From a Fan
At risk of sounding like a douchey metal elitist, it bears being said: To really fall in love with Drudkh, you have to love their body of work as a whole and not by one, or two, or even three albums. You really have to dig the fuck in. However, for the sake of the new school of fans, A Furrow Cut Shortreally embodies the esprit de corps that all the old school fans fell in love with. The group's tenth release has everything any Drudkh fan loves, needs and deserves; it's moody, it's raw, it's atmospheric and makes you want to ride into the sunset with your babushka's horse. Flower crown and all. I'd even say Furrow tips an ever-so-slight nod to the Hate Forest sound.
Points of Interest"Cursed Sons I & II" are traditional Drudkh. I'd say the best of II begins around 5:12. Golden guitar work.
"To the Epoch of Unbowed Poets" opens with the most epic of atmospheric blast beats, and is very much my favorite track on this album, and is very much what I fell in love with Drudkh for. (clicky the linky)
What can I say? Furrows does not disappoint, and it's another happy and fitting addition to the Drudkh monolith. It does not quite stand against our star child Forgotten Legends (which isn't saying much, as it is unsurmountable perfection and hard to top), but probably stands shoulder to shoulder with our handsome Blood in Our Wells.
Luckily for us, Seasons of Mist have been super cool about uploading content on youtube, so there's no excuse not to give their ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY A LISTEN. CAUSE IT'S THERE.
