If you like "Painkiller" I don't see why you wouldn't like "Exciter"

Eh, just kind of boring.  I mean, even Painkiller is not perfect.

Be a pretty boring world if we all liked the same things. I was in a discussion at work last night where a guy actually claimed that Nirvana has had a larger influence on music than Maiden and that Maiden is probably the most overrated band ever. In Sargon's case I think he certainly can see why Priest gets the praise they do, he just simply doesn't care for it himself. The guy I was talking to last night is simply a brain dead moron that has apparently been using most of his paycheck to purchase crack...it's the only logical explanation.

Nirvana has probably had a similar level of influence on music in general (not specifically metal) to Iron Maiden, but I don't consider that to be a positive thing at all.

Can't we discuss the greatness of Turbo? ;)

Nirvana inspired a lot of bands but I would stack the sheer volume of Metal bands Maiden has inspired against them and bet it would be more.

Nirvana were certainly more "popular" in terms of airplay and exposure which probably was a big reason Cobain took his own life.

And no Chris, we cannot discuss the greatness of Turbo. Go in the corner.

Priest are hugely influential, second only to Sabbath, I would say.  Hard rock, trad metal, and power metal owe so much to Priest it's not even funny.  I just find a lot of their early output lackluster.  It was innovative when it came out, but it sounds weak to me now.

Have you tried listening to Defenders of the Faith? I know you think there only worthwhile album is Painkiller, but give the song The Sentinel a shot.
