Oct 21, 2013Raging against the reaper is hardly new 'Head territory, but Lemmy hasn't sounded this engaged with his art in years.
Q MagazineJan 7, 2014Here comes Motorhead, oblivious, oddly unpredictable, deliciously bluesy, punky and rocking--simply magnificent. [Jan 2014, p.126]
Oct 22, 2013Aftershock is another worthy entry into Motörhead’s long discography, with 14 rollicking tracks of brawn, broads, and blazing riffs.
MojoNov 25, 2013The hammer-down moments are the most satisfying, with End Of Time, Death Machine and the frenetic Queen Of The Damned confirming you will not hear a louder, more defiant rock'n'roll album this year. [Dec 2013, p.84]

It's savedNever been a huge metal-head, but I can make an exception for the grand-fathers of the genre, right? Wrong. A really bad record. It's saved from any lower score because they do what they do very well. It's energetic, fast and fun. But it's not my cup of tea.… Expand
