Highlights


Since birth, ORANSSI PAZUZU, 'The Demon Of The Wind With The Colour Of Cosmic Energy,' has never been satisfied to stick with a formula. Each album has seen the band expand upon its previous incarnation and then, like a supernova, blow it up and transform again into something recognizable but completely new.

The band was formed in 2007 by Jun-His (vocals, guitar) and Ontto (bass guitar), who started jamming with Korjak (drums), and Evill (synthesizers, organ, effects) in order to travel into uncharted musical territories. During its initial months, the band wrote songs collectively, fusing together various influences from space rock to black metal, to capture different states of mental cosmos. These early songs were recorded in Korjakʼs family cabin in the late summer of 2008 and released as »Muukalainen Puhuu« in 2009.

In 2009-2010, ORANSSI PAZUZU played shows around Finland and continued to write music that twisted towards more metallic and aggressive moods. In September 2010, they played their first concerts outside Finland in Germany and the Netherlands.

»Kosmonument their second full-length album, a concept album about a drifter lost in the void, was released in October 2011, followed by various European festivals in 2012, including Roadburn Festival and Hellfest. A year later, the band decided to work with Jaime Gomez Arellano (GHOST, PARADISE LOST, etc.) and traveled to his Orgone Studios in London to record their third album »Valonielu« in 2013 which was presented live on their first full European tour shortly after.

ORANSSI PAZUZU returned in 2016 with the mindbending »Värähtelijä an album that continues in the vein of their previous album, giving the band much more room to diverge and explore the vast regions of hypnotic progressive psychedelia and the nebulous outer limits of Scandinavian black metal.

In 2018, ORANSSI PAZUZU and their Tampere cohorts DARK BUDDHA RISING, known for their grandiose slug-paced ritualist doom metal, recorded a new album, which was released on Svart Records on April 5th, 2019. The amalgam of these two entities was melted as one on »Syntheosis« and released under the moniker WASTE OF SPACE ORCHESTRA. »Syntheosis« is based on a commissioned work for Roadburn Festival and was performed live in April 2018 in front of over 3,000 people.

The journey through space and time continues.
