We are proud to introduce Belgian Folk Metal act Aktarum as the new flaming combo to enter into the vast Art Gates Records family of international artists.
The band distinguished itself with their “Troll Metal” sounds and stories, combining heavy loud riffing with epic melodies. Lyrically, these 5 trolls spread the tales and stories of the village of Aktarum, sharing their will of partying with everyone.
In words of Iván Magdalena (Company’s director):
“We’re absolutely into Folk Metal and we are really thrilled about what Aktarum can bring to the table with their upcoming material. I just felt in love with them the first time they sounded through my speakers.
The future is amazing and bright for them”
In words of Aktarum:
“We are proud and excited to announce our partnership with Art Gates Records!
We are motivated more than ever to conquer the world, and Art Gates Records will be a perfect ally to do so!
Be ready, for our axes and war hammers are thirsty for blood!
The Trolls are coming and will hit you hard!”
After releasing different albums and EP’s: “Gang of Trolls” (2009) and “Ragnatroll” (2018) and sharing stages with worldwide recognized names in the scene such as Eluveitie, Korpiklaani, Equilibrium or Heidevolk, among others, Aktarum are ready for their definitive and third assault with their astonishing upcoming album. Expect fast and extreme drums, epic/clean heavy vocals and sharpened guitars, groovy bass and magical synth orchestrations. Are you ready to be trolled?
