Article description

Appearing in the first edition as a yellow double LP (180g) in a gatefold (including liner notes).

Van Halen was founded in 1974. They achieved breakthrough success four years later: in 1978, the band released their self-titled debut album, which was met with enthusiasm. The success catapulted them to become the hottest American hard rock band since Aerosmith. Van Halen revitalized hard rock in a period of lull by bringing youthful West Coast mentality and incredible virtuosity to the genre. They delivered their music with an unrelenting intensity and tonality that captivated the audience. Today, after 30 years and 11 studio releases - including 4 chart-toppers - Van Halen has sold over 56 million records in the United States, making them one of the top 20 best-selling artists of all time. Guitarist Eddie Van Halen redefined the possibilities of the electric guitar and developed an incredibly fast technique with a variety of self-taught tapping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and effects that imitated the sounds of machines and animals. His playing was incredibly inventive and abundant. In addition, the distinctive vocal technique of singer David Lee Roth took the role of a metal singer to a whole different level. He had a sense for the songs and captivated with his presence during live performances. Together, they made Van Halen the most popular American rock & roll band of the late '70s and early '80s, setting the standards for hard rock and Heavy Metal in the '80s. 'The Many Faces of Van Halen' extensively explores the band's history, the collaboration between its members, influences, and the band's fantastic catalog. With numerous illustrations and remastered sound, The Many Faces of Van Halen is an essential addition to the Many Faces collection. The album is not available on streaming platforms!
