Motorhead
Inferno (Metal-Is)

By: Mike SOS

Will Lemmy ever stop? The mighty machine known as Motorhead return with yet another indication of what a rock 'n' roll band should be. Loud, straightforward, and as punishing as ever, Inferno clocks in at nearly 50 minutes and goes 12 tracks deep, further fulfilling the legacy of the English power trio and its ascension to the pinnacle of the rock world. The outfit's stalwart slash and burn style is still very much alive and kicking; just check out the barn burning opener "Terminal Show", an explosive ass-kicker that boasts the lead guitar shred work of special guest Steve Vai. But at the end of the day, it's Lemmy, Phil, and Mikkey that unleash the firepower and comprise the all-important metallic punk institution that has been a staple in the metalhead's rotation for over 25 years, churning out righteous tunes like the stomping "Suicide" and the jack hammering "Fight". Not showing any signs of slowing down, Inferno is another successful chapter in the fine history of one of the most revered hard rock bands of all-time.
