Paroxsihzem - Abyss of Excruciating Vexes

Canadian black/death chaoticians Paroxsihzem (I’m so glad I only have to type that and not try to say it out loud…) have returned on Hellthrasher Records with their new 12″, the ravaging ‘Abyss of Excruciating Vexes’. Billed as some of the most violent music the band has created, this promises to be PROPERLY nasty…

‘Dillanties Torture’ opens with one of the most sickening riffs I’ve heard in a while, a cacophonous raging blitzkrieg of heaving chaos, with unholy vocals and an atonal weirdness. This is heavy, mind melting shit, the kind of death metal that opens doors in space and time to call through fell beasts of madness. It smacks of Portal or Mitochondrian, and the intensity of tracks like ‘Isolation’ or the suffocating ‘BZ Experiment’ weighs upon your mind, straining to snap it.

Closing with the excellent Arkhon Infaustus cover, ‘Dead Cunt Maniac’, Paroxsihzem are as incomprehensible as their name, and as omnipotently crushing as is humanly possible. Unbearably brutal in parts and suffocatingly dense, ‘Abyss of Excruciating Vexes’ is an essential release for those who like music that takes you to that mental brink, before catapulting you over the edge.
