It was only a few short weeks ago when I shared the nominees for the 2018 Crunchyroll Anime Awards and as our longer-term readers know; PiercingMetal is a fan of the conventions that feature this stuff like Liberty City Anime Con, Anime NYC and of course New York Comic Con. Anime and the Manga comics titles are still areas that I am not 100% schooled on but I do enjoy both mediums through the hearts of my friends and am glad to share the winners of these awards with you all. Please peruse the list down below where I’ve highlighted the winners but also left those they were nominated against for those who are looking for solid Anime to investigate. My thoughts are if these were up for awards, then they have to be good. Let’s go.

“Kiss Of Death” by Motorhead

Artist: Motorhead
Title: “Kiss Of Death”
Label: Sanctuary Records
Release Date: 8/29/2006
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

Is there any band with more resolve than Motorhead? I have to answer a resounding “No” to the inquiry as I spin the tracks on “Kiss Of Death”, the bands latest offering on Sanctuary Records. Their last release “Inferno” (also on Sanctuary Records) was a little more experimental and found the band with numerous time signature changes and even more styles than we are used to from them. The record also featured Steve Vai on a couple of tracks as well and with “Kiss Of Death” there is a more basic return to format and total Hard Rock. With Motorhead this is never a bad thing as you stick with what you know, and this record is bar far one of the best they have released in years. Yes, “Inferno” had some thunderous moments but to me Motorhead was always “raise your fist and your beer into the air” Hard Rock and while I enjoyed the last album, I did not take a lot of that feeling away from my listens to it. “Kiss Of Death” involves no vast reaching from these chaps, as Motorhead have always been about delivering the goods fast and loud and with this new album are back to the basics that make them special. “Sucker” is a knock you down piece for an opener and along with “Trigger” these tracks set much of the albums pace and bring to mind classics such as “Iron Fist” and others that bear the same drive. “Christine” and “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” are just pure Rock and Roll with a razors edge to them. The first track simply begs for one of those types of female dominated videos we used to get in the Eighties while the latter number is a slamming tribute to one of the greatest bands who ever existed.
