Drudkh- Blood in our wells


Carl from Left Hand Path turned me on to this Ukrainian black metal outfit.
I haven't heard any of their other albums, but this one is really great. Melancholy, but driving, with HEAVY METAL guitar solos and a liberal amount of traditional Ukrainian folk music in the mix. I don't know, it's epic, just check it out.

1. Навь [Nav'] (2:25)
2. Борозни Богів [Furrows of Gods] (8:57)
3. Коли Пломінь Перетворюється на Попіл [When the Flame Turns to Ashes] (10:37)
4. Самітність [Solitude] (12:24)
5. Вічність [Eternity] (10:38)
6. Українська Повстанська Армія (Ukrainian Insurgent Army) (5:02)

BUZZOV*EN "Sore" (1994)


Out of print (i think?) gem on roadrunner records (really?). Dirty, sludgy drug metal with lots of samples.
EYEHATEGOD comparisons abound, but these dudes like to pick up the pace more often, play really slow pick scrapes and have more of a chaotic Unsane feel.
