Interview: I Am The Arcane
Tell us about your latest release: the main concept; what fans should expect; what were/are your goals with it:
Our goal is to conquer the souls of our audience by blowing their minds with beautiful yet disturbing sounds that come from the dark side of existence.
Did you have a specific sound in mind when you formed the band, or did that grow and evolve as you played together?
Yes we have a sound in mind. We wanted a dark and heavy low-tuned sound, but at the same time we wanted beauty in our compositions.
We put all our influences together and spontaneously the sound of the band came out.
How does your writing process normally work out?
Usually is Daniel Magus who writes the songs and the rest of the members polish them. Daniel has a dark wicked mind!
What are your ambitions and how far do you want to push your band?
Our only ambition is to express ourselves and be able to reach as many people as possible. Be ARCANE!
What are your influences/musical references and the impact those same influences had in your sound?
They come from different places: from 80s gothic rock, 90s doom and gothic metal, 2000s American low-tuned heavy bands and a little touch of classical music. But our influences still are growing and will forever do.
What’s next for you?
Our next steps are preparing a Spanish tour, working on a European tour afterwards and recording an EP with few new fresh songs.
Greetings from the high table.
