    Should Maiden include an instrumental song in their next album?

    First rock and first metal album you heard

    A friend of mine's brother had Guns 'N' Roses' Use Your Illusion II lying around (he stole it from some other guy) so we'd play it over and over and start acting like idiots LOL.

    Creepy Maiden lyrics

    Some Maiden lyrics are particularly intense. The line "a glimpse of the future/a cannibal state" from Man On The Edge has always brought all sorts of Orwellian, Terminator-like scenarios of technologic decay and mind control and whatnot to my mind. Are there any lyrics that creep you out?

    Best line in TFF

    To me, the most beautiful line in the whole album is "Empty flesh and hollow bones / make pacts of love / but die alone". Cryptic, poetic and emotional. What is your favorite line?
