'Forgotten Legends' was a stunning debut for Ukrainian pagan nationalist folk metal band Drudkh. The three epic songs that make up the album are inspired, driven, hammering pieces, with lofty inspired ideals manifesting as anger towards a world that no longer lives up to the legacy bequeathed by our ancestors.

Drudkh did even better than this on later releases such as 'Autumn Aurora' and 'Blood in Our Wells', but 'Forgotten Legends' was a deep and spirited debut, which I highly recommend to all admirers of true pagan and nationalist metal.

The booklet contains some amazing artworks, which would appeal to those who love the work of Norwegian Theodor Kittelsen, however the artworks aren't credited so I'm not sure who is responsible for them. They are charcoal on canvas works depicting themes of Loss, Pain, Solitude, Betrayal and Melancholy, and complement the music perfectly.

Being a fan of Hate Forest for sometime i discovered the side project a couple of the members were doing 'Drudkh', a it is truly quite something. Its like Hate Forest but not so intense, and its more molodic but you can still hear Hate forest within it. Its make me think of nature as a whole, fields and lakes which is very insperational. Hate Forest has split up and so this legend continues through Drudkh...

5.0 out of 5 stars Drudkh First Album is a Mini 20 Oct. 2013
By Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Drudkh's Forgotten Legends is just a legendary classical album this first LP is 39:22 long and is only four songs on this album which is quite surprising cause I figured they would put more songs into the album but since False Down and Eternal Turn of the Wheel combined is about 27 minutes long I can see why they only did four songs. There music is like the traditional black metal we all know from Norway and such its harsh on the vocals but the music is qwight different as it has more of a folkish feel than black metalish feel.

All n All a Epic Release from this band

If anyone is a fan of metal or of extreme metal like Black and Death Metal trust me you will like Drudkh and this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once You Go Black... 1 Jan. 2011
By OzzyApu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The whistle marks the break of dawn - a landmark in time's ever-continuing progression forward. Drudkh begin their journey as a mere tadpole at this stage, but their potential dwarfs their physical state. Forgotten Legends is but a debut, but its (mid-era) Burzum-tinged impressionism - not to be mistaken for Burzum worship - drifts and adapts as life intends. The hindrance of only four tracks means nothing, for the context of the content champions the goal. For listeners that expecting a black metal blitz, then go back into the woods, since this isn't the bog for that kind of thinking. These long tracks are meant as investments, even to a lifestyle if one is willing to go that far, although that's taking the message the wrong way.

Drudkh consume nature and restate it in an engrossing, developmental birth of audaciousness (this would be mastered on their next album). In Drudkh's current condition, this creates a groggy, muddy tone with hope coated in sludge and decadence. The production limits itself heavily to the guitars, which in turn play very straightforward, repetitive riffs with little extravagance except their own tuneful sorrow. These riffs display their own emotion, but always retain a buzzy, low-end sound behind the melodic forefront. Tempos never go blazingly fast or lose their foothold, showing how easy craftsmanship helps the cause no matter how undemanding it may sound. The guitars go through this raw process of a distortion - which is always heard behind the frontal guitar like some shredded vortex - enveloping the riffs in a warm, fat tone without losing its edge. Bass markups aren't hugely prevalent on their own terms, but with the music at hand it would be logical to keep it backing the rhythm. The bass accompanies the minimal, gentle temperament of the whole guitar sound to further reinforce the bleary, weighted tone, and that's as far as it will go in this bog of a setting.

The two other pieces to this jigsaw - the drums and vocals - both serve as backing roles to the bass, guitar, and overall tone. The drum mix isn't above the other instruments, but it's noticeably clear (clingy cymbals, quiet-but-juicy drum bass, bouncy snares, etc.); the playing itself is consistent, steady, Burzum-ish in some sense, and strictly rhythmic. It keeps the listener on key when changes in riffs aren't enough to value, and some of these drum patterns go from timers to very catchy beats which add another element to the fuzzy fog of guitars and bass. The vocals aren't very common, but are there to retain the dismal solitude of the situation; screams are the style, although the mix puts them under the guitars but widens them to where the charred, coarse screams fit with the emitted warmth.

Forgotten Legends rules subtly; some may get their [...] kicked by the first riff of "False Dawn," while others may not get the boot until much later. "Smell Of Rain" won't likely do anything since that's just a rainstorm (literally), but the other three do their part in creating a whirlpool of restrained, gravitational riff-ambiance that's worth your time. Check this out if you dig this sort of music and I can assure you that this is a keeper.
