Arcane Rain Fell is the second full-length album released by the band Draconian through Napalm Records on 24 January 2005. It was recorded and produced at Studio Underground.

The album is a concept album that details the fall of Lucifer from Heaven and the creation of Hell. The album is often cited as a classic of the doom/death genre and features slow guitar riffs, soprano vocals, keyboards/piano, violins, cellos and growling vocals. All guitars on the album were performed by Johan Ericson.

"Death, Come Near Me" is a remake of a song off of the 2002 "Dark Oceans We Cry" demo. "The Apostasy Canticle" was originally titled "The Wings of God".
