Motorhead

Album Review: Motorhead - "Aftermath"

Gather around, children, and I will tell you the tale of what it was like in the time before time. When the world was a vast emptiness waiting for a spark to ignite the torch of hope and rock and roll. It was 1975 and the spark erupted when a man we'll call "Lemmy" appeared on the scene with his band Motorhead. They would go on to bring the world "Overkill", "The Ace of Spades", "Iron Fist", "Eat The Rich", "Rock and Roll" and so much more. 38 years and 21 studio albums later, Motorhead gives us another gift in the form of their latest record "Aftermath".

Album Review: Motörhead - "The World is Ours, Vol. 2"

If you are a heavy metal fan, Motörhead’s live show is one of those pinnacle “must-haves.” While Lemmy and his cohorts continue to insist that they are nothing more than a rock and roll band, seeing Motörhead live is watching a living oral history of the genesis of heavy metal.

Concert Review: Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival – The Main Stage

Asking Alexandria was technically asked to open the main stage, but in reality, they were ex post facto to Anthrax, and began performing as soon as the veteran band had finished. As such, double A (not Arn Anderson,) was forced to deal with the nearly impossible task of playing to a transitory audience. They had completed “Welcome,” and were through a good portion of “Closure” before the bulk of the crowd moving from one stage to another had even had their tickets checked.

Concert Review: Gigantour - Megadeth, Motorhead

Not so different from the halcyon days of Ozzfest or Lollapalooza, Gigantour has become an annual staple in the music community. At the same time, the tour is among the last of a dying breed. The preponderance of festivals and their emerging popularity has caused a sort of death to the travelling circus of large tours. Those that still exist, such as the Mayhem festival and, for those inclined, the Warp tour, have been corporatized and transformed into musical billboard advertisements.

Motorhead gives new song "Outlaw" to TROMA for "Mr. Bricks"

Nothing is more metal than Lemmy Kilmister, and nothing says pure kick ass than Motorhead. Say what you will about Lemmy, but here's a man that can honestly say fame never changed him, he never forgot his beginnings, and he's always offered his support for things he loves, asking for nothing in return...well, maybe some Jack Daniels. But that's it!!

Lemmy (REVIEW)

Lemmy. The name alone invokes the stereotype of the man himself. His image is ubiquitous; the cowboy hat, the leather boots, the Marlboro reds, the swaggering visage.

Lemmy. One of the Fathers of Metal. A lifelong legacy of unflinching dedication to rock and roll. A pillar of the music community since the heady days of Hawkwind. An archetype unto himself. Lemmy isn’t “like” anyone. Rather, people try to be “like” him. They usually fall short.

Lemmy. As Lars Ulrich is quick to point out in this new documentary, the name itself “should be a verb.”

Album Review: Motörhead - "The Wörld is Yours"

Among the fan circles of hard rock and heavy metal, only two names imply the kind of ultimate, all encompassing, you-know-what-to-expect legacy that is earned through a career of unflinching consistency. AC/DC, the forever hard-charging and ageless band from Australia is one. Motörhead, the heavy drinking, tough as nails biker-club outfit from England is the other.

The latter’s new release “The Wörld is Yours” is another entry into that legacy, and customary to idiom for Motörhead, is strong on character and low on depth. In this instance, that’s a particularly good thing.
