Biography

Motörhead have never JUST been the best rock'n'roll band in the world. They've never JUST been the loudest. Or the hardest. Or the toughest. Or the bad-ass-est. No...Motörhead are also a lifestyle.

Motörhead are a mindset, a belief, a way to live your life, a way to both survive and beat a society that sometimes seems intent on grinding you down.

Editorial Reviews

2012 six CD boxset containing six of the band's finest albums housed in miniature gatefold LP sleeves: Overkill, Bomber, Ace Of Spades, No Sleep 'Till Hammersmith, Iron Fist and Another Perfect Day. Forming the band after his unceremonious sacking from Hawkwind, Mot”rhead mainman and force of nature, Ian Fraser Kilmister, or Lemmy to the world, gunned the accelerator and wheel spun his very own `silver machine' into the fast lane of the UK singles and album chart, leaving on-lookers spitting dust from gritted snaggleteeth. Through varying line-up changes and more ups and downs than a spin on the Whacky Goldmine, Mot”rhead have released some of the most influential Heavy Metal Rock N' Roll known to any sub-human, and in doing so, have been widely regarded as spawning the illegitimate genre that became known as `Speed Metal'.

Motörhead are a legendary British rock band, highly influential in the development of many different rock and metal subgenres (including Thrash Metal, where many bands cover their songs) who love Rock N' Roll but for some reason blurred the lines of Punk and Heavy Metal when actually playing it.

This box set compiles the bands second through to sixth studio albums, as well as their first live album. The albums in question are 1979's Overkill & Bomber, as well as 1980's Ace Of Spades, 1981's No Sleep `Till Hammersmith, 1982's Iron Fist and finally 1983's Another Perfect Day.

All these albums feature the classic line-up of Ian `Lemmy' Kilmister, Phil `Philthy Animal' Taylor and `Fast' Eddie Clarke, with the exception of Another Perfect Day on which Clarke is replaced on guitar by Thin Lizzy's Brian Robertson.

As you can imagine, these albums contain all sorts of fan-favourite tracks and memorable singles like `Ace Of Spades,' `(We Are) The Roadcrew,' `Overkill,' `Damage Case,' `Iron Fist,' `Metropolis,' `Speedfreak' `(Don't Need) No Religion,' `Shine' and `Stone Dead Forever.'

The albums come housed in a 14cm x 13cm x 3.5cm thick cardboard box, which contains the CDs in six separate two-paneled cardboard sleeves that are a hybrid halfway-point between digipaks, vinyl replicas and free-with-a-magazine cardboard sleeves. The outside front and back of the cases replicate the album artwork and the inside features one panel of band photos and one panel with a circular hole through which the disc is visible, although the disc actually exits out of the side. The cases even have a little spine each so you can tell which sleeve is which without having to dump out the whole thing just to get to the one you wanted.

Motorhead is one of those bands that I know some of there songs and had a greatest hits collection. But I had never heard any of their classic albums front to back. This is a nice collection of their 6 classic albums each one good. If you have heard some Motorhead and liked it. Now you want more and to know their legacy. Buy this, nice collection of good music at the right price.
