Omotai Provides Song For Harvey Benefit Compilation

While the band’s hometown struggles to clear the carnage left by Hurricane Harvey, Houston-based Omotai has provided a new track to a benefit compilation to help the community rebuild.

“Making Waves: A Benefit Compilation For Those Affected By Hurricane Harvey” is available digitally at Bandcamp, featuring fifteen Houston artists including Football, etc., Cool Moon, Vodi, Ruiners, The Wheel Workers, Astragal, Dollie Barnes, Greg Cote & The Real Life Friends, Tee Vee, Lace, El Lago, Miears, Fight Me, and Rose Ette.

Omotai provides the track “A Cruel Weight, Thy Wound,” which can be heard below. All proceeds from the sales of this album will be donated directly to United Way Of Greater Houston’s Hurricane Relief Fund.

Omotai bassist/vocalist Melissa Lonchambon Ryan offers, “This storm was completely unfathomable, and I’ve been through a lot of hurricanes. Some of the first-person accounts I’ve read will haunt me for a long time. For a lot of people here, it will be difficult and take a long time to get back to some kind of normalcy or get close to replacing what was lost. But I was astounded by the response of regular people here that stepped up and rescued and helped others.”

Motorhead Releasing “Under Cöver” Album

One thing Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell, and Mikkey Dee liked to do throughout their years together in Motorhead was grab a favorite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned Motörheading. To run them through the Motörizer, if you will.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release “Under Cöver,” 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, this was one of the last songs the band members recorded together.

“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”

“He was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”

God Dethroned “Under the Golden Wings of Death” – new Throwback Thursday video of the week!

– May 25th, 2017 –

In celebration of Metal Blade Records‘ 35th anniversary, a recently digitized video from the archives will be launched every Thursday on the label’s official YouTube channel. These videos have never been officially uploaded by the label, and some are not currently available anywhere else online. Previous Throwback Thursday videos include classic cuts from Lizzy Borden, Candlemass, Nevada Beach, Skrew, and more. Watch the latest video and more at the official YouTube playlist.

This week’s installment is God Dethroned “Under the Golden Wings of Death” from their Bloody Blasphemy album. The band recently returned with The World Ablaze earlier this month, so it’s only fitting that this Throwback Thursday celebrates a cut from their third full-length album, released all the way back in 1999!
