Profile
Arachnoïd were a short lived 70s band whose debut album marked another excellent example of French dark progressive rock. The band name refers to a membrane that surrounds the brain – thus representing the cerebral and psychedelic aspect of their music and also designates the spider family. Due to a lack of management the band grew weary and split up in June 1978.
