    Never liked any of 'em - I must say that everything I've ever heard, has been fairly cringe-inducing! ;)

    Plus they look like middle-aged northern builders who are stuck in the 1970s, but think they look pretty hard in leather! :D
     
  3. Song - 2 Minutes to Midnight
    Album - The Number Of The Beast

    'Phantom of the Opera' from their self titled album has always been a favourite of mine!


    Although 'Number if the Beast' and 'Run to the Hills' and Hallowed be thy Name' from Number of the Beast have always been up there for me!

    As an aside, I just bought tickets to go and see them in Glasgow in December.......should be good!

    LOL!

    Fortunately for them Bruce, the rock/metal fans of this world disagree with you.....Iron Maiden are the UK's best selling rock band, having sold in excess of 55 million records worldwide!;)
     
  8. My Fav Maiden album is Piece of Mind. As far as fav tracks there are just too many to choose from IMO.
     
  9. phantom of the opera!

    This belongs in Recordings.

    Favorite album is Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.

    Favorite song? Hard to pick a favorite. Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Powerslave and The Clairvoyant would be near the top.

    Gotta be 'Hallowed ;)

    Aces high ranks pretty highly to me too.

    Brucy all the way, I'm not too keen on Paul dianno (spelling? :p) or Blaze baileys vocals.

    I too saw maiden recently, at donnigton 'downlaod' festival which was pretty cack apart from maiden :bawl:
     
  12. Somewhere In Time fav album.

    Remember Tommorrow, fav song.

    I named my favorite album,but forgot to name a song....Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

    I also like the cover of Jethro Tull's Crossed eye mary was cool too!

    Maybe I should have said Album's and Song's.
    Just to many good ones to choose only one!;)

    man, i've been a maiden fan since i saw them open for priest on the killers/screaming for vengeance (i think) tour.

    i can't say which is my favorite. i really like their work, it's definitely good heavy metal, imo.

    off to recordings. :)

    Album- X Factor, believe it or not. I love that record :)

    Song- so many... maybe Sign of the Cross, Infinite Dreams, Phantom, or Afraid to Shoot Stangers.
     
  18. I can't make up my mind.....I love them man!

    they're one of my favorite metals bands where there is no screaming involved..ah, I love songs like Flight of Icarus,Where Eagles, Somewhere in Time, Number of the Beast...........I can keep going on...

    sadly keep missing my chance to see them live too :(
