Negura Bunget – new album development & other details

The work on the first part of the Transilvanian Trilogy, entitled Tău is progressing well. They started the pre-production for a while, and plan to begin recordings in their very own Negura MUSIC  studio in September.

Naturally they teamed up with long time friend and visual artist Dan Florin Spataru / Encoil MARK for the graphical presentation of the album. As Tău is the very first new full length material released with Prophecy Productions, you can expect some spectacular productions. On the more complex visual side, the non-narrative movie is also progressing towards a spiritual interpretation of the Transilvanian nature, under the masterful supervision of their friend and multimedia artist Daniel Dorobantu

For the audio parts Negura teamed up with Mr. Mihai Neagoe / Mtz for the recording and mixing of the album. After working for years along them and other bands on tours and festivals and completing his master degree on Music and Media Technologies at Trinity College in Dublin / Ireland, he now joins Negura and Negura MUSIC studios full time as the official, in-house sound producer & engineer.

Negură Bunget is now endorsed by US cymbal makers Saluda – custom cymbals for custom musicians and Czech Drumsticks makers Pellwood – professional drumsticks with constant weight and further endorsements will be announced soon!

Points North – new CD released on Magna Carta Records


What musical masterpiece would have resulted had Eric Johnson continued in the vein of Ah Via Musicom? What fresh prog/fusionoid hell could have been unleashed had Rush focused on nothing but “YYZ”-like instrumental anthems?

With the release of their Magna Carta Records debut record, Road Less Traveled, the Bay Area-based instrumental trio, Points North, taps into our dreams and answers these burning questions by turning our sonic fantasies into realities.

Spearheaded by guitarist Eric Barnett (a finalist in Guitar Player magazine’s Guitar Superstar competition), drummer Kevin Aiello and newest member, bassist Uriah Duffy (Whitesnake, Christina Aguilera), Points North stands on the shoulders of iconic artists The Police, Rush and Dixie Dregs, but, as the title of their debut album suggests, clearly cuts its own artistic path. Simply put, Points North is a leading light of modern instrumental guitar music, single-handedly helping to revitalize the genre through their technical prowess, superior musicality and compositional skills.

Ranging nearly every human emotion known to man, tracks on the band’s self-produced Road Less Traveled, such as “Vast Horizons“, “The Phoenix“, “The Source“, “Maiden Voyage“, “Sweet Solitude“, “Grace Under Pressure“, “Barney“, and “High Wire” speak to where the band has been as individuals (and a unit) as well as where they’re going. With themes such as rebirth and transitory emotional states, Road Less Traveled takes the listener on a kind of musical voyage.

The title, Road Less Traveled, felt like a description to us,” says Eric Barnett. “In this day and age of pop music, being in an instrumental band is, in and of itself, a statement.

With a growing fanbase and sure handle on the melodic instrumental guitar music genre, the band seems poised for greatness.

Points North was never designed to be what it is today,” says Barnett. “It was always just the three of us getting together to play music we wanted to play and have fun with it. What Magna Carta saw in us spoke volumes about what our potential might be. I have to sometimes pinch myself that I get to play this style of music to audiences.

Lupu’ Cel Rau – un proiect muzical Bogdan “Bat” Costea

“Lansat” in urma cu cateva zile, noul proiect muzical al lui Bogdan se anunta a fi unul cu potential pentru scena muzicala din Romania iar mai multe detalii puteti citi in interviul de mai jos.

Membrii trupei sunt:

Bogdan “Bat” Costea (Magica) – chitara si voce,

Cristi – bas si voce,

Marian (White Walls) – tobe.

Cand v-ati hotarat sa realizati acest proiect?

Bogdan: Revelionul ce tocmai a trecut :)) Am pus piesa pe net pe 28 februarie.

Cui i-a venit ideea sa incepeti acest nou proiect?

Bogdan: Pai de mult vroiam sa incep un proiect de fun & party in care sa cantam multe coveruri cat si piese originale simple si directe, asa ca am pus o in aplicare cooptand 2 vechi prieteni: Cristi pe bas si Marian de la WHite Walls pe tobe.

Momentan ne distram cantand coveruri la sala si scriind si cateva piese originale, urmand ca in vara sa dam si primul concert. Pana atunci, am lansat piesa “Nu-ti fie frica” pentru ca lumea sa aiba cat de cat o idee despre ce inseamna “Lupul cel Rau” din punct de vedere stilistic.

Interesanta piesa, chiar ieri am ascultat la radio un remake dupa Ziua Vrajitoarelor care se apropie de genul abordat de voi.

Bogdan: Da, mi-au spus cativa oameni ca aducem a Cargo :)) Eu totusi sper sa reusim sa ne cream un sound propriu…cat s-o putea 😉

O sa abordati doar piese romanesti sau si piese de la trupe consacrate la nivel international?

Bogdan: Orice ne face sa ne simtim bine. Deja avem cateva coveruri Megadeth, Judas si Metallica in repertoriu.

THE STONE (Ser) / INFEST (Ser) / APA SIMBETII (Ro) / SPINECRUSHER (Ro)

Vineri, 24.02.2012, incepand cu ora 20 in club Fabrica vor concerta trupele mentionate in titlu. Daca esti pasionat de zona black/death, nu trebuie sa lipsesti de la eveniment!

Primele 50 de bilete vor costa 15 lei, urmatoarele urmand sa coste 20 lei. Biletele se pot achizitiona direct in seara concertelor, la intrarea in club. Membrii Romanian Thrash Metal Club beneficiaza de reducere de 50% din pretul biletului.

THE STONE este una dintre cele mai atractive titulaturi ale scenei underground black metal din Serbia, cu o activitate de peste cincisprezece ani, timp in care au lansat cinci albume, mai multe EPuri si compilatii, respctiv un DVD intitulat sugestiv “Live Curse from the East”.

Trupa a debutat sub numele Stone to Flesh, sub care au lansat caseta demo de debut “Serbian Woods”, indelung aclamata de presa si fanii black metal si care a fost lansata ulterior atat sub forma unor materiale pe vinil, cat si ca parte a mai multor compilatii care prezinta activitatea trupei de la inceputuri si pana in prezent. Initial semnatari ai unui contract cu celebrul label german Solstitium Records, ulterior trecand in tabara Folter Records din Berlin si fiind reprezentati in Statele Unite de labelul profilat pe lansarea de produse pe vinil, Diabolist Services Cult din Washington, The Stone este una dintre cele mai active trupe balcanice in materie de concerte, ei sustinand pana in prezent sute de concerte peste tot in Europa, alaturi de trupe importante ca Negura Bunget, Inquisition sau Corpus Christi, de asemenea fiind prezenti de-a lungul timpului in cadrul mai multor festivaluri renumite din vestul Europei.

The Stone au concertat pentru prima data in Romania in anul 2003, la Timisoara, alaturi de norvegienii de la Ancient. De asemenea, cei patru membri ai trupei activeaza in paralel in cealalta trupa legendara a scenei din Serbia, May Result, cu care au concertat acum zece ani in cadrul Deva Rock Camp 2001, ulterior lansand in Romania, prin intermediul Bestial Records unul dintre vechile lor albume. Stilul trupei The Stone, raw black metal, crud si rapid, impletind anti-crestinismul declarat al trupei cu mituri slave din perioada pre-crestina, alaturi de imaginea diabolica a sarbilor, le-a adus comparatia frecventa cu Immortal. The Stone vor putea fi urmariti la lucru, in cadrul unor recitaluri de aproximativ 60 de minute, ca headliner al celor trei concerte de la sfarsitul lunii februarie 2012. www.thestonehorde.com / www.myspace.com/thestonehorde

INFEST din Belgrad activeaza de asemenea de peste zece ani pe scena underground locala din Serbia, timp in care au lansat doua materiale demo, trei albume de studio si un EP. Ultimul album “Everlasting Genocide”, produs in Hellsound Studio din Cehia, sub bagheta lui Honza Kapak de la Avenger si avandu-l ca invitat pe Thebon de la Keep of Kalessin, este o dovada certa a faptului ca Infest este una dintre cele mai atractive trupe extreme din Serbia, albumul fiind un produs credibil, amplu si puternic, destinat atat consumatorilor de thrash metal clasic, cat si celor din zona death metal, o combinatie infernala de death metal sangeros si thrash metal old school in viteza, cu un grunting gutural si feroce, totul impins spre limita brutalitatii extreme, cu texte intunecate si violente.

Desi au concertat sporadic peste tot in Europa in cadrul mai multor turnee si festivaluri de profil, Infest n-a ajuns niciodata pana acum pe scenele din Romania, astfel ca cele trei concerte din luna februarie 2012, alaturi de conationalii The Stone, constituie o premiera care cu siguranta va produce valuri de entuziasm printre fanii genului. www.myspace.com/infestserbia

In deschiderea concertului vor evolua APA SIMBETII (black / death metal) si SPINECRUSHER (old school death thrash metal), ambele din Bucuresti.
