Dotflac The low-paced industrial techno fed with noise from Matter can't leave indifferent.

Blind worship to a demon of compression whose heart is beating with distortion, Paroxysmal is true to its name when it unleashes surgical kicks with wide-ranged damages to our eardrums. Dirty sonic bombs made of grimy textures, pachydermic beats and oppressive atmospheres stand alongside more ambient tracks, suggesting the fear we will learn to idolize in the rhythmic parts.

Absolutely uncompromising. Favorite track: Pressure.

Henrik Selin Great electronic sounds and songs ranging from hard pumping to ambient. Perfect for headphones with the lights off or on a late walk. Favorite track: Depth.

Finn of Tomland I have been looking forward to a new release by Matter after his two latest gems on this very fine label and it comes as no surprise that it's yet another precious gem from this very creative artist!

Matter is one of the most accurate and advanced distortion manipulators in experimental music today. Like a real acoustic surgeon, he perfectly knows how much wrecking and sonic destruction he can slice into a track to bring it to the perfect form and the most acute shape. Matter delivers extreme but grown up sound for those of us who are not afraid of difcult listening and enjoys all beauty of smashed frequencies and tones.

Paroxysmal is Matter's third album on Kvitnu. Paroxysmal's twelve tracks can be considered as continuation of Matter's Biorhexistasy LP, or also a big step forward in his harsh atonal grinding sonority explorations. Album is flled with multi shape resonances, murmurous thick heavy beats, crushed acute shattered scapes. Whole work holds very intense and rough tonal pressure full of sharp details and aural tension.

Paroxysmal presents a very twitchy and immersive tour for every mature, refned and sophisticated extreme music listener.
