Performer Notes
  • The more things change, the more Lemmy stays the same. He is a pillar of stability in the wobbly world of metal, where bands and trends come and go. Almost every Mot”rhead album sounds like the last, albeit with a couple new twists thrown in. And that's not a bad thing. Indeed, this 2004 platter serves up the expected blend of thrashers, midtempo grinders, and amped-up, old-time rock & roll, but Inferno feels like the group's spark has been rekindled. The most obvious infusion of energy comes from guest guitarist Steve Vai, who whips out his signature shredding technique on the thundering, rapid-fire "Terminal Show" and the sludgy "Down on Me." To Vai's credit, the legendary axeman adapts to Mot”rhead's style instead of showboating. Other surprises surface -- the melodic guitar leads of "Keys to the Kingdom" set over a bed of strings without bass or drums, and the acoustic blues ditty with harmonica ("Whorehouse Blues") that brings Inferno to a refreshingly low-key finish. The longest running line-up in Mot”rhead's history proves that old dogs may not always learn new tricks, but they can reinvent the old ones just fine.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.126) - 3 stars out of 5 - "INFERNO blazes ahead with the same full-bodied attack as on their early classics..."

Spin (p.108) - "12 remorseless slabs of punk-metal blues..." - Grade: B+

Alternative Press (p.132) - 4 out of 5 - "[P]ut it up against any screamo, hardcore or nu-metal...and the dividing line between the men and the boys comes into sharp focus."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[With] Lemmy's ever present rasp of defiance arriving over a collection of decent, sometimes very decent, rock'n'roll. There are tinges of the blues here, of punk and of metal..."
