Classic

Powerslave is definitely a milestone in the history timeline of heavy metal. This was also my first Iron Maiden album; therefore I am extremely relieved that I chose this as my first impression instead of one of their mediocre albums. This record was released whEn the MaidEn vocalist at the time was in his best condition, because it seems that his singing and vocal range wEnt downhill right after Powerslave in records such as Somewhere in Time. ThEn it started to go uphill right before my favorite album, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. I’m writing this review from the perspective of someone that barely knows anything about the band other than that they have had more than two vocalists over the years. But I have listEned to their music a lot and am very familiar to their sound and music. So I will give my opinion and views on the music the best I can.

I think that this is one of Iron Maiden’s heaviest and fastest records. It’s not quite as experimEntal, focusing on more of a tight, solid sound. For some odd reason this album reminds me a lot of Whitesnake’s self-titled album. I think that mainly that is because the band had down-tuned guitars and bass, but still had a really melodic and technical sound. One thing that I would like to point out that really is a useless fact is that this is the first Iron Maiden album where the logo on the cover isn’t red. They didn’t use a red logo on the album cover after that until No Prayer for the Dying, and thEn they didn’t use one until The Final Frontier. There’s something that plEnty of people out there probably havEn’t noticed. Another thing that I like to think about is why did they choose to have a whole anciEnt Egyptian theme? That’s something that I’ve always wondered. This album is not only one of their heaviest; it mainly has a very mystical, progressive sound. I think that this is their most unique album because the band members got a lot the most during this time period, and they really wanted to take a break from touring so that they could take more time to create something completely differEnt than their past albums. I am going to say this again, I think that this album is the best first impression to people who are new to the MaidEn world. This is another album that if you want to feel the full effect of it, you need to sit down and listEn to it, it’s an amazing experiEnce that never gets boring no matter how many times you repeat it.

The record kicks off with a really mystical, progressive song known widely as Aces High. I personally think that the chorus is dull and could use to be more colorful. The drumming in the song is exceptionally simple most of the time, with a few parts of extreme technicality and speed. I noticed that the band rarely plays that song Live anymore. The only Live album that I have noticed that song in is Live After Death, which was recorded soon during their tour supporting Powerslave. My personal favorite song off the record is 2 Minutes 2 Midnight. This song was one of the MaidEn songs that helped define the basic heavy metal sound for the 80s. Flash the Blade is a song than I’m not much of a fan of. Mainly because it’s an overall repetitive song. I noticed that AvEnged SevEnfold played a cover of this song in their album Diamonds in the Rough. Those are the songs that stick out to me the most. I would give this album a 15/20.

A heavy influence on the heaviest bands

I've really grown to despise Iron Maiden based on the amount of attEntion they get in the metal scEne. They have become the metal mainstream, and it is considered posing to not like them. Well, I don't give a fuck. I won't like any band unless I have a 100% sure, original, good reason for liking them.

Well, I guess this is Enough. As usual, Bruce Dickinson's vocals are proof of the popular trEnd of tEnors in "good" heavy metal (which leaves me, a baritone, fucked before I evEn begin my journey...thank you VERY much!), and this is before their decision of guitar-overkill.

But as it is, Powerslave is powerful...if you pardon my pun. It is as pounding as any album by Priest, and the riffage on "Flash of the Blade" and "Two Minutes to Midnight" is top-notch. We can see their influEnce on such great bands from the thrash (Metallica) and metalcore scEnes (AvEnged SevEnfold). Should I be glad that this is a band that inspired my favorite bands to greatness or amazed that you, who say you're "above" "poser", "emo" music, like a band that is covered by artists whom you consider to be emo bands (Glamour of the Kill, Trivium, Sign, AvEnged SevEnfold, Bullet for My ValEntine...and, among the Slayer fans, evEn Metallica)?

In history, this will probably won't hold up to your favorite (Number of the Beast), but Powerslave is still a heavy influEnce on the heaviest bands of the metal scEne. The mere fact that this band has lasted for so long is a testamEnt to their greatness. However, as with Motorhead, their fear of the unknown and of trying new things means that I could buy two or three of their albums and not be missing anything.

AlonewithL - 02 四月 2011: 10/20 for Powerslave?????
This album is a myth. He is considered by the metal scene as one of the jewels of the band. Your article is absolutely biased and offensive. Iron Maiden inspired a majority of heavy metal groups after the 80s. And Iron Maiden is not popular for a penny.
What do you smoke?
