One of Australia’s longest-running heavy metal bands, LORD, have released a cover for IRON MAIDEN’s “Stratego”.
The band issued:
It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that we’re massive Iron Maiden fans – a quick listen through our back catalogue will demonstrate that. We’re also, obviously, fond of doing cover songs (there’s 23 of them on our recent “Undercovers Vol.1” album).
One thing we tend to use cover songs for is for testing sounds or new recording techniques, and since we’re well into writing the next LORD release, we figured the perfect candidate for that was a cover of Maiden’s new banger, “Stratego.” This was a heap of fun to cover and put our own spin on, while still keeping faithful to the original. Join us in giving an appreciative nod to the masters!
Iron Maiden’s 17th studio album “Senjutsu” is available worldwide on September 3rd through Parlophone Records (BMG in the USA). Learn more at Maiden’s official website HERE.
LORD is essentially a continuation of DUNGEON, one of Australia’s longest-running heavy metal bands, with over a dozen releases so far. LORD’s 2021 release “Undercovers Vol.1” debuted at #7 on the Australian ARIA charts and #1 on the Australian Independent Records chart. This eclipsed the band’s 2019 full length album “Fallen Idols” that debuted at #20 and #2 respectfully.
