Quote :
In 1993 I accepted the fact that an ordinary band line-up was too narrow for me and I decided to start a project, later named Arcana. It was based on the ideas that had been haunting me for a very long time, the ideas of creating medieval inspired music, or perhaps I should say based on the romantic image we all have about the middle ages, and doing that through a very personal point of view...
I soon realize that I needed a female companion for part of the vocals. I contacted Ida Bengtsson to tell her about my ideas and visions, she loved it and Arcana became complete.
I had, at that time, made a demonstration cassette which I gave to Roger Karmanik at Cold Meat Industry. Roger liked the music and gave us the chance to be part of a CMI-compilation. As a result, we recorded "The Song of Mourning,", the response was great, and Roger gave us a deal for two full length albums. In 1999 Ida joined me for the last time on the "...The Last Embrace" album.
In 2003 I ended my deal with CMI and started to release Arcana on my own label, Erebus odora. I also changed my surname from Pettersson to Bjärgö when I married Ia. Since then I have released a 10 year anniversery album titled "The new light" and the late 2005 release "Le serpent rouge". In 2006 we signed a deal with the German record label Kalinkaland records, and in 2008 we released the latest album Raspail. Members of Arcana has changed throughout the years, but since 2006 we are 5 members all in all

Anja is uber cool Very Happy And an amazing lyricist/vocalist and composer.

I need to make Closterkeller topic.

I want to see Arcana live but that's a no-no with my family.
