Hellsongs - Heaven can wait (video)

Hellsongs are pure schtick and I can't fully back them, but I do enjoy a good number of their well-chosen covers. This Iron Maiden tune translates to their style amazingly well and I think I may also like their new vocalist better than the original. If I believed in guilty pleasures this would surely qualify, but there's no shame in having a little fun. Direct link:

I am loathe to admit it, but their cover of "War pigs" is excellent. For a song that's been substantially played out, they did it justice. The official release date is September 23, should be wanting to purchase the digital version.
