Negura Bunget

Zirnindu-sa (Bestial Records)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. Negura Bunget is a Romanian black metal band, with a distinct sound. The guitar sound generally uses a fast choppy palm-muted technique throughout simple riffs, while blending with underlying keyboard chords, fast drums, and vocal chord tearing screeches. They have many characteristics that make them sound quite foreign, some of the vocal aspects, for example, as well as the uncommon non-English lyrics, and some of the instrumentation. They have an unconventional sound for a black metal band, but most of the songs sound too similar. "Zirnindu-sa" is a worthy release for their full-length debut, and conforms to no regulations. -- Lady Enslain
