Biography

One of the best characteristics of the black metal genre is its versatility. There’s lots of room for experimentation and few do it with more gusto than the Norwegian outfit Arcturus. Consisting of both past and present members of Mayhem, Ved Buens Ende, Dimmu Borgir and Borknagar, Arcturus unsurprisingly take an avant-garde approach to music. Add in their cosmic lyrics and the fact that ICS Vortex is one the most versatile extreme metal vocalists around and you’ll understand why this is one to look forward to. Despite their black metal roots, Arcturus appeal to fans of unpredictable music worldwide. ‘Arcturian’, their recently released and critically acclaimed first album in a decade, just sweetens the deal!
