Our first unexpected highlight was not an entirely unexpected one, if we’re honest. We were anticipating great things from Oranssi Pazuzu, but what was so overwhelming about the performance was how many other people got caught swept up in the positivity and the incredible vibe of the show.
That feeling resonated for a long time afterwards, there was quite a buzz throughout the festival!
“The line to see Oranssi Pazuzu inside Het Patronaat was massive even by Roadburn terms, so it was pure luck that landed me inside close to the stage as Finland’s finest (and only) purveyors of psychedelic black metal sent the rest of the faithful packed inside the church walls into an ecstatic trance. Sweat, strobe lights and pounding rhythms dominated, scales were mangled and transformed, bodies hurled themselves across the stage, and Oranssi Pazuzu proved yet again that they’re one of the most compelling live acts in the world. It’s hard to describe what it’s like to see them play—fan-shot video gives you a slight idea of the chaotic aspect, but really, you just need to see them for yourself” – Kim Kelly / editor at Noisey.
