The new Iron Maiden album Senjutsu is not even out (releases Sept. 3, 2021) and Aussie metalers LORD have released a crazy awesome cover for the song “Stratego”. Listen to it now:
LORD are no strangers recording covers. They released 23 cover songs on their recent Undercovers Vol.1 album.
The band had this to say about the song “Stratego”:
It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that we’re massive Iron Maiden fans – a quick listen through our back catalogue will demonstrate that. We’re also, obviously, fond of doing cover songs (there’s 23 of them on our recent “Undercovers Vol.1” album).
One thing we tend to use cover songs for is for testing sounds or new recording techniques, and since we’re well into writing the next LORD release, we figured the perfect candidate for that was a cover of Maiden’s new banger, “Stratego.” This was a heap of fun to cover and put our own spin on, while still keeping faithful to the original. Join us in giving an appreciative nod to the masters!
