Artaius was born in 2008, aiming to merge metal and folk music. The band has always been wide open to various influences, that led its music to embrace celtic melodies, modern metal’s groovy riffs and Seventies prog rock’s vintage atmospheres.
After a self-produced EP and various gigs on stages such as Temporock (Gualtieri – RE) and Fillmore (Cortemaggiore – PC), along with famous Italian folk metal acts like Furor Gallico, Kalevala and Diabula Rasa, Artaius releases its first full-lenght for the italian label Moonlight Records in 2013.
