Drudkh Estrangement on LP
Originally released in 2007, Estrangement saw the Ukrainians return to their harsh black metal sound including blast beats, after the heavily Folklore inspired and partly acoustic Songs of Grief and Solitude (2006). With its clear and dark songwriting the band created an album that could nearly be called catchy, considering the genre, and even features some haunting solos. The lyrics on Estrangement are entirely derived from the words of the Ukrainian poet Oleh Olzhych. When it's all said and done, Estrangement stands tall as a solid masterpiece of atmospheric black metal!
