    This is awful, awful news. Imo one of the most unique bands in all of extreme metal, let alone Black Metal, to die in ashes like this. Noooooooooo! Not happy!

    Well, this happened about one week ago or so. Actually, the initial news looked like this:
    "Negura Bunget official statement

    This has to be one of the most difficult messages to be written. We are sorry to announce that Hupogrammos and Sol Faur have ended their journey along Negura Bunget. Our paths are now apart. We wish them all the best on their new endeavors (their new project will be announced at a later time).

    Meanwhile, a new Negura Bunget line-up is assembled, which will continue the path started almost 15 years ago. Rest assure, we are keen to prove there is more to be said by this band, and we will work to fulfill our spiritual endeavor relentlessly.

    All Negura Bunget scheduled plans (concerts, festivals, contracts with Aural Music/Code666 Records and Prophecy Productions/Lupus Lounge) will be completed in the new formula. New website and myspace page are developed and will soon be online.

    Negru, of behalf of Negura Bunget.

    The new official Negura Bunget line-up is:

    Corb - guitars/vocals
    Spin - guitars
    Gadinet - bass
    Inia Dinia - keyboards
    Ageru Pamanatului - vocals/pipes/percussions/xylophone
    Negru - drums/percussions

    A word from Hupogrammos and Sol Faur: We would like to thank everybody who supported and believed in Negura Bunget and invite you to follow our further musical activities."

    Then, an update, a couple of days later, from Hupogrammos and Sol's side, was the one Hubster posted. Anyhow, this issue has been debated quite a lot on a Romanian metal site. I personally don't know if it's gonna turn into another Gorgoroth history, with changed names and all, but some of the ones who posted really think Negru was the one behind this band and some actually praise the new line-up. I don't know, but either Sol Faur and Hupogrammos, or Negru and the new band will probably keep on doing music in the same style. We can't pretend it will be just the same from now on of course, but dunno, maybe it won't just end like this.

    /edit: The quote above was taken from metalhead.ro, just in case someone wants to check. :p

    we already talked about this in the black metal thread, but I'll say it again...definitely sad news. Negura Bunget wrote, in my opinion, some of the best and most spiritual black metal the world has seen in the last ten years

    I'd go as far as to say "ever". I don't think anyone has fused spirituality and metal like these guys did. Totally in a world of their own.

    Sol Faur and Hupogrammos are going to continue working together however, so hopefully we might see some more brilliant material in a year or so. How influential Negru was I don't know however. Still a shame for a band to break up like this, I had the pleasure of meeting Hupogrammos at Wacken when he was in the crowd watching Primordial :)

    i agree completely! i'd also add no other band (besides Primordial) was able to transport atmosphere and emotions in such captivating way on stage as they did

    This is a damn shame :erk: Their music is so deep and emotional, kind of like the aforementioned Priomrdial (who I would give up both testes to see live :headbang: - well, maybe not, but I imagine they put on an AWESOME live performance :))

    The debut album is my favorite, but I liked everything they've released. I'll look forward to new music from Huppogrammos and Sol Faur, and maybe Negru will release something worthwhile as well despite being a faggot.

    Good riddance. Overly long & drawn-out emotionless drone.
