Benediction aren’t necessarily the most widely recognised death metal band going. While there at the genre’s origins and reasonably popular in their early days, the Birmingham combo remained at the top of the European scene up until the excellent Transcend the Rubicon (1993). Competition soon began to overtake them, and their career underwent several years of stagnation despite their albums being generally well received. After 12 years of no new material, the Brits are back with the ruthless album, Scriptures. Dave Ingram, the band’s singer from 1990 to 1998 has returned to the fold after the departure of Dave Hunt (also the vocalist for Anaal Nathrakh) who held the band’s mic for 21 years. The return of their prodigal son, who left to join Bolt Thrower, restores the groups old image thanks to his singing that is marvellously representative of traditional death metal. Despite Scott Atkins very contemporary production (Cradle of Filth, Vader…), Benediction’s style remains fiercely anchored in the 90s, when the genre still allowed itself to show some of its thrash influences (cf. Progenitors of A New Paradigm) and unashamed grooves (cf. Scriptures in Scarlet and its verse are worthy of Napalm Death’s Harmony Corruption). This eighth album revisits all known tempos in the style and presents a collection of fantastic riffs. “Death Metal for dummies” you might call it. There’s little chance that this will be enough to transform Scriptures into a blockbuster and Benediction into a ‘bankable’ band, but it is doubtless enough to insure you spend the 46:50 runtime tapping your foot and nodding your head while smiling in satisfaction. It’s an enormous record. What’s more, if this album is enough to finally convince everyone that Benediction is much more than simply the “Napalm Death’s singer Barney Greenway’s first group”, a cumbersome act that he ditched in 1990, then it is certainly a service to everyone. © Charlélie Arnaud/Qobuz

Alice Cooper doesn’t run from danger

More than anything, Alice Cooper’s life is an extraordinary case of split personality. Much like in “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier abandoned himself to the dominance of the showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, despite always speaking of Alice in the third person in interviews, he is still a simple, normal man in private, far from the stage where he is all about excess and provocation. Throughout his fifty-four-year career, he’s also demonstrated a touch of schizophrenia that can be found in his numerous style changes. While he is credited for inventing shock rock, he did try his hand at – almost – everything, with more or less success, from pop to early hard rock, as well as heavy metal, new wave, industrial…

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

Back in Black: AC/DC in all Their Glory

With 50 million copies sold, Back in Black is the second best-selling album in the world just behind Michael Jackson’s thriller. Who could have imagined that AC/DC’s seventh studio album would pick up so many awards considering their charismatic lead-singer Bon Scott’s premature death after the release of Highway to Hell. The album marked the end of their first chapter but the beginning of their second which fans of the Australian band today continue to relish…
