Slave To The Power (2000) - CD 2

Another compilation of Iron Maiden tribute, a combination of hits song and some rare tracks. The highlight on this second part of CD, (see CD 1 commentary) is on first track Running Free by Iron Savior. But there, Iron Savior still largely a side project of Piet Sielck, who played in early versions of Helloween and more recently has worked as a sound engineer for Blind Guardian. Sielck drafted friend and fellow ex-Helloweener Kai Hansen and drummer Thomas Stauch of Blind Guardian (along with a couple of guest musicians) to complete the project. Then the still unknown Pharaoh doing Revelations, now Pharaoh is strong progressive power metal that produced good album. This version will also appear on Maiden America compilation album. Some song gone wild with weird and strange cover, such as The Trooper by Hoyry-Kone which included folk instrument, such as cellos. The other good track is Cosmosquad feat Ray Alder in Murders In The Rue Morgue, which is excellent re-arrange part of the song.

The package come with two CD, I will need to split the post due to technical reason for counting each song as a 'label' in this blog. The styles are quite diversed from heavy metal, doom to stoner metal. But then not much interesting as most of the quality are demo-like. 2/5 rating.
