2 stars Straightforward Death Metal performed in fast pace. It's either for die hard fans of this genre, or it's a trap set for those who wants fine music experience. Because you're not gonna get it, this is a dog food fellow music lovers. At least it's not my album, but the one who lent it to me is probably preparing his rope to hang on. Well, this was a little bit exaggerated, but not so much.

One have to face simple fact. That this music is dull. It's one of those musical projects, where artists produce music that strikes very center of your soul, freezes your heart and leaves you punished for something. Like your sins or something. So expect that patterns here will be repeated a lot. And not only patterns, but virtually everything. Even sounds for long seconds (20-30) before moving to yet another set of patterns. No no no, this simply isn't the way how this should be done for me to appreciate it.

2(+) for dull music. You can easily bang your head against the wall and be happier than like this. Well, that's my opinion, you're free to form yours, of course.

3 stars 'Forgotten Legends' - Drudkh (5/10)

Taking the Sanskrit word for 'forest' and adopting it as their band name, one can get a sense of the sort of aesthetic that Drudkh approaches, before even hearing a second of this Ukrainian black metal act. Although the band has since moved on towards a more polished and diverse state of music, the bands now-classic debut 'Forgotten Legends' still shows a band that is not afraid to defy the conventions of a genre plagued by an unfortunate number of elite and self- entitled members. However, although a powerful piece of work in some aspects, the album finds itself too often lost in the mire of it's own repetition.

Having been often compared to the legendary sound of Burzum, Drudkh's music does bear a resemblance to the Norwegian black metal icon's, but 'Forgotten Legends' does adopt an identity of it's own. From the opening natural ambiance bursting into the fiery barrage of 'False Dawn,' Drudkh may have the fast tempo, rapsy vocal style and atmosphere that black metal is renowned for, but Drudkh makes their voice unique with a penchant for epic song lengths, hypnotic replay of ideas and sparse folk references that most other black metal acts overlook. Although there are trademark black metal snarling vocals here, it's kept pretty sparse and the majority of the music here consists of long, drawn out instrumental sections. For an album defined by great song lengths however, Drudkh makes a surprisingly heavy emphasis on the repetition of ideas, which makes out to be the music's greatest weakness.

While Drudkh's replaying of the same chord progression over and over again does achieve a sort of hypnotic effect, the bottom line is that the novelty does wear thin, leaving the listener begging for a few more musical ideas, when there are no more in store. The fact that there are only a slight handful of musical ideas in each song played obsessively in repeat can either make 'Forgotten Legends' feel a lot shorter, or much, much longer than it actually is, depending on the listener's mindset. The album's great flaw aside however, the few ideas that are present here are all very powerful and emotionally stirring, and with a much greater sense of diversity and dynamic to fall in place for this band soon after the release of 'Forgotten Legends,' Drudkh would be creating some great things.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Drudkh has now become one of the great cult metal bands. They have been since 2003, when their debut was released, and when they were already being recognized as one of the most original Black Metal bands out there. Perhaps what makes them so fascinating is the mysterious secretiveness they always applied in their works; they never give interviews, nor any lyric sheets of their songs. "Forgotten Legends" is something a Black Metal fan shouldn't miss, even though some other following Drudkh albums will be even better.

What Roman Saenko and his band did here already looks original; sure, it's Atmospheric Black Metal with Burzum as a main influence, with some Folk Metal passages, as well as Nature Recordings here and there to give more the feeling. Nothing too new here. But how the band is able to evoke concepts, such as arcane, ancient landscapes or, like the title of the album clearly implies, forgotten legends and tales of ancient lands and people, is like no other band can really do. This album is just the beginning of this great band's career, and most certainly a good start.

In a way, this is the most radical and harsh Drudkh album: four tracks, all long (two of them over ten minutes), rudimental in their structure, but extremely solid. These four tracks represent perfectly the band, even though sometimes the results aren't as satisfying as they should have been; if the opener "False Dawn", almost sixteen minutes long, is one of the best Drudkh songs ever recorded, because f it's intensity and strong emotional impact, "Eternal Turn Of The Wheel" can be very dull and unnervingly flat. Also, the strange contrast of cheerful melody and dreadful atmosphere in "Forests In Fire And Cold" isn't always working, even though, I must admit, it is most of the time. Excellent closing track however, the brief nature recording of "Smell Of Rain".

At times scary, at times hopeful and haunting, "Forgotten Legends", despite having some issues, is well worth your time.

2 stars The debut from Drudkh has both it's feet firmly planted in the Scandinavian black metal sound. Burzum springs to mind. The vocals is rasping, the guitars is tremolo picking like mad, the drums and bass is in the background. Despite of the pretty bland stagnant songs here, the germs for what ... (read more)
