As a rule within the Black Metal scene many followers always consider any band's first album to be the best. This also applies to DRUDKH as they created their trademark Slavonic Pagan Metal sound with Forgotten Legends, which embraces epic folk-influenced melodies and creates cinematic and luxuriant atmospheres charged with melancholy. To this day the three epic tracks and one outro are regarded as one of the highlights of the Pagan Black Metal genre.
This is an awesome debut record which is highly recommended not only to fans of obscure underground material but also those who look for emotional, raw and violent music devoid of keyboards and acoustic sections somewhere in between black, Pagan and Viking metal. - Chronicles of Chaos5/5
