"La Marginea Lumii" (trans: Outskirts Of The World), a brand-new track from Romanian folk black metal band Negură Bunget, has been made available for streaming over at ReverbNation.
"La Marginea Lumii" comes of the band's upcoming new MCD Poartă De Dincolo (trans: "a gate from the above" or "carrying from the other side"), which will be released on April 25th through Code666 Records.
Negură Bunget have issued the following band update, including a detailed year recap and their plans for the future:
"2010 was the most intense year in the history of the band. Two albums released, Măiestrit on Prophecy Production and Vîrstele Pămîntului on Code666 Records, followed by a long European tour as headliners (Spirit of the Land Tour), another tour in autumn (Black Trolls Over Europe), some festivals in between (including Hellfest), some line-up changes (guitarists Corb and Spin were replaced by Urzit and Fulmineos), a MCD to symbolically end our 10 years cooperation with Code666 Records and a lot of work, all make this year special and unforgettable.
"We are proud to announce Negură Bunget is now finishing the work on the upcoming MCD - Poartă De Dincolo ("a gate from the above" or "carrying from the other side" ).
The material will be recorded again at Negura Music studio. As the name suggests it, the material focuses on exploring the relation between worlds, either from above, under or beyond... The MCD is the last Negură Bunget material to be released by Code666 Records marking the end of a collaboration started almost 10 years ago. We thank them for all the support and wish them good luck in the future!"
Prophecy Productions are proud to announce that Dordeduh, the new band of the former Negură Bunget core members Hupogrammos and Sol Faur has signed a long-term contract with Lupus Lounge / Prophecy.
Hupogrammos explains the philosophy behind the band: "Dordeduh aims to link the two words "dor" (English: yearning for something, missing something) and "duh" (English: spirit) to the significant values that make us humans, melting together the soul and the spirit. The way one aligns one's experiences with one's own soul, the way one relates to the Universe, the way one perceives and integrates, through Intention, the perpetually flowing Transcendence, that is what defines different levels of humanity in a person, that is what makes one Human."
Negură Bunget are ready to announce the title of the next album "Vîrstele Pămîntului" (English: The Ages of the Land/Earth).
"Vîrstele Pămîntului" is an album about embracing your destiny, about choosing and consciously assuming a way of life. The earth is where we came from and where go back into, the one from above and beyond us. Understanding and respecting it is understanding yourself, your purpose and destiny. "Vîrstele Pămîntului" is an album about places of the earth and places of the spirit, about bounds transcending worlds.
The work on the album is scheduled to be completed on a seclusion Negură Bunget will take into the wilderness of the mountains in the following weeks, to concentrate soley on the work for this album, which will be a landmark for its future evolution.
