Motörhead announce ‘Under Cöver’ album featuring unheard David Bowie cover

Motörhead announce ‘Under Cöver’ album featuring unheard David Bowie cover

Motorhead just keep on rocking ! 

read on ..

Thanks to Planet rock for this story 

 

A collection of some of Motörhead’s greatest covers is being released this September.

Titled ‘Under Cöver’, the album features Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee's unique take on tracks by The Sex Pistols (God Save The Queen), Metallica (Whiplash), The Rolling Stones (Jumpin’ Jack Flash / Sympathy For The Devil), Judas Priest (Breaking The Law) and Dio (Starstruck) recorded between 1992 and 2005.

Making the release extra special is that it includes a previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s seminal classic ‘Heroes’, given the unique Motörhead twist.

The Bowie cover was recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 with producer Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs Motörhead recorded together before Lemmy’s untimely death in December 2015.


Phil Campbell comments: “It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”

“He was very, very proud of it,” adds Mikkey Dee. “Not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”

Reflecting upon the album as a whole, Mikkey adds: “We were happy with them at the time and we’re happy with them now! We should remember that it’s about having some fun with songs that we all loved.”



‘Under Cöver’ is released on various formats on Friday 1st September via Motörhead Music.

The track-listing is as follows:

1) Breaking the Law (Produced by Cameron Webb) 2008
2) God Save the Queen (Produced by Bob Kulick and Bruce Bouillet) 2000

100 Greatest Metal Albums revealed by Rolling Stone

100 Greatest Metal Albums revealed by Rolling Stone

Do you agree with Rolling Stone? 

Are there any missing? Is the number 1 the right choice?

Critics at Rolling Stone have unveiled what they believe are the 100 greatest metal records ever.

Fittingly, heavy metal godfathers Black Sabbath top the extensive list with their 1970 masterpiece ‘Paranoid’, while the Birmingham band’s self-titled debut is close behind in fifth spot.

Heaping praise on Sabbath’s second record, which spawned colossal anthems ‘War Pigs’, ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Paranoid’, the US magazine justified its lofty no.1 spot by writing:

“Paranoid was the sound of Black Sabbath's reality, a plea for understanding that would resonate with millions of people feeling the same disaffection, many of whom would form groups like Metallica, Pantera and Slipknot – groups that would change the face of metal, as well as the world.”

In second place on the countdown is Metallica’s thrash metal opus ‘Master of Puppets’, with Judas Priest’s tour-de-force ‘British Steel’ in third place and Iron Maiden’s influential third LP ‘Number of the Beast’ in fourth.

Completing the Top 10 are Slayer’s ‘Reign In Blood’, Motörhead’s ‘No Remorse’, Megadeth’s ‘Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?’, Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Blizzard of Oz’ and Pantera’s ‘Vulgar Display of Power’.
