Cult Of Parthenope is proud to bring Negură Bunget’s ex-members new band Sur Austru (Romania) to the United Kingdom for the first time for an exclusive show at Cosmic Void Festival 2020.

Sur Austru is a new musical concept created from the ashes of Transylvanian black metal pioneers Negura Bunget. Gathering inspiration and emotions from the aesthetics of nature, ancient lore and forgotten rituals, Sur Austru is proposing a timeless journey into the mystical landscapes of Transylvania.

Negura Bunget ended with Negru’s passing, the only original founding member left in that band. The other members left had something else in their mind and decided to continue Negura Bunget’s musical legacy. Due to this thing, Sur Austru was born in 2018. The musical style and values are the same as Negura Bunget and that was the whole purpose from the beginning. Until now, Sur Austru had a series of live performances. They made their appearence at Rockstadt Extreme Fest in 2018. The band didn’t stop just at romanian gigs, they also performed in european countries such as Germany, Italy or Slovakia.

In 2019 Sur Austru released of the first album called “Meteahna Timpurilor” (Weakness of The Times) under the Avantgarde Records from Italy. This label is known for bands such as Suicide Forest, Abigor or Funeral Winds.
