FEAR FALLS BURNING - THE RAINBOW MIRRORS A BURNING HEART (LP)
"With all the power, noise, aggression and subtlety that comes from a single man performing real-time on the electric guitar through a maze of pedal effects, notes and chords shifting and multiplying over time into dense and trance-inducing walls of sound. Fear Falls Burning succeeds in uncovering a new language that stretches time and brings the listener to the edge multiple times, entrancing with the repetitive yet pure sonic presence of the electric guitar. Fear Falls Burning sets himself apart from the current drone scene by using different techniques and an expansive collection of pedal effects. The zen-induced result of a harsh method of musical effacement: Lonely tones drift through harmoniously singing clouds of sustain, black streams of crunching distortion flow underneath heavenly harmonics, minuscule melodies appear and drift off. With no overdubs or post-production effects involved, the compositions progress in an organic and natural way, giving the music a special feeling and soul that is missing from many recordings these days. This is Fear Falls Burning. Fear Falls Burning is the new solo project by Dirk Serries from Vidna Obmana. The FFB sound may appeal to friends of Sunn O))), Boris, Earth, Troum, Robert Fripp and all connaisseurs of heavy guitar drone layers!" (label info) Numbered edition of 300 copies.
