"With ethereal elements infiltrating a stabbing, frigid blackened stomp, the opening elements of Valonielu's fifth track, 'Olen Aukaissut Uuden Silmän (I Have Opened A New Eye),' is the perfect introductory sampling of the celestial expansiveness of the boundless Oranssi Pazuzu's utterly creepy delivery.

Svart Records and 20 Buck Spin today announce the joint release of "Valonielu," the new LP from Finland’s Oranssi Pazuzu. The following press release was issued about the album:
"A known entity to the most attentive and adventurous of black metal fans, Valonielu offers a vibrant, colorful cataclysm of psych, space rock and black metal that cannot be easily categorized as any one particular genre or any single influence. At once celestial and boundless yet malevolent grim and harsh, Valonielu is certain to bring Oranssi Pazuzu to new levels of importance within the modern music scene.
"Oranssi Pazuzu's previous album Kosmonument was received with great critical acclaim as a brilliant album by a band developing into something all their own. On Valonielu the band has sharpened their songcraft into a more succinct and salient statement, formidably invoking ‘90s era Darkthrone, yet boldly reaching farther out into the multiverse of the psych and ExperiMental side they have always inhabited. From the beginning chainsaw riff of album opener 'Vino Verso' ('Askew Sprout') to the climactic, world downfall of final track 'Ympyra On Viiva Tomussa' ('A Circle Is A Line In The Dust'), O.P. masterfully establish a cosmology all their own.
"Having found a new home on Svart Records in Europe and 20 Buck Spin in North America, Oranssi Pazuzu breathe ascendant new life into an often stagnant present day black metal scene. 'Valonielu' will be released on both the LP & CD formats, by both labels, with release dates of October 11th in Europe and October 15th in North America respectively. Live show announcements and more album news will follow in the coming months."
