Iron Maiden and killers are probably my favourite maiden albums.
Probably because I haven't really been in to any albums from NOTB and onward.
Ha ha ,yeah you know they use music as therapy for older people with dementia?Powerslave for me. In the early/mid 90s, when my interest in music started to get serious, a school friend had a walkman with him in our local swimming bath. He had tapes with Powerslave and „Keeper of the seven keys“ from Helloween. I knew the record covers of Maiden but had never heard a tone from them before. I was blown away from the music and that opened the door for my music taste till today.
Soon I owned these 2 records myself plus „A seventh son of a seventh son“ , „Walls of Jericho“ from Helloween and „Apetite for destruction“ from GnR and listened to it all summer long.
I don’t listen much metal anymore but untill this day, when I hear the first tones of Aces High, I have the smell of chlorine in my nose like it was almost 30 years ago.

That's cool since music brings back memories that people had forgotten etc.
Listened to Helloweens keeper of the 7 keys a lot ,and GNR appetite is a classic ,great album.
Not listening to traditional metal that much nowadays ,a lot of Stoner/death/black metal and the classics ,can't beat old Sabbath.
For some reason, I can't bring myself to hate this guy. The final years of his life were tragic, and there may very well be something to the accusations, I especially found one of his accusers in the Finding Neverland doc to be quite believable. Also listending to some of the messages he sent to young boys - yikes.
But I try to justify still listening because I only go after his early stuff, Off The Wall and Thriller are near perfect albums and I just can't let them go.
I don't want to watch another Woody Allen movie in my life, it's a bit odd how differently one can perceive such things. I am definitely conflicted about it, this is like the fourth time I edit this post
Tiamat is a great band.This therapy thing would definitely work on me, haha.
Never listened much of classic heavy metal stuff, but especially Maiden is honored by every type of metal and rock fan.
Speaking of black metal, as a teen I was pretty fascinated of all thoses weird things going on in Norway (only fascinated, never glorified that!) and read everything I could get. Musically I liked some of those bands but never digged too deep in that music, just the stories.
My happy place back in the days was gothic metal (before the term became an insult). Paradise Lost, Tiamat, My Dying Bride, Lake of Tears, just to name a few. PL and Tiamat are still ones of my all-time bands.
Nowadays I‘m more into punkrock than metal, although I will love this sound forever.
I'll be honest@shareq01 Lol I'm enjoying the sound. How'd you know I like this? At times it sounds to me a little bit like parts of The Strokes, or the Temper Trap! It's funny how they mention they don't like the 80's but some of their songs seem a bit 80's inspired with the synths lol.. Good sound, definitely!
