    Iron Maiden or British Steel?

    Great album. But better than Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Van Halen debuts? I don't think so.

    Bolded bands are hard rock, not heavy metal.

    Is Iron Maiden the biggest metal band in the world right now?

    Judas Priest can't be counted as a NWOBHM band, because they were the 70's band. Saxon is definitely the second most notable NWOBHM band after Maiden and they never really caught on in America, while they were a big deal in their homeland and Europe in general. Although they are not a part of...

    Even if AJFA is somewhat a catchy album, it cannot be nowhere near as catchy and accessible as Piece of Mind.

    I agree. There's no way that Maiden is a niche band. For example, Opeth is a good example of niche band when it comes to the metal world, because only progheads and metalheads know that band.

    Is Iron Maiden the biggest metal band in the world right now?

    What you think: do famous Metallica songs from the 80's appeal more to non-metal listeners than famous 80's Maiden tunes? For example, is "One" more appealing than "The Trooper"?

    Some metalcore bands are there, e.g. As I Lay Dying.

    MetalArchives don't consider either of them to be metal.

    Is Iron Maiden the biggest metal band in the world right now?

    Take a look at Deep Purple(very influential band on Maiden). Their historic success in USA compared to the rest of the world is quite similar to Iron Maiden's success. Deep Purple had a mass popularity in Europe(they are one of the biggest classic rock bands in Europe), but they were far from...
