Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Motörhead facebook timeline:

ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old-fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

Under Cöver will be released on September 1st, 2017.

Motörhead Under Cöver – Track Listing:

  1. Breaking the Law (Judas Priest) 2008
  2. God Save the Queen (The Sex Pistols) 2000
  3. Heroes (David Bowie) 2015
  4. Starstruck (Rainbow) 2014
  5. Cat Scratch Fever (Ted Nugent) 1992
  6. Jumpin’ Jack Flash (The Rolling Stones) 2001
  7. Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones) 2015
  8. Hellraiser (Ozzy Osbourne) 1992
  9. Rockaway Beach (Ramones) 2002
  10. Shoot ‘Em Down (Twisted Sister) 2001

Rest In Peace, David Zablidowsky, aka David Z.

Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family of David Z. and to the members of Adrenaline Mob, their crew, families and friends. May David Z. rest in peace.


Yes, 2017 has continued where 2016 left off, in regards to losing way too many of our Rock and Metal musicians. David Zablidowsky, aka David Z., passed away on July 14th in Florida, while on tour with his bandmates of Adrenaline Mob. He was only 38 years old. David Z. was killed due to a tractor-trailer hitting the bands’ RV from behind, while said RV was getting a flat tire changed on the side of a highway. If you want the horrible details to this accident, please read about it somewhere else; here at Metal Odyssey I want to celebrate David Z. and Adrenaline Mob, without giving the same carbon-copied details of such a horrifying accident, like too many other music sites are doing right now.

David Z. played bass for Adrenaline Mob, had his own band ZO2 and also performed for the fabulous Trans Siberian Orchestra aka TSO. David Z. played bass for Adrenaline Mobs’ newest studio album: We The People. This is the only Adrenaline Mob album that David Z. plays bass on and he has forever left a wonderful legacy of music. As a fan of both TSO and Adrenaline Mob, I will state without question that both of these music acts thrive on employing the very best musicians of their respective craft; David Z. was no exception.

As a fan, I try my hardest to purchase CDs and merch whenever I have the extra money. I urge you to please buy the new Adrenaline Mob album, play it loud and listen to David Z. play his bass; this is a grand way to celebrate both David Z. and the band. Adrenaline Mob also need every ounce of our support at this time, commenting encouragement and kindness to them on their social media sites I highly recommend. We as fans need to stand by Adrenaline Mob, now more than ever. – Stone



Russell Allen, Mike Orlando, Jordan Cannata and of course, David Z.


Jason McCloe, Rob Dressler, Janet Rains, Dale Campiglia

I pray for each one of you to heal, both physically and emotionally. God Bless you all. – Stone
