What do you get when you combine half of Iron Maiden's legendary dual-guitar assault and one of the most highly regarded "shred" guitarists who also happened to once be part of Mr. Big and Poison? You get an album that sounds absolutely nothing like any of those bands. Instead, the debut collaboration from these two longtime friends veers immediately into comfort rock territory—leaning heavily on melodic, sorta-bluesy, sorta-crunchy structures that are clearly straight from the "most-played" section of their personal record collections. Evoking both classic '70s hard rock in the UFO/Thin Lizzy vein and—somewhat surprisingly—early '90s rock (Kotzen's voice is occasionally a dead ringer for Chris Cornell's), the nine tracks are both breezy and burly. While "Solar Fire" may evoke the jazzy, semi-prog vibe of early '70s Manfred Mann with its title, in execution, the track is a gutsy barnburner, thanks to the fiery drumwork of Maiden's Nicko McBrain who guests here. Meanwhile, the big chorus of "Taking My Chances" feels like it wouldn't have been out of place on a 1991 edition of Headbangers Ball. On these and other tracks, like the dynamic "Scars", Smith and Kotzen are going with what they know, and swinging for the fences with glee. While (thankfully) it never devolves into the sort of gunslinging guitar duels that one would expect from such a team-up, both players get plenty of space to show off (tastefully) with excellent, melodic, and decidedly unflashy solos throughout. Smith and Kotzen clearly enjoyed making this album, and it probably didn't hurt that they recorded it on the Turks and Caicos Islands the month before the pandemic hit. The joy they got from writing, playing, and recording this material is apparent—even though they're probably not gonna win any innovation medals for it. And yeah, in 2021, there's not much of a place for straightforward, swaggering rock records from gentlemen on the other side of 50, but that doesn't diminish the simple pleasures that a record like this can bring. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz

Les Grands Angles...
La naissance du death metal suédois

Berceau d’une quantité incalculable de groupes de metal, la Suède s’est illustrée au niveau international au début des années 90 avec l’apparition soudaine d’une scène death metal féconde et dynamique. Petit retour en arrière pour comprendre comment s’est développée cette chapelle musicale et ce qui fait son originalité.

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…

“Back in Black” : AC/DC en pleine lumière

Avec ses 50 millions d’exemplaires, “Back in Black” est le deuxième album le plus vendu au monde, juste derrière “Thriller” de Michael Jackson ! Qui aurait imaginé que ce septième opus studio d’AC/DC arborerait un tel palmarès alors que son charismatique chanteur Bon Scott est mort prématurément après la sortie de “Highway to Hell”. La fin du tome 1 mais surtout le début du tome 2 dont les fans du gang australien continuent aujourd’hui à tourner les pages…
