ARCKANUM - Den Förstfödde LP
ARCKANUM – the brainchild of Shamaatae – needs no special introduction, as it is on the scene since 1992, having released 9 full length albums, including this one. Shamaatae has also written many books about Pan, Anti-Cosmic Satanism, Chaos-Gnosticism etc., and each work of ARCKANUM should be seen as an audio expression of his scripture
The first 3 albums were a milestone in the scene, a mix of Swedish Black Metal along with traditional Black Metal riffs and atmospheric parts. Especially “Kostogher” and “Kampen” are ARCKANUM’s finest work! For unknown reasons, Shamaatae put his project on hold until 2008 and the comeback album Antikosmos.
“Den Förstfödde” seem to be the very last album from ARCKANUM as the project was laid to rest in 2018 in order for Shamaatae to focus solely on his authorship and spiritual ventures.
