Im September 2011 kamen fünf gestandene Musiker zusammen um die allererste Iron Maiden Coverband der Schweiz zu gründen. Eddie's Beast spielt sowohl Klassiker, als auch unbekanntere Stücke aus der bald 35-jährigen Geschichte von Iron Maiden. Die Band besticht dadurch, dass sie die Songs originalgetreu und mit der gleichen Spielfreude wie ihre grosse „Schwester“ wiedergibt.
Eddie’s Beast is going to get all of you!
In september 2011, five experienced musicians decided to form Switzerland's very first, and only Iron Maiden coverband. Eddie's Beast plays all the classics but also lesser-known pieces from the almost 35-years long history of Iron Maiden. The band captivates by the fact that they're playing the songs very true to original and with the same passion as their big „sister“.
Eddie’s Beast is going to get all of you!
