Arktika is a band from Cologne, Germany,was founded in 2008 and got their name after the Russian icebreaker class, the Arktika-class. The band consists out of five members: Marc (vocals), Jürgen (guitars), Felix (bass), Tim (guitars) and Jürgen (drums).

This is their second release and their first full length album. Total run time is 60 minutes. Their sound can be described as post-rock, post-metal or sludge and most of their songs reach the ten-minute-mark, with some slower, really epic parts just to rock out faster and more energetic the very next second. You might could compare them to a mixture between bands like Explosions In The Sky, Mogwai, Daturah and Envy or Fall of Efrafa. Arktika sounds like a nuclear powered icebreaker.
