Vocal Coach Reacts To Iron Maiden | The Trooper | Bruce Dickinson

Bruce Dickinson has a tradition of waving the Union Flag during Iron Maiden performances and more recently he even started wearing a red coat uniform.

The outfit is in reference to the subject of the song “The Trooper” which I’ll be reacting to today.

The song was written by bassist Steve Harris and the title comes from a poem by Lord Tennyson which describes the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava 1854, during the Crimean War.

Released as the second single off of their fourth studio album Peace of Mind, the song was of a few tunes by Iron Maiden that gained regular airplay in the US and peaked at No. 28 on the US Mainstream Rock charts.

The track was included on Guitar Hero 2 and was used as the opening theme for the documentary series Metal Evolution. The band even created a beer called Trooper named after the song.

Today I’ll be reacting to a more recent performance of the tune. Check it out and let me know what you thought!

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
Honestly man, you are not going to find a bad review here. The course and this forum completely demystifies every single aspect of great singing. Just be prepared to do the work.”
