The result was the first ever CD release by Final simply entitled One, this was released by Sentrax in Europe and Bill Laswells label Subharmonic in the U.S.A in 1993. One collected Justins first new work as Final in over 6 years, also included on One was a long piece that compiled small edits of some of Justins earlier work as Final from 1983-86. The influences on Final were now much wider than the earlier 'industrial' influences ; sombre and textural ambient sounds had a huge bearing upon the early 90's incarnation of Final, Justins exposure to Brian Eno as a youngster had made its impact. More releases followed - Final '2' on Sentrax once more, the full-length CD - 'the first millionth of a second' (in collaboration with Godflesh's GC Green) which was released on US experimental music giant Manifold, Jesu bassist Diarmuid Dalton also began to collaborate with Justin, both on Final '2' and on the 'Solaris' CD EP released on Alleysweeper/Invisible, later re-released as a full length with a 30 min extra track. After two 7" singles and numerous compilation appearances, Justin continued to record Final material but without a planned release schedule due to being so busy with other projects. In 2001 Neurot recordings (the label from Steve Von Till / Neurosis) approached Justin offering to release Final '3', Justin set about slowly recording and accumulating material from then until early 2005, some in collaboration again with Diarmuid Dalton.
Bringing us to the present day, Final '3' is finished and due for release on Neurot Recs. In February 2006, its a double CD set compiling various recordings from 2001-2005. Since forming Jesu, Justin has become very active with Final inspired by his new works on '3',recording has already begun for forthcoming releases, and now Justin is preparing to perform as Final, his first performances as Final since 1985. Final collaborators from 1983 to the present day include Andrew Swan, Guy Pearce, Nicholas Bullen, Kevin Johnson, Paul Neville, GC Green, Diarmuid Dalton.
