MOTORHEAD - Set Their Own Rules On 'Inferno'
MOTÃâRHEAD will be releasing "Inferno", their first album of new material
since 2002's "Hammered", on June 22 through Metal-Is Records, a division
of the Sanctuary Records Group.
"This album is real musicians playing real music. There were no rules,"
Lemmy said in a press release.
Guitar legend Steve Vai makes a guest appearance on the tracks "Terminal
Show" and "Down on Me". According to MOTÃâRHEAD frontman Lemmy, Vai's involvement
was the result of a casual social encounter with Lemmy at the famous Rainbow
Bar & Grill in Hollywood.
"I was going in and he was coming out and we ran into each other. I told
him we were recording and invited him down to sit in. He took me up on the
offer," Lemmy said.
MOTÃâRHEAD has a distinctive musical style Ã¢â¬â nobody grinds out a furious
rock 'n' roll hybrid of heavy metal and punk like this band. But Lemmy always
has a few tricks up his sleeve, and MOTÃâRHEAD albums tend to have a song
or two that veer away from their trademark sound. On "Inferno" the honor
belongs to the slinky "Whorehouse Blues", appropriately drenched in bluesy
acoustic guitar and harmonica.
"I like to surprise people," said Lemmy.
MOTÃâRHEAD will promote "Inferno" with yet another world tour this year.
"Inferno" is an enhanced CD. The enhancement will allow fans to sign up
for MOTÃâRHEAD Internet service at www.motorheadrules.com.
