IRON MAIDEN

Without question the greatest of all "Heavy Metal" bands if you encompass just the words heavy metal. The band has been playing since 1975 and had their first major release in 1980. They have since their inception created the music they love and never wavered on the quality or direction of their music. They started out hashing their brand of melodic metal and created a bit of stir in the metal world. Then they rose to great heights of popularity and continued to craft their metal works. The style of music they played faded yet Iron Maiden continued to bring their loyal devotees the same quality music constantly reproving their ability to write, and present metal that people wanted to hear. Since the reformation of the original lineup with Brave New World there's been a real Maiden resurgence and to me that's a good thing.

This Tuesday they release on DVD/Blueray and CD Flight 666 the next in Maiden live material. 22 cities, I think 25 shows in all, spanning 36,000 miles all in a lightning fast 45 days. VH1 actually aired the show last night starting at midnight and I got to catch it and I can say it was pretty damn cool.

This list then is just a small tribute to the greatest heavy metal band of all time. Add as you will I did indeed leave out some very obvious additions because I'm curious to see what others would link. However if you are not a fan of Maiden please move on and don't cause problems, thank you.

There is a Maiden microbadge as well for those who are interested.

There are other metal microbadges out there too you can find them if you like but this is a Maiden list so there's the link you need for that one.

UP THE IRONS!

"Iron Maiden can't be fought, Iron Maiden can't be sought."

A logical staring place but not much to say here other than the name is sort of in place. Certainly not my favorite Maiden song but seemed fitting. I know NOTHING of this line of games. Moving right along.

I'm a huge E. A. Poe fan so this song based on the first fictional detective in literature is awesome to me. I know it's not one of the "classic greats" by the band but it's cool to me. I've only played one Mystery Rummy games and was unimpressed. Thoughts on this one?

"My son ask for thyself another
Kingdom, for that which I leave

This song closes the album Somewhere in Time and maybe not the most well known song from the album (certainly not) but I liked these longer songs they did that told the stories. This was a great well crafted song too! Phalanx games have a real knack for either being very good or very dull. I read somewhere here on BGG that a user considers them like "Drama" films in comparison to say "Action" films. Interesting.

Sure I know the song is part of a story line that has NOTHING to do with Arkham and Cthulhu mythos but I dig the song (who doesn't?) and the game is pretty damn sweet too...though I think it's over expanded now.

"Watching horror films the night before

The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks

On dancing shadows from behind."

I always found it interesting that a dark and ballsy metal band would just go out on a limb and talk about a human fear of something as simple as "The dark" when nothing is really there. Very cool of them! We are all human when you boil it down. I've never played this line of games and know nothing of them in honesty. Everything else I've played by Twilight Creations has been pretty mediocre in my opinion.

There are so many things wrong with this entry. 1 the song isn't really based on the movie (though the song by the same name by Bruce Dickinson as a solo song is.) 2. in the movie they weren't cannibals, they just killed the detective. Still I LOVE this song. I LOVE the movie Wickerman too but that's something else. This song kills, I really feel Brave New World is one of their best albums in the new era. Welcome back Ardian. TPOC Looks funny, I've got interest in this one.

The opening lines of The Prisoner TV show and the song from Number of the Beast. I had seen The Prisoner in it's entirety as reruns on PBS way before TNOTB came out (my dad watched stuff like that so I did too) so there was an instant hook on the first Maiden record (cassette actually) that I owned as a budding metal head in high school. Epic song. Never played the game, it might be pretty rare.

The Lyrics to "Run to the Hills" are kind of a downer but the song kicks some major ass. Incredible intro that screams it's way into the rest of the breakneck pace of the song. Easy to see why this was a "hit" compared to everything else Maiden had put out up until that time. Another game I haven't played.

"To Tame A Land" is 100% about Dune. Stephen Harris is a Dune fan. So am I but I'm not the best bass player in the world like he is. Really cool and kind of trippy guitar/bass thing going on here. Interesting story: Frank Herbert threatened legal action against the band many years ago and when they played the song live they had to say "planet June" instead of "planet Dune". He said the band was satanic. I love the works of Frank Herbert but he needed to chill on that one. From the (excellent) album Piece of Mind

Funny, the boardgame has the same rating as this album, as far as I'm concerned. Actually, both this and the above game are rated poorly or unrated. Coincidence?

Other than the two Blaze anomalies, which I don't even consider Maiden albums (sort of like Episodes I-III aren't really Star Wars movies), Maiden has been a favorite of mine for years and one of the first two or three bands that introduced me to metal back in the day.

Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the most awesome song the Irons ever recorded! I love this song, especially the tempo changes. Real concept song - and it clocks in at something like 13 minutes! I've listened to it a lot over the past four weeks since finding Powerslave in the local library, of all places.

Helps that the poem is an epic too.

Watched this song performed live - don't know how Bruce remembered all the words. I can't even remember the six line stanza above, and they are my favourite lyrics from the song.

Lets not forget this great song from the latest album:
Quote:
In the gloom the gathering storm abates
In the ships gimlet eyes await
The call to arms to hammer at the gates
To blow them wide throw evil to its fate

All summers long the drill to build the machine
To turn men from flesh and blood to steel
From paper soldiers to bodies on the beach
From summer sands to Armageddon's reach


The Longest Day is one of the best songs about the Normandy Invasion, grand and sweeping in its tale, the guitar and drum work is top notch.

The sands of time for me are running low.



Hallowed be Thy Name from Number of the Beast.

In my opinion the greatest Maiden song ever recorded. Epic, Angry, Melodic, Atmospheric... everything an amazing song should be.

Covered by so many bands, including Cradle of Filth, Solitude Aeturnus, and Iced Earth.

Let me tell you a story to chill the bones
About a thing that I saw
One night wandering in the everglades
I'd one drink but no more

I was rambling, enjoying the bright moonlight
Gazing up at the stars
Not aware of a presence so near to me
Watching my every move

Feeling scared and I fell to my knees
As something rushed me from the trees
Took me to an unholy place
And that is where I fell from grace

Then they summoned me over to join in with them
To the dance of the dead
Into the circle of fire I followed them
Into the middle I was led


One of my favourite IM songs. I like almost the whole "Dance of Death" album. I used to be a great fan, but I had my share of falling out with the band recently, especially due to the fact that I was rather dissapointed with the "A Matter of Life and Death" album. It seems that it's extremely repetitive and Dickinson is slowly losing his voice power... But that's just my opinion.
I added ATOE because I couldn't find a better entry, and I'm a fan of the game.

The only place where you can dream, living here is not what it seems.
Ship of white light in the sky, nobody there to reason why.
Here I am, I'm not really there, smiling faces ever so rare.
A let's walk in deepest space, living here just isn't the place.

Stalks of light come from the ground, when I cry there isn't a sound.
All my feelings cannot be held, I'm happy in my new strange world.
Shades of green grasses twine, girls drinking plasma wine.
A look at love, a dream unfolds, living here, you'll never grow old.


Another one of my favs. I love the first album and though I consider Bruce to be the best IM vocalist, the things sang by DiAnno are also high quality stuff.
Don't know anything about the game.

"Strange World" from "Iron Maiden"

My favourite IM song. Absolutely underrated (I think it was played live once) and it comes from the best Iron Maiden album.

Is there any game of running marathons?

The first Maiden song I ever heard. I had a friend from school who made me a compilation of various heavy-metal bands back in 1984. This tape was responsible for my conversation into hevy-metal.

And the 1st song was "Where Eagles dare" from the "Piece of Mind" album. I still enjoy the bass line whenever I hear it.
