First re-release of the twentieth full-length studio album by legendary British Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band.
The first Motörhead's album to chart in the US. As with all their albums since 2004's "Inferno", it was produced, mixed and engineered by Cameron Webb in California. Though the bands spend most of the year somewhere on tour together anyway, Philip and Mikkey have mostly recorded in the US when doing Motörhead albums, as Lemmy doesn't really travel unless touring since relocating. His age and health eventually made this the norm for the band, and so this album was done the same as the last few, with a few weeks over a few months practicing, then into the studio for recordings.
"Motorizer" never pretends to be groundbreaking, but it is an engagingly predictable album. "Motörizer" avoids the bland Hard Rock that larded up some of the band's recent records. Instead, its 11 tracks efficiently clock in at under 39 minutes. Lemmy turned 63 that year, but he still sounded half his age.
The album reached number 32 on the UK Albums Chart, making it the band's highest-charting album in the UK since "1916" in 1991. The album debuted on Billboard chart at No. 82. It peaked at No. 2 on the UK Rock & Metal chart, and at No. 5 on the German Offizielle Top 100 & US Independent charts. As with the band's last few albums, it did not make a massive impact on the public, but saw dedicated sales in markets where they had a strong following.
