Additional notes
Formed in 1991 as an off-shoot from Mortem, which continued in parallel with Arcturus for a few years. Arcturus is therefore not the same band as Mortem with simply a new name, but rather a different project featuring the same members.

Broke up in April 2007, but reunited in 2011 and started touring again.

In September of 2011, Artisan (a blog and project run by Jens F. Ryland and Asgeir Mickelson) announced the official return of the band.
