Eclipse Music proudly presents Raoul Björkenheim Triad and their new CD Beyond. Björkenheim is a great presence is the finnish music scene and has made quite a career both in Europe and North America. With his rhythm section Ilmari Heikinheimo (drums) and Ville Rauhala (bass) the trio delivers a stand-out piece with Beyond.
Raoul Björkenheim is a familiar name in the jazz/experimental scene with his fiery guitar playing rooting back to early 80`s. He is best known for multiple bands including Krakatau, Scorch Trio, Ecstasy and the duo Heim(o), also with Heikinheimo on drums. Triad however makes everything bigger, bolder and more experimental. A "spectacular mayhem" of sounds. Ilmari Heikinheimo a is widely recognized drummer collaborating with many household names in the finnish music scene. Ville Rauhala has performed professionally since 90`s (with Black Motor and many other groups) and his bass playing has a unique touch of soloist and structural elements. Beyond is a strong statement from Triad, a unique musical journey into sounds and textures, bold and raw.
