Romanian folk black metallers Negură Bunget have parted ways with long-time members Hupogrammos (vocals, guitar) and Sol Faur Spurcatu (guitar). Founding member Gabriel "Negru" Mafa issued the following update:

"This has to be one of the most difficult messages to be written. We are sorry to announce that Hupogrammos and Sol Faur have ended their journey along Negura Bunget. Our paths are now apart. We wish them all the best on their new endeavors (their new project will be announced at a later time).
Meanwhile, a new Negura Bunget line-up is assembled , which will continue the path started almost 15 years ago. Rest assure, we are keen to prove there is more to be said by this band, and we will work to fulfill our spiritual endeavor relentlessly .
All Negura Bunget scheduled plans (concerts, festivals, contracts with Aural Music/Code666 Records and Prophecy Productions/Lupus Lounge) will be completed in the new formula. New website and myspace page are developed and will soon be online.

Negru, of behalf of Negura Bunget.

The new official Negura Bunget line-up is:
Corb - guitars/vocals
Spin - guitars
Gădineţ - bass
Inia Dinia - keyboards
Ageru Pamanatului - vocals/pipes/percussions/xylophone
Negru - drums/percussions

A word from Hupogrammos and Sol Faur: We would like to thank everybody who supported and believed in Negura Bunget and invite you to follow our further musical activities."

Actually I wanted to replace it by folk black metallers, but forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.

Respect to Negru for assembling a new line-up for Negură Bunget so quickly. I wish the best to Hupogrammos and Sol Faur Spurcatu and the current line-up of Negură Bunget.

Hmm. I never like it when they replace vocalists... But okay, Negura has made some overwhelming good albums, I've seen them live quite some times.. Let's just hope they can keep this formula up

Replacing both guitarists!? never a good thing especially in BM. I really like this outfit, i wish them all the best.

Which one is Damnated, Corb or Spin?

I guess the original line-up was really great, especially the vocalist. I hope they find musicians who are worthy of replacing the superb leaving ones.

This definitely sucks.. Ill be looking forward to the Hupogrammos and Sol Faur hopefully the project will sound similar to Negură Bunget.

Losing both the vocalist and guitar player could pretty much change a band totally. This aint good, could siginal a very unwanted change to the sound of one of the most orignal and underrated bands out worried

Anyone seen the new line-up or heard them???? Are they still good??
