The Iron Cross - 'The Trooper' (Iron Maiden cover)

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand, there's no turning back

The bugle sounds, the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses' breath
As I plunge on into certain death

The horse he sweats with fear, we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day

We get so close, near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds takes my horse below
ω And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Το συγκρότημα The Iron Cross μας έρχεται από την Ρουμανία. Δημιουργήθηκε προ επταετίας από τον κιθαρίστα Andrei Cerbu. Το 2017 η αποχώρηση αρκετών μελών έβαλε την μπάντα στον "πάγο". Δύο χρόνια αργότερα ο Andrei επαναδραστηριοποίησε τους The Iron Cross (οι οποίοι στο μεσοδιάστημα κυκλοφόρησαν το ντεμπούτο τους "Go Away") με νέα μέλη. Στο YouTube κανάλι της μπάντας υπάρχουν (και) βίντεο με διασκευές σε κλασικά rock / hard rock / heavy metal τραγούδια. Ανάμεσά τους και ο ύμνος των Iron Maiden "The Trooper" (από τον δίσκο του 1983 "Piece of Mind")...

The Iron Cross
Bio: «The Iron Cross band was started in 2015 by Andrei Cerbu, because he wanted to play Heavy Metal. He was listening to the “parents” of this music style, like Iron Maiden, when he got the idea of making a teen band which could have limitless energy and ROCK the crowd!

They appeared on many stages in Romania, opening for groups like Trooper & Phoenix. Unfortunately, in 2017, several of the original band members moved on to other parts of their lives. So this project had to be left behind, but not forever!

The year 2019 knocked at the door and Andrei felt that it was time for a new beginning. He brought the band back to life with new members, all of them ready to ROCK! All the band members are from Iasi, Romania.

In 2018, The Iron Cross released their first album, “Go Away”, which has 7 songs. Unfortunately, because of the break this project had, it took 2 years to make an official release on all platforms of this album. You can find it on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon etc.»
