final / fear falls burning Final + Fear Falls Burning (LP, £17.50)label: Conspiracy
Dirk Serries (Fear Falls Burning) and Justin Broadrick (Final) are both musicians with an impressive discography that spans over two decades. They both emerged from the same underground scene in the early eighties, releasing small print tape releases, often on the same labels. When they finally met for the first time in 2007 on a Jesu / Fear Falls Burning European tour they hit it off straightaway. About a year in the making this collaborative album showcases Final and Fear Falls Burning's ability to expand the drone genre by allowing power chords, figurative plucking and electronic-esque soundscapes to lead the four songs. The collaboration is much more than just a sum of both their projects together as it realises an entity on its own. In your face, metal-esque and avant-garde at the same time, Final and Fear Falls Burning took the leap forward in creating an intriguing variation on drone music.
