Run To The Hills
It was not long ago when I first saw an acoustic Iron Maiden cover made by Thomas Zwijsen for the song “Fear Of The Dark.” The cover was more than brilliant and made me press the replay button for three times. Then today another Iron Maiden cover from Thomas popped out and I decided to check how many covers this guy already made. He made quite a few already mainly solo, but there are some with fellow guitarists, a singer and even violinist.
I have come to the conclusion that a (top) 10 acoustic Iron Maiden covers by Thomas Zwijsen list is a must. I collected one of my favorite songs from Run To The Hills and Fear Of The Dark to Aces High and Can I Play With Madness and six more. If you would like to check even more masterpieces from Zwijsen, go subscribe to his YouTube channel and enjoy watching and listening. Make sure you also show him some love and support by liking his Facebook page.
I think we can safely say that all his acoustic Iron Maiden covers plus all the rest and incredible. Enjoy!
