Arckanum To Record New CD At Sweden's Sunlight

Swedish one-man black metal project ARCKANUM has inked a deal with Debemur Morti Productions. ARCKANUM will record its new album, "Antikosmos", at Sunlight Studio in Sweden. The recording dates have not yet been set, but ARCKANUM mastermind Shamaatae and Sunlight owner/producer Tomas Skogsberg are said to be "now scheduling."

Shamaatae previously stated about the new LP: "After huge delays of the full length 'Faunaz Samgang', ARCKANUM decided to re-write the album and re-title it to 'Antikosmos'. All the years which passed by I, Shamaatae, developed in a great amount personally and black magically, and by that ARCKANUM developed with me. And when I went through the material and concept of the lyrics I felt at once that this did not represent me or ARCKANUM anymore. So I took the initiative to re-write the lyrics, which ended up reflecting my worship of the anti-cosmic thursian powers of the Old Norse religion, and my workings of the dark runes. I have re-written about half of the music, because I felt I could improve it, so I did."

Arckanum Parts Ways With Carnal Records

Swedish one-man black metal project ARCKANUM has parted ways with Carnal Records and is currently seeking a new label home. "I have the new album already written, titled 'Antikosmos'," stated the band's mastermind Johan "Shamaatae" Lahger. "It is, of course, in the vein of the old and new ARCKANUM sound. The album has partly written material from the unreleased 'Faunaz Samgang' album, which was supposed to be released by Necropolis Records in the late '90s. I have built up the concept around the dark gods of the Norse mythology. The layout, lyrics and images will all be in its spirit."
