Oranssi Pazuzu - Kosmonument (2011)

Mindblowing Finnish psychedelic black metal. Haunting, layered passages of chiming guitars and atmospheric sounds lead to thorny, dissonant catharsis, in enveloping, hypnotic, curiously beautiful splendor. And don't sleep on their new album, Värähtelijä, because it's one of the best records of the year.

EDIT: A commenter just pointed out that 20 Buck Spin has reissued all of Oranssi Pazuzu's LPs, and that's super-rad; get 'em here.
