Paroxsihzem is a three piece black metal band from Toronto, Canada. The band was formed back in 2007. ”Abyss of Excruciating Vexes” is their newest release. You can find four tracks here and one cover on Arkhon Infaustus’ ”Dead Cunt Maniac”. Nihilistic black metal is the case here in the vain of Black Witchery and Revenge. The thing is though they have blended their music with a lot of brutal death metal producing a sound which could be easily described as ”raw”. Krag’s vocals reminded me a bit of Nuclear Holocausto’s vocals(Beherit). What also made an impression on me is some of their riffs and their guitar solos. Take ”Dillanties Torture” for example. In my opinion this is the album’s best track. The other 4 tracks were o.k by me. I didn’t exactly fall in love with them. To be honest i mainly focused on ”Dillanties Torture”. That was actually the song i liked the most. I have to admit also i didn’t really like the album’s production. What i’m trying to say here is that apart from ”Dillanties Torture” i didn’t really enjoy this album. From a certain point i even got a bit tired. Please note though that this is just one man’s opinion. Check out these links:
