Powerslave

Lyrics

Into the abyss I'll fall-the eye of Horus
Into the eyes of the night-watching me go
Green is the cat's eye that glows-in this temple
Enter the risen Osiris-risen again.

Oh... Yall must be from UK, but very true. Can't miss their greatness.
Wow what a f**king great song
Iron Maiden made studying history in school so fun. They wrote songs about true topics. They made me want to learn more about what they were writing about. "Up the Irons"
One of the greatest bands and still going
This is boss
Great
Somwhere in time
What the f**k then ur ears don't work because a matter of life and death was a masterpiece. Sick lyrics and music.
Everybody here is dumb as f**k if you say powerslave was the last good one because seventh son is an excellent album
Great lyrics

Up the Irons \m/
Truly wonderful musicianship wound perfectly together with intelligent, thought- provoking lyricism. One example from their extensive catalogue of perfect songwriting for the ages!!!
yeah, what he said..... (far_past_mi d n i g h t )
You listen to this & know there's something wrong in this world when Maiden's NOT in the so-called R&R Hall of Fame while Blondie & Run-DMC are.

Powerslave was my first taste of the Maiden, and it was goooood
Powerslave was akin to Master of Puppets...ne x t album for both groups was good, not great, and after that, only a few songs were worthy of their reputation.
EPIC! Personally Somewhere in Time was the bookend for me as the stuff that came after that one just didn't compare to what came before. It must've been something else to see the Powerslave tour.
motly cru sucks a**

Dont get me wrong, I love Iron Maiden, but Powerslave was the last album that really blew me away. Their first five albums (anybody remember albums?) were just awesome, but then they started getting into this "epic" storytelling , and don't even get me started about "Bring your daughter to the slaughter"!
HA HA HA HA u don't know a thing about my musical knowledge--i have heard everything top to bottom in this genre and have listed to most of it long before you were born, most likely. motley crue is horrible and an example of the worst group of musicians ever to get a record contract. they give most of the good bands in the genre a bad name. i have more respect for britney spears than motley crue.
jacobcoite
shihan if u like this but not motley crue u havent heard good music
one of murray's best solos
e.spanto
heavy metal and he-man!!!!!
i love Steve's bass near the end of the song in the instrumental part.
masterpiece
love it...one of my fave metal bands
Need more songs from Powerslave on Pandora.
Best song on the Power Slave album.
According to Dickinson, "Powerslave" is "about a dying Pharaoh. He's about to die and he finds himself a slave to the power of death, as well as the slave to his own power. When a Pharaoh dies, all the slaves that built his grave and prepared his funeral have to die too. Even if he didn't want it, his power implies without question that these people must die, far beyond his own will. Basically, he's a prisoner of his power.
I second that! I was just looking for Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner!
The Powerslave album is distressingl y absent from Pandora
