IN FLAMES, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR Members Pay Tribute To LEMMY On Second Anniversary Of His Death (Video)

A number of Swedish heavy metal musicians — including members of IN FLAMES, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, AVATAR, HORISONT HYPNOS, ENGEL, HONEYMOON DISEASE, RAM, CITY SAINTS, SIPHON FUEL, TRANSPORT LEAGUE and SAFFIRE — paid tribute to Lemmy Kilmister by performing MOTÖRHEAD covers at a special concert on December 28 at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Fan-filmed video footage of the "Killed By Death" and "The Chase Is Better Than The Catch" performances can be seen below.

Both songs feature the following lineup:

Vocals - Oscar Carlquist (RAM)
Guitar - Björn Gelotte (IN FLAMES)
Bass - Niclas Engelin (IN FLAMES)
Drums - Magnus "Adde" Andreasson (HARDCORE SUPERSTAR)

Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday on December 24, 2015, learned two days later that he was afflicted with an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, 2015, at his home in Los Angeles.

The MOTÖRHEAD frontman had dealt with several health issues over the past few years, including heart trouble, forcing him to cut back on his famous smoking and Jack Daniels habits.

The band canceled a number of shows two years ago, although they did manage to complete one final European tour on December 11, 2015.

MOTÖRHEAD released a covers compilation album, "Under Cöver" — a collection of some of the band's best covers — on September 1.
