MOTÖRHEAD’s Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin, a previously unreleased recording from the 2012 Kings of The Road Tour, is available today via Silver Lining Music.
Recorded December 5, 2012, Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin captures Germany’s love affair with the Grammy award winning band as they play in front of 12,000 delirious, delighted and demented MOTÖRHEADfans at the Berlin Velodrom.
Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin is available on CD with a bonus live DVD, as a double vinyl set, box set (GSA Retail Exclusive and via D2C Worldwide Ex GSA, containing CD with bonus DVD in Digipak, double black vinyl gatefold album in 180 gm and MOTÖRHEAD branded passport cover) and via digital platforms.
Throughout Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin, MOTÖRHEAD’s powerful synergy boots its way through the speakers with the boisterous charm and dirty, dangerous, sweaty gusto that was the Lemmy Kilmister/Phil Campbell/Mikkey Dee trademark. From the unapologetically furious “I Know How to Die” to a deliciously raucous “Going to Brazil,” Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin is all about the thick, raw and liberating power of MOTÖRHEAD live, with longtime producer Cameron Webb bringing his mixing skills to the party as well as doing a 5.1 mix of the DVD. Further highlights include a favorably feral “Rock It,” a rudely raunchy “You Better Run” and a classic one-two haymaker of “Ace of Spades” and “Overkill.” The leading track from the album will be a cranium cracking “Over the Top,” a song which must be as close to definitive of this band as you’ll ever find.
A longtime favorite of heavy metal, punk rock and rock ‘n’ roll fans alike, MOTÖRHEAD also became unlikely media darlings around the globe. Early reviews of Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin have proven that five years after leader Lemmy Kilmister’s death, listeners are still ravenous for “new” MOTÖRHEAD music.
