Motorhead Motorizer (SPV) Many may talk about the Rolling Stones' longevity, but creeping on up in age and losing absolutely none of his power and range is Lemmy Kilmister, bassist and general growler for Motorhead. At the age of 62, he's still the general mastermind behind what's now an LA-based trio, who can more than hold their own against any heavy rock act on the planet three decades down the line. On their 19th album Motorizer, Kilmister still sounds as if he's eating razor blades for breakfast as his gruff vocals ring out loud and clear on all 11 tracks. Detractors could readily point out that Motorhead haven't moved much past their throttling 1980s apex, but there are certainly more colours in their arsenal. With the seamless production of Cameron Webb (Social Distortion, Limp Bizkit), Philip Campbell's guitars sound gloriously crisp and Kilmister barks like he's the devil's personal henchman. Over the course of an album, it all begins to sound like a relentless, adrenaline-fuelled Panzer tank, but there are terrific highlights. On Teach You How to Sing the Blues, Kilmister steam-rolls through a lively metallic boogie. Rock Out, a clear Ace of Spades update, employs fuzz guitar and a drumming speed that defies reason. English Rose, sure to become a live favourite, chugs along swiftly and surely while Kilmister details the delights of a 'great nasty girl'. With a release like this and a documentary due early next year, Kilmister is showing the young turks how it's done. While Keith Richards is said to survive on regular blood transfusions, all Lemmy needs is a microphone, bass and the sound of turbo-charged rock to keep rolling.
