16:32 - Karlabos But it's a second degree influence u.u If Oranssi has psychedelic on it then it makes first degree stoner influence. Plus the riff is memorable, atmosphere is trippy. All the stoner scenario is set =]
16:29 - Apothecary Yeah, now that I think of it, this actually is probably one of the closest things to "stoner black metal" you could find *waits for Marcel to tell me I'm wrong* [link]
16:26 - Apothecary Stoner metal is deeply rooted in psychedelia, but also remember that psychedelic rock is deeply rooted in the blues as well, so the influence is still there
16:24 - Karlabos The last album does. Well, I don't necessarily connect bluesy with stoner, for me stoner metal is somewhat consisting of slow to mid paced memorable riffing, with psychedelic vibe and retro production
16:20 - Apothecary Not to mention, you're really taking that track out of context imo, most Oranssi Pazuzu actually doesn't sound like that
Have you ever waited at the shore and listened to the waves rolling in? There's something predictable in the familiarity of it, as you become accustomed to the sound of the movement of the water toward you and then away again. This is The Turn Of The Tides.
A vast difference between this and their previous albums, but just as brilliant!

A masterpiece, no doubt. Seeing as so much time has passed since Weiland I wasn't quite sure what to expect ... a totally new and different band? A revisitation of the many familiar Empyrium elements? It seems we received both as The Turn Of The Tides sounds like no other group but Empyrium yet it also sounds completely different than any of the band's previous four full-lengths - a legacy not only untainted but also crowned! This album will certainly end up being one of my favorites of the year.
Laid down,closed my eyes and went on with this on a trip that proved to be a magnificent one. It was like an emotional tour throughout Nature. Goddamn I haven't been so emotionally moved by an album in a LOOONG LOOONG TIME!
Yeah, it's a grower. My initial reaction would've been 7'ish, with Dead Winter Ways being a good song and the other ones average songs with some good parts.
but after a dozen listens, I love it. In the Gutter of This Spring is a song I fall asleep to every night. With The Current Into Grey is a song i completely ignored in my first few listens, but I love it now.
Also, the first track builds up so nicely. The instrumentation and composing is great throughout the whole album
I almost forgot how beautiful the music of this band is. Definitely one of the most delightful albums for me this year.
My personal favourites: Saviour, Dead Winter Ways, The Days Before the Fall, With the Current into Grey.
