Track Of The Day: Serj Tankian
Next month, Serj Tankian releases his second solo studio album. And to get everyone in the mood, he’s provided the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day.
Tankian, of course, made his name with System Of A Down, one of the biggest metal bands of the last decade. When they went on hiatus in 2006, something that might end with a tour next year, the singer got working on his own album, Elect The Dead, which was put out in 07 by his own label, Serjical strike. This was followed by extensive touring, and the recording of the Elect The Dead Symphony, an orchestral version of the album, which was done with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra in New Zealand, and put out earlier this year.
Says Tankian of the new album: “Where Elect The Dead was essentially a rock record with progressive melodic elements, 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 released on September 21, two weeks later than first planned, because it’s being packaged in tree-free paper.
