Drudkh - Autumn Aurora (2004)

Not grotesque, singular, or ideological enough for open-minded hipsters or metal elitists, Drudkh's Autumn Aurora merges guitar, synth, and shriek together with something subtler: grace. Their folkish origins manage to humble the band into steering clear of the ideologies of their influences, and have Drudkh celebrating the natural in its strength (Summoning) and forgiveness (Sunwheel). This complacency would remain with the band for the underrated follow-up The Swan Road, but unfortunately leave as Drudkh looked to history for the heartwrenching aggression of their epic Blood in Our Wells
