Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Motörhead facebook timeline:

ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old-fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

Under Cöver will be released on September 1st, 2017.

Motörhead Under Cöver – Track Listing:

  1. Breaking the Law (Judas Priest) 2008
  2. God Save the Queen (The Sex Pistols) 2000
  3. Heroes (David Bowie) 2015
  4. Starstruck (Rainbow) 2014
  5. Cat Scratch Fever (Ted Nugent) 1992
  6. Jumpin’ Jack Flash (The Rolling Stones) 2001
  7. Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones) 2015
  8. Hellraiser (Ozzy Osbourne) 1992
  9. Rockaway Beach (Ramones) 2002
  10. Shoot ‘Em Down (Twisted Sister) 2001
  11. Whiplash (Metallica) 2005

LONG LIVE THE LEGACY OF MOTÖRHEAD.

REST IN PEACE, LEMMY, PHILTHY and WURZEL.

Lemmy Kilmister Of Motörhead – Rest In Peace, Our Metal Icon

Posted in classic rock, Metal with tags , , , , on December 28, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Lemmy Kilmister - publicity - cooking promo

As reported on the Official Motörhead Facebook:

There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words.

We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. 
Have a drink or few.

Share stories.

Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.

HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.

Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister

1945 -2015

Born to lose, lived to win.

Please feel free to post your condolences, well wishes and memories here:

Stone Says: Tremendously sad news. Goodbye, Lemmy. Thank you for the Rock ‘N Roll. I will forever spread the word of Motörhead. The Metal and Rock ‘N Roll world will truly never be the same without Lemmy.

Motorhead - The Best Of - promo album cover pic - #MO33MDFNLSSMS3939

I’ll never forget seeing Motörhead for the first time live, it was one of my most magical Metal moments I’ve experienced, back in the mid 80’s. I saw concert fans tussle and struggle to take ownership of Lemmy’s cigarette butt; one in which he flicked into the crowd. I watched Lemmy play bass and sing Killed By Death, Jailbait and Ace Of Spades, only 20 or so feet away from me, in an overcrowded West Hartford Ballroom, in West Hartford, Connecticut. Slayer later headlined. With a couple of minor bruises, I stunk of cigarette smoke, sweat and beer after leaving that show. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Former MOTÖRHEAD Drummer PHIL “PHILTHY ANIMAL” TAYLOR – REST IN PEACE

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , on November 12, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Motorhead - Stones Book - #MO33777LKPAFEC

Shown above: A Motörhead book I own, chronicling the classic era of Motörhead. From L to R: Lemmy Kilmister, Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor and “Fast” Eddie Clarke.

__________________________

As reported on the Official Motörhead Facebook:

Lil’ Philthy…he who once shouted ‘stop wincing about’ on an album…he who fueled many a young boy’s punk/metal hairstyles…he who played the drums with fury and intent…he who liked to call people ‘wazzocks’ once in a while…friend, Roman, Derbyshireman…rest in peace…with much love…

Stone Says:

The staff of Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, Motörhead and friends of Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor.

Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor has now joined Michael Burston aka Würzel up in Rock ‘N Roll Heaven, as the only two Motörhead family members that have passed away way too young. This influential drummer played on a  dozen or so (proper) Motörhead albums and is regarded as a true legend of Rock ‘N Roll by countless fans and peers. I never did get to see Philthy Animal Taylor play live and that is unfortunate. I saw Motörhead in concert after the classic era of this iconic band.

I remember my very first taste of Motörhead was a live bootleg recording of the band; a recording I cherished on a beaten up 8 track tape back around 1982 or so. I never heard anything so awful and yet so wonderful in my life, courtesy of that messed up 8 track. From then on, it has been a love affair I have for Motörhead that I can never let go of.

Above: Motörhead Ace Of Spades studio album from 1980. Shown L to R: Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, Lemmy Kilmister and “Fast” Eddie Clarke, the classic era of Motörhead.

As I write this post, one of my favorite Motörhead songs of all-time has begun to play in my brain: One Track Mind. I guess I always assumed that Rock Gods like Philthy Animal Taylor would live forever, it’s always that way for me, unfortunately. Philthy Animal Taylor will live on though, through those classic era Motörhead albums and his musical works that followed.

REST IN PEACE, PHIL “PHILTHY ANIMAL” TAYLOR.

LONG LIVE MOTÖRHEAD.

Metal Odyssey’s Top 20 Metal Albums Of 2013

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal bands, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on January 2, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Stryper - No More Hell To Pay - promo cover pic

#1

STRYPER – No More Hell To Pay

Stryper gave to their fans, arguably their best studio album ever. With added pristine touches of relevant heaviness, melodies and goose bump inducing vocal harmonies, Stryper delivered 12 top-tier songs with No More Hell To Pay. This inspiring Metal album from Stryper is not just #1 for 2013, it’s an audio personal power tool, here at the Metal Odyssey headquarters. Metal be thy name.

Stryper - promo band pic - #77 - 2013

______________________________

Admittedly, this year’s Metal album releases were enormously better than I ever expected. From the underground Metal bands to those Metal     bands breaking onto the mainstream charts, our Metal family had a victorious and flourishing year that I was proud to promote and cheer about!

2013 saw more legendary Metal bands creating quality music and career defining albums than I’ve ever seen before. The Metal comebacks of Carcass, Witch Cross, Satan and Gorguts (to name a few) are eye-popping to me! I could never be more proud, as a fan.

In my Metal world, I could easily add another 20 albums from 2013 to this list! Regardless, I present to you, Metal Odyssey’s Top 20 Metal Albums Of 2013! I sincerely believe, that each album here is a solid-as-steel piece of art and a true representation of the respective band’s talents and Metal sub-genre that they belong to.

I thank and congratulate each band on this list. Without these bands and their albums, life would undeniably super suck. Metal be thy name.

Motorhead - Aftershock - promo cover pic

#2

MOTÖRHEAD – Aftershock

Easily can be described as a return to what made Motörhead the true Rock ‘N Roll legends they are. One of the best Motörhead albums in their entire iconic catalog. Lemmy, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee are, in my opinion, the greatest power trio alive today.

Carcass - Surgical Steel - promo cover pic

#3

CARCASS – Surgical Steel

Carcass returned in 2014. No, I correct myself. Carcass returned with a Metal vengeance in 2014. Just this 1 Carcass album alone makes them ultra legendary. Not one moment on Surgical Steel can be missed. Mesmerizing Metal is Surgical Steel. Amazing stuff.

BLACK SABBATH - 13 - large promo cover pic - 2013 - #3

BLACK SABBATH – 13

Even without the legendary Bill Ward on drums, 13 from Black Sabbath still sounds mega-legendary from this iconic Metal band.

Above review posted on June 16, 2013, on Metal Odyssey.

Sodom - Epitome Of Torture - promo cover pic

#5

SODOM – Epitome Of Torture

I mentioned here on Metal Odyssey during 2013 that SODOM’s Epitome Of Torture is one of the best of Thrash Metal albums I’ve ever listened to. This album is pummeling, raw and in-your-face Thrash Metal, done the old school way.

Soulfly - Savages - promo cover pic!

#6

SOULFLY – Savages

Metal warrior Max Cavalera brought in his son Zyon on drums – and with the super talents of Marc Rizzo (guitars) and Tony Campos (bass), Savages is (yet again) another explosive Metal album from Soulfly!

WitchCross-CoverArt-DimitarNikolov.psd

#7

WITCH CROSS – Axe To Grind

Easily, the comeback band and album of 2013. Witch Cross dug deep into their musical Metal roots and captured Metal lightning in a 6-pack! Unreal good songs and new vocalist Kev Moore soars! An instant Metal classic, the instant I listened to Axe To Grind.

Satan - Life Sentence - promo cover pic - 2013

SATAN – Life Sentence

SATAN accomplished quite the Metal comeback of their own with Life Sentence. SATAN returned to remind us all that they are an important part of Heavy Metal history and Life Sentence is audio proof of that.

Sinister Realm - World Of Evil - promo cover pic

SINISTER REALM – World Of Evil

Allentown, Pennsylvania’s Sinister Realm are a Metal band that YOU need to be aware of; cause their Metal is in the same class as the 2 above mentioned bands and World Of Evil is a beacon for True Metal.

SINISTER REALM “WORLD OF EVIL” = METAL FANTASTICAL!

Warbeast - Destroy - promo cover pic

#10

WARBEAST –  Destroy

The legendary (vocalist) Bruce Corbitt fronts WARBEAST; a band with a Texas-sized sound of blazing, furious and brain sizzling Thrash Metal! DESTROY is the second studio album from WARBEAST and its title aptly describes the wholesome goodness of what you’ll hear.

Satyricon - Self-Titled - promo cover pic

#11 (Tie)

SATYRICON – S/T

Yes, Satyricon took a detour and released a diverse album in 2013; only this S/T package of songs STILL delivers a Blackened atmosphere, mood, feel and vibes which are all worthy of making this listener to do exactly that… listen. Rest assured, the Blackened heaviness is here as well.

Skeletonwitch - Serpents Unleashed - promo cover pic

#11 (Tie)

SKELETONWITCH – Serpents Unleashed 

These Ohio Blackened Thrash troublemakers aka SKELETOWITCH have done it again; they’ve created another face-ripping Metal album that if played at maximum level, could very well move planet Earth off of its axis and fuck everything up.

Five Finger Death Punch - Wrong Side Of Heaven - Volume 1 - promo coverFive Finger Death Punch - wrong side of heaven volume 2 - promo cover

#12

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH

It’s simple. Five Finger Death Punch released a one-two punch to their fans and most likely recruited 200 million more fans along the way. It’s too difficult to choose Volume 1 or Volume 2, therefore, Metal Odyssey’s staff and I say: It’s a Metal draw! FFDP honestly kicks incredible ass on both albums!

Gorguts - Colored Sands - promo cover pic

#13

GORGUTS – COLORED SANDS

Hail to another Metal comeback in 2013! GORGUTS returned as well and Colored Sands is a Metal triumph! Guitarist and Vocalist Luc Lemay has mystically made Classical Music sound and feel like… Metal. This is a top-tier Death Metal album and band that shall stand the test of time.

Helloween - Straight Out Of Hell - promo cover pic!

#14

HELLOWEEN – Straight Out Of Hell

HELLOWEEN don’t need to keep proving that their the Power Metal kings; still they do once again with Straight Out Of Hell. Released back in January of 2013, this Helloween album even includes superb tributes to the late Jon Lord and Freddie Mercury.

Horlet - The Keys Of Life And Death - promo cover

#15

HORLET – The Keys Of Life And Death

HORLET is an unsigned, DIY Metal band from the grand Metal state of Ohio. HORLET’s The Keys Of Life And Death is a Melodic Death Metal prize. Trust Stone when I say: HORLET is the real Metal deal.

Korn - The Paradigm Shift - promo cover pic - 2013

#20

KORN – The Paradigm Shift

KORN returned with a back to KORN basics Metal sound, while welcoming back Brian “Head” Welch on guitar, on The Paradigm Shift. This album has been a contagious listen for me and is, in my Metal opinion, an album that substantiates why KORN is a world-class Metal band since day one. Metal be thy name.

Compiling My 2013 Best Metal Albums List Has Put Me In A Metal Quandary!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on December 28, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Carcass - Surgical Steel - promo cover pic

CARCASS – Surgical Steel

For the past month, I’ve been listening to, re-listening to and debating over which albums will make my “Best Metal Albums Of 2013” list. For clear reasons (to me) this year marks the most difficult time I’ve ever encountered, in compiling this list. I’m in a quandary!! Someone call Dr. Phil or better yet, someone call Black SabbathMotörhead, Carcass, Sodom, Stryper, Satyricon and Satan and tell them ALL they should have never released such amazing milestone Metal albums; especially ALL at once this past year! Um, please, no one tell them that.

Throw in the fact that Witch Cross and Sinister Realm are in the mix with spellbound like True Metal releases in 2013 and I’m on my knees begging for the Metal Gods to help me sort it all out!! Which band’s album gets #1 and why? Which band’s album comes in last on my best of list and for what reason? Rankings super SUCK and I have the urge right now to eat a case of Doritos. Can anyone please kick me in the ass and tell me to stop!?

Motorhead - Aftershock - promo cover pic

Motörhead – Aftershock 

Adding to this quandary, is: I believe that any album that makes any “Best Of” album list of mine, equates to either an instant classic or soon to be classic, within our beloved pages of Metal History; at least my pages of Metal History! All of this self-debate and (at times) self-doubt over which best Metal albums I’ve listened to over the year is very important to me. I need a very cold beer right now, from my very cold garage.

Stay tuned. My Metal list will be done eventually. Stone will come through. Hell, my “Best Hard Rock Albums Of 2013” list is already secured in my brain. For some crazy reason, the Hard Rock albums list never drove me even remotely insane. My “Top Ten Songs Of 2013” list went down easier than a Yuengling lager. Go figure. Best Metal Buddy, Scott Coverdale, already has his Best list done and ready to go. I know he struggled with it, though. Ha, ha. Still, he’s the best.

I gather it’s time for me to stop whining and get back to my Metal debate with myself. Once this fun task is complete, I can then begin to listen to what 2014 has in store for my Metal hunger… and look forward to another quandary such as this in a year from now. Metal be thy name.

Motörhead “Aftershock” – Releasing On October 21st; November/December Tour Dates Announced

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock news, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock and roll, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 4, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Motorhead - Aftershock - promo cover pic

As reported on the Facebook of Motörhead:

Like the juggernaut you prayed would keep on crushing you, like the friend that still royally pisses off your parents and like a loyal standard of crunchy, greasy, punky, bluesy, gutsy screw-you rock’n’roll, Motörhead stride out through their 38th year brandishing more swagger and attitude then your ears could begin to comprehend.

On Oct 21st, 2013 Motörhead will deliver their 21st studio album, an enormous and prophetic Aftershock. Recorded at NRG Studios in North Hollywood,it is a true leveler, a crushing confirmation of everything Motörhead stands for, marching from the dust storm to deliver 14 belting statements which see Motörhead in perhaps their best writing form for years. There’s swagger, there’s punch, there’s speed and there’s dirty filthy grooves, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee showing clearly that Motörhead is not simply a band, it’s a genre!

That genre, more than ever, resonates with hearty independence and swashbuckle. Whether it’s “Heartbreaker” throwing hooks and riffs into your head, the double-kick concussiveness of “Paralyzed” with Campbell’s fuelled attack, or the thunderous ride-off-the-Rickenbacker Motörcharge of “Going To Mexico”, Aftershock takes gleeful twists and turns which re-announce the Motörlegend. There’s the smokey biker bar blues in the shape of “Dust And Glass”, Lemmy’s late-night vocals evoking last-call and melancholy, the pogo-powered punk-spiked stab of “Queen Of The Damned” and the deliciously steamy, humid mournful “Lost Woman Blues” which midway through decides to kick over the stool and stomp out the saloon door.

Motorhead - Aftershock - promo cover pic

“Steal it if you must, buy it if you can!” says Lemmy, who’s pride in the album is so immense that guests to his home and dressing room in the last couple of months have been treated to extremely loud airings of the rough mixes, while Phil Campbell adds, “I really think the variation on the album shows that we’ve dug deep and produced some of our best work for a long time.”

“It is,” says Mikkey Dee, “a really, really strong Motörhead album, one that really does define everything this band stands for.”

He’s not wrong. Because Motörhead are Motörhead are Motörhead…and their Aftershock will be felt worldwide…

Attention:

Classic Rock, UK presents Motörhead’s ‘Aftershock’ as a limited edition fanpack which features the new album in full plus a 132 page magazine that forms the ‘ultimate sleevenotes’ to the new album, with extensive and exclusive interviews with Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee.

Motörhead “We Are Motörhead” – Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on May 20, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Motorhead - We Are Motorhead - promo cover pic

Motörhead – One of the greatest Rock N’ Roll bands in the world; or that ever existed for that matter. Oh, that’s my Metal opinion. I’m talking about Motörhead and on this Monday, May 20th, I Metal declare that:

We Are Motörhead is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Okay, now that’s out-of-the-way. Motörhead has released (at least) 20 (official) studio albums over the course of 5 decades; with countless live and compilation albums to their unparalleled credit. Whoa. This legendary band can’t be stopped nor contained and I’m very grateful for their existence.

With lineup changes comes the different eras of Motörhead; only each era is essentially still… Motörhead. At its core with founding member, bassist, vocalist and the forever iconic Lemmy Kilmister is the epitome of dirty, rotten, who-gives-a-shit Rock N’ Roll. That’s what Motörhead was, is and forever will be all about, my fellow Metal brethren.

We Are Motörhead (released back in 2000) may not be better than their classics released during the ’70’s; only We Are Motörhead is better than their last 2 studio albums. Yup, that’s my Metal opinion again. Take my Metal word for it and cash it in, We Are Motörhead is an endless experience of getting your brains ROCKED OUT and it has served me right; time and again it has.

Motorhead - We Are Motorhead - promo cover pic

With the title track, Stay Out Of Jail, Out To Lunch, One More Fucking Time and Stagefright / Crash & Burn, the song titles are 500% Motörhead with the fired-up Rock N’ Roll to back ’em all up! Yes, you read that correctly, I stated: 500%. There’s an old school appeal to this Motörhead album and it’s as delectable to me as 1983’s Another Perfect Day. It doesn’t even matter if Lemmy croons like no tomorrow on One More Fucking Time; the song still kick’s ass despite the tempo.

The Punk flavoring that Motörhead’s catalog of albums can be (many times) noted for is quite present on We Are Motörhead; with the Sex Pistols 1977 iconic song God Save The Queen being covered by Lemmy and his rabid crew. A grand cover it is! Just listening to Lemmy sing this song is Rockin’ righteous and ring that Punk will never die bell.

So there y’all have it. We Are Motörhead is a worthy addition to any Metalhead’s or Rockaholic’s album collection. Motörhead Forever. Metal be thy name.

Stone’s Relocation Files: Part One – My METAL Head Is Spinning!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, living, Metal, metal music, Music, people, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on February 8, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Motorhead - The World Is Ours Vol 2 - promo cover pic!

As I have expressed on both Metal Odyssey and twitter during the past month of January, my family and I have relocated to Ohio. Ohio ROCKS. I’m not just saying that cause I’ve been living here in a hotel for about 8 days now; in fact, every person I’ve met in this grand state thus far is downright friendly. Stone digs that. Meeting new people and experiencing new places is what life is all about. Metal be thy name and ring that relocation bell!

Within these next 24 hours, our official status of becoming residents of Ohio will be solidified; as we move into our new home. With a new home comes (the possibility of) no immediate internet access; resulting in a temporary burp in Metal coverage you are used to reading and seeing on Metal Odyssey. Have no fear, I have purposely scheduled some (very cool) posts that will run through the third week of February (just in case the internet is not installed/delivered to our residence in a timely fashion). I truly hope you dig what I’ve got in store for you with these Rockin’ posts too!

____________________________________________

By now you must be asking: Stone, why is that album cover for Motörhead The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 2: Anyplace Crazy, As Anywhere Else at the top of this post? I answer: this CD is one of the first I’ve purchased while living here in Ohio. I found this Motörhead CD at Best Buy. Plus, I couldn’t resist tying in the title of this double live Motörhead album with this post. Anyplace Crazy, As Anywhere Else… that’s what relocation is all about. Nuff’ said.

There are so many little and big things to accomplish when you relocate! My Metal head is spinning! No, I’m not kidding! Okay, after that crybaby outburst, I want to thank each and every visitor (both casual and loyal) to Metal Odyssey for understanding there may be a lapse in normal action in the coming days. Hopefully the internet arrives to our new home quickly and I can breathe a sigh of relief! In the meantime… keep on Rockin’ with no sign of stoppin’!

Back on January 2nd, I wrote about the relocation that would be taking place in the live’s of my family and I. You can read all about it by clicking that handsome link below! Whoa!

Relocation Is On The Horizon For Stone… What’s Next For Metal Odyssey?

Happy METAL Birthday To… Stone! Metal Be Thy Name!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on January 26, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Motorhead - The Birthday Party - album promo cover pic!

Stone’s METAL Birthday – Today is Saturday, January 26th and it’s… my birthday! Happy METAL Birthday to me! WHOA!

I won’t actually reveal how old I am. However, here are some hints:

I’m younger than Gene Simmons.

I’m older than Chris Daughtry.

By the way, doesn’t that Motörhead birthday cake (pictured at top) look really… METAL or what! That’s the album cover for Motörhead The Birthday Party. It’s a live Motörhead album released back in 1990.

I’ll be celebrating my METAL Birthday by listening to METAL and preparing for my relocation to Ohio (aka The Buckeye State). No crazy or huge party for Stone. Maybe next year, when things aren’t so unbelievably busy in my life.

Back on April 13, 2010, I posted up a very, very cool article/review (which I wrote) about Motörhead The Birthday Party. You can read all about it, if you like, by clicking on the link below! Whoa!

MOTORHEAD – “THE BIRTHDAY PARTY” ALBUM FROM 1990 THAT’S LIVE AND OUT OF PRINT!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Würzel – As has been reported by numerous and credible Rock media sources in the past 24 hours, the news of Würzel (Michael Burston) passing away is sad to share. This sad news first broke on Tim Butcher’s facebook page on Saturday, July 9, 2011. Tim Butcher has been a longtime bass tech for Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. No official statement has been made as of yet.

The former Motörhead guitarist was 61 years old. Würzel’s current band was Leader Of Down. Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, friends, bandmates and fans of Würzel. God bless Würzel and may he rest in peace.

Würzel appeared on seven studio albums while with Motörhead, (1984-1995), with No Remorse (1984) being the first.
