Stone Sour cover Maiden

Stone Sour have streamed their cover version of Iron Maiden classic Running Free.

It appears on their Straight Outta Burbank EP, to be released this week as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday campaign.

Frontman Corey Taylor tells Metal Hammer: “If you’re going to cover something, you want to go for the best. It’s no secret that I’m a huge Maiden fan.

Running Free had the spirit of what we were looking for – it’s kick-ass, it’s driving, it’s got the Maiden guitar breaks.”

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 (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) 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.
