Since the Black Dahlia Murder appeared in 2003 with the compelling if imperfect Unhallowed, they've established a well-deserved reputation for innovation and heaviness on death metal's extreme edge. Due to a grueling touring regimen and work ethic, they've garnered a fanatical following that seems to grow almost exponentially with each release. Nightbringers, their eighth, marks the first time TBDM have consciously looked at their roots and brought them into the present as a basis to push off from. Part of the rear-view glance may have to do with new lead guitarist Brandon Ellis (also a member of tech-death powerhouses Arsis). Not only does he deliver brutal riffage, he composed a good deal of the material on Nightbringers based on the influence of the band's trademark sound. While earworm hooks and crunchy brutal riffs have always been part of TBDM's sonic signature (along with Trevor Strnad's dark poetic lyrics and unhinged vocals), listeners have not heard them in such abundance since 2007's Nocturnal and 2008's Deflorate. This is true to such a degree that the set's four standout tracks (though there are no weaklings in this 33-minute crash-and-burn assault) could have been easily placed on either of those recordings and, as a whole, this set feels like it completes a trilogy, albeit a decade on. Opener "Widowmaker" is one of the best starter cuts the group has delivered in a while. The riff is monolithic; its hook won't let go. The melody is underscored by Strnad's instantly recognizable, earthquaking vocals (complete with visceral screams) and a maniacal shredding solo by Ellis. With its twin-guitar riffing, the title track single is more chug than squall, but drummer Alan Cassidy and bassist Max Lavelle build on that with double-timed kick drum force and a ferocious bass throb. Strnad's non-clichéd indictment of Christianity is growled and screamed, empowered further by Ellis' screaming solo and Brian Eschbach's detuned atonal counterpoint riff. "Kings of the Nightworld" is full-throttle melo-death complemented by menacing, chanted gang vocals, and makes for one of the set's catchiest tracks. It's followed by "Catacomb Hecatomb," whose twin-guitar intro is rivaled by the whomp of Cassidy's kit and Strnad's seemingly effortless vocal glide between filthy guttural roil and assaultive screaming. The set finishes strong as well, first with the gorgeous guitar interplay and blastbeats in "As Good as Dead," while closer "The Lonely Deceased" seems to pour gasoline on the fire -- even during an acoustic guitar break in the middle. Most bands who've been together this long reach a point where all that's left is refining an already established signature. The Black Dahlia Murder needn't refine anything. As displayed on Nightbringers, there's plenty of room left to explore and experiment inside their sound, while expanding its parameters. They've done both to excellent effect here. ~ Thom Jurek

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 quarante-cinq ans après sa sortie.

Alice Cooper n’évite pas le danger

Le parcours d’Alice Cooper est avant un cas exceptionnel de dédoublement de personnalité. Comme dans “L’Étrange Cas du docteur Jekyll et de Mister 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 cinquante-quatre ans de carrière, on pourra en outre 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…
