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.

What can I say, it's Motörhead and it's good Rock n Roll!!! Hail Lemmy!!!

Can't wait for more...

I am a huge Motorhead fan. I have lots of Motorhead fan stuff. 55 years old and my wife keeps asking me when I plan on growing up…has nothing to do with age. Everything to do with attitude. I have every CD and record ever released, some bootleg, rarities, pictures disc, CD's, etc. I started buying Motorhead paraphernalia when I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall, UK. Saw them with Saxon, Tank, and others. Was forever hooked since then. I have had the pleasure to hear three tracks from Aftershock. I think my favorite so far is "Crying Shame." Giving 3-stars until I hear everything. But so far so good. I am certain that my favorite all time band will get five stars…enjoy at maximum volume! Anything less is an insult to Lemmy. Both arms in the air. "Turn up the bass."

All Hail Motorhead!!

Great stuff. Everything else pales in comparison. Looking forward to the next 40 years with the great Motorhead.

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...
