To Tame a Dream Theater Maiden Cover

(Metal Underground) Legendary progressive metallers Dream Theater have recorded a cover of Iron Maiden's "To Tame A Land" from 1983's classic album "Piece Of Mind." The song will be on a special CD issued with a forthcoming issue of Kerrang! magazine. More details as they surface.

An interesting fact about the song is that Iron Maiden originally wanted to call the song "Dune" as it was inspired by the science fiction novel (and later film) of the same name. When the band originally sent a letter to Frank Herbert's (author) agent for permission.

The response read as follows: "No. Because Frank Herbert doesn't like rock bands, particularly heavy rock bands, and especially rock bands like Iron Maiden." Songwriter Steve Harris tried to convince Herbert that the song would be a good promo for the book, but he still refused. Bassist Steve Harris once referred to the song as the best he'd ever written and wanted the song to start with a spoken word quote from "Dune." - more metal news
