Critically acclaimed Finnish psychedelic black metal wizards Oranssi Pazuzu open the doors of perception on the fifth full length “Mestarin Kynsi” which goes beyond standard music categories feeling more like an insane trip full of colorful surprises and enigmatic nightmares.
“Ilmestys” immediately conjures an unsettling atmosphere with the obscure experimental approach of the synths creating an apocalyptic slow burning ensemble emphasized by the creepy growls and the murky rhythmic crescendos.
There is an apparent calm on “Tyhjyyden Sakramentti” due to the psychedelia infused synths and the melodic guitars yet a chaotic rhythmic rampage is destined to take over combining blackened gritty riffs and frenetic industrial style arrangements.
“Uusi Teknokratia” has a cold groovy essence with a blend of abrasive guitar riffs and opulent mystifying electronic layers that ensure a series of artsy and even dissonant rhythmic variations while the malevolent growls seem to emerge from a distant hellish abyss.
The experimental composition thrives within the eclectic soundscape of “Kuulen Ääniä Maan Alta” that revolves around moody borderline futuristic electro beats that will acquire tumultuous industrial elements leading to claustrophobic rhythmic segments embellished by the psychedelic nuances of the synths.
Oranssi Pazuzu basically reminds you that it’s the right time to jump through the rabbit hole but who knows if you’ll ever manage to get out because it just seems really easy to get lost within the mysterious twisted sonic maze of “Mestarin Kynsi”.
