I guess there is a new trend for ethnic metal developing. Arkan falls somewhere between Orphan Land and Myrath. The band is based out of France but is led by Foued Moukid, the former drummer of The Old Dead Tree.
Wholly appealing because of their oriental workaround on the female-fronted metal sound, France’s Arkan don’t quite have the panache of the buxom-beauty bands, but their songs are better. Definitely better.
