Iron Maiden, one of best heavy rock Bands is coming first time to India and is going to perform in Palace Grounds in Bangalore on 17th March. The UK band would be first ever international Metal act to perform in India and it is fanatstic opportunity for fans of Bruce Dickinson , Dave Murray and Steve harris. Last time when I attended Deep Purple show in Bangalore, there were huge organisational problems as drinking water at the venue had run out quickly and dehydrated fans had created a riot like situation. Considering that Iron Maiden is hard code metal band I just hope that this time organisers would be prepared for most pits , wall of death and of course would provide ample water and not just Pepsi and coke.
Iron Maiden has such an amazing collection of songs and their concert is going to be real rocker of a party as they are going to bring the entire stage show as used in Europe. It is expected that fans of hard metal genre from not only India but also form neighbouring countries are going to come for this rare concert in subcontinent. I hope I get the ticket for the show as it would be a real treat to hear the anthem of song "Hallowed be thy Name" live. Hallowed be thy name describes a man's thought just before he is sent to the gallows. Some believe that it is the greatest metal song of all times though that it is subjective. I particulary like this song for various reasons. I like the way it starts in slow temo and then slowly builds upto the explosive climax with fantastic piece of guitaring . Last few lines from lyrics of "Hallowed be thy Name"
As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near Im not sorry
Catch my soul cos its willing to fly away
Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
Please dont worry now that I have gone
Ive gone beyond to see the truth
When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then youll begin to understand
Life down there is just a strange illusion.
