Here we have the self-titled debut from Nitrogods, the new project of once Primal Fear/Sinner guitarist Henny Wolter and drummer Klaus Sperling. Vocalist/bassist Oimel Larcher completes the lineup, and as a trio, this lot create a decent amount of noise. It's powerful, in your face, and soaked in booze. As one might expect, the first port of call is Motorhead. Larcher sounds identical to Lemmy here, and the vocal lines are culled from pretty much every Motorhead song ever penned.

Beyond that, Henny Wolter brings a certain degree of Sinner-like riffage, a touch of Primal Fear, and a good dose of Gun Barrel to the table. Songs like "Demolition Inc", "Gasoline" and opener "Black Car Driving Man" are all ball-busters full of bluesy riffs, searing solos, pounding double kicks, and, oh yeah, Motorhead Worship, in case I didn't make myself clear. Still, it'll get the head banging if you happen to be at a house party somewhere, and it's better than anything Lemmy and co have released in many a year, which, in all honesty, isn't saying much.
