Free Music Friday #62: The Mighty Maiden

It has to be said that I am not a huge Iron Maiden fan. Well, to be fair, their music is OK - if they were an instrumental band, I think I'd like them better!

They have a new album coming out in August and to whet your appetite, they are making a track available as a free download. Also, for a limited time, you can pre-ordered the album at the special price of £4.99.

Head over to their official site and, in exchange for your email address, you can download El Dorado.

You certainly get your money's worth since the track is almost seven minutes long. And despite my opening comment, I quite like it. It helps that there is a good balance of instrumental sections to vocal sections!

What do you think? Are you a Maiden fan? If so, does this sound like classic Maiden to you? If you're not a fan, are you tempted by this track to give the album a shot when it is released?

{P.S. There was a tribute band that used to play one of the pubs near where I live called Made In Scotland... which amused me.}
