Probably the most underrated Maiden-song. It's my favourite, incredible song.

The guitar harmonies in the middle are similar to those from "Phantom of the Opera", a true stroke of genius, this song is my favourite Iron Maiden song of all time!

My personal favourite on the album. Such an underrated song - wolphert

6 The Duellists

'Back in the village' and this one definitely are part of the most underrated Maiden songs. Actually two classics which never have been played live. What a shame!

Amazingly crafted song with superb vocals and quite possibly the catchiest chorus ever. The instrumental section in the middle is nothing short of fantastic. A true masterpiece.

This one is a real epic. You know this one, you know what Maiden is about. You will never understand why it was never played live. I mean we all know 20 versions of 'The trooper'.

Can't really decide which one I love most: The duellists, Back in the village or Aces High. This one rules by Bruces outstanding singing and the mind-blowing guitar solo. Up the irons!

7 Back in the Village

Filler. Not a bad tune, but certainly not better than anything else on the record. - EddieVanHalen2001

Most people just think "It's on powerslave, of course it's good" but don't appreciate it as its own song. Listen to it right now and tell me it's not a sick and perfectly executed song. - Songsta41

This song rocks


Its an intro to powerslave in a way
Its hard to believe that blank is higher than this haha man you guys make me laugh

Instrumental? Maiden? So low?
