Just to clarify that the "eagle" cry is actually a red-tailed hawk's cry. Eagles sound far chirpier than their impressive appearance would suggest.
Thanks for the clarification, though this song still fails to take flight, regardless of which bird species embodies it... :D

Difficult call, and a bit of random one at that, but I've probably had more enjoyment of Sabaton overall that I have of this one single Maiden song.

Part of that is that I'm not keen on artistic portrayals of the First World War, though, and prefer a song with more flow to it. The stop-start thing doesn't do much for me.

I love Sabaton, but if you told me I could have either the entire Sabaton discography or this one song, I'd pick Paschendale without a second thought. It's the type of music that Sabaton has wet dreams about making.
I used to love Paschendale. But I found that somehow over the years I stopped revisiting it.

Same, Paschendale has been dropping down in my rankings too. It's the same with the Dance of Death title track, actually. There's no doubt I'd take 9 Sabaton albums over one Maiden song.

Indeed. Sabaton has grown into one of the premier live metal bands. Massively entertaining and they bring in big crowds. Not too far in quality from Maiden's live performances and their stage sets are on par. Wouldn't even take Paschendale over Sabatons handful of best songs.
