The classic sounds of Krautrock and horror soundtracks are skillfully resurrected by Pittsburgh's veteran synth composer AE Paterra on his highly anticipated new full length under the solo alias Majeure entitled Mass Flashback, out today. Known best as one half of legendary prog-duo Zombi as well as a member of experimental rock band Grails, this multi-instrumentalist has a discography almost two decades of groundbreaking work and continues to innovate. Building on the creative richness of his critically acclaimed albums Timespan and Solar Maximum, Paterra re-ignited his fanbase over the summer with the video for "Longing, Love, Loss" and the follow-up single "Face Dancer" leading up to the album release. Today, with the arrival of Mass Flashback, Paterra's latest body of inspired brilliance hits the streets in full. Stream it, buy it and love it wherever music is sold.
"Nearly 20 years into his career, Majeure’s mastery of atmosphere, dynamics, soundscapes and emotion remains in top form"
"The grandiosity of Tangerine Dream and the ambient tenderness of Ashra abound on Mass Flashback, a record powered by a healthy dose of propulsive acoustic drums and drum machines and an array of richly nuanced analogue synths"
"There’s still notes of Majeure’s Krautrock past, but this time there seems to be a more emotional heft here; a score to a heartbreak"
