This is probably the worst Iron Maiden tribute around, with covers that sound like piss-takes more than anything. The all-too-rare highlights on it do not justify the purchase of this album, unless of course you're a die-hard collector.
– Can I Play With Madness (Smith, Dickinson, Harris)
Could this be the Scandinavian answer to Oasis? No? It sounds like it, though...
– No Prayer For The Dying (Harris)
This song should be called "No Prayer For The Blast Beats" (the drummers out there will know what I mean). An interesting and quite nice Death Metal cover.
– The Trooper (Harris)
The vocals are... well, interesting. Grunts and growls. Are those people actually being serious???
– Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (Harris)
How to completely ruin a great song in one lesson: ask Infernal Torment. It is indeed an infernal torment to listen to this awful cover of "Seventh Son".
– Hallowed Be Thy Name (Harris)
"Hallowed Be Thy Name" is such a great song that it would require more effort than Powerage provided to totally ruin it. They apparently tried really hard, though!
– The Number Of The Beast (Harris)
This cover of "The Number Of The Beast" has the merit to be original and quite remote from the Iron Maiden version. So remote that only the lyrics give and indication of what this "loud mess" is about. Even if you don't put it on loud, it's still a mess! Awful!
– Purgatory (Harris)
Withering Surface are an excellent band, and their prove it with this unorthodox cover of "Purgatory". Without being really outstanding, this song is one of the best on this album.
– Charlotte The Harlot (Murray)
This is an unusual but efficient version of "Charlotte The Harlot". A breath of fresh air on an album that's really a bad surprise for Maiden fans. A bit Pop-ish, but very well made. Probably the best song on the album.
– Stranger In A Strange Land (Smith)
This is a decent cover of "Stranger In A Strange Land", close enough to the original but still in a good somehow "rocky" style.
– The Fugitive (Harris)
Headquake have the merit of covering here an Iron Maiden song that's not usually covered. That's about where their merit stops. The rap style is difficult to stomach, though, like a bad version of Rage Against The Machine.
