Rock icons Motörhead brought their signature prototype metal thrash to the Royal Oak Music Theater last night. Just as they promise, it was everything louder than everything else. The roughly hour and half set punched through early Motörhead classics and a few new tunes like "Get Back in Line" from the band's 20th release The Wörld Is Yours. The newer tunes however would be sparse as Motörhead after 36 years knows how to slam a show to a close--with quite possibly the two best songs in heavy metal history-- "Ace of Spades" and the encore of "Overkill." MT's Brett Callwood recently talked singer/bassist/general baddest man left on the planet Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister. Click the arrows for a fullscreen slide show of pictures from last nights show. Also check the trailer of Lemmy, which profiles the prolific frontman and only static member of one of rock's greatest acts.
