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


Motörhead is like a scotch, the older they get the the better rock they ram in your ear holes (yeah makes no sense). Hands down some of the best the boys have pumped out, one of my top Motörhead albums.

Lemmy, please keep beating the Reaper off for another lifetime.

Putting the "Rock" back in Rocktober!

Motorhead is one of the few bands you can always depend on to provide you with a soundtrack everyday working man's life. They always push a little harder, yet the fundimental drive for them is to produce the best Rock and Roll, something they achieve time and time again.Never disapointing thier fans. This one has some Rockabilly and blues depth to shock the heck out of you. As they say at every concert, They are called Motorhead, and they play Rock and Roll" enuff said!

Best MH album in years!

It's Motörhead: you know what to expect and the boys deliver in their best album in many years. Yes, even better that Inferno.

Going to Mexico, Queen of the Damned and End of Time are bound to be classics.

This is one of those few albums I'd love to see performed in its entirety live.

If you're a Motörhead fan, buy it now.

If you're on the fence, buy it now.

If you're not a fan, go away!


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 Kilmister, 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...
