August 9, 2013, 7 years ago
The latest instalment of Mars Attacks Classic Albums Column focuses on IRON MAIDEN's Powerslave. As has become customary for the albums column, the post is split into written comments and audio comments that have been submitted regarding the album. Some of the written comments come from members of MEGADETH, IN THIS MOMENT, DEATH ANGEL, WHITE WIZZARD, GORGOROTH, GYPSYHAWK, among others. Check out a few of the comments below:
David Ellefson (Megadeth) - "Number of the Beast was the last Maiden album I bought as for me it was the essence of the 'best of the best' of Maiden. However, some albums get better to me over time and one of those is Powerslave. It had a great album cover and the title track is just a classic. Plus, 'Aces High' and 'Two Minutes To Midnight' are like metal standards in every rock bar around the planet. Up The Irons for Maiden on this one!"
Chris Howorth (In This Moment) - "Fucking love this album, the artwork is epic (used to get stoned and try finding all the eddies or little creatures hiding throughout the artwork). I also took this album into my 8th grade history class taking advantage of the subject matter as an excuse to play 'Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner' during class. My favorite songs are 'Aces High', 'Powerslave', and of course 'Two Minutes To Midnight'. This is easily my all-time favorite album from Iron Maiden!"
The podcast portion of the column contains comments from Jon Schaffer (ICED EARTH), Gene Hoglan (ex-STRAPPING YOUNG LAD), Brian Tichy (S.U.N., ex-WHITESNAKE), Glen Drover (ex-MEGADETH), author Martin Popoff, Mark Strigl, and several others.
