Drudkh - Eternal Turn of the Wheel

Drudkh is black metal band that has been around for 8 years now and they're about to release their 9th album called  "Eternal Turn of the Wheel". If you like Drudkh, you like most of their albums, because most of them have a similar basis: heavy epic walls of guitar, great drumming and unique vocals. From album to album they've always tried to change their formula up a bit though. Especially on their last full-length "Handful of Stars", which was more post rock than black metal and got a lot of "sellout" and "fuck this alcest shit" comments even from the die hard fans. The members of Drudkh probably realized they went too far on that one, so they are now going back to their roots on the new album. So I know it's going to be good old Drudkh, but I also know it will be nothing life-changing. But for some bands it seems to be really better if they stick to their roots than trying to invent something new. I like "Handful of Stars" but yeah it is definitely not as strong as standard Drudkh material. And there's still the other project with Alcest mainman Neige called "Old Silver Key" if you're into the more post-rocky stuff.
I'm really looking forward to this one, check out the details below:
  1. Eternal Circle
  2. Breath of Cold Black Soil
  3. When Gods Leave Their Emerald Halls
  4. Farewell to Autumn's Sorrowful Birds
  5. Night Woven of Snow, Winds and Grey-Haired Star

Release date: Feb 24, 2012
Leak status: Whole thing leaked, Feb 20th

UPDATE: Check out When Gods Leave Their Emerald Halls:
