Your favorite 10 seconds of Maiden?


You've been visited by the devil and you can no longer listen to any Maiden songs.

Except a 10 second section of your choice.

What would you choose?


Damn this is hard I cant choose for myself.

Okay here we go

Black Bart

Ancient Mariner
Probably the ten seconds including "You're packing your bags, you're coming with me" with the beginning of the last solo in "22 Acacia Avenue".

Diesel 11

As you scream into the web of silence...
Okay so I consider the part in Rime just after Bruce screams RAAAAIIIINN until the end of the solo to be the greatest moment in Maiden history.

Can I speed this up so it lasts only ten seconds?

For that matter, can I speed up every Maiden song so that the entire discography is but 10 seconds long and that way I can always slow them down and hear the original?

Also also, the devil can go fuck himself.


Ancient Mariner
Probably 10 seconds in the best couple of minutes in music which are in Rime. Which 10....? Hmm. Perhaps the 10 second segment from or near the beginning of Adrian's solo on the Live After Death version.


What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine too
"Fertility Mother Goddess
Celebration, sow the seeds of the born
The fruit of her body laden
Through the corn doll
You will pray for them all"

This chorus is so eargasmic it's unbelievable.
2. Option
When Adrian's solo fades into the main riff on Caught Somewhere in Time


Ancient Mariner
Only 10 seconds? :oops: Must be something from Rime Of The Ancient Mariner.
Any part of the solo's between 9:16 and 10:08 although the following twin guitar part on loop is also heavenly.

They are way too many, but If I have to pick -> 3:19-3:29 or 4:03-4:13 from Judgement Of Heaven.
