Best Video Ever Of The Week: Flamenco Maiden

Posted by on November 29, 2010

Invisible Oranges tipped us off to Flametal, a metal flamenco band highlighted by guitarist Benjamin  Woods. Apparently, when a roommate stole his electric guitar, he turned to acoustic and discovered his talent for flamenco guitar. Flametal is a full band that plays original (and much heavier) music, but their third album, Heavy Mellow, is pretty much all Benjamin, all acoustic, and almost all covers. While there’s a rough similarity on the acoustic album to fellow acoustic shredders Rodrigo y Gabriela, Flametal’s covers of Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Yngwie Malmsteen and Queensryche definitely have their own sound. Check out their take on Maiden’s “Aces High.”
