Finnish psychedelic metal titans Oranssi Pazuzu have just announced a new album. Mestarin Kynsi is the band’s first album to be released through Nuclear Blast, and it’s out April 17. The band has shared a trailer for the album, which features some of their signature, mind-bending progressive metal along with some cryptic pieces of what sounds like an overarching narrative (“A new totalitarian order is established and the heretics are silenced violently”—probably not coincidental that this mirrors a recent global rise in authoritarianism). Check it out below along with the album’s tracklist.
Mestarin Kynsi follows 2016’s Värähtelijä.
