Terran Spacers are a Bournemouth-based (Dorset, UK) science fiction infused Progressive and Space Metal band.

Founded as a three piece in the apocalyptic year of 2012, the band quickly started to implement songwriter guitarist and vocalist Dave Spacer Antal’s song ideas, some of which had already been demoed by himself under other names since his last serious project.

The band’s songs, having their roots deeply in metal and rock mold a unique unearthly vibe to them with mostly science fiction based and layered

lyrics into often uncommon, unexpected song structures.

From the earliest days onwards the band adopted the harmonious A=432Hz tuning.

The use of the word Spacers in the band name is meant to pay homage to science fiction writer Isaac Asimov who is one of Dave’s greatest influences in choosing themes to write about to this day.

The band’s first recording was a 2013 EP titled “Sailing 7 Seas Of Space” recorded by the original lineup, and consisted of 7 songs and an extra track.

2016 brought two EP’s, both as forerunners to full length debut album “I, Metal”, which is due to be released in January 2018.

“Of Earthmen, Spacers And Robots…”, released in March 2016 contained 3 songs and 3 extra tracks. Cover art was designed by Viktor Antal.

“Glitch In Reality” followed in October 2016 with 3 songs and an acoustic guitar intro.
On these latest two recordings, just as well as on the full length debut album, the bass lines are played by Dave.

Well, all of the above mentioned is bollocks, just a cover up story to soothe you and which you might believe without having to overexercise your brain’s capacity. Here’s the naked truth what’s really happened:

On the distant planet Terra, (which revolves about a binary star system called the Testicles, which consists of two equal sized stars, hidden from Earthly peeking eyes by the interstellar cloud called the Ballsack Nebula), a certain group of space-people (a.k.a. Spacers) have decided to expand their influence in the direction of the star “Solus the Sun” and the planet Earth in particular. In what way they wanted to expand their influence is yet unclear. In hope of better achieving their goal they started learning to play a number of musical instruments, in which project of theirs they completely failed, so they ended up having to use their mind-bending abilities on their arrival and making their audience think they can play by telepathically implanting the music experience directly into their brains. They also tampered with your brain so that this idea seems ridiculous to you who read this true bio and you’re inclined to believe the previously read cover-up crap.

You know what? If you don’t believe me, – as I can read your mind you don’t – I won’t go on with this. Believe what you want! 😀
