On Aug 28th 2015, legendary British rock ‘n’ roll trio Motörhead released their 22nd studio album Bad Magic which reached Top 10 on the Official Album Charts in 12 countries, including scoring #1 in Germany, Austria and Finland.
Produced by Cameron Webb, and recorded/mixed at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, CA, Bad Magic contains an unheard of, bumper-sized 13 tracks, comprising 12 Motörtunes and a truly epic cover of The Rolling Stones classic “Sympathy For The Devil”.
Bristling with thunderous attitude, and some of the fiercest rhythms and riffs that’ll assault your ears, Bad Magic demands that you fall to your knees and pray heartily that your senses don’t get completely pulverized, because big-rig head crushers like the totemic and Motöranthemic “Thunder and Lightning” show that Motörhead are as strong, mean, loud, relentless, uncompromising and goddam heavy as ever.
Drawing on their own vast catalogue of road-warrior freewheeling rock ‘n’ roll spirit, Bad Magic also strides confidently into some of the earlier attitudes of Motörmusic. There is the driving malevolence of “Choking On Your Screams” underscoring Lemmy in magnificently omnipotent vocal mood, “Electricity” carries a hefty chunk of punk attitude married with some of Phil Campbell’s best lead work yet, and “Shoot Out All of Your Lights” screams devilish, greasy, biker-born-screw-you-and-yours attitude, Mikkey Dee’s tribal drums pounding out a great path for more Kilmister proclamations.
