THE GOLDEN BEAST

– A Tribute From Colombia To Iron Maiden –

28th February 2008

 

1. Wasted Years [Sigma]
2. Infinite Dreams [Entropia]
3. The Evil That Men Do [Legend Maker]
4. The Wicker Man [Perpetual]
5. Aces High [Noizart]
6. Be Quick or Be Dead [Introspeccion]
7. Can I Play With Madness [Terra Sur]
8. Flight of Icarus [Akash]


America did it. Spain did it. Hungary did it. Argentina did it. Now, Colombia's done it too!

This tribute album was quickly put together – with EMI's blessing! – just before Iron Maiden went to play Colombia during the Somewhere Back In Time tour. The precipitation of the recording explains the poor production, despite the obvious will of the local bands to show the boys and the rest world what they were capable of. The sleeve illustrations are magnificent, but the music is sadly not quite up to par. This album is only recommended if you're a proud Colombian or a die-hard collector.

  SIGMA – Wasted Years (Smith) Wasted Years – Commentary Wasted Years – Lyrics

Slightly faster than the original, Sigma delivers an efficient version of "Wasted Years" despite a somehow hectic solo.

  ENTROPIA – Infinite Dreams (Harris) Infinite Dreams – Commentary Infinite Dreams – Lyrics

Starting with an intro containing a piano-sounding synth, this is a rather strange cover of "Infinite Dreams". The funny sound of the synth tends to ruin a song that could otherwise have been quite enjoyable.

  LEGEND MAKER – The Evil That Men Do (Smith, Dickinson, Harris) The Evil That Men Do – Commentary The Evil That Men Do – Lyrics

Here, the piano is put to excellent use in this great Power Metal rendition of "The Evil That Men Do". The guitar solos are also rather good.

  PERPETUAL – The Wicker Man (Dickinson, Gers) The Wicker Man – Commentary The

With a promising piano intro, this cover ends up in a hectic Death Metal mess. This is just a waste of a good song.

  NOIZART – Aces High (Harris) Aces High – Commentary Aces High – Lyrics

Hardly anything can be found on the Web about Noizart, which is a shame as, judging from the quality of this cover of "Aces High", they must be a pretty good band. This song is one of the highlights on this album.

  INTROSPECCION – Be Quick or Be Dead (Dickinson, Gers) Be Quick or Be Dead – Commentary Be Quick or Be Dead – Lyrics

With a somehow noisy and un-promising start, this cover is actually not too bad – well, not as bad as the intro could have led us to believe. True to the original energy of Maiden's song, it is quite enjoyable and contains a Children Of Bodom-style guitar and synth solo.

  TERRA SUR – Can I Play With Madness (Smith, Dickinson, Harris) Can I Play With Madness – Commentary Can I Play With Madness – Lyrics

This is a pretty average cover of "Can I Play With Madness" that could have been performed by a bunch of college-goers at their yearly party. It's probably good for a sing-along once you're intoxicated enough. Oh, and the long ending was totally unnecessary.

  AKASH – Flight of Icarus (Smith, Dickinson) Flight of Icarus – Commentary Flight of Icarus – Lyrics

Musically quite close to Maiden's version, the originality of this cover of "Flight of Icarus" resides in that it's sung in Spanish. Quite interesting, actually!
