Does anyone else absolutely love Lord of the Flies?
I just think the studio version is one of the most badass, heavy and awesome songs they’ve done. It was the first Maiden song I learnt on bass back in 2004 and I just love this song.
It’s my favourite Blaze vocal performance (in Maiden) as to my ears he just sounds so relentlessly powerful. Plus I really like the lyrics. The riffs are more simplistic than 80’s Maiden but again, I very much enjoy them, and Janick solo is one of his best.
I will also give appreciation to the Bruce version and it sounds great when he goes up an octave in the last chorus but I have always vastly preferred Blaze on this tune, along with Futureal and Man on the Edge. (Bruce soars on the Clansman and sign of the cross).
Plus I love the music video-
