Editorial Reviews

Bristling with thunderous attitude, and some of the fiercest rhythms and riffs that’ll assault your ears this year, Bad Magic demands that you fall to your knees and pray heartily that your senses don’t get completely pulverized, because big-rig head crushers like the totemic and Motöranthemic “Thunder And Lightning” show that Motörhead are as strong, mean, loud, relentless, uncompromising and goddam heavy as ever. Drawing on their own vast catalogue of road-warrior freewheeling rock’n’roll spirit, Bad Magic also strides confidently into some of the earlier attitudes of Motörmusic. There is the driving malevolence of “Choking On Your Screams” underscoring Lemmy in magnificently omnipotent vocal mood, “Electricity” carries a hefty chunk of punk attitude married with some of Phil Campbell’s best lead work yet, and “Shoot Out All of Your Lights” screams devilish, greasy, biker-born-screw-you-and-yours attitude, Mikkey Dee’s tribal drums pounding out a great path for more Kilmister proclamations. In this, their historic 40th year anniversary, Motörhead will also continue to gleefully deafen fans with a world tour, including an European Summer tour where they will debut brand new Motörclassic “Thunder & Lightning”. The world might be in a state of turmoil and uncertainty, but Bad Magic is solid gold proof that you can always bet on Motörhead to deliver the greatest, leanest and meanest of goods through thick and thin.

With Motorhead, not much changes and Bad Magic is no exception. For 40 years Motorhead has stayed true to their songs, style, and attitude at this point morphing into more than just a band but a legend status. Now just because I'm a big Motorhead fan doesn't mean that I'm blinded by my love and respect for the band. I would admit when a song or album would suck but the reason why Motorhead is my favorite band is because over their 40 year career and 22 studio albums, I have yet to hear an album I didn't like. Bad Magic is one of their best albums. Filled with snarly vocals, catchy riffs, and the most attitude I've heard from a band in a long time. I think Lemmy's failing health has sparked something in him and the band to make a nasty, dark, and fast album that's just outstanding. From front to finish this is Motorhead and if you haven't been a fan this probably won't change your mind but it's not a bad place to start for new fans.

There are really only a few things in life we can count on. One is that we will die. Another is that Motorhead is going to release a pulse pounding, heavy, jam filled album and once again, they do not disappoint at all. Mikkey Dee sounds amazing and purely flawless on the drums while Campbell plays his guitar masterfully busting out memorable and furious solos. Despite all the health problems Lemmy has had this year, he still sings powerfully and captivates with an angry, heavy snarling vocal performance. The songs are as catchy as ever and Shoot Out All the Lights contains a great call and response section. Motorhead have always been capable of busting out a great ballad and this doesn't change with the infectious Til The End. Every song is a riveting and heavy performance by this trio and then we hit the grand finale, a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil." Not very many bands could pull off a Stones cover, but HOLY CRAP does Motorhead SLAY this song! I was smiling from ear to ear. Lemmy doesn't try to mimic Jagger but instead puts his own unique snarling spin on the vocals while Phil plays a couple of perfect solos to compliment Dee's tight and fluid drumming. This album is pretty much perfect and this band needs a #1 in the U.S. so I urge you, if you want some talented classic metal in your life, pick this album up.

The great thing about Motörhead’s sound is that it ages really well. From the very beginning, they’ve succeeded in making rawness and ugliness sound appealing. So even as Lemmy’s voice has grown wheezier over the past few years, it matters not; as long as it fits the band’s gritty sound, they can work this imperfection in their favour. But that’s not to say that his singing isn’t good on this album. The man can still hit the high notes when needed; the unexpected key change at the end of “Shoot Out All of Your Lights” extinguishes all doubt in that area.

The snarl and attitude is still 100% present in the vocals as well, which is made immediately apparent with the first track “Victory or Die” – a truly blistering opening statement which aims to convince each and every listener that Motörhead have no intentions of toning it down in spite of their age. “Thunder and Lightning” follows, and steps things up a notch with a faster tempo, a greater intensity, and more memorable moments. It’s at this stage where listeners can stop worrying about whether or not this great band can still deliver, and instead just sit back and enjoy the rest of the album with confidence that they’re in for quite a ride.

Next comes “Fire Storm Hotel”, providing some welcome variation with its groovy ZZ Top-type groove and super catchy vocal melody. The riff is actually kinda like a variation of Top’s “Sharp Dressed Man”, in a similar way to how “No Class” bears resemblance to “Tush”, though perhaps not quite as closely.

“Shoot Out All of Your Lights” follows, and pretty much eclipses everything the album has offered up until this point, and unfortunately casts a shadow over the three lesser tracks that succeed it.

As usual, I expect a Motorhead album to be relentless, pounding, dangerous, snarly and a little bit anarchic.....and this album does not disappoint at all, even after 40 years. These guys have drank from Keith Richard's dosed fountain of youth and came out swinging. From the opening groan of Victory or Die to the hyperkinetic pace of Shoot Out All Your Lights, this music is typical Motorhead mayhem. The upcoming tour should be well worth the price of admission if this new release is any indication of the life left in these super-humans. Lemmy sounds as good and gravely as ever, Campbell's guitar work is steady AND stellar and Dee's drum kit never slows down. Lots of nice little touches make this one special...the ominous demon voice in Evil Eye, the guitar solo that bursts out and eats your face in Teach Them How To Bleed and Lemmy channeling his own evil twin self on Choking On Your Screams. It's all good...and bad...which is good.

Everything Motorhead has been the past 40 years, You will hear in Bad Magic. Cameron Webb did another great job of producing another Major Motorhead Album. Every song stands out and gets better with each playthrough.

1. Victory Or Die- Love the opening track, I like the guitar chord changes Phil makes, Especially the chords during the solo, After that Lemmy's voice and Mikkey's drums prepare for the ending of the song. Classic Motorhead.

2. Thunder And Lighting- Potent Lyrics and guitar work- (Maybe you'll shake, Maybe you'll break, You'll never escape, Thunder And Lighting). I love Mikkey's drums at 2:32 to the end of the song.

3. Fire Storm Hotel- This song will make you feel the fire burn in your soul and you can't check out for the rest of your life.

4. Shoot Out All Of Your Lights- Mikkey's drums stands out in this track along with phil's power guitar. Song has a deep feel to it. Great solo.

5. The Devil- Very heavy rocker. Brain May plays a fantastic solo.

6. Electricity- Fast paced song with Phil's guitar work. Powerful Lyrics from Lemmy- (Freedom to believe don't cost a thing, Innocence should not be bought and sold).

7. Evil Eye- Mikkey's fast drumming starts first, Followed by Lemmy's bass, Then Phil's power chords give the song a powerful sound. I also love Lemmy's voice in this, Sounds like he's about to get you.

8. Teach Them How To Bleed- Classic Rock 'N' Roll sound. Love Mikkey's drums. I like the ending of the song.

9. Till The End- Motorhead are no strangers to meaningful songs. Till The End's a red sunset falling into a eternal blue ocean of time.
