Beyond The Black are one of the biggest up and comers in the world of heavy metal. The symphonic metal band also happens to love Iron Maiden. They’ve released a cover of the classic Maiden track from Somewhere In Time, “Wasted Years”. The song streams exclusively on Amazon Music Prime, Amazon Music Unlimited, and Amazon Music HD.
Beyond The Black will perform “Wasted Years” as an acoustic version live on the Rock Your Monday Live Show on Twitch, this Monday, September 27th.
Here’s what the band had to say about the cover.
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.
The band released their debut album Songs of Love and Death and a new LP Horizons. They both took to the charts around the world. Beyond The Black are heading out on a co-headlining tour of Europe with Amaranthe in 2022. Check out tour dates below:
