    I am doubting between a 10 and a 9. I tend to do 10 but I still have a bit of criticism.

    This song is my favourite song of NOTB. I do not list it in my own top 10 of Maiden songs because I find it -apart from the vocals- worse than most live versions. It's kinda slow, and the intro seems unnaturally faster. I am not much over the moon with Adrian's leadwork on NOTB and his delivery on Hallowed I find no exception. Nonetheless this song features Bruce's best singing (this is why I'm doubting about the grade), some great guitar harmonies, with a strong rhythm underneath.

    I think I'll do a nine, but I rather give a 9,4 or something.

    Unfortunately, that's not possible, but with you, I never doubt that your reasoning works for you.  :ninja:

    10.  Out of the most emotional songs Maiden has ever done, and that's largely due to Bruce's performance.  Love the way the guitars escalate.

    I really don't see how a different rate than 10 could be possible, this song rocks every single time I'm listening to it.

    Excellent post there!! Thy progressively conclusion to the point (10/10) is a state of art, while the epilogue, well a classic ol'good SMX  :ok:

    As noted above, I couldn't say it better than SMX, for the moment  :devil2:. I might add an extensive commentary when I find the time, but as for now; 10/10

    The commentary is at least as important as the grade. You could also do both at the same time, and take more time for it.  :)

    Unknown One I see the ghost of navigators.

    10/10 without question. Possibly the greatest song in the entire metal genre. Why it is so great has already been written in reams before me though.

    My second favorite Maiden song, truly a classic. If someone ask me "What is the best Heavy Metal song ?" it will be my second choice behind my all-time favorite RotAM.

    10 out of 10... Arguably Maiden's finest effort, this song transports the listener into the world of the story being told. The condemned man's thoughts become the listener's, and the intensity of the emotions aroused are those of a man struggling with his belief system when faced with ceasing to be. By the time the tune comes to the bridge before the solos, I'm usually hovering three inches off the ground, having lost my mind in the scorching, headbanging ecstasy that the band has created in this masterpiece. Superlatives fail me...

    No shit it's a ten.
    Easily Maiden's best song.

    Best song ever in music. Epitome of heavy metal. 10/10.

    P.S. Beast Over Hammersmith version is the best.

    I am not on the "Greatest Metal song" bandwagon with this one but it is still a great tune. Bruce really stands out on this one. 8/10

    I'm giving this song 10, but sorry guys, it's not my favorite song from NOTB (that award goes to Children of the Damned). :eek:

    Giving Hallowed a very deserved 10/10, perfect in every way, first class closer, epic.

    Easy 10, one of their best songs ever (or anyone else for that matter)

    Best song ever. Easily, 10.

    Chartwell Trooper

    I AM on the greatest metal song ever bandwagon. Yet, paradoxically, it might not even be my fav Maiden song. Once this paradox resolves itself, I'll let you know. But a perfect song, in every sense of the word.

    Tron Trooper

      yhep 10/10  this paradox is spreading. while its probably THE metal song and symbolic... maiden have done better  :lol:
