Super group Metal Allegiance has released a special EP entitled “Fallen Heroes” to pay homage to three musical legends: Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie, and Glenn Frey.
Motorhead’s classic hit “Iron Fist” certainly shines for its inner enthusiasm true rocker style featuring Troy Sanders from Mastodon on the vocals and a spicy catchy solo elegantly executed by Alex Skolnick.
David Bowie’s iconic tune “Suffragette City” is another great cover choice with a powerful guitar driven rhythm and Mark Osegueda from Death Angel delivering a blistering performance with a proper metal edge.
On The Eagles’ “Life In The Fast Lane” Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy delivers a super groovy performance well supported by loud upbeat drumming courtesy of Mike Portnoy and a wonderful bombastic guitar work that naturally culminates in Skolnick’s creative bluesy solo.
“Fallen Heroes” is sweet and, unfortunately, short but most importantly is a great way to sincerely celebrate and honor the legacy of such great musicians.
