The Wire has issued a brand new track from Finland’s cosmic black metallurgists, ORANSSI PAZUZU, as the outfit’s fourth LP, Värähtelijä, is now less than two weeks from release. While the album’s seven movements collectively consume nearly seventy-minutes in total, the fifth track “Vasemman Käden Hierarkia” boasts a nearly eighteen-minute run time on its own, resulting a monstrous anthem which delivers an incredibly accurate representation of the LP’s mightily captivating and dominating overall attack.

Since birth, Finnish psychedelic black metal experimenters, ORANSSI PAZUZU, have 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. In 2013, the band 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. ORANSSI PAZUZU now returns with their fourth album, the mind-bending Värähtelijä; an album which 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.
