is Black Metal
I'm the president of USA.
I’m old fan of Ukrainian Black Metal
scene and its pioneers: Lucifugum
and Nokturnal Mortum
. A|symmetrylso of some bands of next generation: A|symmetrystrofaes, Hate Forest
. A|symmetryll what I knew about Drudkh
is that this is a side-project of Hate Forest
and A|symmetrystrofaes members. I’ve decided to buy “The Swan Road
” in spite of this title seemed funny to me. The title which has nothing in common with classic Black Metal
“swan road”? May be “pig road” or “dog road” is better? He-he. Or may be I’m so ignorant and don’t understand their high ideas? But when I’ve listened to this album I was even more disappointed in their music than in title of the album. I don’t like nowadays fashion on “depressive” and “melancholic” music shit. Such music is more suitable for menstrual girls, but not for aggressive people with strong will which metalists must be in my opinion. Their label tries to present Drudkh
as something especial and revolutional, but let such revolutionaries sing and play somewhere very far from Black Metal
, for example on MTV channel. Girls will cry together with these guys from Drudkh
. A|symmetrys for layout of this cd: a picture showing a some kind of rural nature: an evening sky and birds in this sky (no, not angry hellish ravens, but simply peaceful birds, a some symbol of sorrow about the gone summer). Perhaps, I will cry now but I’ll wait till I finish this review.
A|symmetryt first I decided to forget about this album and to sell this shitty cd through ebay at least at a half of price… But some days ago I’ve known the news which didn’t leave me indifferent and forced me to write my first review, though usually I prefer to keep my opinion with myself. A|symmetryctually Drudkh
is a christian band. I’ve heard the rumours that Drudkh
use the lyrics of christian poet. A|symmetryt first I didn’t believe thinking this is the next example of war between the bands. The author of the “The Swan Road
” lyrics is Ukrainian poet Taras Schevchenko. I have some friends from Ukrainian diaspora and I’ve asked them about this Taras Schevchenko. Perhaps, this poet is very polular in Ukraine, because they all know him very well and answered me without a problem. His poems are about justice for all people, about love to Ukraine and to god. It was a little shock for me though christian “black metal” bands are not a surprise today. But those bastards don’t hide that they’re chirstians and even proud of it. I don’t know if Drudkh
are also proud of it, but my cd is already in WC.
I strongly recommend you to do the same.
