Despite their decades long career at the forefront of hard rock and metal, I’ve never really got into Iron Maiden.
They are one of the most iconic bands, with strong branding and bold, distinctive visuals to go with their sound.
With “Fear Of The Dark”, the title track of their 1992 album, there’s a lot to admire. The gentle, melodic introduction, replete with a winning, softly picked guitar progression, grabs your attention.
Then when the song blazes into action, you’re treated to hard hitting guitar solos, furious drums and some heavy shredding.
And I think at some level we can all relate to being afraid of the unknown night!
