Nuno Lourenço Just saying that Obstacle of Affliction is spot on in his words. This is magical and mystifying. And I totally get his reference to Kauan too. I just can't stop listening to this marvelous album.

Obstacle of Affliction The album cover perfectly sums up my impression of this release. But instead of being a shaman standing before a doorway into a new dimension, I'm an inept enraptured by a foreign magical force that surrounds and mystifies me.
Dammnit, how I wish I could understand the language. Yet, the emotions within the voice and music are universal.
For me, this release ranks high along with best of Kauan. Who I also dont understand yet cherish with all my heart.

H.L. Atmospheric Romanian folk metal with black and death metal influences - I guess, this description will forever be linked to the Negura Bunget, who created a monument with their 2006 opus "Om". SUR AUSTRU is practically the follow-up band, formed after drummer Negru's death in 2017. And the style is very similar: Epic, dark and containing strong folk elements. It is easy easy to indulge in the magical atmosphere of songs like "Taina", even though "Om" will probably never be outdone. Favorite track: Taina.

about

Following the concept of their first journey Meteahna Timpurilor, released via Avantgarde Music in 2019, Sur Austru is ready to present to you its natural follow up, their latest ritual called Obârşie. The band born from the ashes of beloved Negură Bunget is once again ready to take you to a trip through the endless forests of Romania and southern Carpathia with their ritualistic blend of black metal and local folklore.

With Obârşie, Sur Austru is opening new gates and sacred structures, developing the sound of the previous album and adding more layers of sounds, beautiful voices and choirs, massive sound walls, gloomy atmospheres, epic blast-beats as well as sacred traditional instruments, all in one single concept album. Obârşie is the Romanian word representing the concepts of origin, descent and source, whether it is the source of water in the mountains or an initiation ceremony.
