Biography

Timişoara, Romania (1995 – present)

Negură Bunget is a folk-influenced band from Timişoara, Romania. The band formed in early 1995, with Hupogrammos (guitars/vocals/keyboards) and Negru (drums). The duo’s first demo, “From Transilvanian Forests”, was recorded at Magic Sound Studio in Bucharest, November 1995, and released at the end of the same year, under the band’s original name, Wiccan Rede. The release of this demo was preceded by the band’s first live performance, in Buzau (June 1995) and was then followed by concerts all around Romania.

Once their conceptual perspective shifted towards the exploration of the universe and spirituality of their ancestors, the band’s name changed to Negură Bunget. The new approach became clearly evident on the debut album, Zîrnindu-să, released by the newly founded Romanian label Bestial Records (late 1996).

December 1998 brought Negură Bunget’s second release, Sala Molksa, a mini-album also released by Bestial Records. Sala molksa introduced the band’s third official member, Spurcatu, on guitars/bass. The 4 tracks unveil a much more straight-forward sound, complex, aggressive, atmospheric, fast - The Music of Transilvanian Spirituality. The band played in July 1999 at the Open Hell Festival in Volyne (Czech Republic).

Măiastru sfetnic is the third opus of Negură Bunget. The album was released by Bestial Records in 1999 in a special digipak format (designed and handmade by Negură Bunget). More than 56 minutes, yet only 6 epic tracks, united in haunts, evilness, descent, atmospheres, speed and aggression… displaying the band’s vision on how a black metal-based world should have looked like.

    The existence of this band past Om is a farce. Empty shell without a soul now

    Just saw them in London and they blew my mind. I was fearing some 'Curgerea muntelui' ambient rubbish for the TĂU concept tour, but they went straight for the jugular: pure, unadulterated black metal beauty.

    I'm not buying that this band suddenly went bad; they split into two good bands. Yeah, 'Om' is unassailable, but how many bands have a classic that haunts them in their back catalogue?

    Все песни как одна. странно Что музыканты уходили из группы, а не умирали. Возможно так и было, просто умалчивают. Предпочту все же атмосферик в духе Brocken Moon - 2005 - Mondfinsternis

    "a tour with rotting christ?" I can imagine that, bands sound very much alike.

    I am very eager to hear some more black metal-oriented stuff from the latest incarnation of Negura Bunget. While the ambient keyboard stuff can be great, I think it only really works when it's alongside some of their full fledged songs.
