An early slice of speed metal from 1979, Bomber is a must for any fan of Motorhead.
Still with the fullest, meanest production, Bomber is also as varied as it is entertaining, featuring live favourite, ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’.
This reissued CD features bonus track, 'Over the Top' and four blistering, live recordings culled from the Golden Years EP.
Demonstrating a slower pace than their previous two albums, Bomber features the same doom-laden riffs but with a more progressive pace, encompassing a more bluesy aspect rather than the out and out punk flavour of most of their albums.
Frontman ,em>Lemmy’s voice complements the music fantastically well - the gruff lament of ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ adding to a great set of lyrics concerning the life of a heroin addict.
‘Fast’ Eddie Clarke contributes some excellent solos on the title track ‘Bomber’ and ‘Stone Dead Forever’ – the slow repetition on the frets leading to an unearthly explosion of sound.
Eddie also gets a crack of the whip at the vocals on the song ‘Step Down’.
The brash style of Motorhead continues throughout the rest of the album but with more melody in the choruses than the previous two albums and of course Phil ‘filthy’ Taylor gives the proceedings a garage punk twist.
A classic album from the golden age of Motorhead.
