ABOUT THIS COVER, OPERA IX ONCE SAID:

Surely the cover "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" wasn't our fave Iron Maiden song, but there were few songs left to choose... and then this one is very long...in the typical Opera IX style. With the add of keyboards and some changes to the lyric (too much solar for my taste!) we have written another little chapter of Opera IX history.

The general sound of that Iron Maiden cover isn't so good. This song was recorded in few hours in an Italian studio. In Italy there aren't any good recording studios (and this is the reason why we recorded The Black Opera abroad and the same we will do with our 4th album). Anyway, with our surprise, Opera IX's version of Rime of the Ancient Mariner had a great success in USA. A Call to Irons vol. I, the comp. CD where this cover appears, sold around 30.000 copies in USA and this allowed Opera IX's name to be well known also overseas. Dwell Records, the US label, has a big distribution and works professionally, so after the positive experience of A Call to Irons, we are still working with them.
