"Confessions Of A Narcissist" marks the final full-length release by Fire In The Head ending six years of sonic warfare with an assault of manic, self-indulgent industrial electronics. Drawing as much influence from early punk / hardcore as from industrial / power electronics, F/I/T/H was conceived as a cathartic outlet to explore and ratify the delusions and social perversions resultant of psychosis and the darker side of man's conflicted dual nature, to fan the flames which engulf the borders between obsession, compulsion, lust and need. The tracks on this release were recorded in 2007-2008 and are the last of the shorter  vocal tracks which Michael abandoned in favour of "epic" length industrial / ambient compositions. Features guest appearances from Nick Blinko (Rudimentary Peni) and J. Randall (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Japanese Comedy Torture Hour) with exclusive artwork by Howard Forbes and Nick Blinko.

Available 5/14 from Cold Spring Records: http://www.coldspring.co.uk/discography/csr120cd.php


There will be two further posthumous releases featuring F/I/T/H:

MA/PE/FU Vol. 1 (F/I/T/H / Bereft split) LP on Existence Establishment

As yet untitled split cd featuring F/I/T/H, RU-486, Sistrenatus, Halthan, Sexual Assault Rifle and one other on Phage Tapes/Destructive Industries/Exterminate the Brutes

Review from filthforge: http://www.filthforge.org/reviews/revie ... issist.htm

Wrapped in an excellent and gruesome graphic presentation, "Confessions Of A Narcissist" is supposed to be Fire In The Head's final full-length recording. Michael Page is apparently going to put to sleep his noise offspring to concentrate on different sound territories in the future (he's already active under the Sky Burial and Irukandji monikers). No better way to exit the scene for Fire In The Head could be represented by this urticant collection of audio massacres. The American noise-maker has never been known for producing random chaos, indeed his stuff has always been powerful and deflagrating, yet aimed to create a strong, menacing and dark epic feeling, the same you find in the best episodes of this final statement.

Hissing frequencies slithering through walls of distortion, piercing buzzes going through your brains from side to side, and sinister voices declaiming their words of misanthropy and hate. Precisely what you would expect from your average power-electronics release, but, again, Fire In The Head thumbs out easily with a personal and convincing approach to this over-abused matter. "Some Dreams Last Forever", "Psychotic Underground Mk. II" and the epic "Narcissist's Mantra" prove it without any possible doubt. Farewell to Fire In The Head, dead but not at all forgotten.
