ORANSSI PAZUZU Announce New Album “Värähtelijä”

Finnish cosmic black metal outfit Oranssi Pazuzu have announced the release of their fourth full-length album and follow-up to 2013’s  Valonielu. The new record will be titled Värähtelijä and will be released on February 26, 2016 via 20 Buck Spin (North America) and Svart (world). The band issued the following comments regarding the upcoming, over 70-minute voyage:

“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 much more dynamic and trippy horizons. Lyrics-wise, the songs revolve around tripping in a psyche-space, with each song representing a vision or mirage that will be revealed to the listener. They are individual, but contain common elements with themes of unknown, sacrifice, transcendence, hate, hierarchy of power and, in the end, becoming a part of the cosmos through death.”

The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break along with a stream of Valonielu.
