Bizarro death metal at its best, outsider death metal and spaced out skronk. Finland's Oksennus are unlike any metal band out there as their compositions veer into all the territories meat and potatoes metal enthusiasts may detest; indulgence in ambience and repetition, lack of aggression for aggression's sake. This is metal for wondering minds and venturous spirits.

I score it a 10-9 round for Spectral Voice. They both brought the heat though and scored big blows...I'm impressed. Wish they had a couple tracks each yo. I'll have to peep some more of their shit. Sic artwork.
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
