No. 4: Iron Maiden, ‘The Talisman’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs


It’s very possible that you’ve never heard Iron Maiden‘s ‘The Talisman,’ but as a band who are legendary for writing some of the greatest epics in metal history, ‘The Talisman’ is without a doubt one of the best tracks of the band’s career.

The nine-minute ‘Talisman’ begins with an acoustic intro lasting over two minutes, but Maiden hit hard with the remaining seven as vocalist Bruce Dickinson explores his full range throughout the track, sounding as incredible as ever. As the other five Maiden members circle Dickinson with masterful precision, Bruce uses his unmatched skills as a harmonious storyteller to paint an intricate mental picture for his audience.
