Managing to produce an eighth album that lasts almost eighty minutes over eight tracks, three years after the release of a critically acclaimed record when the band was not the main source of income for its members, is a challenge that only a panel of carefully selected bands are able to meet. Yet Cult of Luna have passed with flying colours, delivering the brilliant A Dawn to Fear. Trying to tie the northern combo down to one genre would be pointless, even under the label “post-[insert genre here]”, as they have always managed to explore these icy regions without ever repeating the same formula. While Vertikal was cold and packed with gravitas, and Mariner was particularly aerial, A Dawn to Fear marks their return to earth, to the organic, to the visceral. Particularly dense and rich, this record offers a synthesis of Cult of Luna, showcasing all the band’s fortes, from their epic riffs (see the opening notes of The Silent Man) to their trance- inducing long post-rock solos (A Dawn to Fear and Lights on the Hill last 15 minutes) while knowing how (and this is the band’s strength) to surprise even their most devoted fans. Like all great works, A Dawn to Fear is not easily tamed. You must listen to the record several times to comprehend its intrinsic depth. One of the most beautiful metal releases of 2019 to be consumed without moderation, if possible on top volume in front of a fire while a storm rages outside. © Théo Roumier/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.
