Side B:
DESTRUCTION - Princess Of The Night (SAXON cover)
TANKARD - Iron Maiden (IRON MAIDEN cover)


Commented THE BIG TEUTONIC 4:

Mille Petrozza, KREATOR: "As teenagers we were die hard fans of RAVEN. This song perfectly reflects the lifestyle back then and was the second cover version we recorded in a studio."

Tom Angelripper, SODOM: "When TANK released The 12“ Single 'Don`t Walk Away' in 1981, it was the first time I got in touch with this awesome band and the title track is still one of my favorite songs. They inspired me to become a die hard metal fan until the rest of my life and keep my own band as a trio ensemble."

Schmier, DESTRUCTION: "Shortly before we formed DESTRUCTION we were all together at a SAXON concert in Switzerland on their "Denim & Leather" tour. 'Princess...' always was on of my all time fave tracks from the british NWOBHM masters - this very unique riff was already the first step into speed metal, by that time we did not know how important this evening was - a night and a song that has definitely influenced us all the way!"

Gerre, TANKARD: "The first two MAIDEN albums are my personal favorites so it's a real honor to me, that our version of 'Iron Maiden' will finally be available on vinyl. It was super fun to record and even Paul Di'Anno once said in an Crossfire interview with Rock Hard magazine that he liked our version. There couldn't be any better accolade and we're very exicted to see THE BIG TEUTONIC 4 continued."
