Drudkh – A Furrow Cut Short Review

“Ah, Drudkh. Not too long ago (early-to-mid 2000s) in a country quite far away (the Ukraine), these pagan sons released a string of solid albums back to back, and were at one point heralded by critics to be the new kings of black metal. Then Handful of Stars happened, and while the sudden shift injected some much-needed variety into the groups’ sound, it did rub fans and critics the wrong way with its slowed drumming and shoegazing elements. Since then, the band has been playing catch-up stylistically, bringing back some faith in their diehard fans with 2012’s Eternal Turn of the Wheel. So is their newest, A Furrow Cut Short, a further extension of the olive branch?” The Ukraine is a happening place.
