Motörhead returns to the WSVNRadio website this week, with
Meltdown -- an album of rare studio and live tracks. Meltdown
was included as part of a box set of 4 original albums --
Overkill (1979), Bomber (1979),
Ace Of Spades (1980), and No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith (1981).
Motörhead's music has been classified as Hard Rock, Heavy Metal,
Hard Core, Thrash/Speed Metal, and maybe even Alternative. Their music is
also NOT for sensitive ears; in concerts, the decibel level is no more than
126 -- LOUD Rock & Roll. Lemmy (Ian Kilmister) has been the frontman since
he formed Motörhead after leaving the band Hawkwind in 1975, and they
are still recording and performing today.
The first 6 songs on Meltdown are studio tracks. "Turn You Round
Again" is ultimately heavy-metal in sound. Lemmy's obscure vocals is the
focus on "Under The Knife I," likewise it's loud hard rock. It's sequel,
"Under The Knife II" is a good example of speed metal -- fast, loud,
And talk about LOUD -- their remake of the country classic "Stand By
Your Man" (Tammy Wynette) is another example of loud, blistering Rock.
It also has a hardcore punk rock sound to it as well. Playing this one loud
will definitely effect the listener's hearing availability.
"Emergency" is probably considered the least track in the loud,
blistering rock as previous songs, yet "Lemmy Goes To The Pub" returns
with the speed-metal sound -- fast, loud, and blistering.
The remaining 7 tracks are from live performances. And to sum them all up,
they all have one thing in common: They are all loud, ear-splitting,
speed-metal rockers. The most interesting track from the live set, is their
version of Muddy Waters' "Hoochie Coochie Man," having a more hard rock
edge rather than the common blues sound which made Muddy Waters (and many others
who performed this track) famous.
As mentioned before, the music of Motörhead is not for everyone's ears.
Playing loud enough, it will definitely effect anyone's hearing abilities.
I can only imagine how that becomes effective at any Motörhead concert,
without wearing earplugs. Of course, music is mostly enjoyed loud, as most
people enjoy their favorite music being just that. After hearing Motörhead's
music (whether loud or at a medium level), your ears will definitely receive
a meltdown aftermath.
