Motörhead has been added to your Cart. Now remastered with added gut-wrenching bass, this debut album from Motörhead was cut in 1977 over a few speed-driven days at Escape Studio, and it shows. From the opening bass roar of the eponymous title track it is non-stop, relentless, churning, brain damaging, heavy rock 'n' roll. This is no ponderous heavy metal band fronted by some poodle-headed castrato - no, this is the real deal, down dirty and greasy and with its boots firmly rooted in rock 'n' roll. The eponymous title track is a raucous blast of hard rock that gets the head bobbing. Other top cuts are "White Line Fever" and the biker anthem "Iron Horse/Born To Lose. Sure, the band's subsequent releases "Overkill," "Bomber" and "Ace of Spades" would lay the groundwork for thrash metal, but Lemmy and co had to start somewhere.
Motörhead delivered its debut album to UA early in 1976, but the label rejected it. Shortly afterward, former Blue Goose and Continuous Performance guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke joined the band. Following one rehearsal as a four-piece, Wallis left the band, leaving Motörhead a trio; this is the lineup that would later be recalled as the group's classic period. Ace of Spades became Motörhead's first American album, but they were making little headway in the . where they only registered as a cult act. Back in England, the situation could hardly have been more different. He died two days later on December 28, 2015. The band's last record turned out to be a recording of two typically blistering sold-out shows at Munich's Zenith concert hall only a month prior to his death.
