Maduro :: Terror is the Night (Octofoil)

An unyielding—if not unsettling—snapshot of petrified electronic music that simply doesn’t let up.

Maduro has kept a prolific release schedule with Octofoil, balancing an assortment of shivering electronic deconstructions against downtempo industrial strains with Terror is the Night reported as being his final release.

Wrapped in a slew of crunchy bass distortion and erratic percussion, ten-years of Maduro and we’re just beginning to see an overview of his career buried deep in unlit caverns. Each audio fracture presented on these nine tracks is filled with skewed experiments, brokenbeat, post-industrial, ambient, noise and undulating synth notes peppering the landscape. “Your Hands” even delves into slight dubstep wobbling as the title track shakes late night goth clubs. An array of slowly unwinding grit pulls in every direction like early-era Witchman and Scorn scraping sound boxes across solid concrete (ref. “To The Grave”). And as “Burn The Negatives” delivers emotional atmospheric ambient layers, “Jinxed” takes encrusted vocal clips and stressed beatwork to slowly evolving degrees of darkness.

Ultimately, Terror Is The Night is an unyielding—if not unsettling—snapshot of petrified electronic music that simply doesn’t let up.

Terror Is The Night is available on Octofoil.
