Drukne (formerly known as The Sons Of Dead Druids) are an atmospheric black metal band from Indiana. The lyrics on this demo are based on Nietzsche's "Thus Spoke Zarathustra", and deal primarily with Nietzsche's concept of "Overman", interpreted as a "self-created transcendence" (the spirit that drives man to achieve and to push himself beyond himself, without any metaphysical implications). Yes, I'm aware that concept was used in various kinds of far-right propaganda, and by a lot of NSBM bands, but Drukne is in no way right-wing. As for the music - yes, it's raw, and maybe some of you won't like this kind of "free improvisation black metal" (as it was tagged on last.fm), but i think it's definitely interesting, and if you have listened to the demo by TSODD, then you probably have an idea of what to expect from this one.
