One of the brightest stars in the symphonic metal universe pays tribute to one of the biggest bands of all time: BEYOND THE BLACK releases their cover of IRON MAIDEN‘s “Wasted Years” – a splendorous, honorable and timeless homage with a strong female voice that just fits perfectly to the sonic image.
The song is available to stream exclusively on Amazon Music Prime, Amazon Music Unlimited, and Amazon Music HD here.
And for those who already are waiting to experience the song live – BEYOND THE BLACK will perform “Wasted Years” as Acoustic Version this Monday, September 27th, during the Rock Your Monday Live Show live on Twitch.
BEYOND THE BLACK states:
“This cover version is not only a heartfelt tribute to a band we admire, but also to the troubled times we live in. As always in life, our experience is a matter of perspective and we hope to be an anchor to those who could use some support at the moment.”
With their astronomical rise after the release of their debut album “Songs Of Love And Death”, the band around singer Jennifer Haben went supersonic – most recently reaching a number of impressive chart positions with fourth LP “Horizons”.
Lauded by press and fans alike, the band gained immediate international interest as they quickly became the most successful Symphonic Metal band to come out of Germany. Throughout their career they already shared stages with acts like AEROSMITH, KORN, SCORPIONS and WITHIN TEMPTATION.
BEYOND THE BLACK will start 2022 with a breath taking co-headline tour throughout Europe alongside label mates AMARANTHE. Tickets are already on sale, the pairing will be stopping at:
