The stalwart British rockers' sixth full-length effort, Like a House on Fire sees Asking Alexandria continuing to distance themselves from the screamo/metalcore scene in which they were forged. While much of the uncompromising heaviness remains, that aggression is tempered by a willingness to measure the sonic possibilities of melody with a much longer yardstick than in the past. Bursting at the seams with 15 tracks, Like a House on Fire could have benefitted from some pruning, since it's as protracted as it is sonically and stylistically diverse. Commencing with the titular cut, a stadium-filling anti-anthem that effectively imbues the group's trademark power and melodic angst with a radio-ready modern rock sheen, the LP cycles through a multitude of genres before coming to rest on the sugary and sleazy electro-pop closer "Lorazepam." A predilection towards electronics has always been in the band's wheelhouse, but Like a House on Fire is positively voltaic, with every palm-muted riff and beefy breakdown being carried along by a cavalcade of loops, programmed beats, and moody synth pads. Pizzicato digital string plucks accompany the verses of the otherwise hulking "One Turns to None," opaque tendrils of contemporary R&B weave themselves into "It's Not Me (It's You)" and "Here's to Starting Over," and token power ballad "I Don't Need You" -- a duet with social media star Grace Grundy -- even flirts with modern country. Still, there are plenty of muscular and grandiose moments to be found here, many of which ("Down to Hell," "Antisocialist, The Violence") retain the scope and seismic heft of the group's earlier works. That said, no longer wading into the mainstream, Asking Alexandria have officially gone swimming, and it'll be up to longtime fans to decide whether or not the water is fine or not.

Diabolus in musica – 50 ans de Black Sabbath

A l’automne 1969, quatre jeunes de Birmingham s’entassent dans un studio de Londres pour ce qui ressemble à leur dernière chance de faire carrière dans la musique. Ils ont 24 heures pour enregistrer et faire basculer leur destin. Ils en ressortiront avec “Black Sabbath”, premier album du combo du même nom mené par Ozzy Osbourne et le guitariste Tony Iommi, qui convertira toute une génération au heavy metal. Retour sur une révolution sonique.

Le paradoxe du studio d’Esa-Pekka Salonen

Le Finlandais Esa-Pekka Salonen est un chef d’orchestre acclamé et un compositeur prolifique. Avec plus de 60 disques au compteur, il a fait évoluer l’histoire de l’interprétation. Dialogue avec un musicien exceptionnel qui évoque pour Qobuz son travail en studio et son rapport à l’enregistrement.

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.
