3 stars 3.5 realy

Bucium is one of the most intristing bands that emerged in my country in last decade, releasing one album since now named Voievozii in 2008 is a great well crafted, well made album in romanian scene. Combineing progressive metal with folk metal and tradintional arrangements from my lad the result is indeed as previous reviewer said a really really good stuff. The album was remix in Switzerland and has a good sound overall, better then on most romanian bands from metal a zone. They also use a lot of violins in their sound, that give them a special status in this field, sometimes they remind me of Phoenix, a more metalized one. The spirit of romanian lands, history from my country are subjects to this album well made lyricaly. The voice fits perfectly with the music , from archaic elements with folk metal atiude to a more baladesque arrangements like on Maria. A very good album towards great, the instrumental passages are excellent using violins in the overall folk metal sound was a true blast for Bucium. 3.5 stars for sure. All pieces are great not a weak moment here.

Pity they only have one album - although there is other work by them out there, this is all that's readily available. However, they manage to accomplish more in this one album than many bands do in a ca ... (read more)

4 stars Bucium's debut album, Voievozii, finally saw the light of day some eight odd years after the band's formation in 2000. But by golly, was that worth the wait. The concept upon which it was built takes us back to a period shrouded in legend about Wallachia's and, to a certain extent, Moldavia's med ... (read more)
