artist information

Negură Bunget

Negură Bunget is a black metal band from Transylvania, Romania.

Biography

Negură Bunget begin life at the end of 1994, as a duo, with Hupogrammos Disciple's on guitars/vocals/keyboards and Negru on drums. In 1997 Sol'Faur Spurcatu joined the group on guitar. Negură Bunget means "black foggy forest" in archaic Romanian. In a 2004 interview, Negru explained the symbolism of the name:

After one demo, one album and one mini album, three more full-length albums followed - Măiastru Sfetnic, 'N Crugu Bradului and OM - drawing heavily on the Transylvanian spirituality and esoterism of their home country. The success of Măiastru Sfetnic secured the band a three-album deal with the respected 'code666 record' label. Now reaching a wider audience, they began their first European tours.

'N Crugu Bradului included four songs spanning a total of nearly an hour, aimed at capturing the essence of traditional Transylvanian spirituality in black metal. The album is ranked as one of the band's crowning achievements, receiving acclaimed reviews from the metal community and in international reviews in Chronicles of Chaos, Ablaze, Ablazine, Ledo and Eternity.

The band described the album as:

In 2006 Negură Bunget released OM, which continues their conceptionalised approach to black metal and progressive music. . The album has received significant praise in the extreme music press; for example, it was ranked as the second best album of 2006 by the writers of the British Terrorizer Magazine.

Though their name is usually written as Negură Bunget, in their logo it appears as Negurā Bunget.
