Negura Bunget: Tau
Romanian spiritualists ring the changes
Remarkably it’s been half a decade since Transylvanian progressive black metallers Negura Bunget released a full-length album – where does the time go, eh?
And for that matter, where did the band go? A significant shuffle in 2013 saw last remaining founder member Negru replace every single member of the band, making this the debut for some six of the group’s musicians. Given that the replaced musicians weren’t original members, it’s unsurprising that the band have shifted their sound considerably in the nine years since their career highpoint, Om, and Tau offers a further step into new territories.
