Motorhead; proper noun: "King of the hard rock/heavy metal throne since '79",
This review is from: Aftershock (Audio CD)
Without a doubt Motorhead has one of (if not the longest and most consistent streak) in all things hard rock and heavy metal. Lemmy is the definition of hardwork and success and at almost 70 years old, he has released one heck of an album for the awaiting masses. I wont get into too much detail as 1) most of you have your own opinions and have already heard this killer release. 2) I have to write a college paper so I will keep this brief haha.
Aftershock is one of their best albums. With the speed, intensity, rasp from Lemmy's aging voice, and some major blues influences this might be one of my favorite Motorhead albums of all time. Not Ace Of Spades nor Overkill, but something different, something new. Whenever most bands decide to release an album (especially those in age) its primary purpose is for those die hard fans from the days of old. With "Aftershock" Motorhead has changed the game! Aftershock is a great album and is possibly a great album for a new fan to get into. Its accessible, it rocks, it shocks all those who doubted in this band.
I'm excited to say that I cant stop listening to this! I'm glad Lemmy has recovered from the illness he had prior to Aftershock. But friends, metalheads, rock n roll fans, if you play this album on high blast, I assure you the ground will quake. And beware for its usually the aftershock that catches people off guard.

On the thrown since 79' because of Overkill and Bomber ? Or are you referring to their first self-titled release which was 77' ? Or their formation which was 75' ?

I know they were formed in '75 and their debut was good, but yes when Overkill hit (In my opinion) it changed the landscape of all things hard rock and heavy metal.

Just making sure lol. I'd agree that Overkill & Bomber both released in 79' put them on the map and were better all round albums then their debut album.

Yeah man I love those two, more than Ace Of Spades. Bomber was great (something about it makes me want to shoot pool) and Overkill had unmatched intensity. I hope you enjoy Aftershock my friend!
