ALBERICH/FINAL 'A SECOND IS A YEAR' | SPECIAL EDITION CASSETTE
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.
