They’re British. They’re mighty. They’re METAL. They’re Iron Maiden! And earlier this year, KERRANG honoured them with a covermount CD of covers of their most famous tracks recorded by some of the bigest stars in metal today.

One such band was Roadrunner’s own MACHINE HEAD and Flynn and crew chose 1982’s HALLOWED BE THY NAME to record as their hommage to the band. Taken from their album of the same year, ‘Number Of The Beast’, the track describes a man’s thoughts just before being sent to the gallows… Ooh er!

Since recording the cover, the Machine Head guys have performed it live at some of their shows and here we bring you a killer video- featuring a mix of live performance and footage from the studio shot during the recording of the track- the guys have made for the track. Enjoy!!

The track is also available as part of the Special Edition of Machine Head’s THE BLACKENING- a strictly limited version of their most current album which is made up of 2 CD’s and a killer DVD of the band performing at Waken, Download and their Burn My Eyes anniversary show back in 2004 amongst others…

This killer version is in stores NOW and you can pick it up online HERE whilst stocks last…

The guys hit the UK on tour with SLIPKNOT next month and thrash legends Metallica in March 2009. Check out the TOURS PAGE for dates and buy online links.
