This Machine Kills - 88%

televiper11, December 5th, 2017
Written based on this version: 2016, Digital, Independent (Bandcamp)

Recorded in tribute to the passing of Lemmy Kilmister in 2015, Lethal Shöck opt to up the voltage of "Mean Machine," my favorite track from Motörhead's 1986 album Orgasmatron. Released in early 2016, thirty years after the original, Lethal Shöck wisely choose to not fuck with greatness. The grime and slime is there with the velocity slightly ticked up. The vocals are lower, rottener, but otherwise, they do it straight justice. Covers are a tricky thing, hard to make your own. Lethal Shöck nails it. Lemmy forever.
