Motorhead - The World Is Yours

EMI International - February 8, 2011

by Malanie Falina

Motorhead - The World Is Yours"Rock N Roll is my religion; I don't need no miracle vision..." - Motorhead, "Rock N Roll Music"

...What quintessential lyrics for a tireless staple of heavy metal like Motorhead.

Each Motorhead release spanning the past three decades has been a package of gravel and grit, thrusting rock and roll, and controlled fury. The World Is Yours is no exception.

"Born To Lose" has the familiar raspy groove music fans have come to expect from Lemmy and company. "I Know How to Die" has got a great live-vibe with a hard hitting guitar solo, "Waiting For The Snake" is raw and cryptic, and "Brotherhood of Man" is pulsing moodiness.

"Get Back In Line," "Rock N Roll Music," "The Devil's In My Head," and "I Know What Your Need," are all hard-hitting metal anthems.

"Outlaw" is a great showcase song that reminds the listener that Lemmy is not the only rock star in this band. The guitar work is fierce and Mikkey Dee's drumming is solid and aggressive. The feel of this song alone can easily be the embodiment of Motorhead.

"Bye Bye Bitch" is another classic Motorhead tune dripping with vigorous cadence. This will be another fun one live.

The World Is Yours will be released on February 8, 2011, until then Motorhead is headed back out on to the road this month; their obligatory Chicago show will be February 19 at the Congress Theater. Clutch and Valient Thorr are opening.
