Ok metal heads...Which of these two kings of metal do you like better? I have a buddy whos totally obsessed with Iron Maiden. The guy has 4 eddie tattoos, and plans to get many more. I love to bust his chops about how Priest is so much better, have been around longer, and probably influenced Iron Maiden. It always makes for good conversation, so I thought I would pose the question here. Anyway, I have a hard time saying which band is better-I love both bands. I personally like Iron Maiden's music a little better. Plus Steve Harris is a big influence for me. For the title of Kings of Metal, I would give it to Judas Priest. Due to the fact they have been around for longer. I also like thier guitar players better. But its a tough call. What do you think?
