"Dromers" comprises three epic-length tracks that take the listener on a winding, windswept journey through the catacombs of ancient black metal mysticism. Like the fading rays of the sun during the change of seasons, as autumnal splendor gives way to wintry majesty, FLUISTERAARS' Dromers conjures visions both familiar and foreign, both immediate and distant. Their vision of black metal is a highly personal and deeply emotive one, at times recalling early Primordial and Agalloch as well as Autumn Aurora-era Drudkh, yet evincing an engaging personality all their own - and one, it must be said, quite special to their Netherlands homeland. The path is open before you...
"this band is one of the new pillars of the Dutch black metal. " 90/100 LORDS OF METAL
"Fluisteraars employs the time-honored tradition of repetitive, hypnotic themes to great success, revealing great skill for turning a haunting chord progression while adding in the slightest variations to maintain a slightly dynamic sensibility." 8/10 THE LAST RITES
"I’ll certainly be giving this a spin for months to come, as it is compelling enough to warrant repeated listens which in turn reveal more facets of the sound of Fluisteraars." TEETH OF THE DIVINE
Dromers by Fluisteraars is absolutely captivating – a grand masterwork from the underground unleashed by a trio of visionary musicians." 5/5 HIGHWIRE DAZE
