Some bands are truly mesmerizing by their level of creativity. The Romanian combo known as Negura Bunget is one of them. Their unique blend of Black Metal has so many layers that it is hard to categorize them into only one style. As my first encounter with the band, 2006's OM truly convinced me of Negura Bunget abilities and it also encouraged me to look further into their discography.

08.06.2010 What? This guy is just listening to this marvel for the first time? Four years after the actual release? WTF?
Well, better late than never I guess.

Now come and experience a truly unique album. Black, folk, atmospheric, progressive, it's all that and much more. It's an emotional and spiritual journey. If I ever had a shamanic trance that's probably the music I would use to describe it.

Enough with the talking, go and check this out.

  This album only just clicked with me yesterday.
Great stuff, not what I would usually listen to, but worth making the effort.

Atmosphere is a pretty subjective term but I for one can name about 50 albums that I think have a "better" atmosphere than this.

Rating: 9 A lot of otherwordly instruments in here, for a greater cause, that cause being the creation of one of the most thought-provoking 'folk' black metal releases ever. Actually, fuck the genres, this album is in a world of its own.

Could give it 8,but 8.9 is too much. It's good album. Atmosphere,sounds,vocals blablabla are good,but not AWESOME as the rating tell. Of course this is only my opinion....

And you're entitled to it - we here at Metal Storm appreciate it when you elaborate on an opinion rather than just typing "overrated", though.

I personally agree with you to be honest. I've listened through NB's entire discography on a few occasions, giving this album special attention due to its praise. I'd probably even score it lower than you, maybe a 7, since I can't get on board with the infusion of Romanian folk elements. I'm more of a Măiastru sfetnic kind of guy.

But don't you think that "brilliant album" or "good album" are kinda same answers like "overrated". Can't say that my comment was good but those are same shit

Agreed - and even if comments like that are used to describe an album like this, we encourage everyone to provide a little more information on the topic at hand.

Don't worry, I'm not picking on you. I've only recently rejoined the site and happened to catch a one-word response (somewhat of a pet peeve considering we're all supposed to be overly opinionated and stubborn feces-flinging asshole metalheads who know everything and are always right).

Rating: 7 I think this album's main problem is the production. I think if it were remixed and softened up a little I would rate this a lot higher.
