Drudkh is one of those bands I enjoy immensely but which I often
forget about, it’s rarely the band I will randomly throw on, which is
not to say they’re not very good, but I need to be reminded of them.
Needless to say it’s been hard to not think about them in 2022. Early
in the year Season of Mist put out a beautiful three LP box of the
2019 compilation A Few Lines of Archaic Ukrainian and this fall
brought the new album All Belong to the Night, when and how they
managed to record that given everything that’s going on that part of
the world must be an interesting story. While stylistically little has
changed in the last few albums Drudkh continues with their
atmospherically tinged blackmetal production has a warmer fuller sound
than the last few ones which I thought were a bit tinny. This is a
great addition to their discography and an album which despite it’s
late release has quickly rocketed up my play count chart.
