ARCTURUS... An unique constellation, at KRUNA Pratar in Romania
The Norwegians started out more than twenty years ago, when Death Metal and Black Metal were on top, but somehow they managed to create their own Metal style. Their approach has been followed by a limited number of bands, but the original pattern was never replicated again.
Their first material - a promo - was released back in 1990. After that came the EP "My Angel" and the single "Constellation". In 1996 they launched "Aspera Hiems Symfonia" – a cult and landmark album for the global Metal scene. Just a year after that ARCTURUS unleashes the masterpiece "La Masquerade Infernale" album created at Music For Nations, that proved to be a genius and innovative entity, conceptually and interpretational speaking. In 2002 the Norwegians released "The Sham Mirrors" – an album anticipated by lovers of Avant-garde Metal, this one being their last album with Garm on vocals. In 2005 "The Sideshow Symphonies" comes out – the last album of these incredibly talented musicians, with I.C.S. Vortex on vocals. Throughout the years compilations, splits and one DVD were also released.
The band disbanded in 2007, but at the end of 2011, the members decided it was not too late to write another chapter in the history of ARCTURUS – taking on the challenge of limited concert evenings, among which we can find the one in Romania. With Vortex, we will see performing Hellhammer, Sverd, Skoll and Knut Magne Valle.
The line-up consists of implacable musicians who also performed in top notch bands who had a say in metal history: ULVER, EMPEROR, DIMMU BORGIR, MAYHEM, THE KOVENANT, VED BUENS ENDE, WINDS, AGE OF SILENCE, BORKNAGAR, LAMENTED SOULS, IMMORTAL, SHINING, MYSTICUM…
For DonisArt, ARCTURUS was and is one of the most representative bands for the Metal genre of all times and the fact that the band is coming here represents an immense pleasure. The fact that after two years of countless simulations and scenarios, the band members finally agreed to take up the invitation made by DonisArt, makes the organization team feel very honored.
The legendary Norwegian band might represent an unique occasion for the Romanian Avant-garde music listener of all ages but also for the diehard fan.
Completely atypical for a band like ARCTURUS and at the same time, challenging, the band will be performing in the theatre hall in Reduta/Brasov, which will host KRUNA Pratar, on the evening of the 5th of May 2012, starting at 21:00.
Considering that the band is coming exclusively for this concert in Brasov, the band members will surely have time to sit down and chat with fans until the early hours of the morning, in a location destined especially for the after party. The preparations for the after party are in charge of our partner and host Next Dream Event.
The ticket price is 100 RON and can be exclusively purchased at the location on the night of the event. The reservation process starts on the date of 31st of March at KRUNA Marta or at the address
, starting the 2nd of April.
