well, I got Drumkit from Hell, and decided to use it on something easy by making a cover of "The Trooper", my favorite Iron Maiden song.

There's still no bass though, but I think that with the new drums it sounds a hell of a lot better than most of my old tracks, especially with the guitar tones I have dialed in on my amp, which (I think) sound really tight.

A tip to do bass. Oh and awesome job too!

You did a really good job. But it seemed as though parts phased in and out, like silent and loud. And if you don't have a bass, lower your E and A strings down an octave. Then crank up the bass on your amp and tweak to how you want it to sound.


Yeah, it was close to the original, but c'mon. It doesn't have bass! The solo was great, the drums were good, but not close to the sound. They need to sound more in the song, and have more echoes just as the NWOBHM style. You did a great job, 9/10 and 4/5.


ive been trying to cover this song for the longest time now
ten for you cause you actually did it

3 things

1st) It's Iron Maiden, so that gives you credit before I've even listened to the song.
2nd) Wold be better with some lyrics, especially after the intro, it just seems to stop.
3rd) DAMN MAN!!! You're good, I mean REALLY good! I still can't get that solo down, so for sheer awesomeness I give you 9/10, 4/5 and thumbs up!


The Guitars sound pretty awesome, and it could do with some bass.

There's only 1 problem i noticed, the mixing could be better. The lead on the solo is a bit loud and the drums are a bit quiet. The way i see mixing is when you can here everything clearly and the drums be as loud as they can without distorting or overpowering the guitars.

The drums could be improved. I spend a lot of time mastering drums. Adding effects like echo or reverb, I compress and eq them. Spend time on it. The drums don't sound bad, but could be a bit better.

The Guitars, sound fuckin awesome. Especially the leads. I would give advice on the guitars, but i don't know much about the buggers :D. But they sound epic so even if I was a guitar god there wouldn't be much advice from me :)

I look forward to hearing more from you, this is a pretty awesome cover :D!
