Paroxsihzem's debut has been known to cause vomiting and a desire to destroy. The band doesn't let you breathe from the minute it starts. Prepare to be annihilated.
Favorite track: Deindividuation.
Some reviewer was lamenting how the production is fucked up. Why yes, yes it is! And it's the rotten cherry on top of the horrible, putrid sundae of subterranean atmosphere these guys conjure up. Seems you can't go wrong with death metal from Canada lately.
Formed in 2007, Paroxsihzem puts forth a harsh, dark, demented, and atmospheric form of Black/Death metal. Their debut CD offers production that gives a very suffocating and nauseating feeling to their music which is only appropriate for the type of themes and inspiration used. There is no specific area of interest as history,philosophy, psychology and suicide are all touched upon as inspirational elements. The relation between all these is to reach the darkest, non-fictional embodiment of humanity, no spiritual, fictional or delusional inspirations used, only tangible events that convey a much more brutal and contorted view of humanity allowing for a closer association to the reality of existence. Each song in and of itself is unique, ranging from doomy and atmospheric, to chaotic and hateful, this is to help convey the insanity within humanity by utilizing a variety of powerful elements within the music.
PSA: if there was an album you heard a couple years ago and thought it was ok, listen to it again and you might love it.
That's what happened to me with this album. I cannot fathom why it didn't stick with me back then. Same thing happened with Decoherence's Unitarity for that matter. Matten
