“Preserved in Time” is Zwijsen’s ultimate Iron Maiden tribute album. It makes the
classical guitar world a bit more metal by adding 16 Iron Maiden songs (and two Bruce Dickinson songs) to its repertoire.
After getting well over 2 million views on YouTube, Dutch
classical guitarist Thomas Zwijsen released his album Nylon
Maiden on January 8th. The album contains 11 unique arrangements
of Iron Maiden tracks on classical guitar. Additional musicians
on the album are Anne Bakker, Nathanael Taekema, Tony Newton
(Voodoo Six) and Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden).
Thomas' second album ‘Nylonized’ was released
on March 11, 2014. Nylonized contains tracks from several
artists and original compositions; featuring (former) members
of Dream Theater, Europe, Threshold, Cream 69 and Iron Maiden.
