Avant-garde black metallers  Arcturus have released a 14-minute long trailer of some of the best bits of new album Arcturian, out 11 May on Prophecy Productions. You can pre-order ‘Arcturian’ in various formats here.

Arcturus250‘Arcturian’ is the band’s first studio album in ten years. Guitarist Knut Magne Valle says on the album: “‘Arcturian’ contains elements from Arcturus’s entire history and as a result it is both harder and softer than ever before. We went back to real drums, real strings and ‘first take’ improvised guitar solos to give it an authenticity and life that not many records tend to have these days. We worked hard to mix the old Arcturus sound into the newer material and the result was: We obtained a more homogeneous, mystic Arcturus sound picture.”

The band are touring Europe in early May and late June and play The Done in Tufnell Park, London on 7 May.
