Negura Bunget Posts Year-End Message

Negura Bunget has issued the following year-end recap and announcement about upcoming activity:

"Now that we are coming to the end of 2015, it is time to take a short look at what we did this year. For the first time we passed the 100 gigs in a year limit, an accomplishment that we came close to a few times before, but never achieved it. This year we performed no less than 127 gigs, travelling over 100.000 km by van throughout the entire Europe and North America! It was a tremendous stretch in terms of endurance, planning and logistics, especially considering we worked everything out by ourselves, and we are very proud we were able to make it happen.

"We started the year with the release of our 'TAU' album in March, an album that got an overwhelming response from you, our audience, and the media, an album released in two spectacular limited editions (the 72 pages art book, and the handmade wood box).

"Shortly after we embarked on our lengthiest tour ever along Europe, with 80 dates spinning around the continent, from Greece to Sweden, Poland to UK, Denmark to Malta, Finland to France, Lithuania to Italy or Spain to Romania. We had our share of thrills along the tour, got our van broken twice, equipment stolen, members getting sick and going home, we performed in a 5 members line-up, then 4, then even 3… yet no obstacle managed to stop us. We took each provocation as a challenge, and emerged stronger than ever at the end. Overall, it was an amazing experience that we feel have been privileged to undertake and share with you. More...

Negura Bunget Releasing New Album

Prophecy Productions has announced March 3rd as the North American release date for Negura Bunget's new album, "Tau." The label comments:

"With Tau, these Romanian folk/black metal pioneers not only present the long-awaited successor to 2010's Virstele Pamintului, but also their first album for Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions with genuinely new song material.

"Tau also marks the beginning of Negura Bunget's ambitious 'Transilvanian Trilogy,' a sonic and visual tribute to the band's home country. While this first part highlights Romanian nature, parts two and three will deal with man, his traditions and practices as well as spiritual elements.

"On Tau, each of the eight songs represents a specific natural landscape with its unique atmosphere and mystique, its legends and meanings. Musically, Negura Bunget stick to their familiar range of sounds with both primal, harsh black metal elements and their meditative, folkloristic counterparts.

"Adding to their ever-wide array of instruments, Negura Bunget add a trumpet and other brass for the first time ever, all of which enhance the group's aural scope in an original way. Highlighting its distinctive character, the album boasts guest appearances by illustrious musicians such as Rune Eriksen (ex-Mayhem; guitars on 'Impodobeala Timpului') and Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ; vocals on 'Tarim Vilhovnicesc')."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Nametenie
2. Izbucul galbenei

Negura Bunget Splits With Keyboardist, Vocalist

Romania's Negura Bunget has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with keyboardist Inia Dinia and vocalist Chakravartin:

"With a sad heart we have to announce that another major chapter in the history of Negura Bunget has ended. Long time member Inia Dinia is no longer part of the band. It was her decision alone to leave Negura Bunget in pursuit of other musical and personal paths and we can't but respect her choice. We thank her for everything she put in the band over the years and hope her musical path will only grow further in the future.

"In related context singer Chakravartin is also no longer member of Negura Bunget. Different personal and musical reasons untangled our paths. We wish his good luck as well on their future endeavors! Even more changes within the band are likely to occur as well in the near future.

"As things happened a bit unexpected our plans for the immediate future, namely an EP as presentation of the new album, and a Southern European tour in April/May, are hanging in the air for the moment. We will make a decision about everything in the following days.

"This is definitely a hard moment for what remains of the band, but what does not kill you only makes you stronger. I hope we'll find within ourselves the wisdom to shape the right path for the future of Negura Bunget.

"Obviously we are now looking for some dedicate musicians to complete the line-up of the band, so if you feel you have what it takes to be part of Negura Bunget, please get in contact with us by contact@negurabunget.com."

Negura Bunget Comments On Upcoming Album

Romanian metal act Negura Bunget has checked in with the following statement about working on the new "Tau" album:

"The work on the first part of the Transilvanian Trilogy, entitled Tau is progressing well. We started the pre-production for a while, and we plan to begin recordings in our very own Negura Music studio in September.

"Naturally we teamed up with long time friend and visual artist Dan Florin Spataru / Encoil Mark for the graphical presentation of the album. As Tau is the very first new full length material we are releasing with Prophecy Productions, you can expect some spectacular productions.

"On the more complex visual side, the non-narrative movie is also progressing towards a spiritual interpretation of the Transilvanian nature, under the masterful supervision of our friend and multimedia artist Daniel Dorobantu.

"Finally, for the audio parts we are happy to announce we will team up with Mr. Mihai Neagoe / Mtz for the recording and mixing of the album. After working for years along us and other bands on tours and festivals and completing his master degree on Music and Media Technologies at Trinity College in Dublin / Ireland, he now joins us and Negura Music studios full time.

Negura Bunget Drummer Undergoing Surgery

Drummer Negru from Romanian metal act Negura Bunget has issued the following announcement about having to undergo surgery:

"Thanks a lot everybody for you all kind words and best wishes, I really appreciate it! Throughout the U.S. tour I had some discomfort with my knees, so when I checked it out after the tour I got the news that surgery is needed on both knees to fix some problems with the meniscus that probably accumulated in time.

"The first surgery is done, and seems to be successful. The second one will be done in a few weeks so that we can keep all our band schedules intact. There's no need to worry, we'll be up again in no time!"
