Point Final is a CD anthology by Belgian cold wave band Isolation Ward, formed in Brussels in 1979 and centred around musicians Stéphane Willocq and Jean-Pierre Everaerts.
After early live shows at venues including Plan K, Isolation Ward recorded haunting classic Lamina Christus as their first single, produced by Peter Principle of Tuxedomoon, and released by Les Disques du Crépuscule in April 1982. The band released a second single, Absent Heart, a year later. Unfortunately line-up changes troubled the band, and Isolation Ward played their final gig in May 1983.
Point Final features all tracks from the two Crépuscule singles as well as material from the cassette album Point de Départ. The CD booklet features archive images and detailed sleevenotes.
