Best Traditional Heavy Metal Songstruemetal
The Top Ten
A lot of Iron Maiden songs deserve to be in this list. But Hallowed be thy name for the win!
Yeah, I'm a Metallica fanboy, but this song rightly deserves to be #1. It builds and builds and builds...epic track from Iron Maiden's greatest album.
I can spend my whole life with this guys music - the best band on earth. I love maiden - thanks for giving such a great music - Karthik Blore
The way Blackmore uses the phyrigian dominant scale is crazy. He uses it to bring us back to the time of an Egyptian slave. Then, Dio's vocals bring us into the world of a man who worked his whole live for nothing when the man he was working for fails in his quest.
Epic. Dio and Blackmore killing it.
This classic is longer than the poem that inspired it. Epic Maiden.
It's hard rock. Great hard rock, but hard rock nonetheless.
Great vocal line, great guitars and bass. The drums are ok, but I could imagine rhythm and sound of drums if it was played by original and inventive Clive Burr R.I.P.
