Fear Falls Burning - Disorder Of Roots
For the final Fear Falls Burning, Dirk Serries offers four long songs that touch upon many of the aspects of the drone that the Belgian has explored over the years with this project. "Disorder of Roots" is laconic, menacing, beautiful and unobtrusive. Serries' guitar, along with bass and drums, takes one more spin through his world of understated but confident drone, and gives us a coda more than worthy of his signature work.
"The Roots Rebellion" leads it off, a study in the progression of emotions, with a rousing gritty coda to an otherwise dreamlike drone. "Virtue Of The Vicious" and "Chorus Of Dissolution" offer muffled, muddy drone, Serrie's guitar exploring a disjointed, Floyd-like obsession with a chord or echo of a riff. Finally, "Provoke Disorder" features some death metal growling, some spacey psych guitar and a long echoing fadeout, a fittingly lingering final look at the world Fear Falls Burning have created over the years.
"Disorder of Roots" is looping, brooding, and poetic, a fitting finale for Fear Falls Burning, who have more than established a place in the history of refined psychedelic drone. They will be missed, though this, like all their releases, will slowly be revealing their sonic secrets for years, through each listen and each return to their signature magic.
