Image of Motörhead


Motörhead's overwhelmingly loud and fast style of heavy metal was one of the most groundbreaking styles the genre had to offer in the late '70s. Though the group's leader, Lemmy Kilmister, had his roots in the hard-rocking space rock band Hawkwind, Motörhead didn't bother with his old group's progressive tendencies, choosing to amplify the heavy biker rock ...

Product Description


Twenty years and one Top Shop T-shirt fad on from their inception, Inferno renews Motorhead's vow to amphetamine-speed rock & roll in its most pure, distilled form. Age has not mellowed them: Inferno boasts a clutch of numbers explicitly dealing with death, murder and suicide, each one executed with the unforgiving confidence and well-honed chops of the master axeman. Weathered by decades of abuse, Lemmy's hoarse bark now sounds as sanded and moulded as a glowering gargoyle, but it suits everything from the murderous, white-hot bass chug of "Killers" to the good-time rock & roll of "Life's A Bitch"--admittedly, not a million miles apart, but that's par for the course here--with ease. Meanwhile, guitar-for-hire Steve Vai guests on two numbers, "Terminal Show" and "Down On Me", but while Vai's name is commonly a byword for guitar-shredding pomposity of the first order, here his ostentatious excesses are neatly compressed into two guitar solos of bracing speed and dexterity. In fact, it's kind of fitting that the only sign of late years comes on "Whorehouse Blues"--an acoustic closer that sees Lemmy wheezing into a harmonica, reviving the old Delta blues in all its sordid, licentious glory. --Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up 13 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lets get this out of the way first - I am a huge fan, always have been, always will be. However, I would hope that this fact wouldn't stop me from giving an honest and critical opinion where necessary. For instance, Iron Fist had internal turmoil written all over it coz it was crap. More up to date and their last release, Hammered, was formulaic and uninspiring. Although Lemmy is quite rightly regarded as one of the last true rock legends who hasn't sold his soul to the record company accountants, that doesn't mean he's incapable of writing a few turkeys on the way.
However with Inferno I'm pleased to report that we're back on track. The saying 'familiarity breeds contempt' is dispelled here - it should read 'familiarity inspires tight musicianship and ear-bashing rock and roll unequalled by any other band.' Inferno is a winner, no two ways about it. I've left this review a good few weeks so as not to give any knee jerk reaction. The proof of the pudding was when I was on the way home from my dull job today and was grinning from ear to ear in the car whilst nodding my head to the opening track. Surely the measure of a good album is that you don't get tired of hearing it. I put Iron Fist on every now and again for novelty value and I haven't heard Hammered for over a year - Inferno won't go that way.
If a band wants to carry on evolving and writing new music rather than trot out the old hits on tour every couple of years then they have to make sure that anything new moves them along to a different place. Otherwise they go stale and end up playing with Bananarama on the Here and Now tour at Christmas. I defy anybody who has a passion for good, old-fashioned , loud, hard rock and roll to be anything other than impressed by Inferno.

5.0 out of 5 stars No sleep 'til Hammersmith 10 Aug 2006
By D. Lu
Format:Audio CD
A fantastic new album to headline Motorhead's 30th anniversary last year and a good line-up of new songs. The live gig they did at Hammersmith Apollo was actually worth going to, and it's good to see that the production and the editing has once again been superb. Although the band has changed it's looks through the years, members have come and gone, but one thing remains true, and that's Lemmy's still rocking it up at the top.

This is far superior to their standard Inferno CD, and at a few pounds difference the extra investment is definitely worth it, as the DVD is jam packed full of extras, including interviews with most of the original and current band members, who will walk through the band's 30 years of glorious rock n' roll. During their 30th celebration the band also played 2 old favourites "(We are the) Road Crew" and, of course, "Bomber" so anyone not getting the DVD will be missing out big time.

Tracks to look out for on this CD are: Killers, Suicide, In the name of Tragedy, Keys to the Kingdom & In the Black. Motorhead fans (and ex-fans) shouldn't be reading this review, you hand should already be hovering over the "Add to Shopping Basket" button!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MIGHTY MOTORHEAD WERE MIGHTY INDEED!!! 30 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What an album, and what a show! The mighty motorhead pinned me to the floor once again in an ear bleeding quivering state of gibbering confusion. For all those lost in the wildness of life and in need of therapy, look no further, pull the curtains shut, turn the volume up, lie on the floor and press play---instant relief!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST WITH THE CURRENT LINE UP BY FAR!!!! 17 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
What an album! Every box ticked - songs, musicianship & production.
Previous releases were often mixed affairs; Hammered,We Are Motorhead - Good, and Overnight Sensation, Snake Bite Love - Ok but patchy.
This 2004 album is a killer from start to finish! Even the Joe Petagno cover art is one of the best in recent years, apparently a Motorhead version of Mars, God Of War. Indeed War & Death appear to be the central themes of the album - Lemmy excels himself lyrically.
Very much an out & out metal album, this is full of classic riffs, hot leads & VERY powerful drumming. Lemmy's vocals are some of his best ever , and will this guy EVER get the credit he deserves for his bass skills?!
Cameron Webb probably gives the album the best production Motorhead have ever had - its how a metal album should sound, - modern, clear & loud with a solid snare, thick, crunchy guitar & the bass turned up to 10.
My favourites are:
In The Name Of The Tragedy - Great bass chords, monstrous drums & just a great song with a great chorus! Very clever lyrics & vocals!
In The Black - Heavy yet insaneley catchy! stunning double bass drums at the end!
Fight - The album's heaviest? very urgent & more really heavy drums!
In The Name Of The Wolf - Classic mid-tempo 'Head, great lyrics from Lemmy and a great riff from Phil Campbell.
Down On Me - More great riffs!
Killers - One of the catchiest songs, Rock N Roll!
Terminal Show - Fast, guest solos from Steve Vai..
What is really great is the the order the songs are on the CD - everything flows just so! Track order is often neglected, even thrown together but definiteley not here!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Return to Form ! 26 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ok before i start i actually havn`t seen the DVD that comes with this album yet, i`m only reviewing the CD. As has been said in previous reviews the first three tracks out of this album show a welcome return to form !! "Terminal Show" opens the album fast paced & full of attitude, "Killers" has one of those great catchy Lemmy type chorus`s "In The Name Of The Tragedy" has one of those brilliant vocal deliveries that only Lemmy could do. "Suicide" " Lifes A Bitch" are both good to the latter having a great set of lyrics to it. "In The Black" "Fight" "Year Of The Wolf" have the feel of being fillers i`m afraid. "Keys To The Kingdom" returns to form with "Smiling Like A Killer" & "Whorehouse Blues" bringing up the rear. It says everything that i`ve had this album for 3 weeks now & still havn`t got round to playing the DVD yet ! Everytime i pick it up i think i`ll just play "Killers" again !!! & promptley play the whole album again !! Nuff Said !
