Performer : Erik Gronwall
Album : Erik Gronwall 2009
I know Bruce Dickinson not very keen about singing contest ala the Idol, but this is the version done quite well by the alumni of Sweden Idol champion. Erik Gronwall is the winner of Sweden 2009. In his show, he was performing Iron Maiden Run To The Hills to the jury and audiences with confidence, and to be recorded later in his prize debut album. The vocal is good, as expected from the singing champion. The instrumentation is faithful with blazing guitar solos, I still searching the responsible guitarist for this version. Unfortunately in studio version, the drum is missing many important signature drum in this song. Erik Gronwall to be front a hard rock band H.E.A.T. and to be collaborated with member of KISS as well.
Great vocal from the Swedish Idol champion.
