The track is new and has been written especially this collaboration. The British singer will remain in Romania until January 28th, and will have several appearances on radio and TV stations.
„As far as I know, it is the first time when a Romanian band pulls off a collaboration with a musician who is a former member of Iron Maiden. All five of us are big fans of the British band, therefore this moment bares a special significance for us. I saw him in 1995, when he came to Romania with Iron Maiden, and now we will spend three days together and we’ll record a Trooper song. It’s like a dream. Moreover, on the evening of January 27th, Blaze will be in the Hard Rock Café in Bucharest, to witness our performance as opening act for Nazareth. We’ve been trying for years to get a collaboration with Blaze, and one with Dickinson. Bruce has been extremely busy in the recent years, but I hope to be able to announce another major piece of news, in
early 2013” said Alin „Coiotu“”, singer of Trooper.
