Hallowed Be Thy Name always will be the ultimate winner.
The final top 10 is worthy - the surprises (at least for me) are ''Infinite Dreams'' and SSOASS, but the omission of reunion era songs and ''The Trooper'', FOTD, TNOTB is shocking...
The nice surprise is the presence of TETMD in the top...
Interesting interview. Some curious facts:
- the three different gongs during the LOTB tour (black, stained glass art and red): the black one was used during SIT tour and the red one was used during TEH tour.
- Maiden had 5 finished songs before they go to Compass Point studio for the POM album...
With which drum kit Nicko appears on all official music videos ->
*without the videos for live singles (because they are all with the drum kit from the specific tour)!
FOI - drum kit from WPT
The Trooper - drum kit from WPT
2MTM - drum kit from WST
Aces High - drum kit from WST
It's impossible to choose between those two, but I'll vote for Rime Of The Ancient Mariner.
For me the definition of epic is ROTAM - perfect masterpiece!
Both songs are one of the best in the genre, but HBTN is probably the best heavy metal song of all time... with ROTAM right behind it.
