Motörhead has done it again with a new kick ass hard rock album. After 40 years of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbel, and Mickey Dee are still in top form and they proved it again with their 22nd album, “Bad Magic.”
Released on August 28, 2015 and coming off a very busy week, (Motörhead received Los Angeles City Council honors on August 26th) and Lemmy’s health issues, the new album is a shot in the arm all Motorhead fans needed.
“Bad Magic” includes 12 new songs and one cover of The Rolling Stones “Sympathy For The Devil” that has a Motorhead touch to it. Some of the songs that stand out are “Sympathy For The Devil,” “Electricity” “Victory or Die” and a ballad titled “Till The End,” in which Lemmy’s vocals are in no way damaged from his health issues.
The other songs on the album continue in the tradition of that classic Motörhead sound that makes this band still relevant in 2015. All the tracks on this new album are excellent and a must have for your collection.
