Album Review: Aftershock


Motorhead is a band that comes from the AC/DC school of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. After 40 years of busting out ferocious, no-frills music, the power trio churns out their 21st studio album in Aftershock, 14 tracks of vintage Motorhead tunes.

Lemmy and company stick to formula doing what they do best. Playing their brand of snarly, nasty, heavy punk rock infused heavy metal.

The only real deviation, for lack of a better term, is the dirty, raunchy, southern blues song “Lost Woman Blues” which is blues the way only Motorhead could do blues.

Christopher Krovatin of Revolver magazine had this to say about the album:

“Reviewing a Motorhead album is like reviewing a cheeseburger – unless something truly awful has happened, it will at the very worse be pretty damn good.”

Never over-technical about their playing, Motorhead is a refreshing dose of pure, fast-paced, sleazy rock n roll in a genre-strangled world and Aftershock is another great reminder of that fact.

Highlights of the album include “Heartbreaker” “Coup De Grace” “End of Time” “Lost Woman Blues” and “Death Machine.”
