Motley Crue has released a demo version of the song “Louder Than Hell” — with the original title of “Hotter Than Hell” — from the upcoming 40th-anniversary edition of their landmark second album Shout At The Devil.
BMG previously announced Year Of The Devil, a multi-configuration celebration of the 40th anniversary of Motley Crue’s landmark second album, Shout At The Devil. The centerpiece of Year Of The Devil is the Limited Edition Super Deluxe Box Set which features the newly remastered album on LP, CD and cassette. Also included are reproductions of the original 7″ singles of “Too Young To Fall In Love” and “Looks That Kill” alongside a Pentagram Séance Board, Devil Board with Metal Planchette, Metal 7″ Adapter, album art lithographs, tarot cards, devil candle holder and more. In addition, seven rare demo tracks have been resurrected and are included as Shout At The Demos & Rarities.
Shout At The Devil – 40th Anniversary is available as a streaming/digital deluxe edition and the following Limited Edition configurations: Super Deluxe Box Set, Picture Disc, Red/Black Vinyl (Walmart), Ghostly Orange Vinyl (Urban Outfitters), Blood Filled Vinyl (Newbury Comics), LP Replica CD, and Lenticular CD (Walmart).
Originally released in 1983 at the height of the Satanic Panic, Shout At The Devil catapulted Motley Crue to superstardom. Delivering on the hype and promise of their platinum debut Too Fast For Love, Motley Crue’s second album hit the US Top 20 and was certified four times platinum. For many music fans, Shout At The Devil was the first time they witnessed an album with this imagery and lyrical content on mainstream retail shelves.
Shout At The Devil continues to be a cornerstone of Motley Crue’s live set, with the band playing up to four songs from this iconic album at every show of “The World Tour.” Fittingly, the original touring cycle for this album saw Motley Crue jump from opening act to full on arena headliners.
The ground-breaking music videos for “Looks That Kill” and “Too Young To Fall In Love” set the standard for countless MTV moments. Those two singles, combined with the sinister title track, reckless cuts like “Knock ‘Em Dead, Kid,” “Bastard” and “Red Hot,” their frenzied take on “Helter Skelter” and the haunting nearly instrumental “God Bless The Children Of The Beast” helped create this era- and genre-defining album.
