With Skeleton Tree (2016) and Ghosteen (2019), Nick Cave signed a double lease on Heaven and Hell. Carnage finds the leader of the Bad Seeds still holding down both joints, far from average men, closer to some unknown divinity. The album does not bear the name of his illustrious band, but of his double, his musical director for eons: Warren Ellis. With Carnage, the two Australians keep one foot in the latest mystical and electronic work of the Bad Seeds, while looking resolutely straight ahead. A few weeks before its release, Cave described Carnage as “a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe” – the pandemic, of course… The sprechgesang he loves is still here, accentuating the power of his sermons. Meanwhile, mad-scientist Ellis invariably finds the appropriate sound – strings, vintage synths, drunken piano, UFO noises, anything goes – to push these irrational and poetic texts to a holistic artistic elsewhere.

In the grandiose White Elephant, the fascinating approach pays off with a choral worthy of Lennon’s Give Peace a Chance.  In Balcony Man, Cave and Ellis move into almost experimental terrain before taking the opposite direction with an offbeat piano/violin duet. In fact, throughout Carnage the duo enjoy fitting together differing ambiences, interweaving styles, even if that means imploding the traditional framework of the song. Brutal and yes, very beautiful, it is no easy feat to enter this parallel universe unlike any other. Planet Rock may be teeming with species, but Nick Cave remains his own unique animal, ceaselessly questioning his artistic convictions. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
