Lion's Share - "Killed By Death" (a tribute to Lemmy)

Ian Fraser Kilmister
If you squeeze my lizard
I'll put my snake on you
I'm a romantic adventure
And I'm a reptile too

But it don't make no difference
'cos I ain't gonna be, easy, easy
the only time I'm easy's when I'm
Killed by death [x4]

I'm a lone wolf ligger
But I ain't no pretty boy
I'm a backbone shiver
and I'm a bundle of joy

But it don't make no difference
'cos I ain't gonna be, easy, easy
the only time I'm easy's when I'm

Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death

Σαν σήμερα προ πενταετίας, στο 28 Δεκεμβρίου 2015, απεβίωσε ο Ian Fraser Kilmister (γνωστότερος ως Lemmy) και μαζί του μας εγκατέλειψε και η αισθητική μίας ολόκληρης εποχής. Οι Lion's Share τιμούν την μνήμη του διασκευάζοντας έναν από τους ύμνους των Motörhead, το "Killed By Death". Το βίντεο με την διασκευή προλογίζει ο τελευταίος (χρονικά) drummer των Motörhead (και νυν των Scorpions) Mikkey Dee.

Οι Lion's Share μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Υπάρχουν στο heavy metal σύμπαν από το 1987, δηλώνουν ως επιρροές συγκροτήματα όπως οι Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, DIO, Accept, Metallica, Saxon, OZZY, Iron Maiden, Manowar κλπ κι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει έξι "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν τέσσερα demos, έξι singles, ένα ep και μία συλλογή)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «LION'S SHARE Celebrates LEMMY's Memory And Music With Cover Of MOTÖRHEAD's 'Killed By Death'. Swedish heavy metal band LION'S SHARE has made its tribute to Lemmy and MOTÖRHEAD available on streaming services and digital service providers on the fifth anniversary of Lemmy's death, December 28th, to celebrate his memory and music.

LION'S SHARE singer Nils Patrik Johansson says: "Lemmy is truly the definition of rock 'n' roll - and even though LION'S SHARE is more heavy metal than rock 'n' roll, MOTÖRHEAD and Lemmy has been a great inspiration over the years."

"We've been talking about giving our friends and fans a surprise, and when I came up with the idea to cover 'Killed By Death', Lars [Chriss, LION'S SHARE guitarist] was all in and made a great arrangement that just didn't copy the original, which would have been pointless."

Chriss adds: "We had the pleasure of supporting MOTÖRHEAD, DIO and MANOWAR on the 'Monsters Of The Millennium' tour, and all the bands treated us so extremely well. Lemmy was such a great and funny person to be around. I have so many great memories from that tour. Very cool to have fellow Swede Mikkey Dee (MOTÖRHEAD, SCORPIONS), doing the introduction to our video for the song as well. Plus, of course, the inclusion of all the great photos that Lemmy fans from all over the world sent in."

In late 2018, LION'S SHARE released a new five-track EP, plus its complete catalog - remastered with new artwork - on streaming services and digital service providers for the first time. The band have since released a few more digital singles, some of which will and some of which won't end up on the forthcoming full-length album.

Both Johansson and Chriss remark that they have always worked very well together, and at this point it feels the most natural to keep LION’S SHARE as a duo, with friends helping out wherever needed.

The LION’S SHARE catalog features appearances by members and ex-members of KISS, MEGADETH, KING DIAMOND, HAMMERFALL, SYMPHONY X, CHIMAIRA, THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, CANDLEMASS, etc. Mixers include top engineers such as Jens Bogren (ARCH ENEMY, OPETH, SYMPHONY X, AMON AMARTH) - Niklas Flyckt (one-time Grammy Award winner and four-time nominee) and Ronny Lahti (ROXETTE, EUROPE, Glenn Hughes).

LION'S SHARE has toured with bands like MOTÖRHEAD, MANOWAR, DIO, SAXON, ICED EARTH, NEVERMORE, U.D.O. (ex-ACCEPT), Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER) and has played many of the major rock and metal festivals.»
