Hamerex is UK heavy metal band formed in 14 August 2004. Not very much known about the band, but this is the cover version of Iron Maiden that played quite well, The Wicker Man. The song itself is performed close to their fellow Britain old brother version. The singer hits and missed the notes but it’s give a raw impression. The solos in The Wicker Man is tricky, the staccato open string part is always tricky to covered, if not performed in the best way it will give the impression of hit and missed there. Luckily the guitarist of Hamerex able to nailed this down.
