Last year’s sudden and tragic death of Negură Bunget founder and drummer, Gabriel “Negru” Mafa, left the band without any founding members. And even though the rest of the members decided to form a new band, Sur Austru, it seems like the Transilvanian Trilogy, started with Tău and Zi, will be finished. It will contain Negru’s final drum recordings and contributions from his bandmates from the latest album.
The band posted the following message and picture on Facebook:
“The 3rd and final chapter of the Transilvanian Trilogy has been completed.
After the departure of Negru and in accordance with his vision and his detailed production planning, the last album has been produced. It includes his last drum recordings and the musical contributions of his colleagues from “Zi”.
Under the sign of mystery and wonder, the last album is a statement as the Romanian philosopher Lucian Blaga said:
“I do not crush the world’s corolla of wonders
And I do not kill
with my mind the wonders
on my path.”
More information coming soon.”
