Finnish guitarist Raoul Bjorkenheim first came to international attention with Edward Vesala's Sound & Fury band. Concurrently, he formed his own group Krakatau as an offshoot to Sound & Fury.
The well-known German ECM label signed Bjorkenheim & Krakatau [who are a quartet of guitar, sax, bass & drums on both of their ECM CDs], and released their 3rd (Volition) and 4th (Matinale) releases internationally, bringing Bjorkenheim's music to a wider audience. Since that time, Raoul's energizing, furious playing has been featured with a wide array of well known international artists, including Mats Gustavsson, Henry Kaiser, Mike Keneally, Bill Laswell, Michael Manring, Paul Sch├╝tze, Nicky Skopelitis, Jah Wobble and many others.
Apocalypso was written in 1995, & premiered in 1996 at the Helsinki Juhlaviikot Festival. It is a galvanizing & exciting work that features the massed power of 30 guitarists, 8 bassists and 4 percussionists. This version, recorded in 2000, features Raoul performing all of the parts himself in a tour-de-force of virtual ensemble playing.
