Alberich / Final | A Second Is A Year (CS) [HOS-732]
Alberich / Final | A Second Is A Year
Label: Hospital Productions – HOS-732
Format: Cassette, Limited Edition
Released| 31 May 2021
Initially begun years ago in response to Justin Broadrick's earliest project predating godflesh from 1983 - in particular the two Final 7”s from cult labels 'fever pitch music’ and 'manifold' were an early influence for Alberich. Slow motion churning synths like a crack in the earth with sulfur springs steaming from the primordial broken desert floor. Part split/collaboration/remix 'A Second Is A Year' shows Alberich at his most restrained assembling tense emanations crushed by metal on metal shifting, creaking and pressing.
The utterances of vocals similar to that of a lost soul or last rights supported by the dynamic and maximum/minimal emotional hydraulics of Final. High pressure keyboards, gale winds and sandy ruins effects textures. Two generations of heavy electronics see eye to eye for a second before the entanglement of space and time gasps a last meaningless breath.
