Norwegian metal band Arcturus was founded in 1987 in Oslo, Norway. The band’s first line-up composed of Marius Vold (bass guitar and vocals), Steinar Sverd Johnsen (keyboards, guitar) and Hellhammer on drums. The band was founded as a black metal act under the name Mortem. Some music critics suppose that Mortem and Arcturus are two different bands with different discography, though the others tend to think that Mortem evolved into Arcturus. However, Arcturus’ style was different from Mortem’s definitely. Their music was also metal, but it featured elements from different styles including classic music, pop music, trip hop and black metal. The band has released six studio albums. The last album Sideshow Symphonies was released in 2005. The band broke up in 2007. You can download Arcturus’ last album in mp3 from our site.
