    IRON Maiden Rocks!!!

         Back in about '84, when I was in high school, a friend of mine offered to sell me the album "Stay Hungry" by Twisted Sister. I'd heard the song We're Not Gonna Take It so decided to by the album. I took it home, listened to it and loved it. At...

    Older And Wiser

    As a metal guitarist during the late 70's throughout the 80's, I never cared much for two-guitar bands. So I never really got into Maiden much during that period. Fast forward to 2006, I was watching Metal Mania one Saturday morning and was watching the Run To The Hills video...

    I will not say that I understand all their

    songs, actually I haven't even heard most of their songs, because I have a lack of patience, but I try to hear new songs, and from what I've heard, I think I'll be motivated to listen to more.

    Maiden Rules

    I first saw them when I was 16 years old.  The made it up to Sudbury, Ontario in 1984 on the World Slavery tour.  Twisted sister opened for them. I recently saw them again on the Somewhere Back in Time tour.  Way awesome.  I'm an airline pilot myself and...

    Midnight Warning

    Iron Maiden is by far my favorite British Metal band. And I love them from all ages. From Paul Di'Anno to present day. My favorite song was always 2 Minutes to Midnight. I even had an alarm set on my phone to play the chorus of that song at 11:58 every night. That's definitely...

    I think my favourite is Rime of the ancient mariner.

    Who Is Eddie?

    When someone mentions Eddie from Iron Maiden, which do you think of? Who is the most iconic, definitive Eddie? I think it's probably Piece of Mind era; specifically from The Trooper, but cyborg Ed from Somewhere in Time is definitely a close second.

    They Grow On You

    When I was first introduced to metal I did not really like Iron Maiden. One of my buddies gave my a bunch of their songs and I just left them there. After a while I just started playing them. They grew on me and they are one of my favourite bands now. They are unlike any other...

    Maiden England ...

    1982, to be specific! I was about 12 when I discovered the delights of Iron Maiden; a formative age for any boy really. Funny, that magazines like Kerrang! used to term Iron Maiden a kind of 'boys own' metal band, like the books of yore, detailing action and adventure.....it was...

    I absolutely love Iron Maiden! I think they're just so cool, and they're music is the best rock music I've ever heard. My favourite song is "Wicker Man" it's the best song I've ever heard and I love the ending. The first time I dicovered Iron Maiden was when I watched a Bruce...

    I'm an Iron Maiden purist.

    I think the greatest Maiden was the first 3 albums with Clive Burr on drums. Clive and Steve were just flawless together. I mean, musically they just lost the energy and tightness after Clive left. I stuck it out until Powerslave, and even forked over the cash for Somewhere in...

    Simply The Best

    I am amazed about every aspect of this band. Their music, their concerts, the incredible lyrics that the put together and the composition of notes is just amazing. If you appreciate good music listen to Iron Maiden.

    35+ years into their career

    and they're still rocking hard! That's what I really love about Iron Maiden: most of those big name bands from the '80s are either disbanded or washed up and obscure nowadays. But Iron Maiden, they're still making highly acclaimed albums, still topping charts all over the world...

    Wow.... I just heard The Book Of Souls

    and I gotta say it is actually a good piece of art, it's just good, the sound of all in general, it sounds like Maiden just wanted to do something that sounded new but same old style! There is no best songs in there although they are all good, in my opinion one of the best works...

    v=4zcQ-QWSKt4 This is the song "Empire of the Clouds". An 18 minute epic song about the fate of the airship vessel the R101. Truly a masterpiece by Bruce Dickinson. It's also their longest song to date. Typical of Iron Maiden, you're not just listening to a song. You're...

    Clive Burr - Rest In Peace

    Clive Burr, who played drums on Iron Maiden, Killers, and Number of the Beast passed away peacefully in his sleep March 12th. It's a sad day for heavy metal but many of his songs are still performed by the band and many consider The Number of the Beast to be the band's best...

    Best Band In The World

    I have seen them only four times but have been a fan since the beginning. My joint favourite albums have to be SSOASS, and AMOLAD. I recently saw them again in Dublin and had the best night of my life.
