Kotimainen psykedeelistä black metallia soittava Oranssi Pazuzu on aikeissa julkaista uuden EP:n, joka pitää sisällään kaksi ennenjulkaisematonta kappaletta. Näistä ”Kevät”-niminen nauhoitettiin 2013 ilmestyneen ”Valonielu”-albumin sessioiden aikana, kun taas ”Värimyrsky” on vanhempi ja luonteeltaan nihilistisempi kappale. EP:n miksauksesta sekä masteroinnista vastasi Jaime Gomez Arellano ja sitä tullaan myymään yhtyeen tulevilla keikoilla. Uuden EP:n julkaisun lisäksi yhtye julkaisee uudelleen kaksi ensimmäistä albumiaan nimeltä ”Muukalainen Puhuu” ja ”Kosmonument” ja voit lukea bändin tiedotteen tästä:
“So it’s 2017, which means the Orange Spirit of the Wind is now ten years into the existence. We are celebrating by touring the Mental Possession MMXVII, but also by recovering some old sounds to please your record playing habits.
During the last few years, we have had many people asking from us about the availability of our earlier albums, the vinyl versions of both and also the debut CD being sold out for some time now. We have been promising a repress basically since 2011, when the vinyls first came out, and we are very happy to say this is finally being realized.
To us, both Muukalainen puhuu and Kosmonument nowadays sound something like a different band, but they still embody many of our principal musical ideas in songs like ‘Korppi‘ or ‘Kaaos hallitsee.’ A shorter chapter – but at least for us an important one – in our early evolution was the four-song session we did for a split album with Tampere underground friends Candy Cane in 2010. These songs were going for a more metallic sound after the trippier debut, and they would probably have fitted among Kosmonument cuts nicely. They are now reissued as a standalone 12” EP, remastered for a better sound quality.
And to keep our minds away from digging the old stuff only, we are also releasing a 10” vinyl EP containing two new songs. Although not ‘new’ in every sense of the word – the first song, ‘Kevät,’ was recorded during Valonielu sessions in 2013, but left out from the album because its darker mood didn’t quite seem to fit in with the other songs’ more cosmic approach.
The second, ‘Värimyrsky,’ is also an older and more nihilistic one that we have been playing with for a long time, and now finally decided to record it in our home cave with the help from our Brother-in-Wastement Jussi Saarivuori. The 10” EP was mixed and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano and will be available at the upcoming shows.
