Sweden Rock Festival 2012MOTÖRHEAD BACK AT SWEDEN ROCK AFTER 3 YEARS AWAY!

In 2012, an impressive 20 years have passed since singer/bassist Lemmy Kilmister, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee (ex-King Diamond) gathered as Motörhead.

This makes the trio the longest lasting constellation by far in the band’s long history. Since their formation in 1975 Motörhead have recorded, so far, 21 studio albums and innumerable mega-historical hard rock classics like ”Ace of spades”, ”Killed by death”, ”Bomber” and ”Overkill”. The band’s unique combination of rawness, speed and groove has captured the hearts of not only metalheads but punks and rockers as well.

Therein lies, of course, a big part of the explanation why so many want to see Motörhead at SRF so often. A request that we’re only too willing to oblige.
