Oranssi Pazuzu reveals new album & streams first single

Posted by AP on 12/01/16

Finnish psychedelic / avant-garde black metallers Oranssi Pazuzu have debuted the first song from their anticipated new album ”Värähtelijä” (which translates roughly to ”Waverer”) — out February 29th on Svart Records. The track is called ”Hypnotisoitu viharukous” (in English: ”Hypnotised Hate Prayer”), and can be heard via Spin.com further down. Describing what we can expect to hear on the effort, the band offered the following comments:

Värähtelijä is continuing where we left off with Valonielu. But it plunges deeper into the pitch black hypnosis, combines progressive song structures to more free and flowing parts. At the same time, it’s the heaviest and the most atmospheric album we’ve done so far. The fusion between different ends of spectrum reveals new realities we’ve never discovered before. We really wanted this album to go to new places and to be the crossover album of genres we always wanted to do.

To further boost the idea, the album was done with Julius Mauranen who had previously done lots of Finnish shoegaze and indie pop albums. I think it’s safe to say that this is by far the heaviest stuff he has done and for us, working with a guy like him stretched our sound to way more dynamic and trippy horizons.

”Värähtelijä” comprises the following seven tracks:

01. Saturaatio

02. Lahja

03. Värähtelijä

04. Hypnotisoitu viharukous

05. Vasemman käden hierarkia

06. Havuluu

07. Valveavaruus

The group is confirmed to appear at Roadburn Festival (April 14th) as well as Desertfest London (May 01st) this year, with further tour dates currently pending. Given the band’s experimental nature, however, a possible appearance at Roskilde Festival does not seem totally unlikely. Here’s hoping!
