    Joy Division+New Order

    I'm really not sure how well Joy Division is liked on this forum so I made this so I could find out :p Closer is one of my favorite albums ever and I love it for the dark brooding atmosphere and cyclic basslines and riffs. Just chock full of raw emotion and texture. JD's music isn't terribly...

    Recording/Mixing for Dummies?

    Hey all I'm relatively new to recording and mixing and it'd be awesome if someone could give me some basic 101 guidelines to producing and mixing one's own music. I'm working on a cello cover of the Maiden song 2 A.M (Keyboard intro, Cello, Electric Cello) and the result is pretty...

    Atrocious songs from good bands

    These are songs that are just so bad they're the last thing you'd expect from a classic or quality band and you just can't wrap your head around the fact they sat in the studio, talked it over, and thought "This is a GOOD idea!" Feel free to contribute to the wall of shame. Rock 'N Roll...

    Recycled Songs?

    Sometimes you can't help but feel certain Maiden songs are just rehashes of classics. The one that bothers me the most is The Duellists which sounds EXACTLY like Where Eagles Dare, and even Bruce's vocals are uncannily....well, the same.

    Mic recommendations?

    I've been a cellist for 6 years but mainly been exclusive to concert performances and jamming with friends. Lately I've been wanting to record my covers and own compositions but that's pretty much gone to the toilet as I don't have any quality recording equipment. I've used both acoustic and...

    Create Your Own Setlist For Any Band You Like

    Basically the same as "Create Your Own Maiden Setlist", but with any band you like. This is probably a duplicate but we all know search buttons are unreliable. Judas Priest 1. Painkiller 2. The Sentinel 3. Delivering the Goods 4. All Guns Blazing 5. You've Got Another Thing Coming 6. Victim...

    The Problem with the X-Factor?

    I've never understood why this album is considered among Maiden's worst. I can't even fathom it. For some albums like Virtual XI (bad production, monotonous vocals, TAATG) I can understand. But when I listen to the X-Factor, I hear nothing but absolute brilliance from start to finish and there's...

    Anyone here a musician?

    I'm a cellist and composer, which may leave me as the odd one out here since I'm assuming most of the members here are guitarists/bassists (I'm somewhat competent at the double bass but given that I don't own one I've never been able to really put forth my best into learning the instrument)...

    Greatest Maiden Epic

    I didn't include anything from No Prayer or Killers, because they don't have a classic Steve Harris epic. I haven't listened to Final Frontier so there's no option for in the poll yet. I love all of these songs, but Sign of the Cross takes the cake for me.

    Favorite Maiden Lyrics

    With Iron Maiden being my favorite band, several lyrics resonate deeply with me and I find extremely thought provoking. I personally find Maiden's lyricism to either be a hit or miss, with either the lyrics being amazingly profound (Revelations Hallowed be thy Name, The Educated Fool) or just...
