Ace Of Spades (2001) (RMST) (CASTLE MUSIC) (3 BONUS TRACKS)
Feted by bikers, respected by punks, Motörhead exemplified rock''s outlaw chic. On ACE OF SPADES their speed-metal attack exploded with unparalleled fury. Thrashing guitars and primitive drums underpinned vocalist/bassist Lemmy, whose blooded-throat roar enhances the trio''s aggression. Mind-numbingly basic and deafeningly loud, they savage rock''s pomp and circumstance, rivalling "Louie Louie" for simplicity and excitement.
ACE OF SPADES is the fourth album by the British band. It was released on November 8, 1980 peaking at #4 on the U.K. album charts and reaching Gold status by March 1981. It was preceded by the release of the title track as a single on 27 October, which peaked in the U.K. singles chart at #15 in early November.
The album was recorded in August and September 1980, produced by Vic Maile at his Jackson''s Studio in Rickmansworth. This is the first of what would be a series of projects with Maile, and members of the band commented at the time about finding the right producer. Whereas the band had previously had an input at the mixing stage, Maile took sole responsibility here, Clarke explaining that the result was that "you can finally hear everything that''s going on". Of the performances, Lemmy claimed that "Vic got me singing instead of just shouting all the time", while Taylor added "and he got me playing more solid".
