Oranssi Pazuzu - Muukalainen Puhuu

Alas, a combination of weird occurrences and technical setbacks has once again stifled communication with the outside world. Have no fear, though, I shall take advantage of this brief window in time to leave you with this terrifying and trippy album of psychedelic black metal from Oranssi Pazuzu. I mentioned this album the other day without realizing that I had neglected to post it, despite the heavy rotation they receive here in Swampland.
Grafting the tenets of second-wave black metal - blastbeats, tremolo picking, and spooky keyboards - and grafting onto them elements of surf, kraut-rock, and dub, Muukalainen Puhuu (roughly "The Stranger Speaks") is a terrifying black hole sure to darken up any end-of-the-world soiree or maddening drift through the cosmos.

  1. I hope you're aware Oranssi Pazuzu just released their second full-length.

  2. A bit more spacier in both lyrical content and musical style, and hypnotic as always, Kosmonument feels like its pulling one further into cold, endless space to view the sights and lament ones hopeless existence.

    Uh, what I meant to say was "Kosmonument is awesome." but I guess thats what you get when you wake up at three in the morning for no reason.

    Also, I've been reading your blog for quite a long time now and have to say that you really do post interesting stuff. I'm not sure I would've ever stumbled upon Black Death, Eight Hands For Kali, Witch Hunt or If The Bomb Falls without this blog. Thank you!

  3. You're welcome! I still haven't fully absorbed the new one, as there are so many good new albums from the last few months, but I do really like it.

  4. Exploring the realms of the black metal world....Psych Black Metal. Can't wait to hear this.
