EX EYE was conceived during the sessions for Colin Stetson's landmark 2016 album, Sorrow: A Reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony. Liturgy drummer Greg Fox and keyboardist Shahzad Ismaily (Ceramic Dog, Secret Chiefs 3) both played on that record, and the trio undertook discussions of forming a band that engaged black and post-metal aesthetics. Stetson reached out to his longtime friend, guitarist Toby Summerfield, and the quartet commenced playing festivals. Relapse Records heard and signed them almost on the spot. This debut four-track album embraces and challenges accepted notions about post-metal, black metal, and doom metal. Opener "Xenolith; The Anvil" commences with a crescendo of squalling tremoloed guitar, tsunami-like synth, and blastbeats before establishing an interlocking groove with Stetson's bass horn creating its main body. Fox's blasts re-emerge to carry it out, and the listener is left wondering what exactly happened over the last five minutes. "Opposition/Perihelion; The Coil" is the set's longest jam at over 12 minutes. Introduced by Stetson's alto saxophone acrobatics -- circular breathing and multiphonics -- Summerfield adds spiky riffage as Fox bridges the drum gaps between Emperor's Faust and Rashied Ali, and Ismaily weaves string-like waves on his synths. Stetson takes solo fills that add a large, bold, underscored "POST" to these metallic proceedings. A long breakdown ushers in a sinister dirge-like groove where Stetson stretches a bit and Summerfield's playing becomes the force of tension. By contrast, the slow, droning intro to "Anaitis Hymnal; The Arkose Disc" initially sounds -- and feels -- like a return to Sorrow. It's almost suffocatingly atmospheric in its black metal overtones. Fox simultaneously explodes that notion while underscoring it with violent cymbal and kick drum work. Stetson whirls around him with fat, deep register bleats and blasts as Summerfield and Ismaily register layered textural playing that increases the notions of dread and grief before Stetson starts screaming and moaning through his horn. But the tension is not released; it's ratcheted to the bursting point and explodes into the endless void of outer blackness. "Form Constant; The Grid" closes the set with urgent, muscular alto saxophone and hovering, taut synth lines. Summerfield fingerpicks tremoloed chords while Fox adds a processional dirge. All sounds meet at the margins then crash back into the center in a massive orgy of doom before the pace picks up with black metal fury, climbing synth basslines, and annihilating cymbal crashes as Summerfield and Stetson roil around one another with unhinged noisemaking akin to John Zorn's Painkiller. While the music on this self-titled offering is breathtaking in its intensity, beauty, and mystery, what's even more incomprehensible is that this quartet manages to challenge, realign, and perhaps even redefine the entire post-metal landscape in 28 short minutes. Given that, there is no excuse for every post-metal and black metal fan not to enjoy EX EYE's project. ~ Thom Jurek

Alice Cooper n’évite pas le danger

Le parcours d’Alice Cooper est avant un cas exceptionnel de dédoublement de personnalité. Comme dans “L’Étrange Cas du docteur Jekyll et de Mister Hyde”, le chanteur Vincent Furnier s’est abandonné à la domination du showman Alice Cooper. Mais de son propre aveu, celui qui parle toujours d’Alice à la troisième personne dans les interviews reste un homme tout à fait simple et normal en privé, loin de cette scène où il a multiplié excès et provocations. Tout au long de ses cinquante-quatre ans de carrière, on pourra en outre déceler une certaine schizophrénie dans ses nombreux changements de style. Si on lui attribue l’invention du shock rock, il a touché à tout, ou presque, avec plus ou moins de réussite, de la pop aux prémices du hard-rock en passant par le heavy metal, la new wave ou l’indus…

L’âge d’or du death metal américain

Sous-genre sulfureux du metal, souvent rejeté, parodié ou mal interprété, le death metal a néanmoins su conquérir le public au fil des décennies. Apparue dans les années 80, cette musique continue d’évoluer, depuis la recherche de l’ultraviolence des débuts au plus récent métissage avec d’autres genres plus mainstream. Petit retour sur ses origines, avant un second volet qui s’intéressera à la scène suédoise.

Objectif Lune : The Dark Side of the Moon

Album phare dans la discographie de Pink Floyd, “The Dark Side of the Moon” est le fruit d’une élaboration relativement lente qui remonte pratiquement à 1968. “A Saucerful of Secrets” (le morceau phare de l’album éponyme) en est, pour Nick Mason, le point de départ. Derrière, “Ummagumma” laissait s’exprimer des personnalités qu’il allait falloir amalgamer pour décrocher la timbale. Pink Floyd poursuivit sa quête du disque idéal avec “Meddle”, sur lequel le groupe accentuait sa maîtrise du travail du studio, et “Atom Heart Mother”, avant d’atteindre le nirvana avec “The Dark Side of the Moon”, dont la perfection ne s’est jamais érodée quarante-cinq ans après sa sortie.
