20 Buck Spin will officially issue the back-catalog for Finnish cosmic black metal outfit ORANSSI PAZUZU in the US for the first time, confirming stateside editions of the band’s Muukalainen PuhuuMLP, Farmokologinen LP, and Kosmonument LP. All three records will be made available domestically in conjunction with the band’s debut and only confirmed US performance at Maryland Deathfest.
Since 2013, Finland’s ORANSSI PAZUZU has released two critically lauded full-length albums via 20 Buck Spin in North America, 2013’s Valonielu and 2016’s Värähtelijä. Both albums showed the boundless enormity and remarkable uniqueness that ORANSSI PAZUZU alone create. Are they a psych influenced black metal band or a black metal influenced psych band? No one knows for sure and it doesn’t matter anyway. No other band can bend these genres into such an extraordinarily cohesive whole. For most in North America the ORANSSI PAZUZU black hole only came into focus with the latest two albums. However, the band had previously recorded and released two full-length albums and a split LP. With their growing reputation, the band’s early releases have become increasingly high in demand. 20 Buck Spin now presents the band’s back catalog on various formats domestically for the first time.
