OM is an astounding atmospheric black metal album from the Romanian band Negură Bunget It’s a relentless beauty, from start to finish it hits you hard, blows you away, and keeps you absorbed all the while. I love the way they sing in their native tongue and mix in local styles. This leads to some classification as being folk, but it’s really just great atmosphere creation if you ask me. If you don’t mind black metal and want to venture into atmospheric metal for something different this is a great place to test the waters.
Cunoașterea Tăcută: I love the display of percussion in the song, but the highlight is what comes after the song drops down a few notches in the middle. Picking back up around the four minute mark is one of my favourite moments on the album.
Hora Soarelui: Despite the crazy intro, this is a great song to sample something smoother, a traditional sound. If you really hate the harsh sound, don’t turn it off in the beginning, it’s worth it!
Hope you enjoy!
