    This CD from 2010 offers 71 minutes of manipulated guitar drones.
    Fear Falls Burning is Dirk Serries. He plays an Epiphone Les Paul Standard in relation to Contemporary Boss, Danelecxtro and Marshall Effects effects.Portions of this music were released on a limited edition vinyl album in 2006. This CD reissue features a 33 minute bonus track.The first two tracks were recorded live at Kulturbunker Mulheim, in Koln, Germany, on October 13, 2005.

    Track 1: Guitar chords are processed and sustained to outrageous proportions, generating expansive drones that adopt pulsating textural formations akin to dark clouds. Additional aspects enter the mix, tenuous in character and tempering the flow with softer elements. These auxiliary drones achieve an airier character, contributing a swaying presence to the murky auralscape. Notably, this music bears little resemblance to conventional guitar stylings, often sounding more like organ rumblings.
    Track 2: Here, the textural drones are softer, initially gentler and more ethereal. But as the piece progresses, the overall timbre grows darker and grittier with the introduction of guttural guitar embellishments. These new factors manifest as fuzzy growlings that resound as from a subterranean vantage. Metallic scrapings merge with feedback to endow the soundscape with eerie punctuations. This mixture of coarse roars and vaporous drones achieves a spooky bearing that becomes quite enthralling.
    Track 3: a bonus track, a previously unreleased studio recording from 2005. Rising from a muted perspective, crisp tones indulge in languid oscillations which gradually swell in volume until they are joined by additional pulsations. A hissy presence creeps in, establishing a foundation of irritated snakes lurking just beneath the main flow. That flow eventually marshals more definition, flourishing into elongated guitar chords of a smoldering luster. Solitary notes sparkle amid the gloomy mien, lending a hint of conventional tuneage that remains suitably mired by the aspirating drones. Everything undergoes an extended deceleration leading to a soft conclusion.
