    Negura Bunget

      The most compelling black metal comes from Scandinavia, where it erupted in the early ’90s from the lands of ice and snow that inspired it. Yet there are exceptions, and Negura Bunget (“Black Fog”), from Romania—where they know from darkness and mist-shrouded mountains—are one of them. Forming in 1995, Negura hit their stride in […]
