronic device with an aluminum case is plugged into a rectangular slot.
    Above this slot, a twisted line points to the upper corner of the triangle. The aerchologists where startled when they found out that these strangely glow in the dark.

    A few days after the initial discovery, scientists found out that the aluminum devices in the slot are storage devices. Here is what they could decode:

MONOLOG by SPARTALIEN (spartalien.com)

Runtime: ~66 minutes

Stereophonic pictures recorded by a brain. A deep dive into the abyss of instincts. A honest and unfiltered output of the feelings from an alien that has lost his star map. Trying to dismantle the potential answers to unanswered questions. Faith. Loss. Nostalgia. Change. Life. Death. For you and them. All of us.

Although you can listen to the tracks independently - the album is meant to be one piece. Relax, close your eyes, breathe and listen. Thank you.

Track Name: Setting The Mood (Intro)
~Lyrics~

PAULA:
I don't think I've ever seen you in this mood before.

JEFF:
I guess it's because I've never been in this mood before.
Track Name: Denial (Interlude 1)
~Lyrics~

RULER:
You have your report?

EROS:
We contacted government officials. They refuse over existence.
Track Name: Blurry Sight (Interlude 2)
~Lyrics~

EROS:
It's been absolutely impossible to work through these Earth creatures. Their soul is too controlled.
Track Name: Approach (Interlude 3)
~Lyrics~

[GENERAL ROBERTS PLAYS THE RECORDING]
VOICE ON RECORDING:
This is Eros, a space soldier from a planet of your galaxy. Since the beginning of your time, we have been far beyond your planet. It has taken you centuries to even grasp what we developed eons of your years ago. Do you still believe it impossible we exist? You didn't actually think you were the only inhabited planet in the universe? How can any race be so stupid? Permit me to set your mind at ease. We do not want to conquer your planet. Only save it. With your ancient, juvenile minds, you have developed explosives too fast for your minds to conceive what you were doing. You are on the verge of destroying the entire universe. We are all part of that universe.
Track Name: Unforeseen End
~Lyrics~

GENERAL ROBERTS:
That's the end of that one.
Track Name: Good Bye Cruel World (Outro)
~Lyrics~

JEFF:
You fiend!

EROS:
I? A fiend? I am a soldier of our planet! I? A fiend? We did not come here as enemies. We came only with friendly intentions. To talk. To ask your aid.

COL. EDWARDS:
Our aid?

EROS:
Yes. Your aid for the whole universe. But your governments of Eath refused even to accept our existence. Even though you've seen us, heard our messages, you still refused to accept us.

COL. EDWARDS:
Why is it so important that you want to contact the governments of our Earth?

EROS:
Because of death. Because all you of Earth are idiots!

JEFF:
Now you just hold on, Buster.

EROS:
No you hold on. First was your firecracker, a harmless explosive. Then your handgrenade. They began to kill your own people a few at a time. Then the bomb, then a larger bomb. Many people are killed at one time. Then your scientists stumbled upon the atom bomb. Split the atom. Then the hydrogen bomb, where you actually explode the air itself. Now you will bring the destruction of the entire universe, served by our sun. The only explosion left is the solaronite.

COL. EDWARDS:
Why there's no such thing.

EROS:
Perhaps to you. But we've known it for centuries. Your scientists will stumble upon it as they have all the others. But the juvenile minds which you possess will not comprehend its strength, until it's too late.

COL. EDWARDS:
You're way above our heads.

EROS:
The solaronite is a way to explode the actual particles of sunlight.

COL. EDWARDS:
Why that's impossible.

EROS:
Even now, your scientists are working on a way to harness the sun's rays. The rays of sunlight are minute particles. Is it so far from your imagination they cannot do as I have suggested?

COL. EDWARDS:
Why a particle of sunlight can't even be seen or measured.

EROS:
Can you see or measure an atom? Yet you can explode one. A ray of sunlight is made up many atoms.

JEFF:
So what if we do developed this solaronite bomb? We'd be even a stronger nation than now.

EROS:
Stronger. You see? You see? Your stupid minds...stupid! Stupid!!

JEFF:
That's all I'm taking from you!

[JEFF LEAPS AT EROS]

LT. HARPER:
Get back here you jerk! Let him finish.

EROS:
It's because of men like you that all must be destroyed. Headstrong, violent! No use of the mind God gave you.

JEFF:
You talk of God?

EROS:
You also think it impossible that we, too, might think of God? You, [TO COL. EDWARDS] who wear the uniform of your country. You see, I wear the uniform of my country. Yes, we've had to use drastic means to get to you, but you left us no alternative. When you have the solaronite, you have nothing. Nor, does the universe.
