|ARCANA Inner Pale Sun CD Box incl. Poster. Single Copy
The last album by Arcana had the ominous title "The Last Embrace". This, however, turned out to be untrue, since Peter Pettersson now returns with a new full-length record, "Inner Pale Sun". This follows after a couple of eventful years where focus had shifted towards his other project Sophia, a period that has been crowned by the recent birth of Pettersson's daughter. The absence seems not to have had any major effect on Arcana though; the strings flow as gently as ever, the rolling drums and the sonority of the chimes accentuate the various moods spelled out by the music, while the voice of the female companion take the compositions to even more celestial spheres. This albums stands as a magnificent proof that Arcana are back in a leading position among the host of bands on the romantic/ethereal fringe of the darkwave scene.
