Its time to kick off the S'March of Metal with one of the leaders of the NWOBHM, Iron Maiden. I prefer the Bruce Dickinson era over the orignal Maiden lineup with Paul Di'Anno on vocals. The early tunes are good, just not a fan of Di'Anno's voice. I think Maiden would have never broken thru without Dickinson taking over. The heart of the band has always been bass player Steve Harris who founded the band way back in 1975. What better way to start the S'March of Metal...Iron Maiden, Phantom of the Opera!
