Iron Lamb’s new album “Fool’s Gold” feels like from another era, an era where
the lines between Rock n’ Roll, Heavy Metal, and Punk Rock were still blurry.
The result is an album that reminds me a lot of Motörhead, but with a slightly
stronger Punk Rock influence, and occasional hints of Metal. Fans who love
Motörhead will obviously also love this album.
Songs like “One Way Track”, or
“Smile Now, Cry Later” simply have that certain Rock n’ Roll drive and combine it
with a good dose of Metal in a way that simply blows you away. This is also why
the 5th track “Leave Me Be” stands out so much. The clean vocals, the
much slower pace, and the melancholic atmosphere it creates all remind me a lot
of Nick Cave and hint at the possibility that Iron Lamb is not as predictable as
one should think.
To make it short: The album is a real blast!
