CD review MOTORJESUS ‘Hellbreaker’

Authenticity is something that is precious to Motorjesus and the good thing is, that it comes naturally. The band, that operated in the beginning as The Shitheadz morphed into Motorjesus in the early 2000s. Since then the quintet released longplayers on a regular base with their latest studio album ‘Race to Resurrection’ which hit the shelfs in 2018.

‘Hellbreaker’ is the successor that is waiting in the blocks for the go-ahead. The release is scheduled for early April which is a perfect timing for upcoming cruising tours with bike or car. Motorjesus delivers with ‘Hellbreaker’ the soundtrack for the first tour this year and as stated in the title track: “Let the motor run”. The five guys don’t give any doubts that they are ready to start the engine and they do it musically with ‘Drive Through Fire’. After  a short intro-section it’s the first riff that announce some dirty rock’n’roll. The track shifts gears rather quickly and evolves to a powering song that units rock and metal.

The heavily pounding engine is resonating with songs like ‘Lawgiver’. For Motorjesus the first three gears are basically not existing in their musical gearbox. Each of the songs puts demands on the engine with songs like ‘Car Wars’ being a heavy pounding rock hymn.

‘Hellbreaker’ is a the logical continuation of Motorjesus interpretation of dirty hard rock. This longplayer has edges and spreads the smell of gasoline and leather. Fasten the seatbelt, release the handbrake and start the engine for a joy ride into the sunset.
