A long-lost promo video that Motörhead had filmed to promote their 1982 album, Iron Fist, and its supporting tour has finally been officially released.

The unearthed clip shows the “Ace of Spades” trio — frontman Lemmy, guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor — dressed as medieval knights searching for the mythical Iron Fist weapon.

Forty years later, you can now watch the video, soundtracked by the previously unreleased instrumental demo “Ripsaw Teardown,” streaming on YouTube.

Iron Fist was the follow-up to 1980’s Ace of Spades and would be the final Motörhead album to feature the band’s classic lineup of Lemmy, Clarke and Taylor.

As previously reported, Iron Fist is being reissued on September 23 in honor of its 40th anniversary. The deluxe collection features a variety of bonus tracks, including demos, alternate versions, instrumentals and live recordings.
