  • Purgatory strikes me as another track which demonstrates how well that Di’anno worked with Maiden’s early work as their songs were quite aggressive and he definitely had a tone which suited this, although I’m not saying that Dickinson doesn’t of course
  • Di’anno’s vocal melody throughout both the verse and chorus of this track are excellent and the riffs under these vocal sections are great as well, thankfully Iron Maiden doesn’t simply let the vocals carry this song and have the instruments do something generic during the vocal sections, the guitar riffs are interesting throughout the whole track
  • One thing about this track which surprised me, and sort of made me disappointed, was that there was no section in this track which was pretty much devoted to guitar solos, generally Maiden always has a section like this without exception

      Purgatory is a song by Iron Maiden which appears on their album Killers. Purgatory starts off with a quick and aggressive guitar riff in the left channel while a reinforcing rhythm can be heard in the right channel before all of the instruments start to go down the middle channel and Di’anno comes in with the vocals of the track.

      • riffs are interesting throughout the whole track.

        Although I said that this comes off as an aggressive song, there are also some pretty melodic parts to the track due to a lot of harmonized lead-like guitar riffs which Di’anno sings over, and does a pretty job I might add.

        One thing about this track which surprised me, and sort of made me disappointed, was that there was no section in this track which was pretty

        much devoted to guitar solos, generally Maiden always has a section like this without exception.

        However, I suppose since the riffs throughout the whole song were just great and there also various lead-like riffs throughout the track that this isn’t a huge flaw and I could certainly deal with it.

        Overall, Purgatory has an excellent flow throughout the track and the energy throughout the entire song is evident, definitely another good Maiden song to look into.
