The writer Henry James once said: ‘deep experience is never peaceful.’
Through seven years of progression and discordant tenacity, Canadian progressive metallers MATTER IN THE MEDIUM are set to release their long-awaited self-titled sophomore effort. To experience its clinical chaos is a disorienting trip into the furthest reaches of an obsidian psyche.
Having honed their technical artistry onstage alongside Devin Townsend Project, Blackguard, and Beyond Creation, Matter in the Medium prove once again why Canadian metal can go mano a mano with any band from any corner of this brutal world.
