Awesome really atmospheric Black Metal from Sweden. I know there are some fans of them here so I was pretty surprised there wasn't already a thread. Anyway, has anyone heard Antikosmos yet?

Yeah, his staff is truly the epitome of badassery. Gamall Uvermark is one of the most atmospheric songs I've ever heard, the Violin on it is amazing.

*Obligatory jerkness* I take full credit for the fans of Arckanum on this website.

Anyways, Antikosmos is killer. Near Death Metal production on Shamaatae's work is brilliant and adds to the music very well. Captivating melodies, some of the most Black Metal vocals of all time, along with the "foresty" drumming and just about everything else is amazing as always.

I completely agree with this.

Even though I only have Kostogher, Arckanum is one of my favorite black metal bands because of it.

Gnostic beliefs, to simplify it alot, that humans are divine souls trapped in a material world that was created by an imperfect god. Certain humans escape this trap and reach a point of extreme enlightenment and are able to learn and see things for how they truly are.

Compare it to early Shamanism. The spiritual leader of certain tribes is so because he has unlocked all secrets. He has reached a point of knowing and understanding.

Also, I should add, the "Chaos" part that Shamaatae is referring to is simply how he shows his near worship of the widely known figure, Pan.

Oh, I didn't know that, that actually makes Arckanum even more awesome. And I'm definitely gonna try to pick up Antikosmos when I get the chance.

That's really interesting. And the music is ****ing GREAT. Awesome stuff.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Shamaatae is very serious about his worship. Him and his brothers regularly traverse through large forest chanting, climb to mountain tops at certain celestial peaks, and other ritualistic goodies. Like making the staff of his.

Extreme nature walk.

Can't claim me as I had heard of Arckanum many years before I knew this site existed.

On another note. The myspace link says "nummy". I cracked up... perhaps I just had too many beers.

It was said in jest.

I've been a huge fan of Arckanum for a long time. Even owning physical CD's, which is a little tough for everything before Antikosmos.

I was actually fairly surprised this project was unknown in the Black Metal forum when you brought it up.

I reckon their best is Kostogher, but you can't really go wrong, all their stuff is great.

This applies applies to me, not to mention A Forest of Stars, as well.

Kostogher is good, damn good. But I believe that's already been established...

Great band.

DESPITE all the pseudo-pagan/philosophical nonsense. I just despise all supernatural beliefs and religions.

Great music though.

That sounded eerily similar to the matrix .

A friend of mine linked me this band early last month, some very savage stuff. I have Antikosmos as of now. Any recommendations for a second album? I've heard very positive things about Kostogher, is that worth checking out?

I love it when bands use the musics "native" language sort to speak. Sounds so much more organic.
Kind of how cheesy asian martial arts movies should never use dubbing.

Yeah, it does. The only upside of martial arts movies overdubbing is that it often turns them into comedies.

Thought I'd let all of you know that Shamaatae is writing a book and will be releasing it through Ixaxaar publishing. Ixaxaar are pretty horrible at advertisement and can be pretty childish, so I will let you know if the book is good once it is released.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

Your best bet would be to try something off of Kostogher or Antikosmos if you want to see what both ends of the spectrum have to offer.

To be honest, what seems to get people to click with Arckanum around here is to just try the entire Kostogher album.

If you insist on trying out one song, try Oþer Trulhøyghda.

PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP is out and it's pretty damn good. Production is nice and roomy and the riffing maintains the same quality as the last album. Drumming is as intense and precise as ever. Vocals are missing something however. The solos were surprisingly good.
