Well, I'll be damned... the Konspirationen organisation have organized some memorable events at Fylkingen already in 2013 (Skullflower, Bad Sector, Troum) but chances are this night will top it all:

Date: 26 Oct 2013, 19:30-01.00 (first concert ca 21.00)
Admission 80 SEK

ARKTAU EOS (FI)

Arktau Eos is a ritual ambient duo from Finland, comprised of Anti Ittna Haapapuro and Antti Litmanen. Born out of the vision of its creators in early 2005, Arktau Eos has become a sentient frame capable of capturing fleeting moments of oneiric activity, where essential gnosis manifests itself in blazing hieroglyphs... It is a ghastly and wondrous parade of cryptic images and sounds, which a given recording is a reflection of, thus becoming a new gateway for the perceptive listener.

HALO MANASH (FI)

Halo Manash is a ritual ambient project from Finland, formed in 1998, combining electronics, percussions, e-bowed guitars, bone flute and various other sounds into an intense, organic whole. Halo Manash is part of the " helixes " musical collective, and project member Antti Haapapuro is also a member of Dolorian and I.corax . Halo Manash project appeared, found his form and began to cast a shadow in the late '90s in Finland, calling himself the music of nature.

She plays electric cello and uses looping to combine atonality with rich orchestration and deft percussive sounds to produce ‘majestic soundscapes’. Her latest EP “The Pilbara” is a commissioned piece of sound art for the cultural organisation FORM, which explores the diverse landscape of the Pilbara region of Western Australia and she also writes specially commissioned pieces for music, film and theatre.

Directed especially to those who were about to travel for this from far: it seems both Arktau Eos & Halo Manash have been cancelled due to money problem and miscommunication between the groups and organiser...

So how was it..? I could imagine these projects work really well in Fylkingen's settings.

Yes, it was indeed a nice evening with unexpectedly good turnout, including quite a few metal types never before seen at this venue. Halo Manash went on first, the three members sitting on the floor, hunched over their setups: various custom-made bowed instruments and some percussion/cymbals. First it was very sparse, but they gradually built up the tension and towards the end it became pretty intense. It was all very introspective though, and I heard some people thought it was quite boring. I can agree to some extent that HM work better on the home stereo than in the live setting. Arktau Eos is something different altogether, and very much HM's opposites. Even though I suppose their performance is built around some secret ritual, they felt more accessible than HM: they're quite loud and extrovert, big gestures, members disguised in hoods, the stage area filled with various ockult props and a frequently used smoke machine. Like a shamanistic version of the Residents. This was very good, actually even better than when I saw them in Västerås the other year. The merchandise seemed to sell quite well, even though they only brought standard Aural Hypnox releases, and no special treats for the occasion as they sometimes do.
