Motörhead, is a long-lived and iconic British heavy metal band formed in 1975 by former roadie for Jimi Hendrix, bassist, singer and songwriter Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister. They are widely recognized as progenitors of thrash & speed metal, a fusion of heavy metal and what was soon to become hardcore punk. Consequently they influenced countless rock, punk rock, and heavy metal bands that followed. Usually a power trio, Motörhead had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40 chart. The albums Overkill, its follow on, Bomber, Ace of Spades, and particularly No Sleep ‘til Hammersmith, cemented Motörhead’s reputation as one of Britain’s foremost heavy metal groups. While Motörhead are typically classified as heavy metal, speed metal or thrash metal (and often regarded as a foundational influence on the latter two styles); Lemmy dislikes such labels, preferring to describe the band’s music simply as “Rock and Roll”…
ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge. In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.
Death Metal meets Hard Rock on the new Debauchery vs. Blood God album! Welcome to the world of Blood Gods! Debauchery has always been unique. Those who couldn't or wouldn't accept and understand it, were kindly asked to **** off. There's one thing the band offers for everyone who's still there: Death Metal straight in your face! Blood God is the Heavy Metal/Hard Rock offshoot of Debauchery. Judas Priest, Accept, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, AC/DC - these bands were the reason why the Blood Gods started playing music. Blood God have a Debauchery feel to them, but everything's still a bit more different: a little bit more Heavy Metal and a lot more Rock 'n' Roll!
Intertwined amond punk, hard rock, heavy metal or, as Lemmy himself has claimed, in the most classic rock n'roll, Motorhead has created a unique and recognizable sound right from the start. Motorhead is a true original band. Like The Ramones or AC / DC, they have created a sub-genre by themselves. The Many Faces Of Motorhead is a new volume in the successful and fascinating series The Many Faces, which digs into the inner world of Motorhead, highlighting their roots, their side projects, his rarest recordings and his legacy. The Many Faces of Motorhead is an entertaining 3XCD album, a wild ride through the existence of one of the most significant bands of the world of rock & roll.
