Manowar weren't always Manowar. Their first album, 1982's Battle Hymns, hinted at the epic warriors-of-metal style they'd pursue on every subsequent record, but it also had strong hints of Kiss and other '70s hard rock acts; a few numbers even pointed to a rudimentary social consciousness with lyrics like "You were sittin' home and I got sent to Nam/I went to the big house, you just worked a job" from "Death Tone," and further references to Vietnam, albeit more cartoonish ones, in "Shell Shock." Guitarist Ross the Boss seemed inspired by Ted Nugent as much as by Judas Priest, and he injected a lot of blues into their sound; bassist Joey DeMaio and drummer Donnie Hamzik were a thunderous rhythm section; and vocalist Eric Adams was a post-Robert Plant shrieker with an extremely broad range and terrific control. With Hamzik's 2010 return to the band, three-quarters of the original lineup is back on this re-recorded version of Battle Hymns, but it's a different album. Some changes are subtle, others not so much. The track listing is the same, and the lyrics haven't changed, but the band's style is a little more ponderous; many of their recent songs have been death marches rather than groove-based rockers. The mix is different, too; Joey DeMaio's bass and Karl Logan's guitar are more or less equally loud, which actually works well. Orson Welles (who did the narration on "Dark Avenger") is long since dead, so the band hired Christopher Lee to re-record his part. Some production flourishes (a brief stereo panning of the guitar on "Death Tone," a reverb effect on the chorus of "Manowar") have been omitted from the new versions. And, most notably, the studio album's final song, "Battle Hymn," has been extended from seven minutes to nine-and-a-half. The new version also comes with two bonus live tracks, recorded in Texas in 1982, which are a fierce reminder of the time when Manowar toured the U.S. It's easy to wonder why this record was made at all -- perhaps it's a stealth strategy to earn royalties on the songs, like what Gang of Four did with 2005's Return the Gift -- but fans will enjoy it.

Les Grands Angles...
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.

Metallica, le sentier de la gloire

Avec 125 millions d’albums vendus à travers le monde, dont une trentaine de millions pour le “Black Album”, Metallica est l’un des phénomènes pop les plus inattendus des 50 dernières années. Comment un groupe de metal aux chansons structurées de manière aussi alambiquée est-il parvenu à se jucher au niveau des produits de Madonna ou Michael Jackson ? Avec de l’intuition et beaucoup de détermination. Retour aux sources du groupe de metal le plus important de l’histoire.

Alice Cooper n’évite pas le danger

Le parcours d’Alice Cooper est avant tout un cas exceptionnel de dédoublement de personnalité. Comme dans “L’Étrange Cas du docteur Jekyll et de M. 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 plus de 50 ans de carrière, on pourra 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…
