Rock icons Motorhead back in a big way with ‘Kiss of Death’

With a Grammy win and the chart topping new album ‘Kiss of Death,’ heavy metal rock icons Motorhead are celebrating 31 years of rock with a very loud bang.

‘Kiss of Death’ has brought the band some of its highest chart entries ever, and continues to climb.

The album is currently tearing up the European chart numbers:

Germany:   #4 (highest entry ever)
Norway: #9 (highest entry ever)
Sweden:  #13 (highest entry ever)
Austria: #20
Switzerland: #26
UK:  #45 (highest SPV entry ever)               
Denmark:  #53

The band’s singer and frontman Lemmy is also seeing some more exposure in rock magazines ( and in the pages of Maxim. In the pages of Revolver Magazine, Matt Pike of High On Fire interviews his idol, and Bass Guitar Magazine’s feature which includes Lemmy’s top five favorite rhythm sections. 

Maxim Magazine’s October issue begins an ongoing monthly column with Lemmy where he invests an imaginary sum in a variety of stocks and the magazine will track their progress.  And the stocks Lemmy chose?  They include the makers of his smoke and drink of choice, since he “personally keeps them in business.”
