Sound and Fury is a deep, raw, tender and imaginative 9-piece band from Finland , digging deep into Finnish soul & nature and making it a universal search into human being and for freedom.
We play the music of the late great Finnish composer/drummer Edward Vesala (arr.by Iro Haarla),Iro Haarla and our own compositions.
The compositions have a great variety from great rolling , wild, energy outbursts to complex textures and touching ballads. Melody is the key factor - every piece has it´s own harmony and own journey into imagination.You can hear some distant echos from various folk, primitive, classical and jazzmusic but the overall sound is uniquely own.
The band has a wide variety of colours with saxes, clarinets, trumpet , flutes and 2 wild guitars.
We made in november 2013 a an album "Pulsacion " (Ektrorecords) consisting never before recorded compositions by Vesala. On "Pulsacion" is Ilmari Heikinheimo on drums.
At spring 2017 we recorded some unrecorded compositions from Edward Vesala, two new tunes by Iro Haarla and one by Jorma Tapio.The new record "Thundering of Dawn" was released in 6.5.2018.
