    Ok Description From Metal-Temple.com

    "Run To The Hills": Legendary all-time Iron Maiden classic, found on one of the greatest Heavy Metal albums ever released, "Number Of The Beast" (1982, EMI) - and was also on the first (same titled) single for that album. Though Robin McAuley gave me the feeling he’d do well on this track (at first), after a while I didn’t feel I liked the vocals, they just felt a bit weird I guess. Not bad, definitely not bad overall (and Michael Schenker kicks ass as usual on guitars), it’s just that I’d probably like someone else on the vocals of this particular cover. Of course it’s always hard to get used to someone else other than Bruce Dickinson...

    "Wasted Years": Probably Iron Maiden’s MOST nostalgic song ever written, found on 1986’s superb "Somewhere In Time" (which also features the never-to-be-witnessed-at-a-gig ode to the great Greek general..."Alexander The Great") and of course on the same titled single which came out in 2 different versions, one of them featuring the really entertaining (in a funny sense) "The Sheriff Of Huddersfield" (written for their - now - longtime manager Rod Smallwood). Oh my, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) gives his own - awesome - vocal version of this song, accompanied by ex-Dokken musicians George Lynch and Jeff Pilson (on guitar and bass respectively), the always magnificent Bob Kulick on guitar and a legendary drummer’s son (who’s also one hell of a musician), Jason Bonham. What more can I say? This is one of my favorite tracks on this tribute.

    "Wrathchild": Now here’s a "weird" cover... "Killers" (1981, EMI) was singer Paul Di’Anno’s final album with Iron Maiden (and the band’s second full length). Ages went by, Iron Maiden marched on a glorious highway to glory and are now one of Heavy Metal history’s most significant bands. But what about Di’Anno? He really "vanished" for a long period from the "scene" and re-appeared somewhere in the late 90’s with a rather obscure style than what we were used to - definitely not Maiden - but later (apparently) noticed how unsuccessful all that was and focused more (I guess) on doing live gigs, playing his all time classics from back in the day when he was a part of Iron Maiden. Well, to be quite honest with you, I was quite afraid of what I’d hear when I read "Paul Di’Anno - vocals" on this track’s lineup. Thank goodness, Paul’s performance (this time...) was fairly ok, unlike what he sounds like live, at times. I guess the studio’s always an easier place to be singing in rather than on stage. I’m not really here to judge a musician who’s played a major role in the music I love the most - just to express the concern I had before listening to the track. All is well though, there’s even a high-pitched scream by the end of the song that really amazed me. I only wish he could constantly keep it this good...

    "Flight Of Icarus": Featured on 1983’s "Piece Of Mind" (EMI), the best track in my opinion off this Maiden record - also a single that came out in 2 versions (again). For those of you who don’t know who Ripper is, I guess you don’t listen to a lot of Heavy Metal, do you? Ex-Judas Priest singer, probably the best (back then) replacement Priest could have found after the band’s split with Metal God Rob Halford. Now in Iced Earth he’s screaming behind the microphone on behalf of guitarist/mastermind Jon Schaffer and I guess all goes well anyway. Ripper’s voice is one of the best I’ve ever heard for Heavy Metal covers of all sorts. He’s covered (apart from Judas Priest tracks before joining them) known songs before, like for example Black Sabbath’s "War Pigs" or Ozzy’s "Mr. Crowley" and now the time had come to cover this Iron Maiden classic along with "oh shit, oh shit": Dio/Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich, Dio/ex-AC/DC drummer Simon Wright and Dio/ex-Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain. Best cover on this tribute - a remarkable performance by Ripper.

    "Fear Of The Dark": One of Iron Maiden fans’ favorite sing-along tracks all over the world. Originally found on the 1992 same titled full length release, I never wondered how come it’s almost on every "best of"/live Iron Maiden compilation. Here we have an interesting vocal approach by Testament’s Chuck Billy, a more "brutal" (no, not brutal as in Deicide’s Glen Benton, hehe) version, an overall more dark interpretation of this song. Nothing to blow my whistle about but definitely of some interest. Mikkey Dee (Motorhead) is behind the drums here...

    "The Trooper": Talk about famous Iron Maiden tracks... Originally found on "Piece Of Mind", it was also a single release (featuring "Crosseyed Marry"...ah, what a track!). I’ve heard various Rock/Metal vocalists try to cover this one before. Yup, I’ve heard Sentenced kill the poor song, I’ve heard Machine Head try it out (bleh), Dream Theater cover it quite well, etc. I never really expected though to hear Motorhead’s Lemmy sing it... On the other hand, he has sung *** Pistols’ "God Save The Queen" and Metallica’s "Enter Sandman" before and he always seems to have what it takes to make a song even "groovier" in a way. You either love his vocals no matter what he sings or you hate him - but to my knowledge most rockers/metalheads love him, so you’ll definitely enjoy this cool version of "The Trooper". Note: bass duties are not handled by Lemmy on this track (must have felt weird for him...) but by Chuck Wright (Alice Cooper, Quiet Riot).

    "Aces High": Is it ever an easy thing to say "this album’s the best Iron Maiden album"? Surely not for me. Nevertheless I would consider "Powerslave" (1984, EMI) one of Iron Maiden’s star releases, "Aces High" being in it, along with other classics like "2 Minutes To Midnight", "Powerslave" (covered in other tribute albums), "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner" and "Flash of The Blade" etc. On the other hand, you’ve got Jeff Scott Soto, a musician who knows the word "covers" all too well. He’s sung on covers ranging from Madonna’s "Frozen" and Prince’s "Purple Rain" to Ozzy’s "Shot In The Dark", Steppenwolf’s "Born To Be Wild" etc. The question was for me, though, how well he’d manage to sing a song like this one. Verdict: Just fine, especially in the refrain. The rhythm section (which is a vital part of this song apart from the vocals) is handled by one of the best bassists around nowadays, Mr. Billy Sheenan and I hope you don’t go "who’s this?" when I say... drummer Vinny Appice (well, in an case: ex-Black Sabbath, ex-DIO, ex-Axis etc). Really good cover.

    "2 Minutes To Midnight": Again, a track off the "Powerslave" album, which was also a two-versions single - one of them being a real rare collectible, the "2 Minutos Para La Media Noche" Mexican release. Joe Lynn Turner is (as most of you might know) quite the "here and there" singer, meaning he’s been involved in more things I could remember right now (Deep Purple, Rainbow and HTP being the bands that come in mind straight away). I was really curious to listen to this cover sinceTurner’s the singer on one of my all-time favorite Rainbow tracks, "Street Of Dreams" (1983, Polydor). He’s not bad on "2 Minutes To Midnight", nor are his famous mates on this cover - Ritzie Kotzen on guitar (I bet it was easy to have him play on this track since they’re friends), Chris Slade (!!) on drums and oh well, Bob Kulick (of course) and Tony Franklin - but I have the feeling he could have done a tad better.

    "Can I Play With Madness": If there’s an album that absolutely marked my life as a teenager, that would definitely be "7th Son Of A 7th Son" (1988, EMI). Iron Maiden’s "darkest" album with Bruce Dickinson in my opinion; a feeling you certainly don’t get from nowadays’ releases. Mark Slaughter’s singing wasn’t cheesy as I was afraid it would be. Of course, "Can I Play With Madness" is one of my least favorite tracks off that unimaginably exceptional Heavy Metal album and personally I would have loved to listen to this lineup try out for example "Moonchild" or "The Evil That Men Do" (instead of Chris Jericho, who’s effort I didn’t really like...). Anyway, it’s a nice attempt.

    "The Evil That Men Do": As I mentioned in the paragraph above, this cover is definitely - to me - the worst cover on this tribute album. I don’t dislike WWE wrestler and Fozzy mainman Chris Jericho, it has nothing to do with that, it’s just that his voice sucks so much this time - it really made me wonder why on Earth he chose to cover this track instead of anything else. The only one "saving" the situation here seems to be guitarist Paul Gilbert (Racer-X, ex-Mr. Big) whom I really admire as an axeman.

    "The Wicker Man": Ah, one of Iron Maiden’s tracks from their recent chapter (the reunited, post-Blaze era we’re currently in). Originally found on 2000’s "Brave New World" album, also released as a single in 3 (!!!) different versions (I’m not sure if there’s a 4th one but there may be...), "Wicker Man" is a catchy Maiden song but not one of the best songs on that album. The Armored Saint/Anthrax team of John Bush (vocals), Jeff Duncan (guitar), Scott Ian (guitar), along with the rest of the lineup on this trac, could have covered something else and surely in a better way than what they did on this cover. Yup, I’m not impressed, thrilled or happy with this one - unfortunately - and it’s a pity since they’re all great musicians.
