Made In Scandinavia

MADE IN SCANDINAVIA

26th December 2000

 

1. Can I Play With Madness [Supersilent]
2. No Prayer For The Dying [Ofring]
3. The Trooper [Frozen Sun]
4. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son [Infernal Torment]
5. Hallowed Be Thy Name [Powerage]
6. The Number Of The Beast [Loudmess]
7. Purgatory [Withering Surface]
8. Charlotte The Harlot [Slip Into Silk]
9. Stranger In A Strange Land [Roadkill]
10. The Fugitive [Headquake]


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.

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

Could this be the Scandinavian answer to Oasis? No? It sounds like it, though...

  OFRING – No Prayer For The Dying (Harris) No Prayer For The Dying – Commentary No Prayer For The Dying – Lyrics

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.

  FROZEN SUN – The Trooper (Harris) The Trooper – Commentary The Trooper – Lyrics

The vocals are... well, interesting. Grunts and growls. Are those people actually being serious???

  INFERNAL TORMENT – Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (Harris) Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son – Commentary Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son – Lyrics

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".

  POWERAGE – Hallowed Be Thy Name (Harris) Hallowed Be Thy Name – Commentary Hallowed Be Thy Name – Lyrics

"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!

  LOUDMESS – The Number Of The Beast (Harris) The Number Of The Beast – Commentary The Number Of The Beast – Lyrics

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!

  WITHERING SURFACE – Purgatory (Harris) Purgatory – Commentary Purgatory – Lyrics

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.

  SLIP INTO SILK – Charlotte The Harlot (Murray) Charlotte The Harlot – Commentary Charlotte The Harlot – Lyrics

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.

  ROADKILL – Stranger In A Strange Land (Smith) Stranger In A Strange Land – Commentary Stranger In A Strange Land – Lyrics

This is a decent cover of "Stranger In A Strange Land", close enough to the original but still in a good somehow "rocky" style.

  HEADQUAKE – The Fugitive (Harris) The Fugitive – Commentary The Fugitive – Lyrics

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.
