Exit Fear - "Crestfallen"
(Bad Cake Records)
When are you people going to learn that space is dangerous? Think of all the movies you've seen set in space. Something bad always happens. It is a law of nature.
This concept holds true for Crestfallen by Exit Fear. Prepare yourself for a tense battle between life and death in the cold, silent reaches of space, as pulsating synths conjure imagery of a solitary spacecraft drifting across the vastness of the universe. Out here, The Quiet Can Be Very Loud. Being alone, with only the hull of a manmade vessel between oneself and the magnitue of open space is daunting enough, without some malevolent force unleashing itself within the confines of the ship.
Once the danger begins, it is plain to see that there is no escape from the lurking evil that awaits the forsaken space traveler. In the second track, Space Does Not Care, it is apparent that there will be no rescue. Everything else that follows is a slow dance with fate.
Ultimately, this release turns out to be exactly what the unfortunate soul featured on the cover art warns it will be - a tension-riddled horror show in space. Plenty of chilling moments of terror are ready to be experienced anew when you open the airlock on Crestfallen.
