Finn of Tomland After a 3 year hiatus (probably due to the C-shit pandemic) one of my absolute favourite labels is back and that makes me very very happy.
And it makes me even more happy that Matter has a new release out because i so love his hard hitting industrial soundscapes that always are so well syncopated and filled with minute details.
Very highly recommended. Favorite track: Preda.

Refrattario is a 8 tracks album of industrial electronics and technoids rhythms. Layers of pulsing synths and noises are shaped by the force of the rhythm while subtle changes and dots of ambiance provides to give the tracks tension and variety. Heavy beats, smashed frequencies and tones are delivered to the listener for a hypnotic tension experience under the unrelenting pressure of the rhythm.

Matter is the moniker of Fabrizio Matrone. His music has released on international labels like Kvitnu, Ant-Zen, Black Chrysalis Archive, Le Petit Machiniste and Soviet Media Kontrol. He started recording and performing live in 2001 playing at several festivals all over Europe. In contrast to his drone-oriented Heidseck project, Matter is focused on industrial electronics, rhythmic walls and deep, dirty analogue soundscapes.
