About Iron Maiden
In the early days of heavy metal, bands such as Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple earned the designation because of their music’s loud distortive quality, but when mirrored against its modern day counterpart, there was nothing especially dark or ominous about it.
Enter Iron Maiden who in 1975 bridged the gap between the two generations by abandoning much of heavy metal’s blues inspired luster in favor of the raw abrasiveness of punk and structured complexity of classical music.
Iron Maiden burned through lead vocalist Paul Di’Anno on route to Bruce Dickinson (Yes, the Bruce Dickinson), whose banshee like falsetto would come to define their band and heavy metal for several decades to come.
Among the British ensemble’s most enduring works is the rebellious “Run to the Hills”, which famously chronicles the expulsion of the Native Americans by the United States Government.
