5.0 out of 5 stars Has it really been 30 years?, 22 April 2007
This review is from: Inferno (30th Anniversary Cd+dvd) (Audio CD)
Yep, this is Motorhead's 30th Anniversary release, and what a corker it is.

With Inferno, it really sounds as if Motorhead have finally come of age. I know that sounds like a weird thing to say about a band who are now 30 years old, and a band that have probably been the hardest working in the last 30 years too, but that's what Inferno feels like to me. Lemmy has written some of the best lyrics of his career on this album, some of which give occasional nods to past albums and songs. Phil Campbell outshines Fast Eddie with some killer riffs and inspired lead work, and Mikkey ties the whole band together with some tight and brutal drumming, firmly stamping his name on the Motorhead drum riser. Of all the songs here, the real stand out tracks for me would be "In the Year of the Wolf", which has one of the best Motorhead riffs in ages, and is typically fast and heavy, "Killers" which is also fast and nasty and "In the Name of Tragedy" which is a real Motorheadbanger, but I'm not going to analyse every track, suffice to say that if you're into Motorhead, then you should know what to expect.

The DVD has some great interviews, my favourite being with Joe Petagno, who has designed the majority of Motorhead's album covers ever since creating "Snaggletooth" for the bands first album, and has appeared on just about every album since, in one guise or another.

Motorhead have still got it, and this album is worth every penny.
