The official cover video for the Motorhead song Ace of Spades by Philip H. Anselmo (DOWN, PANTERA), Gary Holt (EXODUS, SLAYER), Chuck Garric (ALICE COOPER), Sacha Dunable (INTRONAUT), Nick Oliveri (STÖNER, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, KYUSS), Dwid Hellion (INTEGRITY ), and Zach Wheeler and Tom Polzine (HOWLING GIANT) can be seen on YouTube.

The track is taken from Motorhead’s new tribute album, Love Me Forever: A Tribute to Motörheadwhich will be released on June 19 under the new house label, Psycho Waxx, created by the founders of the Psycho Las Vegas Festival.

Ace of Spades is one of rock and roll’s most beloved anthems. Covering the wild ode to gamers around the world and that’s why Psycho Waxx came up with this sacred rite, Psycho Las Vegas’ most prestigious and talented musicians were asked to step in to make this iconic track sound clean. and strong.

Each rock musician in the song helps bring a different memory of the late singer Lemmy. Anselmo’s deep vocals complement Hellion’s loud howls while Holt’s guitar playing gives the track an exciting metallic edge. If you hear a desert rock vibe with a heavy dose of hardcore, it’s Oliveri showing his skills. Kelley and Kyle Juett of MOTHERSHIP contribute to the madness by creating rhythms capable of shaking the veins of those who listen.

Wheeler’s and Polzine’s help by creating a crushing rock and roll sound to help keep things together by bringing a huge musical vibe. With Dunable showing off his guitar playing and Garric’s sweet bass riffs, this is how a band can make one of rock and metal’s most memorable covers.
