Serj Tankian writes music to epic blockbuster Furious

Famous American musician Serj Tankian, the leader of the legendary group System of a Down, joined the film project Furious as a composer.It is his first cooperation for production of a Russian movie.

Furious is an incredible historical epic battle film that I started working on several months ago. For years I contemplated to compose for a film with epic musical proportions utilizing big orchestral, crazy rock and moving ethnic elements. In that sense, my dreams came true. I am extremely proud of my work on this film", said Tankian.

6 musical themes were created for Furious, including several electronic music sections. System of a Down will record instrumental parts.

Dzhanik Fayziev, film director and producer, commented, "Serj Tankian is probably the only musician in the world who can combine modern rhythms and ultimatum tenderness in his work. He wrote an original soundtrack to the film that can rightfully be placed on par with the best samples of world cinema music."

“We are proud that a world-class musician agreed to work on our film. It is a great pleasure to work with Serj. I am certain that our cooperation will last longer than this movie and hope that there many joint projects ahead”, said general director of GPM KIT Rafael Minasbekyan.

The music will be completed by the end of this summer.

The film Furious, the production of Central Partnership and Film Studio KIT, will be released on November 30, 2017. The film will be released in 10 countries including the USA, Germany, France. In the USA, Furious will be released by Well Go USA.
