Wilderun are currently working on the follow-up to 2019’s Veil of Imagination. While recently signing to Century Media Records, the group re-released the record in 2020, which included a cover of Iron Maiden’s “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.” Today (16th), the band has unveiled a video for the track.
Singer Evan Anderson Berry comments:
“I originally chose this song as a cover because I felt like we could really give it the Wilderun ‘treatment’, if there is such a thing. Obviously, we are partial to longer and more epic tracks, so choosing this song just made sense. I always enjoy when bands make cover songs their own, and try to make it less discernible from their core discography than you might expect, so that’s what we attempted here. Much of the guitar work still pays homage to Maiden, but we tried to match some of the atmosphere of “Veil of Imagination” with the symphonic elements, so it feels like it belongs to that same world.”
