  • Overall, I think this song is pretty enjoyable, it may not be as well developed as other Maiden songs, but it’s certainly worth listening to now and then

      No Prayer For The Dying is the title track of a record put out by Iron Maiden. The song starts off right away with a melodic guitar lead which I swear I’ve heard before in another Maiden song but I can’t remember exactly where it came from, it reminds me strongly of a song off of Fear Of The Dark to be honest.

      Moving on, Dickinson comes in with his vocals and the song continues on in this very melodic fashion and you should be able


      to tell right away that the song will certainly be building up because Maiden sets the perfect atmosphere to do this.

      After the first verse, the intro lead comes back in to help the song transition into the second verse of the track.

      I suppose you could say this lead is actually the chorus of the track, although there are no vocals throughout this section, after each verse this lead comes in and this is what the song apparently build up for with the verse.

      A ...


      • bit before two and a half minutes into the song is where the track really builds up and it starts to sound more like traditional metal from Iron Maiden with the guitars playing a pretty simple as Harris plays a nice bass fill under them and you should be able to tell that the guitar solos will soon be coming and they certainly do.

        The solos are all pretty much like typical Maiden, they’re quick solos which fit nicely with the song and impress me once

        again.

        My only concern right now is how Maiden plays to transition back from this heavier section back into the melodic feel that they had, if they choose to go in this direction.

        However, Maiden chooses to go with a vocal section which matches the heaviness of the music before going back into the melodic feel so this transition works pretty well.

        Overall, I think this song is pretty enjoyable, it may not be as well developed as other Maiden songs, but it’s certainly worth listening to now and then.
