We Meditate Under The Pussy In The Sky - Lars Bjørn - 2 stars

We Meditate Under The Pussy In The Sky

We Meditate Under The Pussy In The Sky
(Svart Records - 2012)

Finnish avant garde music from Opium Warlords, the one-man band that Sami Hynninen provide. I really don't whether to shake my head and drink some water, or just to go directly to sleep. This music is different in every way, experimenting slow guitars and bass guitars, experimenting sounds that never would be tried in other bands, of the 5 songs there is only one that has a little energy, and that is the song Slippy, where we get some wild death metal with lots of action, drums and guitars, but also here there comes a pause in the middle of the song, and the second part is slow death metal that will make you fall asleep if you are not already under the covers. This album is limited to 500 copies, and seems to be a wise decision.

By the way Hynninen has until now turned down all requests for live performances. I just ask: what is the meaning of the band Opium Warlords? Hope the future can enlighten us about that. This second album from Hynninen does not have any hints.
