Arkona (Russian: Аркона) is a Russian pagan metal band. Their lyrics are heavily influenced by Russian folklore and Slavic mythology, and their music incorporates several traditional Russian musical instruments. The name of the band "Arkona" refers to the last pagan Slavic city-castle.
The band was founded in 2002 and have published five albums, the last one Goi, Rode, Goi! being released on October 28, 2009, one demo, one compilation and two live DVDs.
On March 11, 2010, a clip of the song "Yarilo" from Goi, Rode, Goi! was featured on the St. Patrick's Day episode of the U.S. version of the television series The Office. Three (apparently Russian) janitors walked in with the song playing while the workers were still in the office, forced to work late.
