  • Anton Gustafsson better known by his stage name Anton Maiden, (born 24 February 1980 in Kinna, VĂ€stergötland – died 1 November 2003 in BorĂ„s, VĂ€stergötland) was a Swedish Internet celebrity who achieved fame around 1999 by singing over MIDI and MOD-versions of Iron Maiden songs.
  • He became famous as a phenomenon of geek and DIY culture. He started by publishing some songs on the Internet for a small group of friends.
  • After being encouraged by them, he made some songs available to the public in his album Anton Gustafsson tolkar Iron Maiden, which was distributed under Lunacy and Nihilism record labels.
  • In an interview with the Swedish newspaper Expressen (dated June 2000), he told journalist Martin Carlsson that Iron Maiden fans "think that my interpretations are a disgrace to Iron Maiden.
  • But that was never my intent." Apparently led by feelings of depression, Anton Gustafsson committed suicide in November 2003, and was found dead in BorĂ„s after having been missing for a week.
