Arkona is folk metal band from Moscow, Russia. Their lyrics and music are strongly influenced by Russian folklore and Slavic mythology.
A well-known Estonian pagan/folk metal band founded in 1998.
Fiction stems from reality, so how much of it is fiction and how much of it is real? Arcane Existence crosses over the two through lyrical concepts based on fictional stories with a message relevant to real world issues. Their first album is based off a family friendly show with relatable messages (Once Upon A Time) but “The Dark Curse” focuses on the darker elements that are also seen in our non-fiction lives. Females are already underrepresented in the metal scene, Arcane Existence has a 50/50 split of female and male showing that balance is possible regardless of gender.
The new material will introduce a more developed sound as everyone becomes involved in the writing and finalizing of this sonically cohesive release. The stories will become original but not without inspiration from fantasy, fairytales, medieval times and sorcery. And of course, the essential message within the lyrics will be based off real human flaws.
