I was listening to some Iron Maiden last week specifically the Number of The Beast, and Power Slave. I have not listened to this in music in about 3 years and found it refreshing. Anyhow I was doing the dishes and I thought Iron Maiden have all the elements of Progressive rock. A high pitched singer, songs with significant time changes, lyrical content that could rival 70's Rush, long songs,and big stage productions yet these guys are always refered to as Metal. I look back and they are sort of cross between hair metal and Acdc looks wise, I mean their was some spandex but no make up and alot of jeans like acdc. Anyhow I wanted to know what TB'ers thought. I wish to be enlightened.
