Motorjesus play traditional Heavy Metal & dirty Rock'n'Roll combined in their own special�High-Octane mix.�The band is very active live since the beginning of the 2000s and already played tours with bands like Motörhead, Anthrax, Mustasch, Der W, Prong and many more. Also on festivals like the Summer Breeze or the Rock Hard Festival the "Motorjupps" were already allowed to guest.�Although Motorjesus is one of the longest serving bands in German Heavy Rock, the attitude of the five guys from the Rhineland can be described as down-to-earth. They are far away from rock star airs and graces. Their penchant for rock'n'roll and 70s musclecars is often reflected in their cover artwork, where the "Motorized Jesus" has now become a permanent band mascot and is indispensable.�Motorjesus played many festivals and their own headlining tour in recent years, as well as a support tour for Swedish rockers Mustasch in late 2019. Subsequently, the first live album "Live Resurrection" was released in February 2020.
The Corona pandemic put a spoke in the wheel of all live activities for the band, however, they thus concentrated on a new seventh studio album, which has now been released under the name "Hellbreaker". The album was again mixed by the Swedish producer legend Dan Swanö (Opeth, Katatonia and many more).
With this album Motorjesus could achieve the highest chart entry in the band's history. The record entered the German Media Control charts at number 20. This time Motorjesus deliberately tried to produce a rather compact, fast, explosive album, which, contrary to the other Motorjesus tradition, does without ballads.�Songs like the boarding "Car Wars", "Battlezone" or the mangy "Dead Rising" exude a slightly punky snot rock attitude, while other songs like the catchy "Hellbreaker" or the anthemic Judge Dredd tribute song "Lawgiver" are more indebted to traditional heavy metal of the 80s like Judas Priest or Iron Maiden.�But also old Motorjesus fans will find typical Motorjesus songs between Hard Rock, Classic Rock, Stoner and other broad Rock influences in the opener "Drive Through Fire", in "Beyond the Grave" or the groove head-nicker "Firebreather". The main thing is to sing along loudly and to get the fists going upwards. Especially the integration of the new band line-up, especially new guitarist Patrick Wassenberg, adds fresh ideas, burning solos and some new over-the-top views in songwriting to the sound of Motorjesus.
Motorjesus still remain true to themselves and are ready to start afresh to bring the new album "Hellbreaker"�(if possible) on the road!
Let the motor run!
