I went through a major Iron Maiden obsession in late high school/early college. I even contributed a review to their then-new Brave New World for my History of Rock and Roll class (yes you read that correctly). My love for their material of the 1980's with Bruce Dickinson behind the mic has never really dissipated. Iron Maiden is without a doubt one of the most influential metal bands ever and are one of the genres "sacred cows". There's very little negative discussion about their prime-era material. And for good reason. The band simply put out great album after great album. Iron Maiden is a legendary band.
FAVORITE ALBUM: SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON
