Arcane Wisdom (2000-present): a Black Metal band from Lusitania, Portugal.
rcane Wisdom was the outlet of supreme and unique Metal art from Lusitânia as created by Bruna A."Ravenmoon" (guitar/tambourine/bass) in 2000 with other three brilliant musicians in the form of André V. "Sethlad" (vocals), Rui V. "Esacuriat" (vocals/classical guitar/flute/Irish whistle/song whistle/fiddle/clarinet (Portuguese version)/mouth harp/horns & bagpipes) and Daniel C. "Hammer V" (drums) recruited shortly after.
Featuring extreme avant-garde black metal structures with chaotic time signatures, Traditional Metal influences, weird electronics & loops, melodic & shredding solos, folk & medieval leanings, acoustic passages and a myriad of traditional instruments united in unconventional ways. It all came together on their debut demo CD, Of Ages Ere The Sun (2001).
Having recorded their first demo with high praise in late 2001, they returned in early 2003 with
a new opus: the 37 minute EP Relics Of Elder Might. While waiting for the best record deal proposal to appear, promotion has already started, as well as the fuss around this new work.
