Release Date: January 10, 2006
This latest Motorhead release, entitled "Stage Fright," is a double DVD and not merely a rock 'n' roll statement chiseled into stone, but also an extraordinary look at the band's life. If you're looking for some no-nonsense hard rock riffage, "Stage Fright" is your destination.

Sound: Lemmy proves once again that he and his mates are the loudest, most racous rock and roll band in the world. They are just so bloody loud and so bloody vicious that it is all you will ever need to make yourself deaf. The band themselves are sounding better than ever, particularly guitarist Phil Campbell, who shows off his odd mix of Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden, Kirk Hammet of Metallica and The Edge from U2 to its fullest. Mickey Dee, the drummer is also on hot form. // 10

Content: This features a show from the 30th anniversary tour of 2005. The set list includes classics like "Ace Of Spades," "No Class," "Iron Fist" and of course, the mighty "Overkill" but it also contains newer and more obscure material such as "Dancing On Your Grave," "Killers," "R.A.M.O.N.E.S" and "In The Name Of Tragedy." Other songs in the set include "I Got Mine," "Just 'Cause You Got The Power. That Don't Mean You've Got The Right," "Whorehouse Blues," "Dr. Rock," "Metropolis," "Scarifice," "Going To Brazil," "Over The Top" and "Love Me Like A Raptile." This is a very satisfying set list with some awesome songs, including 2 classics from "Inferno." But I would have liked to have seen "Damage Case" or "Bomber." // 10

Production Quality: This is good althougn sometimes the drums are a little too quiet. There are some simple camera and light effects which are genrally pretty cool although not trendy because Motorhead are not trendy. // 10

Overall Impression: This is an awesome live DVD. One of the best that I own. "In The Name Of Tragedy," "Just 'Cause You Got The Power..." "Ace Of Spades" and "Overkill" are the best songs although the set is faultless. I love the very cool mix of older and newer songs, giving the set a good variety and clear distiction. I would buy this again a million times, it is just the best. If it were stolen I would make sure that I could have this DVD in prision with me because I would kill the thief till he was dead (slight mis-quote from "Killers"). It is just amazing, a must buy. // 10
