    Ok, check this edited version then, it's 6,28 minutes long:
    (it has both solos, not only Dave's solo like on the official video)

    EDIT: the second clip is a short version of the song officially released by Maiden on the CD single.



    Even Maiden cut it down to 7 minutes live :lol:


    I beg to differ. As @Randalf said, they're good (#2 and especially #3) and better than a lot of the singles covers from the reunion. Only TWM, TROBB and EOTC singles covers are far better.

    ''Virus'' single also has three covers. But this time they went with the best one IMO. I really like the short version of the song, which is 3,54 minutes long as opposite to the 6,14 minutes original version. I wanted the song to have a solo/s on it.

    1- this is the original cover for the single. Reminds me of the SSOASS era singles and the green background is superb. The best one of the three.
    2- this has to be one of the ugliest Eddies ever.
    3- this one is pure evil. Not bad though.

    The first cover was done by Riggs (he also done the cover for the compilation BOTB '96 from where this song is), but I wonder for the other two covers if the artist is Hugh Syme, the creater of TXF cover, since these two Eddies are similar to TXF Eddie.

    I’m disagreeing with you again. I’ve always loved that “#2”. One of my favorite Maiden covers ever. The other two are pretty cool as well.

    If you like that #2 cover, then you are a lunatic, my friend. :p

    I don't care about rating covers, but those three side by side are stunning. Digital, biological, and sociological virus.

    Wasn't the second one the cover for the vinyl single?

    It would be a great single cover for ''Death Or Glory''..... red triplane all over it. And the song is perfect for a single.

    This cover would be the continuation of the ''Aces High'' single cover. :yes:

    I've found this great artwork of Eddie - he is a tsar on it or something. It could have been a good album cover for TBOS, I suppose.

    Anyone knows from where is this artwork ?

    Someone's computer, it's sure not official.

    Yeah, for sure it is fan art made, but I wonder if it is related to a certain theme of a album or Eddie.

    At a really wild guess, it was inspired by TBOS. Looks like an attempt at a Mayan priest.

    That or a Native American? Or even El Dorado, the legendary man made of gold (see Scrooge McDuck). It looks like it's made in the vein of Holy Diver's cover, though.

    These are the original sketches from Riggs for SIT album cover. Eddie is with hair - and looks brutally good, even better than the original IMHO. :clap:

    Recent drawings of Eddie by Riggs - the pharaoh Eddie is brutally good.
