Paparazzi - Cold In A Warm Climate
surrender
By: pheasantstalker
Date: 16 Aug 2009
Rating:

Absolutely Brilliant - how come I have never heard this band before? They are equally as good if not better than their well known contemporaries so how could they have passed under the radar? - They should be making records now let alone be so shrouded in mystery - does anyone know anything about this band -no-one can be this good and have no-one know anything at all about them. If you have any info please contact me I would love to know.


Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time
Wasted Years
By: fatback
Date: 6 Jul 2009

"Wasted Years" was the fourteenth single released by Iron Maiden and the first from their Somewhere in Time album. Released in 1986, it was the first single to be written by guitarist Adrian Smith alone. It is a song about reflecting on the past. It's the only song on Somewhere In Time that features no synthesizers.

Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time
Stranger In A Strange Land
By: fatback
Date: 6 Jul 2009

This song was written by Adrian Smith and maybe reminiscent of Robert Heinlein's novel of the same name, it is actually unrelated. ˜Stranger In A Strange Land" is about a man trapped in the arctic and whose frozen body was eventually discovered years later. It is apparently based on a real expedition, and Smith was inspired to write the song after talking to one of the survivors (who was an Iron Maiden fan).

Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
The Clairvoyant
By: fatback
Date: 1 Jul 2009

"The Clairvoyant" relates the reflections of the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son on his life and powers. He is now a fully-fledged seer and has learned to control his visions. However, these become rapidly overwhelming and he eventually confuses what he really sees with what he sees with his mind's eye. Death is now for him the only way out. Did his powers kill him or did he commit suicide?

Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
The Evil That Men Do
By: fatback
Date: 1 Jul 2009

The title of the song is taken from Marcus Antonius's speech while addressing the crowd of Romans after Caesar's murder (Act 3, scene 2, "The Forum") in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar: "The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones." Bruce Dickinson often repeats this before playing the song, but in reverse. Its topic is similar to the song "Infinite Dreams" from this album in that it also seems to relate to whatever is beyond death. It could be some sort of flashback to the conception of the Seventh Son of the Seventh Son. The character telling this story is apparently the first Seventh Son, but it is not clear with whose daughter he "slept in the dust". Likewise, the "slaughter of innocence" may refer to the loss of the virginity. But whose?

Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
Can I Play With Madness
By: fatback
Date: 1 Jul 2009

The story continues on with the father of the Seventh Son, who is also a Seventh Son, who tries to learn the future from an old prophet with a crystal ball. The prophet looks at his crystal ball, but the young man sees nothing there ("... there's no vision there at all!"). The prophet looks at the young man and laughs, because the young man is "too blind to see" the vision. But more importantly, he's too blind to see what's really going on - in that he's being cheated and there really is no vision there. Maybe he also tries to seek help from the prophet in order to come to terms with his visions and nightmares. He apparently thinks that he’s becoming mad, although he does not believe what the prophet says and turns violent.

Iron Maiden - Powerslave
2 Minutes To Midnight
By: fatback
Date: 1 Jul 2009

The title of the song refers to the Doomsday Clock, one of the most chilling and best known symbols of the nuclear age, representing how close humanity is to the brink of nuclear holocaust (midnight). The clock reached 2 minutes to midnight in September 1953, after the Soviets successfully detonated an awesomely powerful thermonuclear device. Today the clock stands at 7 minutes to midnight after little progress was made on global nuclear disarmament. In 2002, the United States rejected a series of arms control treaties and announced it will withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty.

This song was featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on a radio station, VRock, which included such other artists as Megadeth and Judas Priest.

Steve Harris does not have the composer credit on this song - Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson both share it. This is one of the few Iron Maiden songs where Harris' name is not given on the composer credit.

Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind
The Trooper
By: fatback
Date: 1 Jul 2009

This song is based on the Crimean War, which was fought by the Russians and the Ottoman Empire (with England, France, and Sardinia). There are several mentions of the Russians such as, "The mighty roar of the Russian guns" and "When a Russian gets me in his sights."

The opening with the galloping horses is based on The Charge Of The Light Brigade" by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Iron Maiden released a live version as a single that was recorded at Iceland's Reykjavik Egishorllin Stadium in June, 2005. The single was released to promote their double CD/DVD album Death On The Road, and hit #5 in the UK.
