Lately so many people are talking about this band and their latest album. ”The rise of cosmic black metal” or ”i call this a revelation” are some of the comments that i found on several sites. So, driven mainly by curiosity, i decided to see what the fuss is all about. Ladies and gentlemen, today we review the new Oranssi Pazuzu album.
Oranssi Pazuzu is a five piece, black metal band from Finland. They’ re definitely not your typical, black metal band though. They came into existence back in 2007. ”Värähtelijä” Lp was released on the 26th of February. Seven tracks are included in this album. If someone asked me to define their sound then probably i would call it something between black metal and heavy space rock. Nevertheless there’s definitely much more in this album so my advice is, don’t try to define it. This album has a certain degree of charm or this something that i can not fully describe but it makes me want to delve more into it. All songs are written in finnish. Forgive me for i do not speak any finnish. Doesn’t really matter though because music is a universal language. This album sounds absolutely mesmerizing and it surely sounds inspired. Check out ”Lahja” for example or ”Vasemman käden hierarkia”. Each song tells a story of its own. And rest assure that their songs are going to haunt your playlist for a long time.
I don’t know if this is a bold statement but i think that ”Värähtelijä” is a strong candidacy for album of the year. These guys clearly took it to another level. In my mind there is no doubt about it. Nevertheless you’ ll have to see for yourself. Free your mind from everything that’s bothering you and listen to ”Värähtelijä”. Here are your tickets for this magnificent journey:
