Biography

Arcana Coelestia was born in summer 2005. After a rough demo the band decided to record again the songs for a full-length album named Ubi Secreta Colunt (Where Secrets Dwell) released by Aeternitas Tenebrarum Music Foundation on winter 2006. Arcana Coelestia, also connected with Urna and Locus Mortis, propose an atmospheric doom dense of melancholy and dark feelings that fades into tragic forms to hallucinated states of mind. The concept tells about the life of the Swedish writer August Strindberg and his biographical romance "Inferno" ; His life passed from the literary glory by the fame to the pure ingenious madness where he gave up his literary prospective to accomplish the way of alchemy. In this tormented period of him he had mystical visions regarding the prophecies of his spiritual tutor Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), founded in the esoteric scripts called Arcana Coelestia. Strindberg personality today glows of a cursed aura and his works still remain closed in a limbo, like permeated from the cursed existence which tormented himself during his life.
