Iron Maiden + Judas Priest Classics Get Mashed Up for ‘Riding on the Powerslave’
We've got another metal mashup from the man who brought you the 'Megatallica' mashups. Instead of using the two thrash titans as his muse, The Taskmaster combined Iron Maiden's 'Powerslave' with Judas Priest's 'Riding on the Wind.'
If you're unfamiliar with the Metallica + Megadeth mashups, be sure to check out 'Welcome to My Darkest Hour' and 'Sandman Symphony.' Both are awesome, but 'Riding on the Powerslave' could be The Taskmaster's cleanest mix yet.
Under the name Iron Priest, 'Riding on the Powerslave' uses the voice of Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson from 'Powerslave' and lays it on top of the instrumental section of Judas Priest's 'Riding on the Wind.' Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford even drops in sporadically to harmonize with Dickinson.
The video combines live footage of both Maiden and Priest, delivering classic performances delivered in one tight-knit clip.
Watch 'Riding on the Powerslave' in the video player above!
