Negură Bunget is a black fog coming from a deep dark dense forest

Sunday Morning, the sun is shining, could be time for some Gin/Tonic related warm dance music. But I did quite the opposite, I went for some dark, folk inspired, tribal Black Metal, Negurã Bunget from Romania. They sounds just like I would imagine, they would have made Rock music, in Transylvanian Iron Age, if they had the tools to do so. Negurã Bunget means, “Black foggy forest” in archaic Romanian. That is just how it sounds.

Drummer Negru explains :
Negură Bunget is a black fog coming from a deep dark dense forest. The name tries to picture somehow the kind of atmosphere, both musical and spiritual we’d want to create through our music. It has also an esoteric nature, standing for the inexpressible parts of our ideology. The two words are also from the Tracic substrate of the Romanian language (the oldest one, containing about 90 words) as the interest for our local history and spirituality is something of crucial importance and meaning for us as a band.

Negură Bunget formed at the end of 1994 as a duo, they had a number of changes in personnel over the years, latest founding member guitarist and vocalist Hupogrammos, left the band in 2009 to form another project called Dordeduh.
