Negura Bunget - Zi album review

Diverse journeys into the heart of Transylvanian lore

Traces of their black metal past burst into the bawdy lurch of Gradina Stelelor, and if Brazda Da Foc is a brief step back into more cinematic territories, the dulcimers, wooden blocks and more offer an earthiness that exchanges atmosphere for something more tactile. Zi is still a thrilling if bewilderingly diverse ride that dissipates amidst the closing Marea Cea Mare – a gorgeous, gossamer waft of guitar and female vocals that will leave you wondering where they’re headed next.
