The droning melancholy we know Drudkh of from their previous two releases is still fully present on “The Swan Road”. Yet this one is slightly different as in a better (but still very underground) sound and bit more aggressive approach. After the tolling bells it is “Eternal Sun” bringing one of the best Drudkh efforts ever. Also the up tempo “The Price Of Freedom” shows the band on its best. Even though Drudkh are rooted deeply underground, some fans were disappointed hearing this third album. But the sorrow displayed as on “Forgotten Legends” and “Autumn Aurora” is still present at full force. “The Swan Road” its black metal is dark, raw and full of sadness…Only few can meet up to albums like this one.
