CD Review: Motorhead Look To "Clean Your Clock" One More Time With New Live Album

In late-December 2015, the heavy metal world took a big blow, when one of the godfathers of the genre passed away. Lemmy Kilmister was heavy metal; his music, his attitude, his behavior and especially his band. Motorhead roared on for 40 years until the passing of Lemmy and in that time they released 22 studio albums and 11 live albums. On May 27th, UDR Music will release one of the last Motorhead shows from their 2015 "Bad Magic Tour."

The new album titled "Clean Your Clock" features 16-tracks, beginning with the air raid sirens of "Bomber." The band (Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell) sound as energetic as ever, while Lemmy's vocals are smoother and less punchier than on earlier live albums. Campbell's guitar takes over "Metropolis," before Lemmy and the boys delivering "When The Sky Comes Looking For You," the only song performed off their latest studio album "Bad Magic." The Motorhead trio lock into the metal groove of "The Chase Is Better Than The Catch," then explode during "Lost Woman Blues." The song "Doctor Rock" was dedicated to the recent passing of former Motorhead drummer Phil Taylor, as Mikkey Dee showcases his talents on the skins. The album wraps up with the crowd favorite "Ace Of Spades," an acoustic version of "Whorehouse Blues" and an intense nine-minute version of "Overkill."

Heavy metal fans around the world will need this in their collection as one of the last true testaments of one of the greatest live band's of all time. To find out more about Motorhead's new "Clean Your Clock" live album, please visit
