ENTER THE MYSTERIOUS REALM OF ARKAZUM!
This week Wormwood's master of the unknown OCTOPI MILLS plunges into the hidden musical world of British project ARKAZUM. This unsung outfit is the creation of one MARK "GRIFF" GRIFFITHS, an original member of Cathedral, a one-time roadie for Carcass and former editor of "Under The Oak" fanzine. Arkazum is a difficult band to describe, which is usually a sure sign that something original is going on. They have elements of doom metal, progressive rock and even folk. The new album is entitled "Imperium" and it's a source of conversation between Griff and Octopi. Mr. Griff is quite an interesting character, as you might imagine, and you can read the intriguing chat HERE!
