Who can forget the first S&M (Symphony and Metallica) released in 1999, where the Four Horsemen performed their greatest hits with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. That first performance was conducted by Michael Kamen and was praised by critics and fans alike. There was huge demand for a second performance and it finally became a reality in 2019. Led this time by Michael Tilson Thomas, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Metallica offer a purer vision than the one Kamen chose twenty years earlier. Rather than adding on layers of brass and strings like Kamen did, Tilson Thomas truly uses the orchestra to support the Californians’ music rather than enveloping it, retaining the essence of the original pieces, which become even more intense. This is a union between two worlds and the superimposed feeling of the first S&M disappears.


The grandiloquent overture The Ecstacy of Gold (Ennio Morricone) introduces the instrumental The Call of Ktulu with an almost jubilant brilliance. Metallica also ventures into more acoustic lands (the band becoming more and more inclined to revisit their pieces in different tonalities) letting James Hetfield and the orchestra transport us into almost aerial atmospheres, like on All Within My Hands


Not just in a supporting role, the San Francisco Orchestra uses Metallica for relevant and enjoyable performances of Sergei Prokofiev’s Scythian Suite (Chuzhbog and The Dance of the Dark Spirits) and The Iron Foundry Opus 19 (Alexander Mosolov). Excellent choices that manage to grab you by the throat and convey an astonishing atmosphere. (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth, an instrumental originally composed and played by the late bassist Cliff Burton, is covered by double bassist Scott Pingel, making for a real highlight of the concert.


It’s a shame that Metallica chose to include some of their classics, which are less suited to this orchestral setting, as it would have perhaps provided a more logical and cohesive setlist. S&M 2 is surprising and moving but also a bit frustrating at times. The Four Horsemen seem determined to take their catalogue in unexpected directions and to please themselves and their audience at the same time. Who knows where the limit will be… © Maxime Archambaud/Qobuz

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

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.

Know Your Lemmy

On 24th December 2017, Lemmy Kilmister would have celebrated his 72nd birthday, and therefore more than forty years at the head of Motörhead, the noisiest rock ‘n’ roll band in history. Rapid onset cancer finally felled the one who had become an icon that many believed to be immortal, given how many times his death was announced and then refuted. Motörhead, which logically ended with him, therefore lived for four decades through all the ups, downs and misunderstandings…
