Savage Messiah - Be Quick Or Be Dead (2014)

Song : Be Quick Or Be Dead
Performer : Savage Messiah
Origin: UK
Album : The Fateful Dark, 2014

On their latest 2014 album, UK thrash metaller Savage Messiah put a tribute to their comrade. Be Quick or Be Dead from Iron Maiden's Fear of the Dark album is one of the three cover track found on The Fateful Dark.  The most interesting point is we got to listen Dave Silver vocals. Dave put in a rough heavy metal voices instead for this rendition. The guitar riffs is a slightly different in color, extra aggresive chopping and also perhaps with additional chord to make it more thrashy. Every other else is quite original.

Styles: Heavy metal
Faithful to Original version: yes
Sound and Production: profesional recording

Sinisfear - The Trooper (2014)

Song : The Trooper
Performer : Sinisfear
Origin: Canada
Album : Reigning Death, 2014

Sinisfear is new death metal band from Canada. You may want to check their Facebook page where they are listed as Face Ripping Canadian Death Metal. Reigning Death is their debut album where we found The Trooper inside. This rendition of Iron Maiden classic is true to their description, a total face ripping version. It is in death metal mode. The other unbelievable thing is ultra killing drumming madness, of course the acting bass for Steve Harris is there to added more spices. In short, the backing vocals after the choruses as the only original parts left.

A fun version to face rip the Trooper, check their debut album and support the band.



Styles: Death metal
Faithful to Original version: least
Sound and Production: good quality recording
