about

Most of these songs were recorded 2013-2014 at my grandfather's house, in his study/man-cave/Casablanca appreciation station called "The Bogart Room". Once a car port with no walls, later a garage to house my grandpa's badass '65 Mustang, and then finally in his last years acting as his study - many recordings went down here and I'm grateful for every second I spent in his house.

I love you, Walt!
R.I.P.

about

Specules Santa Barbara, California

I started Specules in 2012 as an Black Metal project but over the last couple of years it has evolved to include many other genres of music. I really hate mainstream music so I find solace in creating music that is unconventional and strange, but creative and phenomenal.

- Dylan

I intend for this bandcamp to eventually have almost everything I've done musically.

Track Name: Smudge
Smudge

For my blood I heard the needle screaming
Murder man indulge in lucid dreaming
Scrub yourself until you bleed and tell me what you really need
Fuck the times you said to me that happiness writes our own eulogy
(can't you see)

Smudge

For my blood I hear the foil screeching
I spent all my cash on death intravenus
Seven shades of blue went gray as it eats my arm away
Dammit man what did you say our thoughts are swirling down the drain
(Am I sane?)

Smudge

We've been at this for so very long
But how far have we all really come
The rush you get before you drop

We've been at this for so very long
But how far have we all really come
The rush you get before you drop
Track Name: Laughing Spree
You've been with me
You have seen
All the bullets
All the gasoline

My face is white my hair is green
I don't know where the fuck I've been
I'm drenched in blood but my knife's still clean
I laugh when you scream

The joke is played, the punchline's re(a)d
Just like how you'll look when this city ends
My grin's cut into my face
And I believe in a place that laughs

And now upon
The TV screen
The clown prince of crime
Playing the game

The game of bat and mouse you'll see is
All I really want to play
I jest with dread and with TNT
I laugh when you scream

The joke is played, the punchline's re(a)d
Just like how you'll look when this city ends
My grin's cut into my face
And I believe in a place with bats
Track Name: One Thousand Steps
Relaxes my mind
As clouds above blow by
No enough to just look
I stare open-eyed and try to find

One thousand steps and back again
I hold my breath and watch the waves roll in
One thousand steps and back again

I lean into the wind
Howls a voice deep within
The sun shines on my face
I pull back the skin and let it in

One thousand steps and back again
I hold my breath and watch the waves roll in
One thousand steps and back again
Track Name: The Deep
This infection we're afflicted with
Applying poison to her lips
She is running from the sun
Alluring like a siren

Drowning go, into the deep
Tell me what do you see?
Drowning go, into the deep
Tell me what do you see?

And now I'm fixed upon a silhouette
And I'm down to my last hit
Feels like I am falling down
Inviting me into the ground

Drowning go, into the deep
Tell me what do you see?
Drowning go, into the deep
Tell me what do you see?

And the pressure caught in the undertow
Approach this dreaded slope
And the pressure caught in the undertow
Approach this dreaded slope
Track Name: Dark Bowers
Book of death bound in human flesh
Bring us to life
Sunset breaks, evil takes
You for a ride

Strange showers in dark bowers
Where lurking eyes stalk the insane
Strange showers in dark bowers
The evil dead remain

Wandering woods of no escape
Nowhere to hide
Unseen force spots every move you make
We'll make you die

Strange showers in dark bowers
Where lurking eyes stalk the insane
Strange showers in dark bowers
The evil dead remain

Yet the candle begs to burn
The front porch is silent
And the wind blows

Yet the candle begs to burn
The front porch is silent
And the wind blows

Yet the candle begs to burn
The backyard seems quiet
And the cellar door
Left in dead silence

Cabin with no lights turned on
The quest for blood is quiet
A splatterfest, I think you know what's wrong
Oh the incoming violence

Bowers and your happy face
See the flowers, bloody flowers
Locked inside your happy place
See the clock hands going backwards

Bowers and your bloody face
Rotting wood upon creaking staircase
Locked inside your happy place
Relief all injuries with duct tape
Track Name: Vainglorious Crib
I've been waiting you
To come to me
Savage kick, to the ribs
Vainglorious crib

I've been taking refuge
Behind your walls
Secret's out, you won't shout
Vainglory in your house

Hug me in hell
And we'll sleep til the summer ends
Hug me in hell
In worse shape when we came out then (I'll tell ya right now)
Hug me in hell
And drink the poison

Hug me in hell
And we'll live til the summer ends
Reunite cells
In worse shape when we came out then (I'll tell ya right now)
Hug me in hell
And join the circus

Sleeping on the sidelines
Shooting up on cloud nine
I will always win the day

Sleeping on the sidelines
Shooting up on cloud nine
Step aside it has to be this way

Yeah you know the way you look into the crib it takes me
Back to when I was a little boy
Yeah don't ever worry bout the drip or taste oh yeah it takes me
Yeah death is something with which we always toyed

Yeah get on in the crib
Break out the dollar bill
Track Name: Seeing
Rusty shades
Cast that melon haze
Of sunlight on my
Soul's everything

Turn eye to the sky
Seeing red again
Turn eye to the sky
Seeing red again

The fire's scorn
An alluring glow
The crackling scream
Of the tree that burns

Turn eye to the sky (bend some time and hop inside)
Seeing red again
Turn eye to the sky (bend some time and hop inside)
Seeing red again

"...and the wind blows cold
relentlessly screaming.
Bringing it all down,
a nightmare to be dreaming.
Shadow swallows,
consuming everything.
Prepare for dark days."
Track Name: Death On Dead Night
Dividing body from mind
Search for solace wasted time
Found a haven in being blind
Separate and confined

Hunger drives its climb
To swallow the mountainside
It's a matter of mind
Death on this dead night - death breathing new life

Roaring builds, wheel spins
Animated lifeless dead
Breathing deep lucid dreams
He hopes he might be sane

Hunger drives its climb
Death and not much surprise
It's a matter of mind
Death on this dead night - I will again rise
