    I've heard about their first gig in Norway a little while ago and I was wondering if anyone had any info on how are things now... I hope they release something, I'm really interested in hearing the new singer (as for seeing them live, small chance they do an extensive tour)...

    I have only two small video clips of that show you mentioned. Surely someone has recorded it??

    I was under the assumption that they would be a "real" band now?

    Arcturus without Garm is bad enough, but Arcturus with the guy from Spiral Architect... I have almost no doubt that they will suck now as Garm made the band.

    The music though was always composed by Sverd, so I 'll wait and see what the new line-up can do...

    Yeah, but the music played second fiddle to Garm and Simen's vocals.

    Are there going to be a new Arcturus album? If so, I hardly expect it to be even close to the masterpiece of TSM, even though Sverd is a musical genius.

    Well; as I said, I think Arcturus was at their best with Garm/trickster genius (because he completes Sverd´s great works in a unique way), although Arcturus isn´t just Garm. I mean, it can´t go completely wrong with musicians such as Hellhammer and Sverd "alone". So I´m not kidding. ;) I definitely love Arcturus´earlier works too, including Garm´s "black voice".

    My Angel is the goofiest black metal song ever, but I love it. What was it about, some Hawaiian the singer met? Haha...

    "You're my angel, I love you. You're my angel, I need you."

    Bwahhaah... Evil in love...

    No offence, but that lyric would fit a band like My Dying Bride better, wouldn´t it? ;)

    Actually, that hack from Spiral Architect sounded OK on the little video clips... I just hope he doesn't do the "estratosphere-vocals" approach with Arcturus.

    I said I thought Arcturus wouldn't be as good without Garm because the replacement is just godawful. I don't like Spiral Architect at all, and the main reason is because the vocalist. It's like Borknagar replacing Simen with Vintersorg. They instantly became one of my favorite metal bands to one of my most hated, simply because they replaced one of the best vocalists in metal with one of the worst, making it a chore to last through a single song of theirs. I burned their cd (first one I've burned instead of bought) and I listened to it once and threw it away in disgust. I am praying that the same doesn't happen to Arcturus, but I have no hope.
