Oranssi Pazuzu - Muukalainen Puhuu (2009)

The English translation of this album is “Alien speaks”. That, combined with the cover image, should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from this album. Branded as “Psychedelic black metal”, this band takes atmospheric black metal and adds a space-themed keyboard that could have come right out of the soundtrack to a 1950’s science fiction movie. This album has parts that are downright creepy and parts that are trippy as fuck. This is one of the most innovative ambient black metal bands I’ve heard it a while – defiantly worth checking out even if you aren’t usually into the genre.
