Predating Metallica's self-titled blockbuster by 11 years, Judas Priest's British Steel was a similarly pitched landmark boasting many of the same accomplishments. It streamlined and simplified the progressive intricacies of a band fresh off of revolutionizing the entire heavy metal genre; it brought an aggressive, underground metal subgenre crashing into the mainstream (in Priest's case, the NWOBHM; in Metallica's, thrash); and it greatly expanded the possibilities for heavy metal's commercial viability as a whole. Of course, British Steel was nowhere near the sales juggernaut that Metallica was, but in catapulting Judas Priest to the status of stadium headliners, it was the first salvo fired in heavy metal's ultimate takeover of the hard rock landscape during the 1980s. Packed with strong melodic hooks, British Steel is a deliberate commercial move, forsaking the complexity of the band's early work in favor of a robust, AC/DC-flavored groove. It's a convincing transformation, as Priest prove equally adept at opening up their arrangements to let the rhythms breathe (something Iron Maiden, for all their virtues, never did master). The album is built around the classic singles "Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight," both big hits in the U.K., which openly posit Priest as a party band for the first time. But British Steel is hardly a complete break from the band's past. There are still uptempo slices of metallic mayhem bookending the album in "Rapid Fire" and "Steeler," plus effective moodier pieces in "Metal Gods" (ostensibly about gods literally made of metal, though you know full well the band wanted a nickname) and the crawling menace of "The Rage," which features arguably the best Rob Halford vocal on the album. Not everything on British Steel quite holds up today -- the British hit "United" is a simplistic (not just simplified) football-chant anthem in the unfortunate tradition of "Take on the World," while "You Don't Have to Be OId to Be Wise" wallows in the sort of "eff your parents, man!" sentiments that are currently used to market kids' breakfast cereals. These bits of blatant pandering can leave more than a whiff of unease about the band's commercial calculations, and foreshadow the temporary creative slip on the follow-up, Point of Entry. Still, on the whole, British Steel is too important an album to have its historical stature diluted by minor inconsistencies. Rather, it sealed Judas Priest's status as genre icons, and kick-started heavy metal's glory days of the 1980s. It went Top Five in the U.K. and became their first Top 40 album in the U.S., going platinum in the process and paving the way for countless imitators and innovators alike.

Sofia Coppola on Air

En su nuevo film, La seducción, Sofia Coppola cuenta de nuevo con la colaboración de Thomas Mars, cantante del grupo francés Phoenix, habitual en las películas de la realizadora. Una buena ocasión para revisitar algunos de los mejores pasajes musicales en la filmografía de la hija de Francis Ford, y en particular la banda sonora de culto de Las vírgenes suicidas, firmada por el conjunto versallés Air.

Led Zeppelin: celebrando 50 años de rock

En 2018, Led Zeppelins celebraron 50 años de su formación. Después de haber marcado la historia del rock durante doce años, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant y John Paul Jones se han vuelto a reunir varias veces, tanto en el escenario como en estudio desde la muerte del baterista John Bonham en 1980, con más o menos éxito. Se podría esperar que todos estos reencuentros de Led Zep dieran ideas para un magnífico concierto de aniversario…

Y Nirvana se cargó el rock…

Hace 32 años irrumpía Nirvana, una inesperada sacudida punk a finales del siglo XX. Carrera relámpago, éxito mundial, hordas de fans y epílogo trágico para un fenómeno planetario. El caso es que tal vez la banda de Kurt Cobain haya sido la última de la historia del rock. El último fenómeno dentro de ese género musical capaz de unir a una generación, y eso por no decir su último gran mito.
