"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.

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.

Check Out ‘Motorheadphones’, Motorhead’s Brand Of Loud Headphones

Motorhead Motorheadphones display

In marketing their new product, headphones called Motörheadphönes, the band Motörhead states, “If it’s too loud, you’re too old.”

As a teen, that was one of the mottos I adopted, as I blasted my heavy metal music as much as I could – the louder the better. I was used to seeing live shows by bands like Motörhead, who’s in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the loudest band. And believe me, they are LOUD.

Motörhead still loves it loud, which is why they’ve expanded their burgeoning enterprise, which includes their own brand of wine, vodka, and glassware, with Motörheadphönes, which are designed to sound both loud and clear.

There will be a Motörheadphönes booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today (January 8) at the CES South Hall at #35801 – and there will be a press conference at 4pm presented by frontman Lemmy Kilmister, who will unveiling this new product for the first time in the United States (it’s already out in Europe).

Robot Band Compressorhead

It’s undoubtedly the wave of the future – a fully functioning robot band!

The German-based Compressorhead, which is made of up guitarist Fingers, bassist Bones, and 4-armed drummer Stickboy along with his hi-hat shuffling offspring Stickboy Junior, are making their debut as a ‘metal’ band this month at Australia’s Big Day Out 2013 festival. In preparation for their big gig, the self-proclaimed “World’s Heaviest Metal Band” was back home practicing Motorhead’s “Ace Of Spades,” one of the many covers they’ll performed during their set.

Check out the video here below to witness these metallic headbangers play “Ace Of Spades.”

According to the band’s Facebook page, their 15-song setlist will consist of such popular covers as Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” and “Rock and Roll,” The Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop,” and Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man.” (Full setlist is below.)

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.

Interview: Album Covers & Magazine Designer Steve ‘Krusher’ Joule
space
Obi-Dan   |

You may not recognise the name, but I guarantee that you have seen (or own) his work. For over 30 years, Steve ‘Krusher’ Joule has designed album covers for the likes of Hawkwind (Live ‘79), Ozzy Osbourne (Diary Of A Madman, Bark At The Moon), Black Sabbath (Born Again), and more.

For 10 years he was the art director for Kerrang! Magazine that Metallica’s Lars Ulrich once called “the most important magazine for us.”

I called up the “van Gogh of metal” for an extensive chat about his work, comics, and his dear friend, guitar hero Würzel. He’s funny, he’s sweary, and he tells it like it is.

Geeks of Doom: First of all, do I call you ‘Krusher’ or Steve?

Steve ‘Krusher’ Joule: Most people call me Krusher.

Geeks of Doom: Where did that come from?

Steve ‘Krusher’ Joule: It was when I was working on Kerrang [magazine]. I just wanted a nickname for a week and thought it would be clever to have Krusher spelled K-E-R-R – as in Kerrang – and U-S-H-E-R. Somebody changed it at the printers to Krusher thinking it was a spelling error…and it just stuck! [laughs]

Geeks of Doom: You’re most well known, to me at least, for designing Ozzy Osbourne album covers particularly Diary Of A Madman and Bark At The Moon. How did that come about?
