Not many people make the leap from heavy metal drummer to leading neo-classical composer, but Iceland's Olafur Arnold's isn't just anyone. His 2010 album "... And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness" is a critically acclaimed hit composition inspired by the Bela Tarr film "The Werckmeister Harmonies." Harmony and melody play a big role in this composition that leans more heavily on acoustic instrumentation accentuated here and there by electronic instruments. This limited edition pressing comes with an MP3 download code and poster.
