Famous 9th strike of the obscene Black Metal band ARCKANUM from the Swedish Mora is called ''Den Förstfödde'' and has 8 songs in their luggage. Shamaatae has been active with his solo project ARCKANUM for 25 years now and has released eight studio albums as well as different Splits and EPs within this time frame. The 46 minutes of ''Den Förstfödde'' is anything but easy-listening. You have to dig through this jungle of the Swedish pampas to be rewarded with the own aesthetics of ARCKANUM, but then mastermind Shamaatae grants the listener again & again great moments of surprise. The album is a long walk & a fight to get to the core. Chunks of easily accessible rock music accuses Shamaatae of the starving pack only in small portions. These are then however real treat. The red vinyl version comes with a printed inner sleeve in their gatefold cover & is limited to 300 pieces only!
