Arckanum's last album, Sviga Lae, was a prime example of change in the wrong direction, and was considered an underwhelming release by many fans of the Swedish, Chaos-Gnostic black metal project. It's perfectly understandable that the colossal, lurking shadow that was ÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞ would make Shamaatae's follow-up album seem mediocre by comparison. That's not to say Helvítismyrkr feels like a full-on modernized version of Bathory's self-titled the way Ravencult's Morbid Blood does, but tracks like "Or Djupum" and "Nifldreki" are easily enough to make Joel Grind eat his heart out.
Record Shop X: Arckanum: Helvitismyrker: CD, LP, L. ARCKANUM is well established within the Black Metal underground, but has gained the attention and high critical acclaim from mainstream Metal media with its fourth full length PPPPPPPPPP (2009). No longer kept a secret within a small scene but remaining true to his roots, the Swede now unleashes the sixth ARCKANUM album Helvitismyrkr, dedicated to Hel, the Old Norse giantess and ruler of the dead in her underworld. The band was founded in 1992 by Shamaatae, who had previously played drums in CONQUEST/GROTESQUE (which were to become AT THE GATES).

The album opens with ‘Helvitt’ quickly creating a rather dissonant atmosphere before launching into a typical black metal riff and blast beat fest. Although these aspects are prominent throughout the entity of the record, these patterns are laced with melodic lines and ringing chords all adding to a down-tuned sinister sound.
