Credits to entity over at Pile of Remains for this hidden gem.

I am particularly fascinated with this demo, because absolutely zero information exists about this band anywhere on the internet. They are not in the Metal Archives, don't have a Myspace page, I created their Last.fm page, and their name isn't so much as even mentioned anywhere at all, except for this blog and entity's. Hell, I don't even know the title to this demo or what year it was released in. All we know is that a band named Paroxia released these three tracks, and that's it. Nothing else. Very mysterious.

Anyway, onto the music. For being so unheard of, this music is actually quite good. The main style is rather chunky with a decent amount of speed and ferocity in both the instrumentation and the vocals. The guitars are lively with solos and choppy riffs, along with what seems to be some jazz influence thrown in there for good measure. A very energetic piece of music, and I certainly hope to, at the very least, discover more information about Paroxia!
