Even if it's just for one song, what bands do you feel sound just like Iron Maiden?

For me Cloven Hoof - Reach for the Sky or Highlander could be performed by Iron Maiden and no one would know it's a cover.

Kamikaze on Mira Hacia Lo Alto really catch that "Somewhere in Time" vibe with the chorusy guitars and the section at the middle of the tune.



There's also Crystal Zone on Fallen Star

Obviously Aria on Powersl- er, Hero of Asphalt. Because 1100 isn't the love child of The Trooper and Aces High. Some of the material on Play With Fire also had a more late-80's Iron Maiden sound, particularly the opening track which emulates the intensity of Moonchild, and "Бой продолжается" (which means The Fight Continues). I was thinking of the latter track a few days ago and was like "Fuck man, what Maiden song is that?" until I realized it was actually Aria a couple of minutes later.
