‘Powerclashing Maximalism‘ by Autocatalytica is an album that smashes all preconceived notions of rules you thought existed and brings a unique experience to the listener. There’s something for everyone here. Sure, ‘Powerclashing Maximalism‘ is progressive and heavy but it’s so much more. I don’t think there is anything similar at the moment. Each song has its own distinctive sound which is different from the rest. However, there is a thread of musicianship that links them all together. Here’s what Thorfinnson had to say about ‘Powerclashing Maximalism‘:
Powerclashing Maximalism’ is an expression of the many different facets of progressive and heavy music I am engaging at this point in my life, with little to no regard for thematic consistency between tracks. Each song is a fully realized Island of uniqueness that expresses something totally different from the previous one. On the last record, I felt like I was really losing perspective with what was good and quality (especially in the vocal department) seeing as I did so much of it completely isolated. With this record I really wanted to move away from that mindset and integrate as many collaborators as possible to create a sort of “Broken Social Scene” of metal type vibe. This was a fantastically inspiring experience and I am really grateful for having been able to work with so many different amazing musicians throughout the process.
