The group was founded in the autumn of 1992, in Timisoara (Romania). The first album, called “Catehism”, was released in January 1994. The lyrics were influenced by the Romanian “damned” poet George Bacovia. After a few changes in the lineup, Arc Gotic began in 1996 the work on a new album, “Decadent”, which was recorded in the winter of 1997 and released in June 1998. This was the first title of a new underground label from Timisoara - Htonian Records.
