So, first of all, I thought it would be a fun idea to warm up with Iron Maiden. “Run to the Hills” is 173BPM and I nearly broke my wrist! My partner (bassist) and I were listening to Muse on the way home from a trip to Berkeley and wondered why we hadn’t covered anything from the band. Enter, “Hysteria” and pounding, atmospheric, thrilling kick work.
