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.
