Album Review

In the history of music, there are few true mavericks on the level of the legendary Lemmy, a man who seems to do his own thing without any concern for what anyone else thinks about it. This level of confidence has made Motörhead a timeless institution in the world of rock & roll, and on Aftershock, the band's 21st album, it's clear they're not even close to running out of gas. While the band's elemental sound doesn't show much in the way of innovation, the spirit of true rock is so strong within it that it doesn't really matter. These guys aren't influenced so much as they are influences, and as the elder statesmen of being badass, Motörhead deliver yet another show of strength, putting on a master class in the sort of down-and-dirty grit and grime that most other bands can only summon ironically. Although Aftershock probably won't go down in history as one of the band's great albums, it serves as a reminder of Motörhead's, and by that virtue Lemmy's, status as true originals who play by a set of rules that only they seem privy to. Fans of the band, or really anyone who has ever dared to cut the sleeves off of a jean jacket or carved a skull into a desk with a knife, would do well to pay tribute by checking this one out, lest they incur the wrath of Kilmister.

Customer Reviews

Aftershock is truly amazing.

Got up at 2am and downloaded this beauty. First listen on the phones blew me away. Now going full bore on the NAD and Wharfedales. The windows are shaking. Buy this album now you will not be disappointed. Buy it legit and don't illegally download it...the lads deserve the cash. Not going to individually critique the songs. I have no right. Buy it and make up your own minds. Truly brilliant stuff. Long live Motorhead.

Better than ever

I've been a Motörhead fan for years and Atershock is a worthy addition to the collection without a doubt. Still sounding great- the songs wallop along with all the oomph and energy of any other release. Other new bands come and go yet Motörhead nail the formula and deliver consistent albums- even the 2 slower songs fit in well.

It's Motorhead

And this album is amazing, the lads punch out quality material time after time. You don't get to album 21 in a 38 year career otherwise, there is no fillers and even the slow blues jams are fantastic and balance the album out nicely!.....buy it now

Biography

Formed: 1975 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Motörhead's overwhelmingly loud and fast style of heavy metal was one of the most groundbreaking styles the genre had to offer in the late '70s. Though the group's leader, Lemmy Kilminster, had his roots in the hard-rocking space rock band Hawkwind, Motörhead didn't bother with his old group's progressive tendencies, choosing to amplify the heavy biker rock elements of Hawkwind with the speed of punk rock. Motörhead wasn't punk rock — they formed before the Sex Pistols and they loved the hell-for-leather...
