Nah, if he wrote it, it would like something more like this:Lyrics for AtG are written by Joakim Broden.
And also these would be better lyrics.Nah, if he wrote it, it would like something more like this:
In the early dawn
See them marching on
Side by side, as brothers
Soldiers of Macedonia
At the gates of India
Army of Alexander
We remember, we remember, we remember
We remember, Alexander
Hear his story
Alexander, we remember
Sing of his story!!!
On your side with this. Apart from the first 1- 2 minutes, I find it mostly boring. I can understand why it hasn't been played live, and don't understand people still asking/hoping for it to be on the setlist someday.I don’t rate Alexander the Great that highly. In honesty I find it to be a weak ‘epic’
I think Iron Maiden is a better album than Powerslave, there's no weak tracks and I can listen to it all the way through.
On Powerslave, the two weakest songs are Losfer Words and Back in the Village.
I very rarely listen to Powerslave. It just isn’t that interesting for me. I agree that Back in the Village is an underrated gem through. I especially love the little key change towards the end. However, the album is just a wall of sound for me. There is very little light and shade on the album.Powerslave isn't my favourite either and while I like most of the stuff on it, I really don't listen to it thoroughly that often. However, for me, Back in the Village is actually one of the hidden gems there! The chorus is nothing spectacular, but other than that, I love the fierce and intense vibe of it! Great delivery by Bruce and that riff is great.
