Hey there! Can someone help me?

I'm listening to their debut album right now. The song "Strange World" has different vocals compared to what I was listening in youtube. They are more raw and heavy in the album, and clean in youtube. Also, there's no "Sanctuary" ... is this the original album, or what remaster/release is it??

EDIT: Strange world has also a weird intro...


What raw vocals on Strange world? That's a ballad And what's so weird about the intro?

When the album was originally released, "Sanctuary" only appeared on the US version, as the song wasn't released as a single there. (but it was released in the UK, hence the omission of the song in that territory's version of the album). When the album was reissued in the 90's though, the song was added to the album for all territories.

Hm... but the song "Strange World" was changed when the album was reissued? 'Cause it is a bit raw and it's intro is different too in my album.

Yeah, but I've heard two versions of it, one with the vocals clean and another a bit more heavy. And the intro is different now.

Maybe you've heard The Soundhouse Tapes version? "Strange World" was recorded but not included on the EP. It was later released on the Best of the Beast compilation.

That's right!! I was listening the demo version all the time, and the demo version is ten millions time better

I'm really hating that I'm going to be missing Iron Maiden's show in Atlanta this weekend. Grrr. I'm feeling that nauseousness that comes along when I can't make a show I really want to attend.

Mainly, family members are coming down to visit me this weekend making it impossible for me to leave to make the trip to Atlanta to see Iron Maiden.

I saw Iron Maiden in Toronto on their Final Frontier tour back in 2010. Setlist was a bit weak but it was a good show. Debating on whether or not to see them when they come around.

And yeah tickets were expensive. I remember it was about $40 for lawn "seats".

Ok, set list on this tour was awesome! Mostly pre-Seventh Son songs, plus a few newer ones that fit really well and give it a nice flow. I was super happy

I also had $40 lawn seating and I just want to say it was better than actual "seats" I had last time. Saw them several years ago outside of Seattle and the seats were great but once the show starts you're just standing in front of your seat. On the lawn (nearly as close) you can rock out barefoot on the grass and are not confined to one small square of concrete to stand on. One of the best times I've had at a show. Until I can afford the super expensive tickets, lawn it is for me!

I saw them few days ago at the ottawa's bluesfest with Alice cooper ! T'was fucking insane ! I mean their set is incredible, and for those who might have heard already, Yes it is true they don't play Hallowed Be Thy Name. But here's the set I got (not in the right order but anyways)

-Moonchild
-Number Of The Beast
-Aces High
-The Evil That Men Do
-Wasted Years
-Running Free
-Iron Maiden
-Phantom Of The Opera
-2 minutes to midnight
-Fear Of The Dark
-Afraid To Shoot Strangers
-Can I Play with madness
-The Evil That Men Do
-Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
-The Trooper
-Run To The Hills

Pretty good if you ask me!

Im gonna leave this here:

bruce seems like a really cool person.

my favorite song is: blood brothers
favorite album: the final frontier

to be honest, iron maiden is probably greatest metal band in the world,and i don't think you can argue with that.

Depends on how you define great. Most popular/successful ? Maybe. But I can name many bands I prefer over Iron Maiden. Maiden are a good stepping stone band to get you into Metal but to be honest I gave up on them ages ago.

Loll.. I see what you mean. But honestly I can't give up on them, you can get tired of some songs I guess.. but Maiden's awesome. No matter how many times you've heard their names of songs, its still one of the greatest metal bands. What they achieved, what they do... and how they do it is incredible. With not so much Media help...

Just got my ticket for the Maiden England tour next summer. I'll see them live for the sixth time in eight years. The classic boring stuff can suck my ass. "The Trooper"? Like I care. But there will probably be some awesome stuff that I haven't experienced live before. Although I hate that they're just doing two thirds of the original setlist along with other songs. So far they've skipped "Killers" and "Still Life" from the original! You are tearing me apart, Iron Maiden!!!

Wooow this has been a killer gig no doubt I remember their awsome set list back in 2005 on Early Days tour when they played songs from first four albums.. But this set list is a killer.. Love it..

Couldn't have said it any better myself. Yupp, Maiden truly is awesome! Guess I'm one of those weirdos who enjoy their new post-reunion stuff much as or even more than their 80's classics.

Did anyone hear Steve Harris' new solo album "British Lion" yet? I personally didn't like it, I'm just curious.

I've only heard the first single (and watched the horrendous vid), but from just that, I'm not really that enthused about checkin' it out....sounded flat, and if that was a single, you'd assume Steve thought it was strong, or at least had a chorus that could appeal to potential fans or something alone those lines, but it just didn't for me

I know, I saw in a few videos Bruce playing the song with a kazoo just as a joke. It would be great to see it played live for real.

Yeah, it's funny how they as songwriters have arguably improved with the last ten years, delivering more variety, more ambitious epic tracks, Bruce doing as good as ever vocally and Gers being an underrated as heck member of the band (he's written masterpieces on all their last albums). I just hope a lot of fans might wake up and see the newest incarnation of the band for what it is, instead of living in the past with a religious attachement while clunching on to "Powerslave" as if their lives depended on it. Their new stuff is sadly very underrated, even among hardcore MaIden fans.

Agreed, I'm sure we'll have ourselves an amazing blast next time they roll into town!

Differing opinions..... I'm a huge fan of the first 7 but the new ones, while good albums, are just lacking power and its very common for songs to go on too long. Bruce's vocals also dont sound great to me... not bad ...just without the power of when he was young (no surprise). I would really like to see them lose the prog thing theyre trying to pull off and stick to what theyre good at - catchy and straight forward

This to an extent, but I do think some of the newer stuff is pretty good, almost as good as some of the stuff off the first seven (in my case, a far amount of Brave New World (actually love the hell outta that album) and one or two songs from the next three albums). Apart from those, yes, very little metal can beat some of the best material off their first seven.
