Arcane Wisdom (2000-2005): a Black Metal band from Lisbon, Portugal.
rcane Wisdom was the outlet of supreme and unique heavy metal art as created by Bruna A."Ravenmoon" (guitar/tambourine/bass) in 2000 with other three brilliant musicians in the form of Sethlad (Real Name: André Vasconcelos; vocals), Rui V. Esacuriat (vocals/classical guitar/flute/Irish whistle/song whistle/fiddle/clarinet (Portuguese version)/mouth harp/horns & bagpipes) and Hammer V. (Real Name: Daniel Filipe Pires Cardoso; drums) recruited shortly after.
Featuring extreme avant-garde black metal structures with chaotic time signatures, traditional heavy 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, they promoted the band heavily but to no avail as of time of writing. It is unknown if this band is still around but they are presumed gone.
