From the moment we bought and heard Maiden's 1990 album "No Prayer For The Dying", it was like our world changed. Not only did we discover that Maiden had the coolest covers in the business, but the music simply stunned us. Maiden was like a dream come true, caught on tape.
Personally I had never been extremely interested in any form of music until I heard Maiden. I liked the first couple of albums from A-Ha, commodore 64 music, some few pop songs from the 80's and had a deep love for the music from Star Wars. Especially Imperial March (the Darth Vader theme). For other people it might sound weird, but I found Maiden to be a mix of all those. Only much heavier and cooler.
No Prayer For The Dying, the song, was the main song to catch my attention. It was a true "HOLY SHIT!" moment. And it's still one of my favorites. It's slow, heavy and beautiful. I don't doubt for one second that my life would have been COMPLETELY different if I hadn't heard this song.
Although "No Prayer For The Dying", the album, isn't a favorite among most fans, it has a special place in our hearts. It was our introduction to the wonderful world of heavy metal.
