This is Rare Maiden performing Iron Maiden's Aces High at The Apollo Live Club in Helsinki, Finland. Unfortunately due to technical issues our live audio was mostly unusable so we have used dubs to improve the sonic experience here. Eddie has an aeroplane made from a blue IKEA bag fused with beer can wings and a gun made from a wind up torch, it's all in the name of fun. We were competing in a Finnish corporate music competition called Company Rock.
Rare Maiden is a tribute/coverband to Iron Maiden from Helsinki, Finland. We formed in 2015 as a side project to all our members original bands because we all love Iron Maiden and most members have dreamt of covering their songs and paying tribute to the Irons for a very long time.
We play mixed sets that mainly pull from rarely played songs, meaning tracks that Iron Maiden themselves have either not played live or have played only on one or two tours. We add in a few old live classics but we never play Run to the Hills, The Trooper, Fear of the Dark or Iron Maiden, these are done everywhere else!
We choose our songs from our 'Feast of the Beast' menu, which has a selection of rare, medium rare and well done songs that we constantly grow at rehearsals.
