bcb723 One of those "you have to listen for yourself to get it" albums. This is an immersive, disorienting work that touches many genres (black metal, prog, post-rock, Zorn-era Mike Patton-esque vocal screams) but is in its own entirely self-created darkened world. By the time the drums start up again 12 minutes into album highlight " Vasemman..." you are either all in with Oranssi Pazuzu or way out. Take the time to for this to get under your skin. It's a challenging mind-fuck but well worth it. Favorite track: Vasemman Käden Hierarkia.

The Catalyst On "Värähtelijä", Oranssi Pazuzu's brand of blackened psychedelia layers lustrious black metal with innovative symphonic overtones to produce a wholly original musical soundscape. Favorite track: Vasemman Käden Hierarkia.
Nick thumbnail
Nick A truly mesmerizing and heavy experience. The horrific mindscapes that this music can conjure is a curious place to explore. There's a fair bit of diversity in sound for this album as well. Absolutely worth a listen for people who like doom-influenced black metal and probably worth a buy! Favorite track: Hypnotisoitu Viharukous.
Sekator thumbnail
Sekator Pretty interesting slab of experimental metal, with a strong blackened flair. I can see this being of interest to fans of Sigh and similar.

These guys are definitely trying to push the envelope of metal and I respect that. Favorite track: Saturaatio.

Bardo Morales Absolutely mind-blowing album from one of the most amazing bands out there. There's a huge cinematic vision in this extreme psychedelia of unique infectious darkness and nightmarish atmosphere. A masterpiece of the experimental.

Alex Rosenberg Oranssi Pazuzu absolutely stepped their game up with this release. The writing is so much more intricate, and their sound has become both darker and more adventurous. Hypnotic through and through. Favorite track: Vasemman Käden Hierarkia.

Appearing live at Maryland Deathfest 2017.

In 2013 Finland’s Oranssi Pazuzu issued their ‘Valonielu’ LP, an album of timeless creative immensity that was met with ubiquitous praise throughout the world, and solidified the band’s position as one of the most forward-thinking and interesting metal bands. Now, in the early months of 2016, Oranssi Pazuzu returns with the follow-up album and fourth overall, the mind-bending masterwork ‘Värähtelijä’.

Oranssi Pazuzu, since birth, has never been satisfied to stick with a formula. Each album has seen the band expand upon its previous incarnation and then, like a supernova, blow it up and transform again into something recognizable but completely new. ‘Värähtelijä’ continues in this vein, giving the band much more room to diverge and explore the vast regions of hypnotic progressive psychedelia and the nebulous outer limits of Scandinavian black metal. Songs explode with radiant ultraviolet color and plunge into the deep black darkness of innermost consciousness. If ‘Valonielu’ was the creation of a universe, ‘Värähtelijä’ is the magnification and expansion of its infinite boundaries.

A 70+ minute sprawling voyage, ‘Värähtelijä’ more accurately represents the stunning live presence of the band where the songs often span new and previously unheard dimensions of form and structure. Not meant for genre purists, Oranssi Pazuzu are on a trip all their own; modern electric pioneers on an expedition to unlock the keys to the hidden spaces all around and inside us. 20 Buck Spin is pleased to once again present the innovative brilliance of Oranssi Pazuzu and ‘Värähtelijä’.

This release is on 20 Buck Spin in North America. Europeans should order from Svart Records.
