10 years before, these guys made an album called Maiastru Sfetnic. Then, in 2010, they remade it and called it Maiestritt. This may be the greatest album that Romanian black metallers Negura Bunget have ever made. Layered, searingly beautiful, majestic. Not a note wasted; just brilliant.
The almost classical compositions, the heartfelt roaring (I almost don’t want to call it screaming because it never seems pathetic, if you know what I mean), the creative instrumentation and refined power of this album make me return to it time and again. Maiestritt is masterful.
