"Aftershock", Motörhead’s mammoth 21st studio album, hits stores in North America on October 22nd, 2013 via UDR Music. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, "Aftershock" is a true leveler, a crushing confirmation of everything Motörhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motörhead in perhaps their best writing form for years.
"Aftershock" track listing:
Coup de Grace
Lost Woman Blues
End Of Time
Do You Believe
Dust And Glass
Going To Mexico
Silence When You Speak To Me
Queen Of The Damned
Keep Your Powder Dry
With "Aftershock", there’s swagger, there’s punch, there’s speed and there’s dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motörhead is not simply a band, it’s a genre!
That genre, more than ever, resonates with hearty independence and swashbuckle. Whether it’s “Heartbreaker” throwing hooks and riffs into your head, the double-kick concussiveness of “Paralyzed” with Campbell’s fuelled attack, or the thunderous ride-off-the-Rickenbacker Motörcharge of “Going To Mexico”, "Aftershock" takes gleeful twists and turns which re-announce the Motörlegend. There’s the smoky biker bar blues in the shape of “Dust And Glass”, Lemmy’s late-night vocals evoking last-call and melancholy, the pogo-powered punk-spiked stab of “Queen Of The Damned” and the deliciously steamy, humid mournful “Lost Woman Blues” which midway through decides to kick over the stool and stomp out the saloon door.
Motörhead are Motörhead are Motörhead…and their "Aftershock" will be felt worldwide…
