SOMEWHERE IN HUNGARY

29th October 2002

 

1. Powerslave [Iron Maidnem]
2. 2 Minutes To Midnight [Fahrenheit]
3. Flash Of The Blade [Stonehenge]
4. The Trooper [Demonlord]
5. To Tame A Land [Nemesis]
6. The Clairvoyant [Obstruction]
7. Aces High [Nottingham]
8. Prowler [Stainless Steel]
9. The Evil That Men Do [Perfect Symmetry]
10. Wasted Years [Da Capo]
11. The Number Of The Beast  [Rudán Joe & Iron Maidnem]
12. Hallowed Be Thy Name [Iron Maidnem]


This is one of the rarest and one of the best Iron Maiden tribute albums out there. Performed exclusively by Hungarian bands, the song are incredibly good, but what needs to be noted here is also the quality of the illustrations, made by a certain Hjules who has a wonderful graphical talent. If you happen to see a copy of this album, do not hesitate to buy it.

  IRON MAIDNEM – Powerslave (Dickinson) Powerslave – Commentary Powerslave – Lyrics

Iron Maidnem (whose name translates "almost iron") being an Iron Maiden cover band, they deliver a version of "Powerslave" that could easily be confused with the original, except for the voice which, although very good, is obviously not Bruce Dickinson's.

  FAHRENHEIT – 2 Minutes to Midnight (Smith, Dickinson) 2 Minutes to Midnight – Commentary 2 Minutes to Midnight – Lyrics

Fahrenheit is a band that seems to have disappeared, which is a shame because if their original material was as well-made as this cover of "2 Minutes To Midnight", they must have been really good.

  STONEHENGE – Flash Of The Blade (Dickinson) Flash Of The Blade – Commentary Flash Of The Blade – Lyrics

This unusual and original version of "Flash Of The Blade" is very enjoyable. This Progressive Rock outfit did an excellent job.

  DEMONLORD – The Trooper (Harris) The Trooper – Commentary The Trooper – Lyrics

Like most other songs on this album, this is also an excellent version of a great Maiden classic. Incidentally, Demonlord opened for Iron Maiden at the Kisstadion of Budapest during the 2003 Give Me Ed Tour.

  NEMESIS – To Tame A Land (Harris) To Tame A Land – Commentary To Tame A Land – Lyrics

This is an original cover of a great epic by an excellent Progressive Metal band. Simply brilliant.

  OBSTRUCTION – The Clairvoyant (Harris) The Clairvoyant – Commentary The Clairvoyant – Lyrics

Musically pretty close to the original, this version features some interesting vocals. Not bad.

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

The addition of synths makes this cover quite good, although the voice sounds unfortunately a bit too "pop-ish". A good cover nevertheless.

  STAINLESS STEEL – Prowler (Harris) Prowler – Commentary Prowler – Lyrics

Although the voice lacks a bit of aggression, this cover of 'Prowler' is quite decent.

  PERFECT SYMMETRY – The Evil That Men Do (Smith, Dickinson, Harris) The Evil That Men Do – Commentary The Evil That Men Do – Lyrics

Quite remote from Iron Maiden's version, this is a brilliant cover of "The Evil That Men Do", featuring also a discreet piano- and jazzy-sounding synth.

  DA CAPO – Wasted Years (Smith) Wasted Years – Commentary Wasted Years – Lyrics

With a fairly obvious synth, this version of "Waster Years" is pretty different from Maiden's original, slower and somehow heavier. And quite good too!

  RUDÁN JOE & IRON MAIDNEM – The Number Of The Beast (Harris) The Number Of The Beast – Commentary The Number Of The Beast – Lyrics

Singer of Pokolgép (a band that opened for Iron Maiden at the Sports Hall of Budapest during the 1984 World Slavery Tour), Joe Rudán supplies excellent vocals to Iron Maidnem for this very good version of "The Number Of The Beast".

  IRON MAIDNEM – Hallowed Be Thy Name (Harris) Hallowed Be Thy Name – Commentary Hallowed Be Thy Name – Lyrics

This is a brilliant rendition of Iron Maiden's all-time great song. As usual, Iron Maidnem do a wonderful job to reproduce the studio version song almost note for note.

After some 30-40 seconds of silence at the end of the song, you can hear "Die With Your Boots On" followed by "Flash Of The Blade", both presumably played by Iron Maidnem too.
