Today is the 30th Anniversary of Iron Maiden’s debut album with Bruce Dickinson. The album that changed metal, power metal, and revolutionized the way metal is played and looked at it. You know what, I can’t sit here and repeat every single thing that has been said. So why not listen to a song-by-song of covers from the album?
Engraved – “Invaders”
Therion – “Children of the Damned”
Dream Theater – “The Prisoner”
Dark Tranquility - “22 Acacia Avenue”
Sinergy – “The Number of the Beast”
Jesus Christ, I couldn’t find a really good cover so I found the worst ever made. Fucking Talking Metal Jam with In This Moment.
“Run to the Hills”
(Couldn’t find a cover of “Gangland”)
Probably one of my favorite songs ever covered….
Machine Head – “Hallowed Be Thy Name”
Cradle of Filth – “Hallowed Be Thy Name”
Iced Earth – “Hallowed Be Thy Name”
**BONUS** Iron Maiden cover from Swedish Idol. “Run to The Hills”
