Slave to The Power (2000)

Slave to the Power (2000)

Another compilation of Iron Maiden tribute, a combination of hits song and some rare tracks. Such as Total Eclipse by WarHorse & Friends, a British doom metal band. This version make the song into doom and slow tempo. The compilation started with New Jersey stoner metal band, Solace covering Another Life. The version hence turn into heavier and Black Sabbath-ian style. But the highlight of the this CD is on Sebastian Bach excellent rendition on Children Of the Damned. Giving a bit Skid Row feel. Then is Kamelot team up with singer Ian Parry to do Flight Of Icarus. Kamelot is a rising symphonic power metal band on that year, and Ian Parry was to be Ayreon singer later.

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. 3/5 rating.
