Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Fear.

The men, the myth, the legend. Iron Maiden have had the kind of career that most dream of and hardly anyone can attain, a going concern since 1975 and seemingly only getting stronger, judging by their latest offering “Senjutsu”. However, we’re going back to 1992 and the title track of the album of the same name for this weeks head to head because they’re ain’t nothing like a little nostalgia. Many a band, including Graveworm, Pentagram and Sturm und Drang have of course done this deal with the devil but how about something a little different?

In the Blood Red corner we have a Symphonic Metal rendition of the Iron Maiden classic created for “Whirlwind of Mad Men” by Black Hole and finds them joined by Roland Grapow (ex-Helloween, Masterplan) for a guest guitar solo. He also handled the mixing and mastering of the album as a whole. What in the World happened to Fightstar? One moment they were going hell for leather with their Deftones influenced musings and dropping classic covers like this one that appeared on the Kerrang! album “Maiden Heaven” and the next minute… Busted are reforming and releasing a synth pop album. Ah well, at least we have this. Who wins? You decide!
