Arckanum -Fran Marder lp [brown splatter]



Product Description

2003 press on brown/black splatter vinyl with gatefold cover. Limited 500 copies

Few bands are as committed to their subject matter as Sweden’s Arckanum, whose interest in the pagan ‘old ways’ of their Viking ancestors and open worship of the God Pan transcend mere curiosity towards sheer obsession. Going so far as to compose his dark musical invocations in ancient Swedish, Arckanum’s founder, Shamaatae first broke bread with elves and trolls in 1992, but only obtained a record deal with Necropolis Records two years later on the strength of the 15-song ‘Trulen’ demo. A proper debut, 1995’s Fran Marder (meaning ‘From The Forest’) followed, and its primitive black metal orchestrations provided a fitting background to Arckanum’s eccentric lyrical musings. The first press on Necropolis records were made in 1000 copies with colour cover. The second edition that was made the same year had a black and white cover and were done in 1500 copies. The album was recorded in Abyss studios in February and features Peter Tagtgren (Hypocrisy/Pain) as the voice of the monk. 2007 re-issue on Full Moon Productions. This is a must for all Chao-Gnostic lovers
