It is crunch time right now, and I've been working hard over the past month to catch up with my backlog of 2013 releases before the year end. Plus, when I saw that Marcus was posting daily, I made it my mission to try to keep up with him. I fell a little short of his production, but I've made some serious progress this month. I still have 13 more posts lined up...and a few more new releases scheduled to arrive in the coming weeks...so I can't let up now. I've got to keep churning them out if I have any hope of catching up before January.
Lemmy is closing in on his 68th birthday, and it was a tough year, healthwise, for him. So you've got to give him a ton of respect for still being able to turn out another great Rock/Metal record.
Motorhead doesn't change their formula for Aftershock, although there are a couple of bluesy tracks included on this one, and Lemmy sounds as solid and as raw as ever. There is no such thing as a bad Motorhead record.
Aftershock has one of my favorite Motorhead album covers of all time, and the "amber" colored vinyl looks amazing as well.
