Iron Maiden

I am not a particular Maiden fan (in fact I used to hate them in the ’80s for their “bring your daughter to the slaughter” song) but my husband is a huge fan and as I drove him to Star Trek, he seems to drive me over liking some of the songs of Maiden. πŸ™‚

Of course, having Bruce Dickinson being so damn hairy and sexy, helps a lot. πŸ˜€

Tonight we watched their video clips on DVD and some of these songs were performed with that Blaze guy that Maiden had as their singer from 1994 to 1998 or so. The guy is a very good singer *technically* speaking, but he fails miserably to have an impact with his voice. He was shouting hard on his songs, but he only managed to put me to sleep.

This is one great example of a person who CAN sing without mistakes, but having not a “signature voice” can ruin it all. Thankfully, Dickinson joined the band back at the end of the ’90s.

I think that the “Flight Of Icarus” is my favorite Maiden song. They have 6-7 more good ones. The rest ones, I am not so sure it’s really my style though.
