MVD Audio and Aural Music announce the release of both Negura Bunget "Vîrstele Pamîntului" and (Sic)Monic "Somnambulist" on August 10.
Transilvanian's Negura Bunget are considered to be one of the best underground Black Metal bands in the world. They return with this new release after their stellar 'OM" album, ranked number 6 in the top 100 albums of the last decade by Terrorizer. Vîrstele Pamîntului (engl.: The Ages of the Land/Earth) is an album about embracing your destiny, about choosing and consciously assuming a way of life. The earth is where we came from and where we go back into, the one from above and beyond us. Understanding and respecting it is understanding yourself, your purpose and destiny... This is an album about places of the earth and places of the spirit, about bounds transcending worlds. In tradition, code666 release this album in a very special packaging, a 555 copies limited edition "EarthBox", as handmade woodbox roped and filled with the very earth of the place where it comes from: Transilvania.
"... an incredibly epic album, people will really love it! Sounds great, really amazing..." - Jonathan Selzer, Metal Hammer
(Sic)Monic has surpassed the traditional Metal/Hard Rock sound and forged a new blend of emotion, human experience, and trials and tribulations that make up everyday life... Drawing from influences ranging from jazz fusion to death metal or progressive rock, the band intertwine an intricate yet catchy composition of Heavy, Heady, Heavenly, and some times un-categorical sound.
"Sicmonic is heavy rock at its best" - Billboard
