A little over two years ago, before his untimely death in 2015, Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister stepped into the shoes of a smooth-talking, booze-guzzling vampire for Phoebe Dollar's horror movie Sunset Society. Now, with the film's spring 2018 release drawing ever closer, the time's finally come to witness the late legend in all his blood-sucking glory. Lemmy's character makes several appearances in Finnish goth-rocker Jyrki 69's new "Bloodlust" video, which pays homage to the upcoming film. Behold!
Directed by Vicente and Fernando Codero, "Bloodlust," which appears on Jyrki 69's forthcoming solo LP Helsinki Vampire, relocates the Sunset Society cast to a gaudy nightclub, where they drink, dance and — because this is a horror movie — carry out occult rituals. Lemmy spends most of the video watching the debauchery from afar, occasionally cutting off the extended sulk session to sink his fangs into a beautiful woman's neck. "Aren't we all so glad to see that Lemmy's doing all right?" Jyrki 69 mused in a statement to Rolling Stone. "He lives forever!"
Lemmy's appearance in Sunset Society — the cast of which also features Guns N' Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed, L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns and porn icon Ron Jeremy, among others — isn't the only posthumous content in the pipeline. Back in March, Skew Siskin guitarist and longtime Lemmy collaborator Jim Voxx announced that he'd be taking up the reins on the departed idol's long-awaited solo album, which he hopes to release by the end of the year. "We have 10 songs, and we thought it would have been released a long time ago", Siskin said in an interview with MetalTalk.net. "But when Lemmy got ill, we stopped working on it — but the recordings were all done."
