Very crappy metal band. Most of their songs follow a cookie-cutter power-ballad: Each song starts mid-tempo or slow, then after a few very repetive verses there is a guitar solo which starts at a slow tempo then suddenly gets fast in the middle, at which point the solo becomes totally unrelated to the song (listeners are supposed to think its good though). Iron maiden songs often repeat the same chorus four or five times in the same song. Be warned that Iron Maiden fans might actually get violent if you point out to them that iron maiden songs generally exemplify poor musicianship.
"Stranger in a strange land" is a cooky cutter power-balad with a crappy guitar solo and an over-repeated chorus. When is Iron Maiden going to learn to write decent songs?
