Serj Tankian - Imperfect Harmonies

SOAD-sångaren Serj Tankian släpper sitt andra soloalbum, Imperfect Harmonies, 7 september. Förra plattan Elect the Dead har jag lärt mig gilla mycket i efterhand och har dessutom växt ytterligare efter att jag har lyssnat på hans speciella live-skiva där han framför skivan med en symfoniorkester. Har ni missat den så finns den här.

Första smakprovet från kommande Imperfect Harmonies finns nu på Spotify och heter Left Of Center:

Soundet verkar vara mer elektroniskt och Serj själv beskriver den kommande skivan på följande sätt:

”Where 'Elect the Dead' was essentially a rock record with progressive melodic elements," Tankian says, "'Imperfect Harmonies' could be classified as rock because it is punchy with many peaks throughout, but the instrumentation is somewhat different. Though there are live drums, bass, and some guitars, the driving aspects are electronic and orchestral. It's quite unique in its sound palette. This is, in essence, music that has sat in the vat and matured to a ripe sensation and is now ready to serve."

"Imperfect Harmonies" is as powerful and musically eclectic as its predecessor. "I have been calling the music 'electro-orchestral-jazz-rock' because it has all of those aspects in prominence within the songs," Tankian says. "A few are more stripped down, but the majority of the songs have this huge wall of sound presented in a way I've never heard before. It's not common to have a song that is both electronic and orchestral since one is synthetic and the other organic, but I found a way of meshing a lot of these colors together."

  1. Intressant, högst intressant!

    Har helt missat skivan där han framför låtarna med en symfoniorkester. Lyssnar på den just nu.

    Och en kommande platta som är mer elektroniskt, låter som något jag kommer tycka om ännu mer än hans nuvarande!
