CD review MOTÖRHEAD "Aftershock"

Veröffentlicht am 18. Oktober 2013 von Markus W. in Motorhead, Heavy Metal, CD Review

(8/10) And review no. 100 on Markus' Heavy Music Blog goes to: Motörhead

Actually I don't know what to say about Motörhead. This is not since I'm speechless, but more because almost everything is said about the band. "Aftershock" is no. 22 in the bands discography and is 100% Motörhead. The album contains again aweome straighforward songs. Already the opener "Heartbreaker" and the second track "Coup de grace" give direction for what to expect. After that start it becomes more relaxed. "Lost woman blues" is a great song, of course with a lot of blues. The same goes for "Dust and glass". The song transports a lot of vibes and can be almost seen as a ballad. Instead of Brazil the journey is "Going to Mexico". Great song with a typical pounding Motörhead rhythm. And than there are the 'high speed fist in your face' tracks like "End of time" and "Paralysed". Those songs take your breath. "Queen of the damned" also belongs to this category. The song starts with the typical Lemmy bass intro and becomes a fast rocker.

"Aftershock" became a great rock'n'roll album which will be loved by all fans of the band.

The question which remains is about Lemmy and his condition. I hope that the energy of the album brings him 100% back on track. More of this great rock'n'roll stuff!
