Best Iron Maiden Songs Over 8 Minutes


The Top TenXW

1Rime of the Ancient Mariner

This could be considered an opera. Three acts to the song, all the lyrics tell a story, the music drives the story, it's as close to perfection as I've ever heard a metal band get.

Remains my all time favourite, length has nothing to do with it

2Dance of Death

the song the dance of death is just beautifully sang and played and when I just need to relax I play this song.

This song is amazing and bruce's awesome voice and the story is amazing and the song is pure awesomeness :) this song is the best iron maiden non-single 8-mintues song - nooreldeen

3When the Wild Wind Blows
4Sign of the Cross

Eleven Saintly Shrouded Men
Silhouettes Stand Against The Sky
One In Front With A Cross Held High
Come To Wash My Sins Away

Amazing Dark Intro...

Lost The Love Of Heaven Above
Chose The Lust Of The Earth Below
Eleven Saintly Shrouded Men
Come To Wash My Sins Away

Amazing Dark Outro...

Really good song love it. Blaze's vocals are really good. But I like the Bruce Dickinson version too. Just splendid this song

Sign of the cross is good only if it had more vocals because after the intro two long verses and the chorus twice its 6 minutes of guitar then the chorus twice and another verse!

The sign of the Cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the Cross

Epic, especially on Rock in Rio

5Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
6The Talisman

This is an awesome song. The Final Frontier Album is very progressive and I like it. The other albums were great though too. This song should be a above the Clansmen.

7For the Greater Good of God
8Dream of Mirrors
10Alexander the Great

The Contenders

11The Clansman

The riff is brilliant! It doesn't actually matter whether it is Bruce or Blaze because I love maiden songs for their riffs! Lyrics are also good in this song, and so is the chorus! - teracom

This song is so epic and underrated. Both Blaze and Bruce does it awesome. - Origri
