Editorial Reviews

What you see is what you get with Motorhead. When what you get is as good as Kiss of Death you will be begging for more. Motorhead has honed their attack to its essential elements. Every ounce of fat has been trimmed away. The band can be accused of repetition. They can also completely destroy everything in sight. The first five tracks on Kiss of Death are so commanding the record could have ended there.

With all the recent metal CDs coming out recently or soon (Iron Maiden, Slayer, BLS)I got to thinking that Motorhead is about due for their bi-annual release and sure enough, about a week ago I looked it up and saw Kiss of Death to be released today! I didn't hesitate to pick it up.

As usual, Lemmy delivers. As long as he lives and as long as he is putting out music, he will never sell out or change his formula. This can be a mixed blessing, since one Motorhead CD sounds a lot like another, but after 30 years this can pretty much be expected.

Now on to the album... It definitely rocks... and hard. It's fast, heavy and everything else you expect Motorhead to be. However, I am only giving 4 stars because their last release Inferno, which was a masterpeice, is better.

Inferno had more standout tracks than this one, particularly "Suicide", "Life's a Bitch", "In the Year of the Wolf" and "Whorehouse Blues". Those 4 tracks alone made that one of my favorite Motorhead albums. While Kiss of Death has many great tracks, there aren't too many that really stick out at me like those.

Motorhead seems to have an every other album thing going on, at least for me. "We Are Motorhead" is my personal favorite CD of theirs. "Hammered" was good but not as consistent and "Inferno" is up there with "We Are" for me as one of their best.

"Kiss of Death" is great, but for me it all kind of runs together a bit and nothing stands out as much as so many other awesome Motorhead tracks I've come to love. Here's a song-by-song rundown...

~~"Sucker," the opening track, is really good. It reminds me of "On Your Feet or On Your Knees" from Bastards.

Being a band who has been around since 1975, and being a band who practically created a whole genre (speed metal) are two fairly astounding feats. Well now, Motorhead can officially add another bragging right to their list. Nowadays, there are very few bands who are twenty-years of age (or more) and still release albums that fans can know what to expect when listening to them. AC-DC, Ozzy Osbourne, and Motorhead are all bands who are like that, but AC-DC haven't released a new disc in six years, and Ozzy only makes one per Leap Year. Thus, Lemmy, Phil, and Mikkey are the only consistently active band remaining in that group.

Some would argue that remaining so consistent isn't something to be proud of because it probably means that the band has played it pretty safe and not tried anything new. But look at it this way: Motorhead is the heavy metal equivalent of comfort food. Their albums are reliable, but not in a bad way because fans are never disappointed. After all, most Metallica fans hated "Load," right? Indeed, Motorhead are an old band who won't win any new fans, but they still have lots of juice left in them, and they're still able to kindle the same kind of excitement that they first produced thirty-some years ago.

Motorhead's twenty-third album, this year's "Kiss Of Death," is no different. It's a little short on surprises, but it covers all of the band's well-known and perfected bases, so the songs have a tried and true sound. The album is ripe with all of the Motorhead goods: groovey guitar riffs/leads, speed punk drumming, and frontman Lemmy Kilmister's famous throat cancer vocals and usually earnest lyrics.

"Sucker," bolstered by a propulsive, blistering riff, gets the album off on a strong foot (and would also make a great show starter).

I suppose there are a lot of Motorhead fans who prefer the halcyon days of the original line-up, with classic releases like "Ace Of Spades" and "Bomber". I know I do, mainly because "Fast Eddie" Clarke was the most stylistic guitar player in the band's long history.

However, Motorhead is Lemmy Kilmister's band, and for a man who just turned 60, "Kiss Of Death" is a punishing loud rock and roll album that fits easily into the already impressive catalogue.

Back to a three piece, Phil Campbell has forged his own sound that doesn't resemble Clarke's, but still lives up to the expectations this type of music demands.

"Kiss Of Death" isn't without a couple of surprises - acoustic guitar during "God Was Never On Your Side", a diatribe against religion, one subject Kilmister truly hates, a blues stomper, and lyrically, "Sword Of Glory". Here, Lemmy is earnest and thoughtful - the insanity of war and all its empty praise for those who fall for unworthy causes, and the admonition that those who fail to learn from history are indeed condemned to repeat it. He even urges the listener to read!

For this cut alone, Lemmy deserves a medal. Yes, the silly stuff is still there, but he uses his bully pulpit from time to time to try to educate his fans, and here's hoping he's successful. I hope I can rock out like this when I'm his age.

"We are motorhead, and we play rock and roll."

Kiss of Death is a 13-track, 45-minute plus whirlwind combustion of just that.

If Inferno was any clue that Motorhead was still going strong after almost 30 years, well, they still are on "Kiss of Death."

There are some plusses to Kiss Of Death over Inferno:

1. Kiss of Death kicks off with the scorchering "sucker", whereas Inferno opened with "terminal Show", a slower, rhythmic tune.

2. Kiss of Death also ends with a sonic bang. The album culminates into a great force of sound in "going down", with Lemmy declaring "you can't mess with Dr. Rock", a humorous poke at their roots. The bonus song "Ramones", sounds looser and harder that when it was originally recorded on the album "1916".

3. Great guitar sound. The mixing was done very well for this album, and it shows in Phil Campbell's playing. One sizzling track that reminds me of "overnight sensation" is "Devil I know", which has Phil's signature tone front row center, and Lemmy declaring, "I might be a dog, but honey you're a bitch". Several other tracks that highlight Phil's guitar sound are "under the gun", "living in the past", "sucker", and "going down".

4. Kiss of Death has some of the best rocking blues tracks ever recorded by the band. The two all-out blues rockers, "one night stand", and "Under the Gun", are placed strategically after two full-force motorhead powerhouse tunes to give the album a deinitive groove, and keep the listener interested. "Under the Gun" has such a catchy chorus and guitar hook--it probably will be played live in one of their upcoming tours.

5. The ballad. While motorhead has done it's shares of hits and misses in the acoustic section, "God Was Never on Your Side" works.
