Comments on: Iron Maiden http://hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Mark http://hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/#comment-1403 Fri, 14 Sep 2007 22:33:13 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/2007/09/iron-maiden/#comment-1403 Frankly, I’m still resistant to Metallica. Queensryche is far better in my opinion.

But my main beef with Metallica is my perception that they get the credit that Iron Maiden should have had.

Earlier this year they released an album consisting of nothing but covers of 70s rock tunes. It is better than you might think.

Some of the songs make me think: this is what Dokken should have been.

I had Tesla’s first album when it first came out (late 80’s?) on tape but haven’t heard it in years. Did they stick with it through the 90’s?

It’s almost embarrassing to admit this, but I did not “get” Metallica at first. I had Kill Em All in high school and didn’t like it. It wasn’t until Master of Puppets that I gained the proper appreciation of Metallica.

For more of pop metal or hard rock sound, I still play a lot of Tesla.

I hate to say, but Guns-n-Roses “Apetite for Destruction” has to be considered one of the greatest single American metal albums ever. The short lifespan of the band makes it diffidult to mention them with Metallica, but for an album or two, they were as metal as metal gets.

If you go more toward the prog rock side of metal, I think a few other bands deserve mention, particularly Dream Theater and maybe Savatage (both the early metal version of Savatage and the later metal show tunes version).

Pop medal would be Aerosmith, I suppose.
