Genre/Influences: Rhythmic-Noise, Industrial, Industrial-Techno.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: This is the sixth album by Sans-Fin and the third one released on Hands. The name of the project, title of the album (translated as “withered leaves” in English) and songs are still all in French although this is a German project.
Content: Sans-Fin has used the fans to encounter a harsh, Industrial-like and Techno-infused sound. It’s still part of “Feuilles Fanées” but the global feeling is that this work is even harder and takes in good-old Rhythmic-Industrial inspiration. This is hard-banging music for underground dance floors which comes to its end by a remix of Greyhound.
+ + + : Sans-Fin is an interesting project from the Hands roster. There’s this contemporary and I should dare to say trendy heavy, perverted, Techno-Industrial sound but still good-old Rhythmic-Industrial reminding the early years of the label. “Survol” is the perfect illustration of this imaginary sonic bridge between past and present; a hard-pumping composition carried by an electronic sequence. The remix of “Être Seul” by Greyhound is a remarkable apotheosis to this furious sonic violence.
– – – : The tracks are a bit predictable after a while. I’m missing a bit more variation and that’s probably why I prefer the previous work “La Fin De La Nuit”.
Conclusion: Get ready for a sonic lobotomy which comes as an ambassador of the harshest, contemporary, projects from the Hands roster.
Best songs: “Survol”, “Faire Le Deuil”, “Mademoiselle”, “Être Seul – Greyhound Remix”.
