 On the Arcadian Theme   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
"Et in Arcadia" is Nicolas Poussin's elegiac meditation on a Latin phrase found in Virgil's fifth eclogue that translates literally as "Even in Arcady, there am I," or "Death is even in Arcady," but has been interpreted in various ways through the ages.
In the reality of mythological Arcadia there were many terrifying dangers, the least of which was death, for its vast population of nymphs, dryads, naiads, satyrs, fauns, Cyclops and lesser gods such as Pan and occasionally Dionysus.
Arcadia is then the anarchist state inhabited by uncontrollable misfits where Pan keeps vigil over his domain, scaring away rational beings with his unearthly howls and screeches.

But what is very important is to find them ready to strike back in their best shape, ready to take out their heaviest weapons with a monolitic nu metal influenced by the most cybernetic fear factory, ready to strike at their highest pitch of composing maturity.
The sound is sometimes nervous,unsteady and schizo rythmics which alternate with surgical precision, melodic to angry parts with lots of diverse aspetcs, often inspired by the most dynamic and experimental crossover, with the addition of electronics and a very heavy riffing.

At the beginning of the XVII C it was quite common to find in pastoral painting the Latin motto "et in Arcadia ego".
Greek Arcadia was considered as the bucolic region par excellence and was symbolically adopted as such by the Academy of Arcadia, which was founded in Rome in 1690 by a group of scholars within Christina of Sweden's circle, and was located in Bosco Parrasio (Parrasio Wood), at Gianicolo's sides.

Their only album, "Et in Arcadia Ego" was recorded in the beginning of 1988, but wasn't released until now.
The 50-minute "Et in Arcadia Ego" consists of nine tracks and is an excellent album in its category, though I believe its follow-up would've been better if Zess were still in the ranks after recording this material and would have continued their creation.

Arcadia is an actual region of Greece, a series of valleys surrounded by high mountains and therefore difficult of access.

 College of Charleston: Halsey Institute Exhibition - Simon Norfolk: Et in Arcadia Ego   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The title of this body of work Et in Arcadia Ego is taken from a 1647 painting by Nicholas Poussin.
Translated literally, the phrase means “And I (=death) too (am) in Arcadia” or “I (=the person in the tomb) also used to live in Arcadia.” Historically, Arcadia is a region in ancient Greece known for primitive, yet paradise-like, characteristics of pastoral landscapes and roaming shepherds.
Later, the term “Arcadia” became used more loosely in prose as a pastoral, idyllic place, not specifically located in Greece, comparative to the idea of the “Sublime” in 18th and 19th century European paintings.

 Arcadia (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arcadia was the pop group formed in 1985 by Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor of Duran Duran, during a break in that band's schedule.
The name of the band was reportedly inspired by the Nicolas Poussin painting "Et in Arcadia ego" (also known as "The Arcadian Shepherds").
Arcadia was dissolved in late 1986 when Duran Duran re-formed with LeBon, Rhodes, and bassist John Taylor to record Notorious.

Accordingly, "I, too, have lived in Arcadia" makes sense, as Louis Marin implies, only inasmuch as it is mediated by our own ravishing of a tomb and a dead language, the Latin Et in Arcadia Ego.
This means that the inscription "I, too, have lived in Arcadia" invokes ("quotes") an original context that cannot be reproduced either in painting or in writing.
Such is the case both with Poussin’s painting "Et in Arcadia Ego" and Keats’s famous paradigm of ekphrasis, "Ode on a Grecian Urn," which involves transfer in the opposite direction: from visual to verbal art.

However, your mention of Arcadia, and especially of dying in Arcadia, immediately brings to mind the topos of ET IN ARCADIA EGO.
However, the phrasing of ET IN ARCADIA EGO does not seem to date back to antiquity or the Italian Renaissance; apparently, it is the inscription in Guercino's painting where the phrase was used for the very first time.
"Et in Arcadia Ego" probably meant "I [am] even in Arcadia" to Guercino when he put it on a pedestal with a Death's Head, and it was to be understood as the voice of Death.
