  • The music during the verse isn’t extremely up-front and I’d say that Dickinson certainly leads throughout the verse, which is really no surprise to be honest, but during the transitions the music certainly takes on a more up-front role and is actually pretty aggressive to be honest

      Be Quick Or Be Dead is a song by Iron Maiden which appears on their record Fear Of The Dark. Be Quick Or Be Dead starts off with a brief drum section before the guitars and bass come in with a pretty quick and aggressive riff to start the song off with.

      Dickinson doesn’t spend much time waiting to come in with his vocals as he comes in pretty


      quickly with an energetic vocal delivery and a bit of an edge in his voice.

      Dickinson does utilize a studio dub in the chorus of this track which I’m typically not too crazy about, and I’m still not, but it does work which is a good thing.

      Dickinson sort of comes off as if he’s really trying to sound aggressive on this track so I can’t exactly say that ...


      • he sounds totally natural, but his vocal tone isn’t too bad so I’m not going to complain about this.

        The music during the verse isn’t extremely up-front and I’d say that Dickinson certainly leads throughout the verse, which is really no surprise to be honest, but during the transitions the music certainly takes on a more up-front role and is actually pretty aggressive to be honest.

        The song moves

        by pretty quickly, also considering that the track is just about three and a half minutes, so there aren’t really extended sections here for either instrumentals or vocals.

        Because of this the song isn’t extremely developed as other Maiden songs but this is a good song to listen to if you just want something by Maiden which has a fast and aggressive feel to it but also has some solid songwriting as well.
