Drudkh - A Furrow Cut Short 2-LP (Black vinyl)
3rd press 300 copies limited.
In Drudkh terms three years is a long time to wait between albums (though maybe we can forgive them, having released a split with Winterfylleth last year.) And for the Ukrainian nationalists, a lot has happened in their country in the intervening years between Eternal Turn of the Wheel and A Furrow Cut Short with the Crimean crisis and the ongoing civil unrest. It’s not out of the realms of possibility then to see their slight change in style as being influenced by current events – their tenth album in addition to being their longest at almost an hour is their most aggressive to date – aggressive but as always atmospheric and beautiful.
