Alamaailman Vasarat ("Hammers of the Underworld") is a cult
avant-gardeFinnish group. Their music covers a wide range of styles and influences and is therefore difficult to classify; on their official website they jokingly refer to their style as being "kebab-kosher-jazz-film-traffic-punk-music." Much of their music is reminiscent of klezmer music.
Alamaailman Vasarat is an off-shoot of
Höyry-Konecreated by drummer Teemu Hänninen and Jarno Sarkula, who played bass guitarearlier and start with soprano saxophone. The popularity of the band was partially ignited by the television presence of Jarno Sarkulaon the now defunct MoonTVcable-channel which also aired the band's music videos from their debut album "Vasaraasia".
The debut album "Vasaraasia" hit "Europe Top-20" chart, peaking at position #7.
Alamaailman Vasarat also has composed and performed film music: most recently for an award-winning animated movie called “
Elukka” by Tatu Pohjavirta and for a forthcoming full-length movie about a Finnish painter Kalervo Palsaby Pekka Lehto.
