Still Drenched With Adrenaline Today!
on 26 August 2008
If you are new to Motorhead, try and imagine a world with just the rumbling, dirt-encrusted, speed-freaked 'Motorhead' album on the Chiswick Records label; and then this one is released and you drop your stylus into the groove to hear this album for the very first time, and then, from the fabulous title track onwards, you will realise why Motorhead are the legends they are still today.
This album is power.
This album is the one which a million speed-metal bands were influenced by and took to playing in a band themselves.
This album is the die from which they all, including Metallica, were cast.
This album simply rips your head off and does a great big-jobby down the stump whether you want it to or not.
This album is the one your neighbours started banging on the wall about, screaming "Turn it down! It's too effing LOUD!"
This album, despite 'Ace Of Spades' now being regarded as a 'Classic' and beyond the 'Bomber' album into the band's future, is the one Motorhead set as their yardstick.
This album will also live to be set in stone and then be regarded as a 'Classic' in its' own right when the time arrives for 'Classic Album' DVD's to be made again.
This is the album which hasn't dated a day in its almost 30 year's existance. Just buy your copy now, the collection simply isn't complete without it!
