KALAHARI keeps surprising us! The Italian modern metallers unleashed a new version of the Motörhead’s classic “Ace Of Spades” - full of groove and bombastic riffs! Watch the song visualizer exclusively premiered by Spaceuntravel: https://bit.ly/2WgYJvD
The singer Nicola Pellacani stated about covering this song:
"Ace of Spades" comes a long way in our history as a band. It was one of the first covers we jammed to and we often threw it in as an encore at the end of our gigs. It's a great song, it charges you up. As much as we love the original version, we felt like we wanted to give it our own touch, we are no tribute band, ya know.. We started by tuning down to drop A, threw some nasty growls in there and made it groovy as hell. Plus, since we wanted to emphasize the meaning of this song, that tells you to take your chances, to live hard no matter what is at stake, we added our own chorus and trust us, that part bangs hard! We hope you enjoy this cover, while we finish working on a few new songs in the studio. We are not stopping, just so you know. Much love!”
“Ace Of Spades” has been recorded at The Grid Studio, mixed by Jonathan Mazzeo, and mastered by Christian Donaldson. Artwork by Gino Annichiarico.

KALAHARI is a metal band born in Forlì (Italy) from an idea shaped in 2015, then realized two years later. The first demo entitled “Re-Burn” is released in 2018 and after one year of gigs throughout the underground scene, they go back to the studio to record their first EP: “Theia”. This record features the singles “Theia”, “Followers of the Lich”, and “Zombie Night”. During the same year, the band also releases a re-interpreted version of the Xmas classic “Carol Of The Bells”. During 2021, Kalahari release 2 singles ("The Ivory Tower" and "The Swarm"), showing a heavier and more characterized approach.
The band members have a musical background that touches different shades of the metal genre. The complicity between them and the passion for music brought them to create a unique blend of sounds, which makes it hard to label them within the Modern Metal panorama. Powerful break-downs and galloping riffs alternate with sinuous melodies: the result is an overwhelming sound, which remains clear and defined.
The lyrics deal with social and existential themes and take inspiration from strong feelings and from the events that cause them in the first place. Everything is rigorously presented in a metaphorical key.
KALAHARI is music made of strong sensations, that give you chills, and that is what these guys want to deliver to their audience.
