Drudkh - Estrangement (2007)

The sixth album from these Ukraine black metallers. This mysterious band who never gives interviews or any public statements has become one of the best black metal bands in today's scene.

Estrangement is a bit too one dimentional though. It's sound is basic black metal and the music is a mix of old Norwegian black metal and melodic viking metal. That interluded with some Ukraine folk music. But there is not as much Ukraine folk music on Estrangement as I am used to from a Drudkh album. Estrangement is a bit of a step back into the deepest black metal land. Those who likes mid-era Bathory will love this album though.

This is a decent album, but nothing more. I am left disappointed.
