0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

5/21/2016 - Review by: David Loveless
BM with multiple layers of weirdness
Oranssi Pazuzu is like no other. On their fourth album of psychedelic black metal, they are more progressive than ever and with aggressiveness that way overshadows the ambient moments. Although each of their albums seems experimental, Varahtelija is more inline with their debut album – Muukalainen Purhuu – than the more recent Velonielu. Great production compliments the fierce black metal vokills and the trance-like riffs across these 7 songs. The drums and bass lines weave through these tracks with seamless effort. If you love black metal and are open to multiple layers of weirdness, then Oranssi Pazuzu has released your new favorite album.
