Het uit Atlanta afkomstige Mastodon beklom de metal ladder op de ouderwetse manier. Ze namen die blauwdruk voor succes over van Metallica. De band wist tot de verbeelding te spreken met een reeks albums die potent in hun heftigheid en meedogenloos in hun experimentatiedrang waren. Crack the Skye rond de serie rondom de vier elementen af door op “ether” te focussen, en is tegelijkertijd een verhaal over het tsaristische Rusland van weleer. De progelementen die hun weg vonden in de sound van Blood Mountain zijn hier nog verder uitgewerkt, aangevoerd door het furieuze, technische drumwerk van Bränn Dailor. Het knetterende “Divinations” volgt na het contemplatieve, ingehouden “Oblivion”, met furieuze thrash riffs en behept duellerend fretwerk. Op “Quintessence” horen we glinsterende gitaar arpeggio’s over Dailor’s actieve drums. Een dergelijk volwassen en avontuurlijk metal album als dit zullen we waarschijnlijk lange tijd niet te horen krijgen.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…
