They’re Motörhead and they play rock ‘n’ roll. On Oct. 22, the legendary act will release ‘Aftershock,’ which is album No. 21 for Lemmy and the boys, but we’ve got an exclusive song premiere for you lucky, lucky people right now. Find the best pair of headphones or speakers you can get your hands on and listen below to our exclusive premiere of the ‘Aftershock’ track ‘Queen of the Damned.’
Motörhead have one of the largest discographies in hard rock / heavy metal history. Twenty-one albums add up to a staggering amount of music, but Motörhead’s ‘Aftershock’ is not watered-down at all. The British rockers have already unveiled the groove-heavy ‘Crying Shame’ along with the ballsy ‘Heartbreaker,’ and ‘Queen of the Damned’ provides a classic Motörhead sound while still sounding very fresh.
‘Queen of the Damned’ is a take-no-prisoners type of track. Frontman Lemmy Kilmister starts off the song with his instantly recognizable bass tone before guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee burst into the instantly addicting intro. The track chugs through at a perfect and near-relentless pace, which has been synonymous with Motörhead for nearly 40 years.
Motörhead fans, this is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. Lemmy, Phil and Mikkey do not disappoint in the slightest with ‘Queen of the Damned,’ so do yourself a favor and listen below to our exclusive premiere of Motörhead’s latest offering. If you dig what you hear, you can pre-order the new Motörhead album ‘Aftershock’ at Amazon or iTunes.
