2007’s “Estrangement” is Drudkh’s sixth full length (including the acoustic folk album) in only five years! The Tsjernobyl-radiation must have been blowing eastwards resulting in a massive growth of the productivity gene. Drudkh hardly disappoint and also this album is totally what to expect. Again a slow and über-melancholic black metal ambience blends together in 4 lengthy songs. “Solitary Endless Path” sounds a bit different, speaking in Drudkh terms. But also on “Estrangement” Ukraine’s number one strays true to their sound which cannot be a bad thing. It’s a good thing the less good EP “Anti-Urban” can be forgotten now.
