Philip Anselmo talks about Motorhead
Philip Anselmo recently joined in for an interview with Banger TV in which he spoke about Lemmy Kilmister and his band in depth.
The Pantera vocalist said: “The first thing that attracted me to Motorhead was Lemmy Kilmister and the sound of his voice. And then it was solidified… In 1985, I went to a show outside New Orleans, Louisiana, and it was Agnostic Front and Motorhead. It was a wall of crushing sound and they were just incredible; they sounded great. Lemmy was so long lasting and impressionable, man, on me. He’s forever, and I love him.”
An official video for a cover of Motorhead’s “Ace Of Spades” by Anselmo, Gary Holt (Exodus, Slayer ), Chuck Garric (Alice Cooper),Sacha Dunable (Intronaut),Oliveri (Stoner, Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss),Dwid Hellion (Integrity),and Zach Wheeler and Tom Polzine (Howling Giant) can be seen below. The track is taken from the Motorhead tribute album, “Löve Me Förever: A Tribute To Motörhead”, which was released on June 19 via the new in-house label, Psycho Waxx, created by the founders of Psycho Las Vegas festival.
“Ace Of Spades” is undoubtedly one of the popular rock and roll sacred anthems. Covering the bombastic ode to gamblers everywhere is a heavy crown to bear for any musician up for the task. That’s why when Psycho Waxx proposed this sacred rite, it was asked of Psycho Las Vegas’s most prestigious alumni and metal heavyweights.
