Iron Maiden

Profile:
Founded in Leyton in London's East End in 1975, Iron Maiden released their first album in 1980 as a five-piece with Paul Di'Anno on vocals. Bruce Dickinson would replace him in 1981. With several line-up changes Steve Harris would remain the only original member never to have had a hiatus.

When Bruce Dickinson quit in 1994 and was replaced by Wolfsbane's Blaze Bayley, the band lost a lot of their fanbase. They recorded two albums with Blaze before Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith (2) returned to the fold for 2000's "Brave New World", and 2003's "Dance of Death", making them a six-piece. As of 1999 the line-up hasn't changed

Maiden have for me,been at the forefront of NWOBHM.I'd just come out of the punk scene ('79) & was looking as a lot were in the early 'thatcher' days for a new direction.IM did it for me,not quite as raw as a lot of punk bands,but it was there.How they've lasted is really down to two giants of metal,Steve (arry) Harris & Bruce Dickinson.(sorry Blaze).Hope they continue,all down to health,i guess.up the irons!👊👍

With or without singer Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden have continued their heavy metal assault for the past twenty years -- brave soldiers for the Euro-Metal they fashioned from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Rhythmic velocity, intense, wailing dual lead guitars, and vocals that soared in concert with the epic imagery of the lyrics made them the lords of Metal throughout the '80s. Weathering the '90s with several lineup changes, Maiden have come full circle (well, sort of) with the 1999 return of Dickinson.
...Looks as if their fierce signature sound will charge into the new millennium.

I was introduced to heavy metal with "Somewhere in time", back in '86. Unfortunately, slightly too young for my parents to allow me to see them in Lisbon then. But did it in '88, when they came back with "Seventh son..." tour. Seen all their shows in Portugal with Bruce Dickinson (except one). Sorry Blaze: hated your albums.

I spent countless amazing hours followed by Iron Maiden's music. I laughed, cried, got drunk. I will always appreciate them and have a special relation to them
