As Oranssi Pazuzu‘s new album Valonielu nears split release on 20 Buck Spin in North America and Svart in Europe in mid-October, today Pitchfork unveiled the first single from the album.
According to the press release: “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. Possibly the most straightforward of the six expansive songs on the album, while jagged blasts and blitzkrieg attacks appear intermittently, the majority of the track’s crushing mid-paced thunder runs rampant with a frigid, unwavering destructive trajectory”.
Along with the song, the cover artwork for Valonielu, created by Costin Chioreanu/Twilight 13 Media has also been released for the first time.
