Finnish Folk Arrangement of Iron Maiden's 'The Trooper' Appears Online
22
Finnish band Steve N' Seagulls (see what they did there) have upped the stakes in the unconventional metal covers game, after posting a Finnish folk arrangement of Iron Maiden's 1983 classic "The Trooper." The rendition features a unique arrangement incorporating stand-up bass, banjo and mandolin. Check it out below.

In other Iron Maiden news, Lars Ulrich recently conceded to Maiden frontman's Bruce Dickinson's suggestion that his band was better than Metallica. Asked for his thoughts on Dickinson's comments, the Metallica drummer responded:

"I will never argue with that. I will always support Bruce Dickinson in whatever nonsense he says. That's part of the fun. So go Iron Maiden! It's fine."

    Just want to point out that this isn't exactly a ''Finnish folk arrangement'' since actual Finnish folk is quite different... I'd say this is more like some sort of redneck-country-thingy

    Yeah. None of the instruments belong to Finnish folk music and yeah, the music style didn't really sound Finnish either.

    Tremendous. On a side note, those guys sing better English than I speak it (and its my native tongue).

    Suomi Finland perkele! A pretty funny rendition, I think. Don't understand why the Lars Ulrich/Bruce Dickinson thing had to be mentioned yet again, though.
