ARCHIVE / Arkona


Arkona - from Russia with love!

We are adding ARKONA to our diverse list of bands that will perform on this year's METALDAYS festival. Champions of pagan / folk metal, led by Masha „Scream“ Arkhipova, are one of the last proud defenders of folk metal, which is getting weaker day by day in the claws of commercialization. With roots firmly grounded in the heritage of metal and faithful to their patriotic Slavic soul, ARKONA is a force that not succumb to any obstacle. Make sure of this on METALDAYS festival this summer.




In the beginning of 2012, the Russian Pagan Metal sensation ARKONA celebrated its 10th anniversary with a special concert at the P!PLE Concert Hall (Moscow). Supported by numerous guests, for example a 9-piece choir, a string quartet and 2 background vocalists, the band classics were turned into real monuments. Furthermore, the interplay between typical folk instruments and the Metal foundation gives ARKONA its unique character. Once more in the center of the attention is frontlady and mastermind Masha Scream, who pushes herself and the band to the limit. "Decade of Glory" offers a brilliant journey through the musical works of ARKONA.
