I went to watch Transylvanian black metal band "Negura Bunget" play on Friday night in a small venue called Cameo in Fuckface Town (previously called Williamsburg, and now the zombie epicenter of Brooklyn and NYC in general)...Despite significant sound issues, their performance was excellent. Negura is a large band and they have different sounds requiring different and surprising instruments, such as traditional Romanian flutes and bells. The vocals were very polished, ranging from traditional black metal harsh to smooth and operatic. They arrived late because of airport problems and could only play for an hour. I was home by about 12, ears slightly ringing and very, very happy. -[Obsidian Noise]Coming straight from Romania, directly to the stage in Brooklyn, Negura Bunget played Cameo on 4/20 with Haethen. The NYC show was the kick-off to their US tour that includes a stop at Maryland Death Fest.
The NYC show's lineup changed a few times. It was originally supposed to include Eclipse Eternal, Wolven Ancestry and The Way of Purity. Then Din Brad (which contains members of Negura Bunget) was added, but forced to cancel due to their late arrival at the venue that night. Pictures of both bands that played, Negura Bunget and Haethen, are below, along with all tour dates and a video of Negura Bunget.
Hellooo busy spring! Romanian black metal crew Negura Bunget will play a string of European dates with Primordial in early March, but shortly after will embark on a US tour the surrounding their appearance at Maryland Death Fest. Joining them on the trek will be Eclipse Eternal, Wolven Ancestry and The Way of Purity, and their set of dates kick off with an April 20th apeparance at Cameo. Tickets are on sale.
Negura Bunget released their last LP, Focul Viu, in 2011 and Vîrstele Pamîntului in the year prior. The band's breakout OM LP was released in 2006 via the now-defunct Enucleation Records. All tour dates, some video and the tour flyer is below.
