In life there’s certain things that are consistent, staying the same for better or for worse. The same goes for rock, and for the better there is Motörhead. For over 35 years, Lemmy Kilmister and crew have been cranking out the jams,with dirty, booze-fueled rock and roll. A little metal here and there, a little punk on the side, but it’s all pure rock.
For their 20th studio album The Wörld is Yours (out February 8, 2011 via EMI), Motörhead delivers their strongest effort in recent memory. The amount of groove on the album makes it clear why they chose Clutch as a supporting act on their current tour. It’s a great fit.
“War” and “Lies” are common themes for the record, as is “the true religion” of “Rock N Roll Music,” – a song that carries a lead that could’ve been heard in a beer commercial circa 1985.
Motörhead may not gain a ton of new followers with The Wörld is Yours, but true believers have something new to dig – something best cranked LOUD.
