British Rock N’ Rollers, Motorhead have set the release date for early september! Finally something to look forward to! With a lot of album releases this year it’s best not to get your hopes up i would say, what with Metallica’s ‘Death Magnetic’ probably being a follow up to the dissapointing ‘St. Anger’ and Guns N’ Roses’ 15 year coming ‘Chinese Democracy’. Motorhead never fail to please, consistent is definatly a word to desscribe the haggered rockers. Though there have been minor surprises in the past, I can safely say that i will like this album. Just in time for the UK tour then!

So, when it was announced last year that the band would resurrect the best of those 80’s years and tour the world – the present ‘Somewhere Back In Time Tour’ – most Maiden fans felt as if they’d died and gone to the great metal gig in the sky. I for one was well chuffed!
