Arcana are one of the most known acts in the dark ambient scene of today. They often create atmosphere and fantasy beyond the world as we know it.
Le Serpent Rouge is released by the self owned label Erbus Odora and American label Projekt. On Projekt the band fit like a glove in that label.
Arcana have had a reputation about being a bit boring and monotone but Le Serpent Rouge is a step in a new direction for the band. That’s why it is such a pleasure to review this release.
Still, the band could mix it up a little bit more but this is a very cool step in the right direction.
The music is very much inspired by Dead Can Dance. A blend of dark ambient and folk music.
Le Serpent Rouge is a magical musical experience. At least sometimes!
