I received an interesting email that I wanted to share with you (with the permission of the author). Here it goes: i think that it could be noted that the single The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg from maiden's latest album is similar in style to the song powerslave from the powerslave album and placed at a similar position in the album. if you notice, the entire gist of the musical quality of the song bears the same dark sound and resemblance to the one used in powerslave. as a musician, this is best described by a minor key. also, the view that a matter of life and death is prog metal fits this song slightly, as it emulates the style of powerslave, with a fresh sound while still maintaining the classic maiden elements. my last comparison is between the lyrics. both speak of possession by some higher power causing missery. if b.breeg had anything to do with the character of powerslave, the lyrics almost fit that it would be at an earlier stage of his life. So... would anybody say that Ben Breeg is a powerslave?
