Elvenking - "No Prayer For The Dying" (Iron Maiden cover)

Το single των Elvenking "No Prayer For The Dying"
There are times when I've wondered
And times when I've cried
When my prayers, they were answered
At times when I've lied
But if you asked me a question
Would I tell you the truth?
Now there's something to bet on
You've got nothing to lose

When I've sat by the window
And gazed at the rain
With an ache in my heart
But never feeling the pain
And if you would tell me
Just what my life means
Walking a long road
Never reaching the end

God, give me the answer to my life
God, give me the answer to my dreams
God, give me the answer to my prayers
God, give me the answer to my being


Οι Elvenking μας έρχονται από την Ιταλία. Σχηματίσθηκαν το 1997, αρέσκονται σε folk μελωδίες και power metal ρυθμούς. Δηλώνουν ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι Skyclad, Blind Guardian, Helloween, Nightwish, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Iron Maiden, Arch Enemy, Satyricon, Dark Funeral και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι:

«Pagan metal with the addition of the violin. Fresh and original sound that mixes enchanting melodies, heavy metal groove, catchy choruses and acoustic folk elements».

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δέκα "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους, ένα demo, ένα live album και εννέα singles. Το πλέον πρόσφατο αφορά διασκευή στο τραγούδι των Iron Maiden "No Prayer For The Dying" (από τον ομότιτλο δίσκο των Βρετανών metallers που "βγήκε" τον Οκτώβριο του 1990) και κυκλοφόρησε σήμερα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Our Italian folk power metal kings Elvenking recently (like so many others acts) had to postpone their European “Divination” tour dates but come around with a little ear candy to cheer up their fans: today the band unleashes their new single “No Prayer For The Dying” (Iron Maiden cover). We can only applaud them for choosing this quite unusual (and cool!) track and not go for just another "The Trooper" or "The Number Of The Beast" cover.»

Elvenking: «Dear Elvenlegions, This difficult year is coming with a lot of hard decisions and a lot of sacrifice. Especially now that we are all facing a global emergency. We were forced to cancel this year's headlining tour and this was really sad for us.

Anyway we want to make a special gift to you all by releasing this cover song we recorded during the sessions of "Reader of the Runes - Divination". It is a small thing to keep us all on track and to remind you that Elvenking is still here and that is still planning to release new music and to be back on stage (hopefully) soon.

We chose a song by Iron Maiden because it is THE band that deeply influenced our musical path and that literally changed our lives. Why "No Prayer for the Dying"? We know that a lot of Maiden fans think that this is one of their worst albums, but we always thought it hid a great potential, and this song is a true example.

We gave it the Elvenking touch and we really hope that you will enjoy it! So here's our gift to you Elvenlegions, take care and Stay Pagan! \m/»
