Chroniqueur

Samedi 1 avril 1995, quelque part dans la vallée de la Meuse, un concert est violemment interrompu par des moustachus en uniforme. Aussi marquant que l’hérésie musicale des cowboys de l’enfer dans un walkman, cette première expérience de musique live conforte une idée personnelle de refus/résistance comme nouveau nirvana sonore. Pas besoin de thérapie, le metal est un fantastique exutoire autorisant tout et défiant tout. Une musique diaboliquement envoutante où les ambiances et les riffs à gogo ont le pouvoir d’emmener dans d’autres sphères. Puissance, insoumission, liberté, implication totale. Le chaos et l’harmonie.
