Maiden Heaven Volume 2– An All-Stars Tribute to British Metal Legends Iron Maiden is finally here.
Released with Kerrang Magazine Issue 1623 this 15 track free CD giveaway is the 2nd instalment from the rock mag that gave us Maiden Heaven 6 years back in issue 1219.
This freebie compilation also marks the occasion of Kerrang’s 35th Anniversary in which many rock and metal legends paid their own respects to the longstanding weekly publication.
Trivium makes another appearance to the Maiden Heaven series, only this time taking on a more mellow moment covering For The Greater Good Of God, while Stone Sour & Fozzy deliver their own faithfully bombastic versions of some of Maiden’s earlier back catalogue.
Reflecting the current trend of rock music we have Escape The Fate, Lower Than Atlantis & Creeper added into the mix to pay homage to the stadium megastars who play the Download festival in just 3 days away at the time of this post.
