Sophia is the other big project under the wings of Peter Bjärgö. The music has changed during the years from military rythms, classical choirs and dark ambient to a more harscher sound with punk-influences. Sophia has released 4 fullenght albums, one 10" and one 7" picturevinyl. The latest release was in both LP and CD-version.
After the limited edition LP, we can announce the enhanced CD version of Sophia's 7th opus. This CD features an additional, previously unreleased, track "Depravity" along with a video clip to accompany this track. For this album Peter Bjärgö has this time joined forces with long time friend and Arcana collaborateur Stefan Eriksson to deliver an outstanding piece of sonic grandeur. Keeping with the latest elements of the Sophia sound and bringing back some of the early martial elements with predominant drumming and the addition of commanding vocal parts, this album is definitely one step above it's predecessors and reconfirms Sophia's uniqueness. Be prepared for an intense journey!
First edition of 2000 copies come in an oversized fold out cover (A5). 11 Tracks. Running time; 41:28
This is the debut album of DVKE. It contains songs composed by silenius (my band mate from "Summoning") and me. The vocals are done by both of us, as well as with the voice of Julia Lederer (my sister) and Nora El Shamah. The music has a mystic mood with lots of spheric electronic sounds.
This album is going much more into the classical direction than the debut. Due to better equipment the sounds got better and the instruments sound more real, but also my abilities for pholyphonic tune creation increased during the time between the debug and this release. It is maybe the most classic orientated album in the history of DVKE, but not focusing on darkness so much. the vocals are done by Julia, and me this time, as Nora left the band due to lack of interest and "Silenius" focused more on "Summoning". On this album i started to use poems of Percy Bysshe Shelley.
