On other news, DRUDKH have had their 2006 full-length 'Blood in Our Wells' chosen as one of the black metal genre's 50 best records of all time by Decibel. The album appears in the US magazine’s new special issue focusing on the "Top 100 Black Metal Albums Of All Time". About the album, Decibel commented: “It's (DRUDKH's) tacking on of distinctive gothic doom ["Solitude"], heavy metal ["When the Flame Turns to Ashes"] and classic rock ["Furrows of Gods"] sensibilities to their Ukrainian Folk black metal base that saw them take a massive step forward and set the stage for a future wealth of awesome output”.
