Motorhead - Hammered (20th Anniversary, Gold and Black Splatter Vinyl)
On 9th April 2002 Motorhead released their 16th studio album, Hammered. This was the third album recorded by the trio of Lemmy, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee. Lyrically the album took on darker subject matter and had a reflective tone, the band quoting that it was influenced by the 9/11 terror attacks.
Since 1975 Motorhead - spearheaded by the grungy, iconic British metalhead Lemmy Kilmister - has been churning out speedy, macho, aggro anthems, including Ace of Spades, Killed by Death, and Eat the Rich. The phrases "trendy" or "critical favourites" have never been attached to the Grammy-nominated band, and Hammered isn't the record to change Motorhead's anti establishment standing. The 11-song outing will, however, satiate longtime fans. The power trio rages - complete with piercing guitar solos and double-bass drums - on the urgent and winning Brave New World, and is only slightly more mainstream on Walk a Crooked Mile, which boasts melodic choruses and backup vocals, and crunchy rhythms matched with Lemmy's trademark gruff, guttural talk-singing. Lemmy's no sex symbol, and it's disquieting to hear him sing somewhat romantic lyrics on Dr. Love and Mine All Mine.
The songs like No Remorse and Voices from the War seem more suited to the singer-bassist's brusque persona. In fact, Hammered's most definitive Motorhead-esque cut is probably the bloody Red Raw, which will give all but the most practiced headbangers whiplash.

How We Ship Vinyl
As vinyl collectors ourselves, we're very concerned with the way that our favorite online record stores ship vinyl. Our goal is to always be as good as the very best, so we've invested a lot into the process.
All vinyl records we sell are brand new and factory-sealed.
What We Do
- We inspect every record when it arrives checking for any damage like bent corners, seam splits, and creases. Those records are flagged, set aside, and are only offered as damaged in our shop.
- We ship all vinyl with the WHIPLASH V03 mailer considered by many the best vinyl record mailers in the world.
What We Don't Do
- Unfortunately at the moment, we do not ship internationally. We hope to offer international shipping in 2022.
- We do not recommend package-forwarding companies. If you are outside the United States and decide to order from us using a package-forwarding company, we only guarantee delivery to the shipping address you've provided. Once delivered to that address by the USPS or UPS, WE ARE NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PACKAGE and you assume all risk for the remainder of the delivery. WE DO NOT OFFER RETURNS OR REFUNDS for items that package-forwarding companies fail to deliver to you.
