Majeure, aka AE Paterra of modern prog duo Zombi, will release new solo album Mass Flashback on September 27 via Holodeck. (Pre-order.) Nearly 20 years into his career, Majeure's mastery of atmosphere, dynamics, soundscapes and emotion remains in top form, as you can hear on the album's towering opening track, "Longing, Love, and Loss." Arpeggiated synths form the backbone of the song, as Majeure adds layer upon layer of sound, building to a shining apex. The video for the song, directed by drip//cuts, sets the song to degraded VHS-style imagery. That premieres in this post and you can watch, and check out the album artwork (by Jeremy Schmidt aka Sinoia Caves), below.

Steve Moore, the other half of Zombi, released a new solo album, Beloved Exile, in May.
