4 stars "Poarta de Dincolo" is a 4 track, 28:35 minutes long EP release by Romanian black metal act Negura Bunget. The EP was released in April 2011 by code666. There's been a couple of lineup changes since "V'rstele Pam'ntului (2010)" as guitarists Spin and Corb have left Negura Bunget to focus on their own act Syn Ze Sase Tri (who released their debut full-length studio album "'ntre Doua Lumi" in early 2011). They are replaced here by Fulmineos (guitars, vocals) and Urzit (guitars).

The music on "Poarta de Dincolo" is atmospheric black metal with ethnic folky elements and instrumentation. The vocals are raw, raspy and almost shouting desperate. The tempo is mostly slow or mid-paced. There's a an earthy and organic atmosphere to the music but also an epic edge created by keyboards. The sound production is equally earthy and organic and make the whole concept work well.

Personally I think that "Poarta de Dincolo" is a step up from "V'rstele Pam'ntului" both in terms of production but also because "Poarta de Dincolo" features less of those almost new age like elements that mared parts of "V'rstele Pam'ntului". It's a quality release this one and therefore fully deserves a 3.5 - 4 star rating.

UMUR | 4/5 |
