Holiday Metal Gift Guide 2017

Santa Claus is a metalhead.

Because, let’s face it, it’s time to take Santa back. We all know he drives around on Christmas Eve in a hearse blasting Motorhead, and wondering what to get all the good metalheads for Christmas. Well, have I got a list for him!

Here’s the 2017 Metalhead’s Holiday Gift Guide

In Memoriam: Musicians Who Died In 2015

In Memoriam 2015: Music…

Another year has come to an end. While 2015 was full of life in so many vivid ways — creatively, intensely, and tragically — it also presented its own set of challenges and obstacles to overcome in the new year. And as a year also brings, we also lost many shining figures in the music world, among other fields.

Here’s a look of some of those figures who touched our lives and will continue to do so always as we remember some of the key people in music, people who are legends, pioneers, luminaries, inspirations, and above all, timeless.

Massive Metal Monday: Motorhead “Live To Win”

Lemmy Motorhead

To say that I am devastated by the recent deaths of Motorhead founding members Lemmy Kilmister and Phil Taylor is a serious understatement. Motorhead was, and will always be, one of the very cornerstones of metal for me. From the very first time that I heard “Ace of Spades” on MTV in 1981, my life would never be the same. I mean, here was a band that consisted of the most insane-looking drummer that I had ever seen up to that time, a guitarist who played faster than I’d ever heard, and a biker-looking dude with his vocal mic pointed skyward as though he were screaming at the gods themselves with a bass tone that sounded like they were screaming back! Motorhead was the band that bridged the gap between metalheads and punkers. They pretty much invented speed metal and it’s nearly impossible to imagine the existence of all of the metallic hardcore hybrids that followed had they not paved the way.

Much has been said about Lemmy, Phil, and Motorhead’s influence in recent weeks. I was privileged enough to meet Lemmy several times at his favorite watering hole, The Rainbow Bar and Grill right here in L.A. He was a funny, witty, down-to-Earth guy who, it seemed, everyone loved. He even kissed my wife at the turn of midnight on New Year’s Eve 1999. That was a year before we were together, but even if it hadn’t been, Lemmy was the kind of guy who you could forgive for kissing your wife. Everyone in L.A. or who was ever a Motorhead fan has a story to tell. For this Massive Metal Monday, we’ll just raise glass, crank the hell out of our speakers, and let Lemmy break it off for you in his own words. Here from the band who talked the talk and walked the walk is “Live To Win” from Motorhead’s landmark fourth album, Ace of Spades.

Lemmy Kilmister Motorhead

Lemmy Kilmister, one of the most iconic frontman in rock and the leader of the long-running band Motorhead, died today after a battle with cancer, according to a post on Motorhead’s official Facebook page. He was 70.

For the past few years, the road warrior had a few health scares, causing Motorhead to cancel tour dates, and also assure fans that the big guy was still “alive and kicking.” While the rock and roll legend had suffered a haematoma a few years ago, he was reportedly diagnosed with cancer on December 26, 2015, just two days after his 70th birthday.

Originally Released: April 27, 2005

"We weren’t even given credit as musicians. People thought we were fuckin’ wankers…"
Eddie Clarke, Motörhead

There are many seminal albums that have stayed the course of the Metal genre over the years, but very few have reached across multiple genres becoming such a cornerstone in music history as Motörhead’s Ace of Spades. The 1980 release was hugely prominent in its day, but is perhaps more so as time goes on.

While their albums Overkill and Bomber put Motörhead on the map, it was Ace of Spades that catapulted them to international stardom (or notoriety). The band was led by the god known only as Lemmy, and joined by guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke and backed by Phil “The Animal” Taylor (responsible for the invention of using double bass drum in metal songs).

Motorhead Says Lemmy Is ‘Alive & Kicking’ After Falling Ill At Wacken Show

Motorhead band live

Lemmy Kilmister, the iconic frontman of heavy rock band Motorhead, is “alive and kicking,” according to the band’s guitarist, Phil Campbell, who posted the update to his Twitter page after his bandmate took ill on Friday, August 2, causing the band to shorten their set at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany. Since the event, rumors have been swirling through social media networks about Lemmy’s health and possible death, which prompted the official response from the band.

This is the second time this year that the band had to issue a “Lemmy is still alive” statement to the public, the first time being in June when Motorhead had to cancel some tour dates after the 67-year-old frontman suffered a haematoma and was given doctor’s orders to “rest.” Soon after, the band cancelled most of their upcoming European festival tour dates, but kept themselves on the bill for the Wacken festival. The band took the stage at Wacken, but ended up cutting their set short to six songs after Lemmy’s health started failing.

Watch Now: Troma Films’ ‘Return To Nuke ‘Em High Vol. I & II’ Trailer With Motorhead’s Lemmy

Lemmy Return To Nuke 'Em High Vol. I & II

This year Troma Films, purveyors of some of the most unhinged B-movies to melt the innards of many a VCR, is preparing to unleash its biggest movie made yet, a depraved epic bound to offend every special interest group on Earth and maybe even a few on distant planets that is so huge it has to be split into two parts, Kill Bill style. Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. I & II, the fourth movie in the studio’s other most successful franchise that kicked off in 1986 and has become one of many bona fide cult classics to endure throughout the years, is coming to theaters soon and bringing a star-studded cast (for a Troma movie) with it.

You can check out a poster and teaser trailer for the movie here below.

Set to appear in Return are such Troma mainstays as Debbie Rochon, porn movie legend Ron Jeremy, and hard rock god Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead (the photo above shows him in the film as President Lemmy). Mark Neveldine, the co-director of the Crank movies, Gamer, and most recently Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, is looking to appear in this latest Troma-tic endeavor. Studio head Lloyd Kaufman, who has directed many of Troma’s best-known movies, returns to serve as director, and judging by the trailer will also make his customary cameo bow.

Lemmy

Today, December 24, 2011, Lemmy Kilmister turns 66!

The true king of rock n roll and bass-playing hellraiser needs little introduction. Motorhead’s frontman, who it has been scientifically proven* is made up of 49% motherfucker and 51% son of a bitch, has been making records for over 45 years. This year, his band released the superb The World Is Yours and toured to support it. There’s little sign that the British music legend is going to slow down.
