NEGURA BUNGET: New Album Title Revealed

October 5, 2009

NEGURA BUNGET — the Romanian band that incorporates elements of black metal, progressive metal, folk metal and dark ambient — has set "Vîrstele Pamîntului" (English translation: The Ages of the Land/Earth) as the title of its new album, tentatively due in early 2010. The group states in a press release, "'Vîrstele Pamîntului' is an album about embracing your destiny, about choosing and consciously assuming a way of life. The earth is where we came from and where go back into, the one from above and beyond us. Understanding and respecting it is understanding yourself, your purpose and destiny.

"'Vîrstele Pamîntului' is an album about places of the earth and places of the spirit, about bounds transcending worlds.

"The work on the album is scheduled to be completed on a seclusion NEGURA BUNGET will take into the wilderness of the mountains in the following weeks, to concentrate solely on the work for this album, which will be a landmark for its future evolution. There is also a very special packaging for the album in work. More details about this will be revealed soon. You can expect another handmade, natural and organic concept extending from the music through visuals and packaging."

NEGURA BUNGET recently recorded a new song for inclusion on Code666 Records' compilation "Better Undead Than Alive II". Entitled "Cumpana (Balance/Ordeal)", the track was laid down at Negura MUSIC studio and is the first composition to be written by the band's new lineup:

Corb - Guitars/Vocals
Spin - Guitars
Gadinet - Bass
Inia Dinia - Keyboards
Ageru Pamanatului - Vocals/Pipes/Percussions/Xylophone
Negru - Drums/Percussions

NEGURA BUNGET will support SATYRICON on a European tour in December. Also scheduled to appear are SHINING and DARK FORTRESS.
