Limited 180gm vinyl LP repressing including digital download. Iron Fist was the fifth studio album by the British band Motörhead. Released on 17 April 1982, it peaked at # 6 on the UK album charts. It was preceded by the release of the title track "Iron Fist" as a single on 3 April, which peaked in the UK singles chart at #29. Iron Fist was the final album to be recorded by the Lemmy, "Fast" Eddie Clarke and Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor line-up. As with previous albums, recording commenced with producer Vic Maile at his Jackson's Studio in Rickmansworth in 1981. Clarke was unhappy with the Maile produced sessions and decided that the album should be recorded themselves, although Lemmy lamented at the time that "it's a shame to have lost Vic in a way because I thought it was successful".
