Turtlehead's Motorhead Cover

Three thoughts about this cover:
  1. Maybe I've become a casualty of the loudness wars, but the recording sounds fantastic. There's a certain energy that a good rock band generates playing live that typically doesn't make it to recordings, but that energy is very much present here.
  2. Never thought about how obvious was that Motorhead is fronted by a singer playing another instrument until I watched Bobby Blitz hang out on the sidelines for most of the recording.
  3. Figures that Mike Portnoy would be involved in a cover where the band keeps playing one section faster and faster just for fun.
