Admittedly I was quite impressed with Land:Fire’s debut vinyl only LP. However this sophomore album is far superior on all counts & absolutely flawed me on introductory listens.

Concept-wise this album is solidly and cleverly focused, revolving around the detonation of the first atomic device ‘Trinity’ at 5:29:45 am on July 16, 1945. Musically this encompasses an expertly executed dark ambient/ heavy electronics sound. Yet the most engaging element of the album’s atmosphere is its technical & clinically tinged take on the genre, whist still retaining an ominous orchestral aura. Additionally, digital nuisances, rhythmic interludes & radio chatter are interspersed within the compositions, adding to the complexity of the musical framework.

Packaged in a slick full colour digipack DVD cover with insert booklet, the visuals equally measure up to the music contained within.
