Arcturus are legend.
Unparalleled in creativity, musicianship and artistic approach since their foundation days, mastermind Steinar "Sverd" Johnsen and his cosmic crew consisting of past and present members of bands like Ulver, Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, Borknagar and Ved Buens Ende have been dancing their very own tightrope between genius and madness ever since.
With each of their releases being an interstellar journey of its own, and always ahead of their time, Arcturus can justifiably be labelled as the epitome of avant-garde metal.
Formed in 1991 as an off-shoot from Mortem, which continued in parallel with Arcturus for a few years. Arcturus is therefore not the same band as Mortem with simply a new name, but rather a different project featuring the same members.
Broke up in April 2007, but reunited in 2011 and started touring again.
In September of 2011, Artisan (a blog and project run by Jens F. Ryland and Asgeir Mickelson) announced the official return of the band.
After much speculation on the internet amongst fans, on 26th February, 2015, it was announced that Arcturus had signed a new recording contract with German record label Prophecy Productions and that they would finally release their new album "Arcturian" on May 8th.
On March 27, 2015, Arcturus released the first single from Arcturian called "The Arcturian Sign".
