Alice In Chains - Rainier Fog - 2LP -

Price per Unit (stuk): €29.95


A few months ago, Alice In Chains played New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. After opening with "Love, Hate, Love" from their classic debut, 1990's Facelift, they launched into "Check My Brain," from 2009's Black Gives Way to Blue, their first album with singer/guitarist William DuVall. It was welcomed with enthusiastic roars from the packed house, just as the prior song had; it got as much love as the next few songs: "Again," "Them Bones" and "Dam That River." Through the rest of the night, songs from the DuVall era -- let's call it "Alice In Chains Mk. II" -- including "Hollow," "Voices" and "Your Decision," got as much love as the songs from the "Mk. I" lineup.

Black Gives Way to Blue and 2013's The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here set a gold standard for legendary bands replacing a lead singer. As with Black Sabbath, when they replaced Ozzy Osbourne with Ronnie James Dio, and Van Halen when Sammy Hagar succeeded David Lee Roth, DuVall's albums should be seen as a completely different phase of the band, even though he sounds more like his predecessor than Dio and Hagar did.

Rainer Fog, the band's latest album, and their third with DuVall, might be Alice In Chains Mk. II's finest album yet.
