Any Iron Maiden Fans Here

I never really listened to Maiden because I HATE the only song I ever hear on the radio, "Run To The Hills". I recently listened to some harmonized solos on youtube and decided to check out Maiden.

I bought the Essential Album, I'm loving it. Cool early metal tone, and playing and songs like Pashendale, Rainmaker, Wicker Man, and Brave New World have really got my attention. I haven't finished both disks yet but I'm liking what I'm hearing.

Is the new album any good? Also, do they use Marshalls?

Iron Maiden are great. "Hallowed be thy name" is one of my favorites.

I love Maiden but I'm very picky about my Maiden. I think some of their stuff just kills, ...and other stuff just sucks donkey balls. I personally despised the new album and felt like none of the songs went anywhere, just dead space, and not "my" Maiden. Live After Death is my favorite, and Somewhere In Time, Powerslave and Seventh Son are great albums, though it took me years to warm up to the Seventh Son album.

One thing that is apparent when I listen to maiden, ...if you compare the record versions of their songs to the live performance, the live stuff just slays the record versions. When I hear the original CD version of the stuff on Live After Death, I think it sounds plum ridiculous.

Well, that's my 2-cents worth anyway. Everyone has their own opinions. Mine are strong on this subject.

I like the new albums. But I agree that they are good live when Bruce is on.
"Fear of the dark" is a freaking great live track. Gives me goose bumps.

Live after Death shows some great tone by Dave.

A piece of advice, turn off your radio.

Iron Maiden and Bruce pwns all...I can't believe you don't like Run to the Hills, it kicks ass, but yeah, its sorta like the Enter Sandman of Maiden, played way to much.

If you like Iron Maiden and never heard of Iced Earth, check them out too, similar but a bit heavier...

I love Maiden - many great albums in the 80's (Piece of Mind, 7th Son, Powerslave)...

Everything but the Blaze Bayley era.

I'm not wildly keen on the new one despite all the critics raving about it. One thing you could always rely on with all the albums was a bit you could sing in the shower - this one doesn't really have anything like that.

And the big three - Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind and Powerslave - are the best consecutive metal albums ever (even though Powerslave had the bog awgul Losfer Words on it and concentrated a bit too much on swordfighting...)
