Recently unleashing his debut EP "Le Temps Peste" on February 7th, Maudiir, the one-man-band black /thrash project created by F. is offering the release for FREE download via Bandcamp HERE .
Coming from the underbelly of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Maudiir is an outlet for observations on obedience and industrialization riddled with man-made waste. With 80s heavy metal influences alongside black metal and punk, Maudiir is unique in sound; hauntingly dark while being corrosive and galloping.
Starting with guitar, F. works his way through each sullen track, adding drums, recording all the colorations and textures of the guitars, adding bass, and finally writing the words, very often at the same time they are being recorded.
The pessimistic aura of the music combines with lyrics about consumer society, religion, science going awry, addiction to technology, and environmental decay. “Le Temps Peste” is intense dark music. Another release is currently in the works.
"'Le Temps Peste' is a riff-driven EP, corrosive and galloping, mixing black metal, thrash metal and NWOBHM, that makes it a unique listening experience. The blood, sweat, and tears of a one-man project."

“Métal de bord en bord, ce projet fait partie de ceux dont les sonorités sont parfaitement heavy, mais ô combien inclassables, où se mêlent habilement les influences et saveurs auditives les plus diverses. Avec Maudiir, on fusionne avec brio black, thrash et death mélodique, avec une touche de métal classique et de NWOBHM dans les acérés riffs. Le temps peste inclut tout plein de riffs aussi corrosifs que galopants, qui rendraient très fiers autant un prêtre traître qu’une vierge de fer, risquant très bien de vous donner un sale mal de cou.” – BoulevardBrutal.com
“Metal through and through, this project is one of those whose sounds are perfectly heavy, but oh so unclassifiable, where the most diverse influences and flavors are skillfully mixed. With Maudiir, black, thrash and melodic death are brilliantly merged, with a touch of classic metal and NWOBHM in the sharp riffs. Le Temps Peste is full of corrosive and galloping riffs, which would make proud a traitor priest or an iron virgin, most likely to leave you with a bad neckache.” – BoulevardBrutal.com
