Superchrist have apparently been toiling in the Chicago scene for a number of years, but have not made a lot of international (or even national) headway yet. On their fifth album, the appropriately titled Headbanger, the guys deliver what can only be called no-frills metal. The songs are upbeat and accessible without pandering to commercialism or trying for radio airplay. There's a healthy dose of newer Motorhead, both musically and in the vocal department (Chris Black doesn't quite have the gruff voice of Lemmy, but he often sings like Lemmy, if that makes sense), and there's also plenty of nods to the past (a NWOBHM flavor permeates throughout) though this doesn't really sound like a retro act. There's nothing complicated here, and very little that's current or trendy, but there's an infectiousness here that makes this a good listen.
