Philip Anselmo, Gary Holt + More Lead Motorhead ‘Ace of Spades’ Cover + Tribute Album
The late Lemmy Kilmister and his legendary band Motorhead are beloved by many a metalhead, and a number of them are ready to pay tribute courtesy of a new tribute album that kicks off with an all-star cover of the classic "Ace of Spades."
The project first came about as a spinoff from last year's Psycho Las Vegas festival, with many of the attendees chipping in on a variety of songs. Now the full collection, titled, Löve Me Förever: A Tribute To Motörhead is set to arrive on June 19 via Psycho Waxx.
High on Fire, Eyehategod, Exhorder, Creeping Death, Stoner, Blackwater Holylight and a wealth of others have contributed their own covers of Motorhead songs for the compilation, but the true highlight appears to be the all-star collective dubbed "Psycho Alumni" that have taken on "Ace of Spades." That collective includes Pantera's Philip Anselmo, Exodus guitarist Gary Holt, Stoner's Nick Oliveri, Beasto Blanco and Alice Cooper's Chuck Garric, Intronaut's Sacha Dunable, Mothership's Kelley and Kyle Juett, Howling Giant's Tom Polzine and Zach Wheeler and Integrity's Dwid Hellion.
It seems fitting that "Ace of Spades" would be the lead track, as the song that delves in gambling features a group of musicians who "went all in" after playing the gambling capital for the Psycho Las Vegas festival. You can check out that video and their blistering performance below. If you like what you hear, the track is available via Bandcamp at this location.
