LORD BUFFALO releases disturbing cover of MOTÖRHEAD’s ‘God Was Never On Your Side’


“I think the roots of American rural music shared some of the values ​​of the stoner and doom crowd in its rawness and breadth, written with performance at its core and a lack of expectation of any mass commercial viability,” he said. declared Daniel Pruitt of Lord Buffalo. “We are interested in music, whatever you want to call it.”

Group from Austin, Texas Lord Buffalo did a great job creating music that seems beyond description. Although many have tried, the band itself continues to create a unique sonic aura with a foothold deep in the dark side of folk music. They are strange sonic wanderers who have been compared to legendary composers. Ennio Morriconeworks shared by Nick Cave and Warren Ellisas good as Neil Young who wrote the lyrics “What’s the color when the black is burnt” (from “I Am A Child”) which Young wrote when he was in Buffalo Springfield in 1968.

Just in case you have any doubts Neil Young had a dark side. All of this concocts a desirable sonic mix for a band looking to take on Lemmy and the gang jam about believing in God and heaven being a huge waste of time. For this, they turned to Motorheadthe eighteenth disc, kiss of death (2006) and the track “God Was Never On Your Side”. When asked what he had learned as a musician from Motorhead, Lord Buffalo Fruit had this to say:

“An important lesson for me from Motorhead is that it doesn’t have to be this massively complex thing. It doesn’t need to be overproduced. Sometimes the first take is the best take. And just pull from the hip. There’s a philosophy there that just permeates their (Motorhead‘s) the whole catalog. There’s a rawness and breadth to it that, for me, as someone who makes very different music, that’s what I take away Motorhead. And, Lemmy made playing the bass cool for so many kids. You know, everybody wanted to be the band shredder, but Lemmy was like ‘Nah.'”

Lord BuffaloThe cover of “God Was Never On Your Side” is grimy, brooding and rather cinematic – an element that brings us back to the group’s comparison with the Italian composer Ennio Morricone who created some of the greatest horror movie soundtracks in Italian cinema. This is the last piece we presented Love Me Forever: A Tribute to Motörhead which you can stream now, digitally download, or grab a physical copy of the oxblood-colored wax-pressed vinyl from PsychoWaxx.Com.
