Special Request: My Favorite Metal Band from Romania

My fiancee is asking me when in the hell I am going to get to Romania. I told her it would be a few weeks yet, but she is pushing me to do it now. She has ancestors that came to the U.S. from Romania, which is why she is interested. I'm not sure if she can trace her lineage to Vlad Tepes or not, frankly I am not sure I want to know.

Romania was easy though. There is only one band I am familiar with from the country and that is Negura Bunget. Negura Bunget plays black metal which borders on folk and pagan influences. The songs are longer with a variety of different things going on musically. It is captivating and intense without being barbarically brutal. You really have to pay attention to truly understand Negura Bunget's music, but there is something to be said for something that is truly engrossing.

  3. I've heard the name, but I have only listened to a song or two online. They sound interesting, though, so I'll have to get to them sooner or later.

  4. Patrick, read my blog on Monday and they'll be mentioned as a band you can't judge on the basis of one or two songs.
