Negura Bunget Om on 2LP
Originally issued in 2006, Om is the classic breakthrough fourth album from Romanian mystical avant garde/folk black metal act Negura Bunget. The well crafted effort is a concept-piece dealing with purification, part of a ritual to transform the listener into an evolved individual. Musically, the album carries the listener through a rather large palette of musical influences, from pure black metal to full on ambient tracks, keeping an even more intense flavor of Romanian traditional influence. All 12 tracks and over 60 minutes of music melt together to form one transcendent sonic brew.
