Bunkur Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Renkls

3 stars Bunkur's first effort, a 65 minute drone doom piece. In terms of progression, this really has none. Slow, repetitious doom riffs that really don't distinguish themselves throughout the piece except to add to the continuous, drone based and cathartic nature of the piece. I really can't say there's much here for prog fans at all. But from a drone doom perspective, like Bunkur's follow up, it's definitely not a bad piece of work at all. The introductory few minutes may be different from what you expect, but when the main riff kicks in at 3 minutes, it continues for a solid hour, with little variation, aside from unexpected lines of feedback and drum beats. The last few minutes is a reprise of the introduction, winding down. And that's pretty much all it is. 3 stars personally, but prog wise, not there at all.

Bunkur Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Renkls

3 stars Okay, now this is unexpected. Why is drone doom metal on a progressive rock site? I guess for the same reason Orthrelm's OV is. It's a sort of all inclusive decision making thing I guess. But anyway, disregard this introductory ponder, onto the music. Progressively, this seems rather absent. Sure, if you're into prog, huge song lengths really can be seen as a risky (or admirable) venture. Here, the average prog fan isn't going to find much of interest. It's basically funeral doom, slow, heavy and transgressive. And grim. You could probably gather that from the cover art. But seeing as I don't mind this genre of music much, it's not actually a bad combination. How it fits in progressively is a bit beyond me, but in 77 minutes you'd be hoping for some progression right? Well, there is some, but it is abstract, noise or feedback, a mixture of dark texturing that borders on dark ambient. Not that it establishes a bad mood at all, in fact for what it is, it's quite alright. Slow, heavy, plodding and (honestly) a bit boring. Doom isn't renowned for being the most lively of genres anyway. So I guess I'll give it three stars, and warn traditional progressive music lovers away, because you won't find much to enjoy here I suspect, but for those that like funeral/drone doom slow and heavy, as well as partially ambient, this may be the release for you. As for why it's on Progarchives, that's a really good question...
Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
