This mystical album will guide you through the most enigmatic mysteries of the UFO and alien phenomenon. It will be the musical and lyrical journey through the most crucial mysterious events and UFO conspiracies of the 20th century. Be ready for the trip into the unknown, prepare yourself to face the facts you never heard of before, be ready for the revelations of the most well kept secrets of human civilization!
It's a new chapter in Space Mirrors history which brings you a research into the UFO conspiracy subjects in the form of a modern Space Metal (with elements similar to Ayreon, Sigh, Arcturus, Ozric Tentacles).
"The conglomeration of styles, and the way it all just seems to work well together is really astounding. All this Metal/Space/Progressive stuff happening all at once, and then Nik will come in with a jazz jam... It really works... it gels nicely. This is the best Space Mirrors album yet. It will appeal to a widely varied audience." Jerry Kranitz of "Aural Innovations"
...released on Sleaszy Rider Records in 2009!

This album wouldn't be possible without the vast resources of this website:
UFOCASEBOOK.com - leading webb source in the field of UFO research.
B J Booth, a known UFO researcher and webmaster of Ufocasebook.com kindly agreed to write this foreword for our album:
From the late 1890's sightings and landing of the great airships, through the ground breaking Kenneth Arnold sighting and Roswell crash of 1947, the world has searched the heavens for the answer to the deep mysteries of UFOs. Many have claimed contact with these visitors from other worlds, and communicated their demands for a peaceful world free of war and weapons of mass destruction.
Those who trusted the governments of the Earth to protect and inform them have been sadly disappointed, and claims of governmental cover-up have clouded the skies of disclosure, although different groups have attempted to take this task into their own hands.
The mass sighting of a UFO over the O'Hare Airport in 2006, and lack of governmental investigation and interest proved to the world that if the mysteries of the UFOs were to be solved it would be we, the people, who would take the task to heart.
This task can take on many forms, not only the print medium, but also the universal language of music. Space Mirrors takes one the UFO mystery in lyric and song. From Space to Psychedelic to Metal, there is something for everyone. Space Mirrors offers us one more way to explore the mysteries of our universe.
