  • Alice in Chains es una banda de grunge estadounidense, fundada en 1987 en Seattle. Con un nombre que ya en sí mismo denota bastante pesimismo y con un sonido más pesado y orientado al heavy metal que los grupos coetáneos de grunge, aunque dentro de este movimiento, Alice in Chains logró emerger de la escena de Seattle hasta convertirse en una de las bandas más importantes del llamado rock alternativo, llegando a vender en los Estados Unidos unos 14 millones de discos. Partes de la clave de su éxito fueron la combinación de ese sentido de indiferencia que se le supone al grunge con la fuerza del metal y característico juego armónico en las voces. Apoyándose en la visión depresiva del cantante Layne Staley sobre las drogas y la muerte, y los acordes metálicos del guitarrista Jerry Cantrell; gracias a eso Alice In Chains se posicionó rápidamente como una de las bandas más aceptadas por el público.En 2006 se anunció la reunión de todos sus miembros, siendo el fallecido vocalista Layne Staley sustituido por William DuVall, ex miembro de Comes with the Fall y la edición de un nuevo álbum de estudio, titulado Black Gives Way to Blue, que salió a la venta el 29 de septiembre de 2009. Actualmente su más reciente álbum titulado The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here fue lanzado el 28 de mayo de 2013, posee un estilo único y además contiene elementos de todos los trabajos anteriores. (es)

The initial lineup was rounded out by drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Starr, who was replaced in 1993 by Mike Inez.Although widely associated with grunge music, the band's sound incorporates heavy metal elements. Since its formation, Alice in Chains has released five studio albums, three EPs, two live albums, four compilations, and two DVDs. The band is known for its distinctive vocal style, which often included the harmonized vocals of Staley and Cantrell.Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s, along with other Seattle bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden. The band was one of the most successful music acts of the 1990s, selling over 20 million albums worldwide, and over 14 million in the US alone. In 1992 the band's second album, Dirt, was released to critical acclaim and was certified quadruple platinum. Their third album, Alice in Chains, was released in 1995 and has been certified double platinum. Both albums achieved No. 1 Billboard 200 releases. The band has had 14 top ten songs on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and nine Grammy Award nominations.Although never officially disbanding, Alice in Chains was plagued by extended inactivity from 1996 onwards due to Staley's substance abuse, which resulted in his death in 2002. The band reunited in 2005 for a live benefit show, performing with a number of guest vocalists. They toured in 2006, with William DuVall taking over as lead vocalist full-time. The new line-up released the band's fourth studio album, Black Gives Way to Blue, in 2009. The album received gold certification by the RIAA. In 2013, the band released The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, its fifth studio album. The band has toured extensively and released several videos in support of these albums. Alice in Chains is currently working on their sixth studio album. (en)
  • Alice in Chains est un groupe de rock américain, originaire de Seattle, Washington. Formé en 1987 par le guitariste Jerry Cantrell et le chanteur Layne Staley, il s'agit de l'un des groupes les plus acclamés, et considéré comme partie intégrante des Big Four of Seattle aux côtés de Nirvana, Pearl Jam et Soundgarden. Le style musical inclut des rythmes sombres et lourds, mais est très mélodique et se caractérise également par une variété de sons, ce qui rend difficile la classification exacte du groupe. Le groupe est généralement catégorisé grunge, mais s'inspire du heavy metal des années 1970 contenant des éléments issus des riffs lourds de Black Sabbath et des éléments de hard rock mélodiques proche du style musical de Led Zeppelin, entrelacé de compositions plus douces et plus propres dans un style plus acoustique. Les lignes vocales harmonisées sont un autre trait distinct du groupe.Le groupe acquiert une renommée internationale grâce à l'album Dirt, et le premier single promotionnel de l'album Would? devient l'un des représentants les plus populaires du rock dans les années 1990. Le groupe dénombre plus de 25 millions d'albums vendus à travers le monde, dont 14 millions aux États-Unis. Après leur publication, les albums Jar of Flies et Alice in Chains atteignent les premières places dans les classements américains. Jar of Flies est le premier EP à atteindre la première place des classements. Le groupe est également nommé neuf fois aux Grammy Awards.Le groupe n'a jamais officiellement été dissous, mais à la mort du chanteur Layne Staley en avril 2002, il suspend son activité jusqu'en 2005, date à laquelle Staley est remplacé par le chanteur William DuVall.

  • Gli Alice in Chains sono un gruppo musicale grunge/alternative metal statunitense, formatosi a Seattle nel 1987. Insieme a Nirvana, Pearl Jam e Soundgarden, sono una delle band di maggior successo dalla scena grunge (Seattle Sound) americana. Tuttavia la musica degli Alice in Chains è ispirata più all'heavy metal che al punk rock o al rock psichedelico; ciò che li accomuna al movimento grunge sono le loro origini, Seattle, e i temi introspettivi (e spesso delicati) dei loro testi. Hanno avuto un'influenza determinante su band successive, quali Deftones, Godsmack, Staind, Drowning Pool, Queens of the Stone Age, Taproot e Seether. (it)
