ALICE IN CHAINS til Roskilde
| Alice in Chains to Roskilde The grunge heroes rock the festival this summer.
Sometimes rumours travel faster than the formal carrier pigeons can keep up with. Many lovers of hard rock and grunge have crossed their fingers for a long time to experience this band, so Roskilde Festival is pleased to confirm the rumour that was kick-started yesterday by people close to the band.
ALICE IN CHAINS (US) visits Roskilde Festival – for the first time ever in the band's over 20-year-long existence.
Alice in Chains is part of the proudest flag bearers of the Seattle scene along with Nirvana and Pearl Jam. However, they show more muscle than lumberjack shirts, and a classic such as Dirt can easily be considered one of the best hard rock albums of the 90s.
With Black Gives Way to Blue from 2009, Alice in Chains has made an album that measures up to the classic material. So the band's first visit at Roskilde Festival could not have a better timing.
The original lead singer Layne Staley died in 2002, but the replacement named William Duvall has a voice that compensates well for the loss.
