Atmospheric synth black doom metal. All the music of Garth Arum is inspired in dreams and a deep voyage towards the within.
Garth Arum states, «Garth Arum is one-man-project. I actually started to compose it 10 years ago (1997) and finished in 2003 more or less. As an anniversary I’m going to record everything again and show to the world. I have material for 4 albums, I will be editing and recording following the chronological order that I followed ten years ago».
He also states something very interesting, «Fuck music definitions. Don’t let you be tagged, bacause tags are ghettos where they want us to be».

A standard person would just change their dimension, but the most powerful being would create a new universe.
