Negura Bunget

Described by some as a Transylvanian metal band, Negura Bunget is one of a few Romanian bands making some headway outside their home country. Formed in 1995 initially as a duo, they have released four albums, with the album reviewed here being 2000's Maiastru Sfetnic. It's a pretty chaotic affair, featuring mid-paced, cold, cacophonous raw black metal, with rather distant typical black metal shrieks and a good ear for dissonant black melodies. The album is clearly rooted in old-school Norwegian black metal, though without the blast beats of that genre. There are occasional influences of (apparently) Romanian folklore, influences which reportedly are more developed on the followup album 'N Crugu Bradului. Negura Bunget isn't an entirely unique band, but they are a bit away from the norm, and an intriguing listen for black metal fans.
