When an intoxicated Bon Scott died by choking on his own vomit in February 1980, no one envisaged a future for AC/DC. However, the Anglo-Australian band succeeded in finding a replacement for their legendary lead singer. Brian Johnson from the band Geordie rose to the challenge against all odds and imposed a strong, primarily high-pitched singing style different to his predecessor. With its legendary, grieving black sleeve, Back in Black marked the birth of a new AC/DC and contains a series of incredible compositions. On guitars the Young brothers - Malcolm with his Gretsch and Angus with his irreplaceable Gibson SG - outdo each other’s genius as much through the effectiveness of their riffs as the precision of their solos (notably on Back in Black and You Shook Me All Night Long). They do pure AC/DC (What Do You Do for Money Honey), but also add some thick ZZ Top boogy elements (Have a Drink on Me), theatrical hard rock à la Led Zep (Shake a Leg) and let us not forget the ode to the God of Blues (Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution). Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd finish the job by providing the record with concrete rhythmic foundations of most effective and polished quality. Upon the release of Back in Black on the 15th of July 1980, fans were, without surprise, torn on the case of Brian Johnson. Could the band go on without Bon Scott? The record’s success and the world tour that followed quelled any debate and, forty years later, no one questions the decision for a second. With 50 million units sold, Back in Black is the second best-selling album of all time, just behind a certain Thriller by Michael Jackson… © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Back in Black: AC/DC in all its 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 Ben 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…

Diabolus in Musica: 50 Years of Black Sabbath

In the autumn of 1969, four young lads from Birmingham crammed themselves into a studio in London for what looked like their last chance at making a career in music. They had 24 hours to record and to change their lives forever. They left the studio with “Black Sabbath” an eponymous debut album from the band led by Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tommy Iommi that would turn a whole generation onto heavy metal. Let us look back on a sonic revolution.

The Origins of Swedish Death Metal

As the birthplace of an ever-increasing number of metal groups, Sweden proved their worth internationally in the early 90s when a dynamic crowd of metalheads burst onto the scene. We look back in time to understand how Swedish death metal developed and what made it so original.
