Jenks Miller's ambitions with Horseback take an intriguing turn on Half Blood, almost as if his work in other bands like Mount Moriah and elsewhere are starting to feed back into his vision of an American black metal as something always rooted in a deeper Americana to start with. It could also be due to the expansion of the band into a solid quartet, but throughout there's a feeling of mystic invocation and vocal extremity not so much crossed with a stately form of classic country-rock fusion as it is growing out of it. Its initial appearance with the opening "Mithras" can be jarring, with a slow, twisted boogie groove being the core more than Miller's now trademark rasp. By the time of "Arjuna," though, it's almost like Horseback has figured out a perfect single to represent the album, with a core snarling hook and punch, and even a much calmer spoken word moment which has the same impact as a guest verse on a top-flight hip-hop or R&B single, all the while glowering. This said, the conclusion of the album brings out those even more ambitious realms that Miller has explored in the past, thanks to a three-part effort collectively called "Hallucigenia." The first part hits with drift and flow, the rhythmic growling punctuating a looped, sweeter feeling, something more serenely reflective rather than stern; a wolf at a very secure door. "Hallucigenia II" brings in darker rumbles and echoes in place of peace, a distorted crumbling howl and a new organ piece leading into end-is-nigh drums and a simple but strong guitar line feeling like a progression to the end, while "Hallucigenia III" goes into full-on evil drone and soft tone combinations, a steady understated pulse to the finish. Assuming these are all further launching points for Miller's next moves, it all just whets the appetite for what might follow. ~ Ned Raggett

La naissance du death metal suédois

Berceau d’une quantité incalculable de groupes de metal, la Suède s’est illustrée au niveau international au début des années 90 avec l’apparition soudaine d’une scène death metal féconde et dynamique. Petit retour en arrière pour comprendre comment s’est développée cette chapelle musicale et ce qui fait son originalité.

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.
