Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars "Muukalainen Puhuu" is the debut full-length studio album by Finnish experimental/ psychadelic black metal act Oranssi Pazuzu. The album was released through Violent Journey Records in April 2009. Translated from Finnish to English the title of the album means "Alien Speaks".

The music on "Muukalainen Puhuu" is quite unique IMO. The basis in the music is raw and simple black metal in the vein of Darkthrone, but with an experimental and psychadelic twist. The early seventies Krautrock scene and especially Can is a big influence. The vocals are raspy, extreme and delivered in a quite convincing manner. The tempo is mostly mid-paced and there are only very few faster sections on the album. The atmosphere is tripped out and spacy and the use of vintage keyboards (lots of organ) really give the music an organic feel. Some of the songs like "Dub Kuolleen Porton Muistolle" ("Dub for a Memory of a Dead Whore (of Babylon)") and "Kerettiläinen Vuohi" ("Heretic Goat") have some lengthy and rather noisy krautrock styled repetitive parts. The title track is a bit different from the rest of the songs with it´s ambient (no drums on this one) atmospheric experimental sound. "Myöhempien Aikojen Pyhien Teatterin Rukoilijasirkka" ("The Praying Mantis of the Theathre of Latter-day Saints") is in the other end of the spectra as it is probably the track on the album that´s closest to traditional raw black metal. It´s also the track that features the fastest tempo. Even in this song there are twists and turns that keeps it from being "regular" black metal though. The lyrics are in the Finnish language and it´s something I hope Oranssi Pazuzu will continue with on future releases because it gives the album a mystical aura and quite frankly it just sounds really charming. The meaning of the words are of course lost on me but this is one of those cases where it´s a minor issue.

The musicianship on the album is excellent. The vocals may be extreme but they are full of expression, the rythm section create that repetitive hypnotic krautrock atmosphere to perfection and the guitars and keyboards bring some texture and memorability into the mix. This is of course not your average commercial pop tunes, but still there are melodic content enough to satify those who can´t live without memorable hooks.

The production is really succesful. It´s raw enough to satisfy the metal head yet very organic which should appeal to the psych fans. The marriage between the genres is completed by the sound production.

"Muukalainen Puhuu" is an excellent and quite unigue album by Oranssi Pazuzu and personally I´m really happy that I discovered their music. They definitely stick out from the crowd with their original style and innovative approach. I find "Muukalainen Puhuu" to be a very recommendable album to people who think that a blend of raw and simple black metal and experimental/ psychadelic rock sounds interesting. A 4 - 4.5 star (85%) rating is well deserved. One of the best releases for me in 2009.

* On a sidenote. Feast on that beautiful cover artwork. One of the most intriguing covers I´ve seen in a while.

Review by Conor Fynes
4 stars 'Muukalainen Puhuu' - Oranssi Pazuzu (8/10)

It is unfortunate, but it feels that the genre of metal has become so vast and popular amongst musicians that many bands tend to run as one; rarely having a unique sound of their own to muster. With that in mind though, it becomes that much more of a treat when a metal band has a unique sound. Oranssi Pazuzu came to me as a 'psychedelic black metal' recommendation. Although I had heard some successful dabbling in this fusion from the likes of Nachtmystium and even Enslaved before, I must say that no other band I have thus heard truly merges the two genres together as well as is heard with Oranssi, and their debut album 'Muukalainien Puhuu'. Torn between the acid-tinged hippie sound of the 1960's and the grim black metal aesthetic, the end result is something playfully nightmarish, and utterly original.

'Korppi' opens 'Muukalainen' up with a hit; a manifest of the band's defining traits. Suddenly, the listener is plunged into a world of campy surf organs, raw electric picking, harsh vocal rasps, and an alien atmosphere. Think of a black metal soundtrack to a classic 1950s science fiction film like 'Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers', and you might be on track with what the sound is like here. Oranssi Pazuzu really does well with the more upbeat psychedelic sound, and while the music maintains its intense atmosphere and uniqueness during the slower parts, the nightmarish fun factor is lost. From this debut alone, it is clear that Oranssi's greatest strength is in the way they work with the catchier songwriting.

Things are performed rather admirably here, although the rather clean production may feel a little too polished for the black metal purists out there. The music itself does not feel to be performed with the utmost passion, but the strength rather lies in the brilliant way the band is able to emulate the playfully tripped out nature of classic psychedelic rock bands, while all the while maintaining their black metal approach.

These cosmonauts have left an indelible impression with their unique sound, and while it does feel like some of the songwriting could have done well with stronger hooks and a greater consistency, 'Muukalainen Puhuu' has put Oranssi Pazuzu on the map.
