Re: [Academy of Anvil] Re: Formula
- There you go! Di Anno kicked ass, it's too bad that he had alcohol problem. We keep "Iron Maiden" and "Killers" in the car. It's different and honestly my favorite songs are on these two album. "Prowler, Running Free, Phantom of Opera, Another life, Prodigual son, Murder in the rue Morgue...etc", are unique. It's not only about the voice but the beat. I think that when Clive Burr left, it changed completely the style of the band...I loved Maiden but after "The number of the beast", I don't know I didn't have the same feeling when I was listening. I don't think that there's something wrong posting about other bands, Anvil opened for Iron Maiden in 1982 and it was something!

I didnt intend to turn it into an Iron Maiden Discussion
to me they arnt even on the same page as ANVIL
I only mentioned them because people often say that
they Like Iron Maiden because they never change.
I despise Bruce Dickinson maiden these days.
I used to be a huge fan. But now I wont even play them
For my maiden I choose Paul Dianno LIve at the Whiskey.
Paul Dianno Solo stuff Blows Bruce dickinson out of the water.
But ANVIL just does circles around it all.
Keep the faith.

> My favorite Iron Maiden was in the mid to late 80s, like Powerslave,
Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son. And I did enjoy Brave New World,
but I think the three-guitar lineup is too cacophonic live; I saw them
during the Ed Hunter tour and they only sounded truly great when
Yannick Gers was spinning his guitar around and not playing :) To me
the key person is Adrian Smith, who is the melodic player in Maiden,
and he was gone for a long time, during which period the albums
weren't so great.
