Musta käsi

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (6 Votes)

If the umlaut over the second "O" in Rotör's name was too subtle a clue, it should take no more than a few seconds of opening track "Avattu hauta" for you to realize that these Finns love classic-era Motörhead. Their songs are a high-octane mix of fast, loose riffing, pummeling bass, sweet solos and angry, punk-influenced shouts. Rotör's music would hardly be out of place on albums like Overkill or Bomber though only "Portti helvettiin" approaches the catchiness of what Lemmy and crew were capable of at their peak. The band's debut album Musta käsi is an energetic and enthusiastic romp and I'd be lying if I said my foot wasn't tapping often when it was on but they do have some work to do in the songwriting department. That said, fans of early Motörhead and the less polished NWOBHM acts should give this one a spin.
