17.01.2011: Wheels Of Purgatory - DMAX, Charts & Der W (MOTORJESUS)


MOTORJESUS are in deed on the fast lane. The new album "Wheels Of Purgatory"released last December made an impact like a bomb at the press and convinced with refreshing rock somewhere between Monster Magnet and Volbeat - or as Piranha wrote: "Not metal, not alternative, but simply straddle-legged and intoxicating – Nickelback and co. would sound like this, if they had balls." The Rock Hard awarded the wanted "Dynamit" for "one of the strongest albums this month" and in the Metal Hammer the Motorjuppen just missed the pole position of the soundcheck just on position #2. Of course the album brings the Rock DJs to extasy as well and "Wheels Of Purgatory" climbs up to the Top5 of the clubcharts MRC30 and DAT20.

The guys around frontman Chris Birx entered the Media Control Newcomer Charts at once and are now full speed ahead. The TV for men, better known as DMAX, chose the track „King Of The Dead End Road“ as sound for its February "Highlights of the month"-campaign and that is flanked by a TV spot (videsupra or multimedia area)

And like often with good news, the best for last! Stephan Weidner seems to like MOTORJESUS as well. During 14 shows of the upcoming "Autonomie 2011" tour of Der W. MOTORJESUS will be the direct support and swing the steamhammer with broad chest – do not miss that! (>>> dates)
