The riff leading into the solo and the solo itself are two of the greatest things Iced Earth has ever done - and they're never going to happen again because Jon Schaffer ran out of good ideas years ago.
Greely is more traditional power metal. that doesn't make him better or worse, by itself. Barlow has a much broader range and a more varied delivery, which makes him a superior vocalist. all Greely can do is screetch. Barlow can sing, growl, and hit those high notes (with better clarity i might add). he's just better.
I’ve been a big Maiden fan for many and many years and I FINNALLY started listening to these guys a couple months ago. Why I never picked up this disc before is beyond me. It’s so fast and tight! Insert college cheerleader pun here…
Just popping in to show some love for one of the pinnacles of the band's discog. This one always keeps me coming back to the well. Though I must admit, I really cannot stand how the Barlow versions lose Greely's killer scream after Schaffer's spoken bridge.
