Is Drudkh any good?

They at least deserve a listen.

Forgotten Legends could have been a great album. Its melody was extremely evocative, and I independently felt a feeling of autumn in the music without ever seeing the artwork or hearing anyone say anything about it, only to find out that many also experienced the same thing. Unfortunately, each song should be about half its length. Too much repetition with no development. I'd call it a let-down.

I wonder which shouldn't Isis been reviewed here. Their music is somewhat nihilistic and their last two albums are great

Apart from being repetitive at times, I think they're a great band. It brings to mind Burzum's music with a bit more of a folky feel. I haven't heard the latest album yet.

Metal Church's self titled first album needs review. This power metal debut was well received among many black metal listeners "back in the day". Album The Dark came next and was pretty powerful itself.

lawl no.

Drudkh is good, at least in my opinion, for a post 1997 band. The melodies in Autumn Aurora are just fantastic. As someone said before, minus the artwork and titles, and you'd still definately feel an autumn vibe in the music.

Seconded Vlad Tepes and early MDB, I'm still personally wanting a Xasthur and Bethlehem review, but I doubt it will happen.

I agree completely.  It just simply does not go anywhere.  Occasionally put it on as background music but it's hard to sit through otherwise.

The excuse will be: Xasthur has too much material (quantity/quality) or has not been around long enough, or "just another bedroom black metal artist", or something.  I find his work to be very impressive though, nothing "extraordinary" but just good at evoking a mood, like Abyssic Hate/Nortt/etc...

Ah, an Abyssic Hate page would be nice

Drudkh seems to be held so highly by the modern black metal community that their popularity alone would motivate a review, even if it involves them being shit on.

And as was said, there are some positive aspects to the music, but some detrimental aspects as well. They seem to be a good example of more recent music that almost gets it right.

Autumn Aurora does have great melodies, but their use of repetition isn't nearly as effective as you would find in say, Burzum. It's as if they desired to be repetitious without an understanding of the minimalist approach. Too much repetition without subtle background variation, and the riff changes sometimes feel like they come out of left field musically, even if the atmosphere stays relatively the same. I will still give a yes vote for a review though, I think it's worth the time.

A simple sentence standing as an argument would be ok, but "lawl no" doesn't in itself make you right about anything
