Iron Lamb "The Original Sin" CD Review

Sweden produces remarkable bands in an unfailing fashion. Iron Lamb’s Grga Lindstrom gives these 10 tracks a Hellacopters feel with his vocals. Structurally and sonically, this material compiles Motorhead along with Sweden’s Hellacopters & Entombed to produces a heavy, punk rocking blast. Iron Lamb's "The Original Sin" combines the punk edge and vocals of the Hellacopters, the repetitive chugging metallic abuse of a Motorhead riff, rounded out with the thick guitar sound of Entombed. 

Bassist Daniel Ekeroth wrote the book Swedish Death Metal (published in 2008), which apparently looks like I need to add to my collection of books.

Other pluses here include a cover of Motorhead’s “Poison” and the song “I Don’t Like You” starts off with a sample from the Warriors movie, which is always a great frame of reference!

MOTORHEAD "Poison" lyrics from the LP "Bomber"

People tell me you didn't know better,
Give me sermons 'bout the things I do,
Come to love 'em, even wrote letters,
You know I even asked it of you, I said,
I've been doing Poison,
I guess I poisoned my life,
I've been doing Poison,
it's better than marrying your wife

On the road, the pace is getting frantic,
Specially when your poisoned out your mind,
A flight of stairs is like swimming the Atlantic,
When you're poisoned, deaf, dumb and blind,
I take my poison,
I guess I poisoned my life,
Been doing Poison,
I wish I'd Poisoned my wife

My Father, he used to be a Preacher,
Never taught me nothing but scorn,
If I ever catch him on the street, yeah,
I'll make him wish he'd never been born,
He was Poison,
Guess he poisoned my life
He was Poison,
I wish my mother wasn't his wife, no!
