As we enter the final days preceding the release of the anxiously awaited "Värähtelijä" LP from Finland's cosmic black metal visionaries Oranssi Pazuzu, the band proudly unveils the magical visual mastery of their incredible video for the album's pulse-pounding, hallucinogenic standout track, "Lahja."
Featuring a wide cast of captivating characters, filmed in a mystical Finnish wilderness, and embracing a visual delivery as enthralling and adrenalizing as the song's psychedelic progression, the intense video was directed by Janiv Oskar, with assistance from Ilona Lehtonen, and cinematography Lauri Harju. Vice Magazine-operated Noisey premieres the video, issuing, "'Lahja' is an auditory trip, and a visual feast. Set in a snowy Scandinavian forest, beneath the trees' watchful gaze, plumes of orange smoke envelop the pristine white sky, figures in black paint obscure symbols onto pale skin, wide-eyed specters bob and sink in cloudy pools, flames climb high. The world turns blue-and then, blood red. I dare you to take your eyes away for even a second."
