Hi guys,

Today I discovered an incredibly cool music disk for the Amiga. It was released in November 2014 at the Compusphere demo party in Sweden where it won the Wild Demo Competition. The release I’m writing about is called “Stuck Somewhere in Time” and was made by three groups – Up Rough!, Insane and Titan.

The special thing about this music disk is that it is a big compilation of Iron Maiden songs in chip tune format! Here you can listen to gems like The Clairvoyant, 2 Minutes to Midnight, Fear of the Dark, Blood Brothers and The Trooper. The musicians have for sure done an incredible job making catchy computerized versions of Maiden hits. Right now I’m listening to 2 Minutes to Midnight while typing this.. 😀

Fortunately you don’t have to own an Amiga to enjoy this music disk. The authors have uploaded a video rip of it to YouTube for everyone to see. I’ve embedded it below for you to enjoy:

For those of you running Amiga computers or using an emulator, please find download links below:

I’m curious about what you guys think about this production. Did you enjoy it? 🙂 I certainly do and I will come back to listening to it again and again.

Thanks for reading and see you in another post! 🙂

  1. It kind of looks and sounds like a lot of those classic menu sections of the action games between all of the classic consoles from 8-bit to 16-bit. It looks pretty cool and it isn’t jittery or stuttering, but it tends to get boring looking at the logos bounce back and forth and change colors, and just “Somewhere In time” Eddie bouncing in place. Would’ve been cool if they animated some more to it, or maybe used the songs as a running theme for something.

    “The Trooper” sounds the best out of the collection. \m/
