Iron "May"-den #13

Well folks, there's only 2 days left in this month, and it looks like I won't be getting as deep into Maiden's discography as I intended. But fear not, as I will do more next May (barring an apocalypse in December 2012). Today and tomorrow I plan on posting videos from 1986's Somewhere In Time lp (which has one of the most detailed album covers...check it out!)

Today's song is "Wasted Years," a track written by rhythm guitarist Adrian Smith, who also sings lead vocals on the chorus. It's an example of a poppier '80s hard rock/metal sound, making it one of my favorites. The video rocks too, as it features clips of the band's older videos. It's funny they were already being nostalgic for their past only 6 years after their first album dropped!

  1. I've got this album on vinyl. Such a badass album, especially on the new system (I'll stop raving about the system one day...but not today).

    Talk about a detailed album cover. Its always been one of my favs. I was happy to find it on vinyl.

    This is one of their more "technical" albums. I dig it.
