Arkan

ARKAN was born in May 2005 from the meeting between Abder (former member of Dawn of Decline) and Foued (former member of The Old Dead Tree) with a common goal : to mix "Metal" in the broadest sense and oriental music, a harmonious musical journey between the south and north.

To support them, Mus and Samir (former members of Worth - Algerian band of Death Metal) and Florent (former member of Whisper-X) joined them. Quickly they release their first auto produced MCD : Burning Flesh is born. A concentrate of violence, twenty minutes of pure Death Metal Chahbi mixed and other Easter ...read more

ARKAN was born in May 2005 from the meeting between Abder (former member of Dawn of Decline) and Foued (former member of The Old Dead Tree) with a common goal : to mix "Metal" in the broadest sense and oriental music, a harmonious musical journey between the south and north.

To support them, Mus and Samir (former members of Worth - Algerian band of Death Metal) and Florent (former member of Whisper-X) joined them. Quickly they release their first auto produced MCD : Burning Flesh is born. A concentrate of violence, twenty minutes of pure Death Metal Chahbi mixed and other Eastern moods.

For several months, the band climbed on stage to promote its 1st opus with many bands (Decapitated, Dagoba, No Return, Hacride…) in various venues (Scene Bastille, La Maroquinerie, Le Batofar, The Forum…). At the same time ARKAN was preparing its first album, pushing the elements of Burning Flesh to their limits: metal riffs with Arabic moods with more aggressive parts, more exotic atmospheric climax, careful integration of oriental instruments (Oûd, Mandola, Derbouka, Bendir, Cajon, Tabla, Bouzouki), traditional oriental male and female voices.

The album "Hilal" was recorded in February 2008 at Studio Fredman and produced by Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Soilwork, Dark Tranquillity, Septic Flesh, At The Gates…). Mastered at Hansen Studio by Jacob Hansen (Hatesphere, Aborted, Volbeat…), it enjoys a sharp production, skillfully putting forward the different colors and moods of the work. In collaboration with Season Of Mist and Evil Campbell Design, the band is preparing the release of its album on june 23 2008. « hide
