Among all the JOOF progressive psytrance producers from 2012, Subtara was the paragon of regular progressive trance. Terminal Destruction, as the name implies, is dark and menacing yet oddly melodic and melancholic. It's one of my 2012 favorites, and though it didn't get much recognition back then it's worth revisiting now:

Also bumping this one up. Its characteristic sound is the two-step synth at the beginning of the breakdown in the middle of the track, which gives it a familiar old-school feel while sounding modern.

Yeah, this one is pretty tasty gotta admit :p

Maybe lacks a bit of energy and momentum/development but makes up for it with nice textures.

I think what it's missing are vocals. Terminal Destruction fits nicely with the ones from Velvet Girl - Satisfy.
