As part of a tribute album dedicated to Motörhead, Phil Anselmo and a few other metal musicians covered the band’s song “Ace Of Spades.”

This tribute album is titled Löve Me Förever: A Tribute To Motörhead, and it features a plethora of Motörhead covers. One of those covers is the band’s iconic song “Ace Of Spades,” which features the following metal artists:

Phil Anselmo of Pantera and Down
Gary Holt of Exodus (and ex-Slayer)
Nick Oliveri of Stöner (and ex-Kyuss)
Chuck Garric (who is part of Alice Cooper‘s band)
Sacha Dunable of Intronaut
Kelley Juett of Mothership
Kyle Juett of Mothership
Tom Polzine of Howling Giant
Zach Wheeler

While all the artists do an incredible job performing the song, a standout performance is that of Anselmo. The Pantera singer has a vocal cadence that is similar to that of the late Lemmy Kilmister. Honestly, after hearing Anselmo sing “Ace Of Spades,” we could totally imaging him in a Motörhead cover band.
