Negura Bunget have their origins in the dense forests of Romania, a fact that is already established in the band's name (which approximately translates to "Misty Woods"). The group was founded in 1994 and was still called 'Wiccan Rede' when they recorded their first demo "From Transilvanian Forests." In the beginning, the triumvirate of Hupogrammos, Sol Faur, and Negru followed the path of Symphonic Black Metal. The primeval fury that marks the sound of Negura Bunget was already apparent in their earlier works and was later perfected on albums such as "'N Crugu Bradului" and "Om." The balance between archaic Black Metal, mystic folklore, and epic grandeur still is the band's trademark - not even the parting of the founding members in 2009 could change that. Since then, Hupogrammos and Sol Faur go their own musical ways with Dordeduh, while Negru has assembled a new line-up to delve into the nature-mystical and spiritual worlds of Negura Bunget.
