Editorial Reviews

N crugu bradului opens and closes a complete and expressive cycle, a unitary vision melting mythological ambient, psychedelic and Transylvanian feeling into a complex layered musical and ideological structure.

Negura Bunget's fourth official release since their inception in 1995 is their most adventurous and mature work yet. A pure concept album based on the 4 seasons seen through the eyes of a shepherd, it consists of 4 tracks simply named I, II, III and IIII each one from 12-15 minutes long.
Since Negura hails from my birthplace of Transylvania, I am fortunate enough to understand the lyrics which are in Romanian (an unofficial English translation is available on [the website]). There are no satanic overtones, so if you are into such things look somewhere else. This release is about the four seasons and the changes they bring to nature. A very spiritual theme prevails throughout, without being pretentious or preachy.
The disc starts off with WINTER and as soon as the short intro ends and the instruments prevail, the first thing that becomes obvious is the production. Compared to past releases this is the best they have sounded. Each instrument has a life of its own, but yet the rawness needed to convey the Black Metal atmosphere and experience is ever present. What is great about this release is that the music is very "visual". I could almost picture the snow covered peaks of the Apuseni Mountains. These boys also know how to hold a good memorable riff, a challenge that has been lacking in today's Black Metal, save for maybe Immortal.
The second track SPRING, starts off with really eerie effects all conveyed through traditional instruments. The sound of melting snow and the growling of a bear coming out of hibernation are all very vivid visuals. It is a re-birth of nature and of the land. This track is the standout by far. Broken down into pieces it could be used to develop 4 different songs.

If epic, loosely structured, melancholic/melodic Romanian black metal is your thing then you're in luck, this is your new favorite band.
All four songs on N'Crugu Bradului are epic, meandering black metal interpretations of the four seasons(you know, spring/summer/fall/winter) that are brilliantly well played, invocating the feel of each season.
Negura Bunget are easily one of best newer black metal bands around today, not only playing a genre extremely well but taking it and molding it into something of their own creation. Amazing, brimming over the top with creativity Black Metal. Not a band to be missed.

N'Crugu Bradului is definetley Negura Bunget's masterpiece. Let's start with the packaging which is ingeniously made( I won't spoil it) and of course the music itself. The songs are based on the four seasons, they are simply titled I(spring),II(summer),III(autumn) and, IIII(winter). I found each and every song to be amazing each containing entrancing atmosphere. N'Crugu Bradului is an album that you could lose all sense of time while listening to. I STRONGLY recommend this album to anyone who is interested in Black Metal and various subgenres of it, prominently "forest metal" which fits N'Crugu Bradului perfectly description wise but still doesn't hit the point, Negura Bunget should make up they're own genre.

I must say up front my words can not properly describe what is 'N Cruga Bradului. But, I must try and say, to call this music Black Metal would be doing it an injustice. Yes, it is black metal based, but there is so much more going on. These are the musical sounds of the Romanian forests as conveyed by Negura Bunget. To these ears there is; anger, rage, sadness and despair along with a truly frightening beauty. You hear the wolves howl in the winter night, winds blowing with amazing force. I can hear the trees screaming in agony and cold water rushing over stone. At some point, hearing a peaceful, serene moving of leaves and animals. I think those who are reading this are getting the point. In my humble opinion, Negura Bunget are taking music that is black metal based to another level. I, for one appreciate this evolvement. Their new album entitled "OM" will be released on Nov,3 06. It includes 70 minutes of music and a DVD with interviews. From what I have read it is their musical pinnacle, everything they have done thus far has led them to "OM". I can't wait.

This is one of the best albums I have heard of late. Resisting easy classification, N Crugu Bradului is doom inlaid on a black metal background. Don't believe earlier reviews, the craftsmanship of this record is some of the best to hit the metal scene, from composition to recording. I first heard this album about 6 months ago and I've been playing it multiple times a day since and it's only gotten better.
