Iron Maiden: Powerslave

Sound — 10
The first impression I got from this band was wow. These guys really knew how to play metal. This was the first CD I ever got. Before Maiden I didn't listen to music. I'm glad my friend showed me this CD. This is an example of the British wave of heavy metal. Another band that go under this 'category' is Judas Priest. Good guitar solos and catchy tunes. The bass is awesome. Drums are pretty much your standard metal beats. About 45 minutes, 8 tracks and even a 13 minute track!

It's metal music, so it's not gonna talk about a girlfirend or something like that. This cds songs about war, egypt, duels and stuff like that. Really cool lyrics. Bruce Dickisons vocals are powerful and strong. A great metal singer.

Overall Impression — 10
A great CD to listen to when you need some good ole' metal. This is a good CD for people getting into metal. It got me into rock music. All tunes on this cd are awesome. I love everything about. The bad thing is that I actually did loose this CD. I'm going to get another one.
