Sophia - _Sophia_
(Cold Meat Industry, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
Fans of Arcana, take note. The new solo instrumental album by Peter Pettersson has been released into the world, and while it is a far cry from the beautifully sculpted sounds of Arcana (this is much darker), the overall feel is pretty much the same. Brandishing a real classical theme to the music, Sophia transcends from subtle soundscapes into darkened chimes of fury. And in tow with Arcana, Sophia also manages to bring forth numerous ideas into song structures with such simplicity, making them all forge together quite nicely. The production as well is impressive, with each note sounding so vivid and full of life. At times, it seems fitting to say that Sophia's music could serve as a soundtrack for a war between kingdoms during the chivalry period. The music of Sophia is an interesting departure for Pettersson, and I hope this is not just a one-off release for him, because I'm anxious to hear more.
