British heavy metal gods Motörhead have released their 22nd studio album, Bad Magic. The LP contains twelve original new songs, and a cover of The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil" to close things out.
From Lemmy's opening yell on "Victory Or Die" to the last guitar note on "Sympathy For The Devil," Bad Magic finds Motörhead delivering brutal and punishing rock that grabs you and don't let go. Phil "Wizzö" Campbell's guitar shredding is relentless, and Mikkey Dee's drumming pounds like a 10.0 registered earthquake.
Motörhead have been creating high energy metal music since 1975, and this album furthers the band's legacy as the baddest in the land. Lemmy has gone through some health scares over the past couple years, but age nor time has taken an ill effect on this record. It's only sharpened the band's skills and allowed them to excel at their craft.
