  Arktotus  are  a  band  from  Russia  that  plays  a  melodic  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2022  album  "Black  Veins"  which  will  be  released  on  April  29th  by  Kult  und  Kaos  Productions.

  Synths  and  classical  guitars  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  and  melodic  musical  direction.  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  decent  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  while  the  vocals  are  a  mixture  of  black  metal  screams  and  death  metal  growls  and  the  songs  are  also  heavily  rooted  in  the  Swedish  style.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style.  Synths  also  make  a  return  on  one  of  the  later  tracks  along  with  a  couple  of  tracks  are  also  introducing  acoustic  guitars  into  the  music  and  when  spoken  word  parts  are  utilized  they  also  give  the  music  more  of  a  ritualistic  feeling.    

  Arktotus  plays  a  musical  style  that  goes  back  to  the  classic  and  melodic  era  of  Swedish  black  and  death  metal.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Evil,  Darkness,  Hatred  and  Satanism  themes

  In  my  opinion  Arktotus  are  a  very  great  sounding  melodic  mixture  of  black  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Plague"  "Your  Dictator"  and  "Wind  of  Death".  8  out  of  10. - ADifferentShadeOfBlackMetalZine

ARKTOTUS was created in 2006 by Cimeries as a one-man project. In early 2007 a full line-up was recruited. This is how the team formed their unique Melodic Black Death Metal style. In these 16 years, ARKTOTUS has shared the stage with a lot of bands in more than 1000 concerts.
