Sonic Altar - 2 Minutes to Midnight (2009)

Song : 2 Minutes to Midnight
Performer : Sonic Altar
Origin: New Zealand
Album : Video Release Only

This is perhaps the only entry from the Kiwis in this database of Iron Maiden's cover project. Sonic Altar is New Zealand latest heavy metal act. Their cover of 2 Minutes to Midnight also only a video release project, taped in 2009. The vocal is great in this video. Instrumentation follow closely to the original. The drum is a bit weird since the drummer seems only use one Tom Tom, hence a lot of usage of snare to fill. The band only released one full studio album, No Sacrifice in 2010.
