post #20251 of 20261
I guess that explains why I was wondering. The only band out of that list that I listen to, or have even heard, is Carcass. I guess I can see it in Heartwork, but not so much in anything prior to that (is the influence there in Necrotisicm?). I need to listen to more Maiden I suppose, then I'll be able to search for their influence in more of the bands I like. Thanks bro.

I agree Heartwork would be the Maiden influenced album. Heck many would say that any melodic guitar is Maiden when Iron Maiden just got it together and was just recycling Blackmore!

Many of the Maiden albums I found used on cassette in the late 1990s and would play them in my car just to listen to something new? I have heard much of their stuff but don't hear the magic like some do. Carcass may be the bandon that list that shows the least Maiden influence? I ended up buying every remastered Carcass two disk special edition set when they came out in 2005? The Necroticism album was something I got into way after the time it came out. It may even be a rebellion of NWOBHM but because those times were saturated with the genre their music still can't totally escape the sound. Maybe Carcass sounds more like NWOBHM on the last Swansong album? Though that album is classified as melodic death metal.

Maybe someone who knows more about Carcass can chime in and enlighten us. The simple way I look at it is NWOBHM was a change from classic rock/metal which was and is Deep Purple, Sabbath, and Carcass are the originators of the gore grind sub genre of extreme metal in most of their output.

the first three Einherjer albums are truly amazing ,and most of their later material is great as well though I wish Ragnar Vikse had stayed on as their vocalist, i'm also a fan of his current band Spirits of the Dead.

I will go into the details of other tracks soon, all I can say is this album kicks some major ass. They almost went through all their eras, the tracks are quite varied. But the last one, AH the last one, I was almost in tears. Time to go back to my cave for the umpteenth listening.

Digiorgio is the man for sure-so prolific.i need to check out that cd.

Haven't listen through all of it, but I can already say that this is album is a winner (at least in my books).

just listened to the new maiden and i was coming on to say that it was average but...................................

started replaying it and its growing on me for sure so time will tell.

on first listen i was a bit disappointed in the quality of the guitar solos in comparison to their early works.

The merger of Cradle of Filth and Maiden.

Ok that was not fair.

Here is a better example of Iron Maiden influence in extreme metal. One I just randomly choose out of hundreds.

Here it is in the vocals?

That has been my favorite Maiden cover for the longest time.

 

I also love Disarmonia Mundi's cover of "The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner" and even want to record my own version influenced by that cover someday (to be featured in an animated television series I am slowly conceptualizing), with female vocals, more aggressive guitars, electronics, and an orchestra! :bigsmile_face:

 

Love the lyrics in this part:

 

"I've got to keep running the course. I've got to keep running and win at all costs. I've go to keep going, be strong. Must be so determined and push myself on."

@Trogdor

 

Do you have any lists of metal albums with the best production? I wanted to see if I had any.
