    The union between metal and horror has powered up again thanks to a new video showing The Conjuring star Vera Farmiga belting out Iron Maiden's The Trooper with Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian shredding away on guitar. 

    The performance took place at The Rock Academy, a performance-based, interactive music school run by Jason Bowman providing lessons to both adult and child students, which sounds pretty great to us and it to Farmiga who showed her appreciation for the program in the description for the Instagram upload of her performance which you can see below. 
     

    The original version of The Trooper appears on Iron Maiden's Piece Of Mind watch the video below. 

    Piece Of Mind was the follow up to The Number Of The Beast  which just turned 40! 

    Released on the 22nd of March 1982, The Number Of The Beast is home to some of Iron Maiden's most celebrated works including undeniable metal classics Run To The Hills, The Number Of The Beast and Hallowed Be Thy Name.  A landmark metal album that is held dear by metalheads worldwide, The Number Of The Beast holds a special place in the hearts of the band as well, speaking to Maniacs last year, guitarist Dave Murray named the album closer Hallowed Be Thy Name one of his two favourite contributions to Iron Maiden's legacy.  

    We've had a bit of a debate on our socials recently about what is the best Iron Maiden guitar riff or guitar part. I'm curious, what's your favourite?
     

    “Oh, well there’s two actually. I love the intro from Hallowed Be Thy Name, it’s always really nice to play that. The second one takes us back to the early ‘80s, and it’s the solo from the song Killers. I remember that we used to play that one live a lot before we actually recorded it and I always really enjoyed playing it back in 1981, and it’s funny but it still stands out to me for some reason now, all these years later. There’s something about that song.”

    Watch the video for The Number Of The Beast below. 

    To mark the 40th anniversary of The Number Of The Beast Iron Maiden have launched a commemorative cassette that is available to order right now from Maniacs! 

    The cassette is comprised of the 2015 remastered recordings of the original eight songs on the album as listed below, with front cover colour art based on the 1982 C-60 cassette release plus a re-designed & updated inlay. Ultimately it’s a tribute to a watershed album that sold in its millions in record stores all around the world; a celebration of those bygone times and a fitting souvenir for the fans who have loyally followed the band ever since.
