On February 26, Finnish psychedelic black metal outfit Oranssi Pazuzu will release their new album Värähtelijä via 20 Buck Spin/Svart. Today, they’ve shared a stream of the first track to be released from it, “Hypnotisoitu Viharukous,” via Spin. As expected, it’s a sprawling and cosmic beast of a song, blending black metal menace, post-hardcore muscle, psychedelic weirdness and all manner of sounds in between. It’s hard to say if, through and through, this is even entirely a metal song, though it’s definitely heavy, and for that matter, awesome. It’s a strong start for what looks like it’s going to be a pretty massive metal record.
Listen to the Oranssi Pazuzu “Hypnotisoitu Viharukous” stream below.
Värähtelijä follows 2013’s Valonielu.
