Watch Negură Bunget’s Brand New Video ‘Schimniceste’

By on 23 February 2015


Ahead of their upcoming European tour,  Romanian black metal mavericks Negură Bunget have teamed up with Terrorizer for an exclusive premiere of the video for ‘Schimniceste’, the epic final track from their latest album ‘Tău’.

Forming as a duo back in 1995, Negură Bunget have grown into one of the most compelling forces in contemporary progressive black metal. The band’s rich, earthy sound makes use of a lot of reasonably esoteric instrumentation that isn’t often found within the confines of the genre, and their imaginative and evocative songwriting skills have been honed to perfection over the years. Perhaps the best example of this in action is the band’s 2006 masterpiece ‘Om’, a sprawling collection of heady, endlessly engaging metal that transcends genre boundaries and stands on its own two feet as a distinguished work of art.

Following a disagreement between the band’s founding members after the release of 2010′s mightily impressive ‘Măiestrit’, the original lineup parted ways, leaving drummer Negru to reassemble a new lineup and continue the band’s legacy. Wasting no time at all, the sticksman promptly put out the epic ‘Vîrstele pămîntului’ that same year, and has just finished work on new album ‘Tău’, the first of a trilogy that aims to explore and celebrate the landscape, traditions and people of the band’s native Transylvania.

‘Schimniceste’ is ‘Tău’s epic final song, and the band have prepared some suitably grandiose visuals to go alongside it. Check it out below…
