03 Feb2012commonly known by her stage name Fever Ray, is the lead vocalist of the electronic duo The Knife, formed with her brother Olof Dreijer. Andersson was previously the vocalist and guitarist of the alternative rock band Honey Is Cool. Andersson released her debut solo album under the name Fever Ray in 2009. Her vocal style is notable for both shrill and deep tones, and also the use of multitracked vocals, with different uses of pitch-shifting technology on each track, creating an intricate, mysterious effect. Many listeners mistake the deep vocals on songs by The Knife for those of her brother. Visually, Dreijer Andersson employs the use of masks, face and body paint, intricate costumes, and other theatrical elements in photo shoots, videos and live performances, during which she often performs behind a gauze screen that partially obscures her from view.

DevelopmentDevelopment Soulcalibur V has been teased about since late 2010 where Daishi Odashima, game director, tweeted that “SC is back!”. The game was officially announced May 11, 2011 at their Level Up Press Conference in Dubai. The character roster will consist of around 30 characters, half of which could be considered new characters. The game will allow the characters to fight in more than 20 stages. Project Soul released the game on January 31, 2012 in the US and February 2nd, 2012 in Japan and Europe. The development of the story mode is being done alongside developer CyberConnect2, the developer that did the .hack series as well as the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series.
PlotPlot The game takes place during the 17th century, 17 years after the events of Soulcalibur IV, with Nightmare’s death by the hands of Siegfried. The main protagonist isPatroklos and the deuteragonist is Pyrrha, son and daughter of Sophitia and Rothion Alexander and nephew and niece of Cassandra Alexandra. Although no official storyline for the game has been released so far, Patroklos’ storyline says that Pyrrha and Patroklos haven’t had an easy childhood as their mother, Sophitia, was killed by a “malfested” and their father died an untimely death from a disease. Pyrrha was abducted at a young age and remembers nothing of her childhood, including her family ties. Her brother Patroklos, on the other hand, was raised by himself and is now searching his older sister. He also searches and destroys the malfested.
