Late MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister‘s long-awaited solo album could finally arrive before the end of 2017.

According to Metal Talk, Jim Voxx of the German band SKEW SISKIN revealed that he was putting the finishing touches on the disc, which has been in the works for a number of years.

“I still don’t know when it will be released because this is in the hands of the MOTÖRHEAD management, and it took a while,” Voxx said. “Lemmy had so many things left, there are so many other recordings, and they all had to sort out how to proceed and there is no real time rush to release this album, so I can imagine it will be towards the end of this year.”

Lemmy had collaborated with SKEW SISKIN on several occasions, including on two songs which were slated to appear on his debut solo album. Those two tracks — reportedly titled “Stand Upon The Mountain” and “Don’t Matter To Me”— were being produced by Voxx at SKEW SISKIN’s Monongo studios in Berlin.

Voxx added the project started in 2003, but Lemmy “didn’t have a real idea what would be on it, so he came to me and asked me if I would work with him.”

“He wanted to take his time,” Voxx explained. “It was the total opposite of working with MOTÖRHEAD because he had to do it in his free time between the MOTÖRHEAD work. I gave him the possibility always to come here and work in the studio whenever he needed, and step-by-step we got the songs together. We have 10 songs, and we thought it would have been released a long time ago, but when Lemmy got ill, we stopped working on it, but the recordings were all done.”

Lemmy revealed in a 2013 interview that he was thinking about calling his debut solo album “False Teeth For The Deaf”. He said: “It’s all just great rock and roll, that’s the only way to describe it. Some of it is bluesy and some isn’t. It’s not MOTÖRHEAD, but obviously there are elements in common.”

Lemmy‘s solo album is expected to include two songs that were recorded with the REVEREND HORTON HEAT (described by Lemmy as “some good psycho-metal-billy”), two with THE DAMNED (including a cover of THE DAMNED‘s “Neat Neat Neat”), a track with Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA) and a cut with Joan Jett.

Kilmister said in 2013 that he was planning to lay down a song with SKUNK ANANSIE vocalist Skin for his solo album, but it’s not clear if those recording sessions ever took place.

At least a couple of the tracks Voxx produced for Lemmy‘s solo album feature a full horn section, a saxophone player and a blues piano player.

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.

There are only a few 1980’s Speed Metal/Power Metal/ Thrash Metal/ Death Metal acts that never sold-out. Most of the 1980s Power Metal and Thrash Metal bands sold-out by 1985, and 1987 was the year of the Slow-Down Syndrome, where Thrash Metal bands were making Thrash Metal Records for The Conventional Pop/Rock/Metal fans, ie the ones who never liked them in the first place. 1987 has a historical high for heavy metal bands to wash-out/wash-up/ going off the rails/ or actually selling out. After August 12th, 1991 was the next big era of bands selling out, because of the dominance of the Exhorder/ Pantera sound within the heavy metal community. Tons of bands folded into Groove Metal, and NuMetal acts.
 
So I have tons of respect for Lemmy and MOTÖRHEAD, for keeping the vision of true metal alive, while the artist he inspired sold-out one after another. When a band sells-out, after 1996 we called that “PULLING-A-METALLICA”  
Motörhead 40 years of the GREATEST HEAVY METAL BAND OF ALL-TME !!!!!!!!!!! 
 
So yea since Lemmy never washed-up, sold-out, went off the f@cking rails, or sold-out, went edgy pop, or cut his hair and MOTÖRHEAD never changed there logo as well as there sound. Thrash Metal bands never knew how to deal with the death metal age which started in July 27,th 1990, so I loved MOTÖRHEAD releases year in and year out. The only band from 1980, I have been a heavy metal fan since 1978, so I know who sold-out when, to what sound/ style and to what trend.
 MOTÖRHEAD has been a real inspiration to actual true heavy metal fans since there incepti0n. And since they are still the progenitor band of this publication, we cover TRUE METAL, ie, fans in the MOTÖRHEAD family of bands. As well as the best of the best in all genres of music. We cover all things KICK ASS and BAD ASS, and all things authentic. Most record collectors have a huge lack of understanding of the concept of authenticity, because they have none !!!!
We are a GOTHIC METAL/ AVANT -GARDE -age as well as a DEATH METAL age publication. I have been a heavy metal fan since 1978, and one of the first things you notice about 1980’s metal’s artist there were 2 periods in time where the 1980’s metal bands sold-out, 1985 and 1987 are years that stick out thrash metal artist had a sell-out all there own called the SLOW DOWN syndrome. Very few if  any 1980’s bands could cut it in the 1990’s is. When the GOTHIC METAL age and the DEATH METAL age and the AVANT-GARDE METAL age,  metal sellouts happened one after one until AND THERE WERE NO NONE. While GOTHIC METAL does not have the concept of “selling out” or artist are some of the softest and some of the hardest, a lot of my readers who are thrashers. If one is to take serious the concept of band’ selling out, which we do not, just were showing of our acumen and point out the bad journalist by metal publications who refuse to accept there favorite artist are no longer part of HEAVY METAL GOLD STANDARD….THE HIGHER A BAND RANKS HERE, the more we play there CD’s and ALBUMS to determine the album of the year….For example we always thought Metallica were a better artist as a Alternative band from LOAD until Do than they were ever a Metal artist, they are better served as a Alternative Metal band ever than when they were thrash metal hero’s. But since there AlternicA albums are not the GOLD STANDARD albums for he Alternative Metal Genre, we have to say so. Myself I said this is a GOTHIC METAL and a AVANT-GARDE – age as well as a Death Metal age publication, myself I dress in Business Suits and attend Classical Music concerts just as much as I attend Hair Metal, Thrash Metal and Gothic Metal Concerts!!
This is just a insight as to why certain bands are covered here and why other bands rank below the under 99.1 Percentile, they may make out top 100 albums for a quarter or a year, but will not get the enough spins on our turn tables to even qualify for album of the year. Every record review gets 250 spins 21 days time 12 hours, for a accurate reviews. And in October the top 10’s of each album will get 500 hours each for listens to determine the best of the best in song-writing as well as song-writing architecture in terms of compositional excellence at the WORLD-CLASS level, and keep in mind virtuosity is also a key factor, but always keep in mind we always make sure WORLD-CLASS VOCALIST are featured, here as much as possible, and when a band sells out/washes out/ or goes off the rails, we always provide a immediate successor act to follow in there footsteps if a peer is not found. then we move on to the next most vicious metallic act on planet metal. In 2017 metal fans have it better today now, than we ever had in it in the GOLDEN AGE OF HEAVY METAL August 1st, 1981 to October 30th, 1986. 2016 WAS A TOP 5 YEAR IN HEAVY METAL’S HISTORY, on parallel to 1983,1984,1985,1986,1990,1991,1994, 2003. THERE ARE 9 GOLDEN AGES OF HEAVY METAL…and we try to cover each one evenly, but when the World’s GREATEST HEAVY METAL BANDS release albums, they will get the priority coverage…!!! I have work on a few hundred top 100 album of all-time committees, since 1980. And if you were never invited to work here, is because you were never there as a heavy metal fan back in May 1979 or August 1983 like I was, sure I trust and respect my peers….!!! I lived a full live most are trying to recreate, via nostalgia by living in the past, but still goes over everyone’s head that if you want to know about the best artist of a GOLDEN AGE YOUR TRYING TO RECREATE, it is never found on the internet, before the internet every distribution network for record labels had fanzines. Fanzine are a specialized press for RIFF BASED HEAVY METAL  
In this article we will try over the next year to get every KICK*ASS*METAL band on this list !!!! So consider this list as a work in progress
