There are atleast 7 bands called Arwen. 1. Progressive symphonic metal band from Spain ARWEN began in the middle of 1996 from an idea of JOSE A. GARRIDO (guitar) and LUISMA HERNANDEZ (bass) with the intention of reflect in their music a melodic metal with progressive and aggressive dyes. In 1997 NACHO RUIZ joins the band as guitarist and vocalist, later he decicated only to the vocals. In this period, a mixture of ideas from the three composers gave its fruit and there appears songs of the current setlist with certain Celtic influence.
