Iron Maiden classic gets 2Cellos revamp

Classical duo 2Cellos have released a video for their version Iron Maiden classic The Trooper, mixed with Rossini’s William Tell Overture.

It follows their revamp of AC/DC’s Thunderstruck earlier this year.

And Maiden themselves appear to approve, calling it “a pretty sweet cover” on their official Facebook page.

Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser first grabbed attention in 2011 with their take of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal. Their second album In2ition was produced by Bob Ezrin and released last year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
