"Psych Minus Space Control" -- the deranged fifth full-length from curious Norwegian black metal peddler Furze -- is currently streaming in its entirety, in conjunction with its release this week via Fysisk Format. Open the gateways to all forty-three hypnotic, disturbing minutes encompassing the album at this location. A track from the album is also available below. The following press release was also issued:
"The latest psychedelically-inclined blackened rock output from Furze's primary solo artist Woe J. Reaper and his close-knit team of henchmen have once again defied all expectations and delivered an expectedly odd, intriguing collection of unconventional blackened rock.
"Psych Minus Space Control is now ready for public consumption in multiple formats including digital download, CD and standard gatefold LP, and a special diehard vinyl version of the LP bearing a numbered logbook limited to 200 copies. Check out photos of the diehard version as well as an audio preview of the album at this location.
"Following a long line of releases including four previous LPs on labels including Candlelight and Agonia, Psych Minus Space Control, defies even the eccentric practices of past Furze albums, more rock/jam/broken-prog-oriented than ever, yet not without the usual oddities evenly mixing up the entire production. Recorded in three different studios, with sessions dating over ten years, the album contains material dating back to 1992. With over ninety percent of the LP lying in the vocal-free realms, Furze transgress the borders of black metal and classic psychedelic rock, evoking a mystic sensation of terror and elevation, suggesting a musical archetype where the powers of Sun Ra, Hellhammer and Black Sabbath come into one."

Norwegian black metal deconstructivist cell Furze has completed the fifth chapter in the band's curious discography, and is prepared to release its most psychedelically-inclined blackened rock spectacle to date, in the form of "Psych Minus Space Control." The following press release was issued about the album:
"Those who have studied previous releases cultivated by the Furzement are aware how each album this rogue outfit unleash steadily dumbfounds and intrigues, the more adventurous musical deviants immediately come back for more. The songs of Furze are almost completely cultivated by the infamous Woe J. Reaper -- who metaphysically cultures these hymns, from inception, through execution, all the way into production of the final product including the cultivation cover artwork and overall aesthetics of each release's delivery.
"A plethora of Furze releases have infiltrated the masses over the past fourteen or so, years including several EPs and a slew of scattered demos, amidst four LPs. Trident Autocrat (2000) and Necromanzee Cogent (2003) were initially released on Apocalyptic Empire Records and later reissued by Candlelight Records directly after releasing the UTD full-length worldwide in 2007, followed by the 2010-released Reaper Subconscious Guide via Agonia Records.
