The beginnings of ARKONA
date back to 2002, when members of local pagan community "Vyatichi", Masha "Scream" Arhipova and Alexander "Warlock" Korolyov, decided to form a band that mirrored their individual philosophy and musical tastes. ARKONA began performing live in early 2003. Many concert-goers experienced the band for the first time at the Yazycheskaya Rus Festival. The members of Arkona have already managed to make a name for themselves within the pagan metal scene that extends way beyond the borders of their native Russia. SIRENIA
was formed by Morten Veland in January 2001. SIRENIA has toured extensively in Europe, Central and South America, and Australia for over more than a decade and performed at the biggest festivals in Europe on the same billing as huge acts like; Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith and Korn, to mention a few. SIRENIA sounds like a mixture of gothic metal and rock with classical orchestrations, in addition to some elements from more extreme metal genres. Their sound have a solid base in the powerful drums and bass supported by massive rhythm guitars, dressed with atmospheric keyboards and spiced with melancholic violins and 12-string guitars. The music is at all times melodic and groovy. The vocal styles are diverse and consist of female vocals, choirs, growls, screams, clean male vocals, whispers and samples. The songs are very intense and the atmosphere changes frequently. The lyrics are based on reflections on life, death, love, hate, paranoia, anxiety and mental decline in general. Sirenia is: Morten Veland [guitars and vocals], Emmanuelle Zoldan [female vocals], Jonathan A. Perez [drums] and Jan Erik Soltvedt [guitars].
