Most Epic Iron Maiden Songs

wolphert

The Top Ten

1 Hallowed Be Thy Name

my favorite song of all time I know thats lame to say but it makes me cry and I'm a metalhead

Hallowed Be Thy Name just blew my mind!

2 Fear of the Dark
3 Dance of Death

the guitar in this is just epic

4 Sign of the Cross
5 Empire of the Clouds

How is this song not higher? At 18 minutes, it is Iron Maiden's longest, most ambitious, and dare I say one of their best songs.

6 The Legacy
7 Afraid to Shoot Strangers
8 Alexander the Great

Absolutely brilliant. It has everything that you want from music

9 Phantom of the Opera
10 The Longest Day

The Newcomers

? Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The lyrics, the way that guitar riifs are telling us this epic story and the most excellent vocal of Bruce just knocking me out every time I listen to this track. Pure awesomnes, Hallowed Be Thy Name is just another great song in the Iron Maiden history, but Rime of the Ancient Mariner blows mind in to the unkown frontiers of space and far away and, yeah, this trip is something you'll never forget and you will love it!

The Contenders

11 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
12 Paschendale
13 The Lonliness of the Long Distance Runner
14 When the Wild Wind Blows

I'm sorry, but why isn't sign of the cross on this list? In terms of Maiden epics, it has to be top 5.

15 Stranger In a Strange Land
16 To Tame a Land
17 The Trooper

The best iron maiden song of all time! Epic guitar solo catchy chorus and bruce waving the flag opn stage hell yeah!
