Arckanum is a one-man Swedish black metal band formed in in 1992. Although, for the most part Arckanum has remained Shamaatae's solo project, in 1993 Loke Svarteld was the guitar for the band, and Sataros the vocalist, though this quickly changed the same year. To this date, besides a number of demos, splits and EPs, Arckanum has released eight full-length albums. Note: Arckanum is NOT a "pagan" black metal band. Shamaatae is a practising Chaos-Gnostic (see the "Gnosis" article on Arckanum website).
