Built For Speed

A Mötörhead Tribute compilation


At long last, a tribute to one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands ever, Mötörhead — much praise to Victory for getting its shit together. Of particular note: With a song as immortal as “Ace Of Spades,” hardly anyone can fuck it up, thus, Blood For Blood does the deed with considerable big-cocked aplomb and all the burliness the Boston brutes are known for; same goes for the eternal “Motorhead,” given a fully gassed ‘n’ gonzo treatment by (formerly R.E.O.) Speedealer; Integrity chugs its way through “Orgasmatron” with the utmost evil, and frontman Dwid sounds, well, like Dwid kareoke-ing Lemmy — hair-raising, to say the very least, giving the original serious competition for superiority. Performances range from excellent (Electric Frankenstein’s “We Are the Road Crew,” Zeke’s “I’ll Be Your Sister,” Dropkick Murphys’ “Rock and Roll,”) to forgettable (Skarhead’s “Sweet Revenge,” Fahrenheit 451’s “No Class,” Groovie Ghoulies’ “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.”). Nonetheless, Victory’s giving “the kids” a much-warranted history lesson, so that there will be less Earth Crisis rip-offs in the future.
