Finnish Melodic Death/Black Metal Discovery Arctora signed a licensing deal with Wormholedeath for their debut album “The Storm is Over”, due for release on September the 30th, 2022.
“I wrote the album by myself during difficult times, both personally and globally. I do hope the songs bring joy to someone else who is struggling. We are extremely proud to be taken in by Wormholedeath to aid us in our journey. May the storm soon be over”, says Joel.
From the cold north, the storm arrives. Combining all genres of northern metal, Arctora will take you on a journey through a landscape of the soul. Through summer storms and raging blizzards, from the quiet woodlands to vast forests of snow. A promise of hope and the inevitable feeling of melancholy. Arctora tells stories of personal struggles with introspective and vivid lyrics, hoping to offer solace to the listener in their own troubles. The feeling of catharsis through music.
“Let not your heart be turned to stone, By all manner of earthly woes”.
