Negură Bunget - Part Ways With Keyboardist And Vocalist

Romania's folk black metal band Negură Bunget has checked in with the announcement about parting ways with keyboardist Inia "Neith" Dinia and vocalist Stefan "Chakravartin" Zaharescu. Inia has been part of the band for the last 6 years, while Stefan has been in the band for only a year.

Gabriel "Negru" Mafa comments on behalf of the band: "With a sad heart we have to announce that another major chapter in the history of Negură Bunget has ended. Long time member Inia Dinia is no longer part of the band. It was her decision alone to leave Negură Bunget in pursuit of other musical and personal paths and we can't but respect her choice. We thank her for everything she put in the band over the years and hope her musical path will only grow further in the future.

In related context singer Chakravartin is also no longer member of Negură Bunget. Different personal and musical reasons untangled our paths. We wish his good luck as well on their future endeavors! Even more changes within the band are likely to occur as well in the near future.

As things happened a bit unexpected our plans for the immediate future, namely an EP as presentation of the new album, and a Southern European tour in April/May, are hanging in the air for the moment. We will make a decision about everything in the following days.

This is definitely a hard moment for what remains of the band, but what does not kill you only makes you stronger. I hope we'll find within ourselves the wisdom to shape the right path for the future of Negură Bunget. Obviously we are now looking for some dedicate musicians to complete the line-up of the band, so if you feel you have what it takes to be part of Negură Bunget, please get in contact with us by"

Well, for all those (present company included) who felt that NB were in sore need of a superior vocalist, here is the change that can push this "litigious process/band" back in a positive direction. Shame about the keyboardist, though.

"This is definitely a hard moment for what remains of the band." I think the hard moment came last year when "Dar-de-Duh" came out and Negru realized who the real Negura Bunget is. Not that I dislike post-split NB, quite the opposite really, but that album blew Negru's band out of the water. That said, I am really intrigued by the "Transylvanian Trilogy" project and hope that it eventually sees light. A new vocalist would certainly not be unwelcome, though, as has already been pointed out. The vocals were far and away the weakest point of the otherwise strong "Poarta de Dincolo".

Oh, you haven't heard? They call themselves Dordeduh now. Pretty awesome stuff, you should check them out.

Go to Dordeduh, go to Dordeduh...

Those were my thoughts exactly. And it would be such a deep kick in Negru's groin
All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu... This is the truth! This is my belief! ...At least for now.
