Biography Massive AttackРедактировать
Massive Attack – group from Bristol, founded in 1988. Musicians are rightfully considered pioneers of trip-hop, but their style incorporates elements of jazz, hip-hop, rock, reggae and soul. The group has a permanent staff, but during the recording of Massive Attack is frequently invited by a variety of vocalists and session musicians. By 2010 the band has five Studio albums, a Remix album, a greatest-hits collection and two of the soundtrack to the movies.
The story of Massive Attack began in the eighties when I first met Grant Marshall, Robert Del Naja and Andrew Vault. At that time they were part of a musical subculture called the Wild Bunch, consisting of DJs, sound engineers and musicians of completely different directions. In 1988 Massive Attack released their first single Any Love. Later this song was re-recorded with Tony brown and included in the second single Daydreaming in 1990. In 1991 came the first Massive Attack album called Blue Lines, and has become one of the most memorable British albums released in the 90-ies. Blue Lines provided the audience with a mixture of Jamaican reggae, American hip-hop and even jazz. Also in the recording was attended by such musicians as Tricky, Shara Nelson and Horace Andy. Shara Nelson sang later became the famous song Unfinished Sympathy.
In 1994 they released their second album, Protection. Now in music, Massive Attack became a little less samples and more live instruments. The unhurried pace of the first album has also changed – it became even more viscous. For recording vocals was invited Tracey thorn and Nicolette. Craig Armstrong also helped in the creation of the Protection – he recorded the piano writing in the Heat Miser and Weather the Storm, and took part in the recording Sly. The sound, which at the time created a Massive Attack, Tricky and Portishead, music critics dubbed trip-hop. In 1995, he published No Protection, an album of remixes made famous musician Mad Professor. In 1996 the musicians Massive Attack have formed their own label Melankolic, which was recorded by Horace Andy, Craig Armstrong and other singers and bands.
In 1998 they released their most successful album – Mezzanine. The sound of Massive Attack on each new album different from the previous one, and the Mezzanine was no exception. Softness Protection is left behind, the sound became more intense and hard, the keyboard parts were replaced by guitar. For the record, was invited to Elizabeth Fraser, who performed one of the hit songs of the band – Teardrop. It is worth noting that the song Angel from the album Mezzanine has performed in many television series and films (a Large sum guy Ritchie is one of them), and many groups, including metallers Sepultura, made it a cover version.
During this period, the group was split: after recording, Andrew Vault left Massive Attack. Other band members pursued solo projects: Robert Del Naja devoted much time to photography and fine art, and Grant Marshall came back to DJing. Anyway, in 2003, Massive Attack released 100th Window, unusual for a group sound: the samples were completely absent and all parties were recorded on the usual musical instruments and synthesizers. However, even a slower tempo and a new sound did not deter fans of the band. In 2004 Massive Attack have written the soundtrack to the Luc Besson film Danny the Dog, and in 2005 – the soundtrack to the film Bullet Boy. In 2006 the band released a best-of album Collected, which also featured all the music videos, rare recordings, previously unreleased material and two new songs – Live with Me and False Flags. The fifth Studio album by Massive Attack was released in 2010 and received the name of Heligoland.
