Swedish Black Metal, which doesn't differ musically from the Norwegian version, especially at the beginning of the 1990s, has always been the trademark of ARCKANUM. It's been 16 years since ARCKANUM's 5-track EP ''Kaos Svarta Mar'' was released. A single look at the artwork and track list is enough to interpret the music from Shamaatae to the underground garage Black Metal. No beauty award is given here or the black metallic version of DREAM THEATERs is sought, ''Kaos Svarta Mar'' is all about unpolished, no-frills black metal, a little bit DARKTHRONE and MAYHEM here, a hint of GORGOROTH there, and it is scarce 20 minute trip going. Now the song quintet appears as a re-release for everyone who still wants to learn true Black Metal lesson once-in-a-lifetime. The black vinyl version is limited to only 300 copies and comes with a printed innersleeve.
