Brand New Video For MOTÖRHEAD’s 1998 Cover Of METALLICA Classic ‘ENTER THE SANDMAN’

9 May 2023

Noise titans MOTÖRHEAD and METALLICA were friends for a very long time. The latter played on Lemmy’s 50th birthday concert in 1995 all dressed up as the great man himself, under the moniker of The Lemmys. In turn, Motörhead paid homage to some of Metallica’s best known exploits, even winning a Grammy for their version of Whiplash in 2004.

Lemmy‘s gang also covered their 1991 classic ENTER THE SANDMAN in 1998.
That version was part of a compilation that didn’t reach many fans of both bands.

The Motörhead curators decided to give the iconic cover the attention it deserves
with a brand new video for it produced by Mulberry Creative. It’s an animated one,
showing a horrifying nocturnal journey through the nightmares of a child who is
haunted by the evil sandman in his dreams, and is ultimately saved by the powers
of the inimitable Motörhead ‘Warpig’.
