Let's put this to bed right now.

Early 2018 on the Rush Forum has seen a lot of BRITISH METAL TYPE!!!

Most love Maiden.  Most love Priest!  Some really love SAXON like me!!!!

Let's face it.  Ghost blew Iron Maiden away last year on tour.  I am sure many of you will argue that.  But for me Bruce sounded and looked like a homeless BUM!  He was bloody awful.

I saw SAXON last year.  They opened for another great band that is shite now.  UFO.  SAXON blew UFO off the stage.

So now kids SAXON is opening up for JUDAS PRIEST!

It's going to be EPIC!!!!

But!!!!

Thanks to our very own rock star interviewer and amazing prog metal head Rod he has put Iron Maiden above these other two bands.

So let's truly see where these three TITANIC METAL BANDS RANK!

I'm fuckking confused man because it's hard but it has to be JUDAS PRIEST for me!

I like Saxon and Maiden a lot, I've got all their albums, studio albums anyway, but PRIEST are the choice without even thinking about it.

I voted for the band that never...EVER released a pop tune. When the other choices in this poll were scrapping the bottom of the barrel and covering Johnny B Goode or "Riding Like the Wind", Maiden were doing a metal concept album with icebergs on stage.

You say no, I say yes...Up the Irons!!!!

Iron Maiden

And I won't deny it, I might not be familiar with all of Judas Priests studio work, but I am Maiden, and Maiden haven't done anything to match the badness of Breaking The Law or the entire Nostradamus album.

Wake me up when Priest or Saxon play for a 300,000 crowd. Twice. And 15 years apart, like Maiden did in Rio in 1985 and 2000.

Priest! I was way more of a Maiden fan growing up, but these days I greatly prefer Priest. There's just a directness and attitude with them that I respond to more. That's why the first two Maiden albums are my favorite now too.

Nope.

But they made a nice career out of doing average versions of Priest riffs.

I like them a lot, but they're just not on the same league as Priest and Maiden.

While Priest have done some stuff worthy of criticism like most of Point Of Entry and Turbo. Maiden hasn't had a flawless discography either as the 90s were not a good time for them creatively. Also, Riding On The Wind is a good little rocker.

I don't see why Maiden being able to draw 300,000 people to some festivals automatically makes them the better band. It's musical quality we're judging them by not how many people they can draw. We all know of bad bands who fill arenas and great ones that can't even get 50 people through the door.

That being said I did vote for Maiden. Always enjoyed them a little bit more than Priest.

Tougher than I thought.  Post 7th Son Maiden has many missteps.  And SFV is my favorite album by any of these bands.  But when they’re on, Maiden gets the nod.

Saxon’s best work gets clobbered by anything Priest or Maiden released.

1.Iron Maiden - based mostly on their 80's discography (all albums are really strong)
2.Judas Priest - based on their 70's discography (minus the debut) plus Painkiller, 80's Priest is a bit commercial-sounding and overrated to me
3.Saxon - they were very good, but they just don't have that remarkable discography as classic-era Priest or Maiden (that being said Denim & Leather, Wheels of Steel and Strong Arm of Law are killer heavy metal records in one row)

Priest's Achilles heel might be campiness, whereas Maiden's weakness for me is pseudo-intellectual pretense.  I'll take Killers as the top album from both bands' catalogues, but Priest's top songs create a stronger playlist.

Tough call, so I'll let the people vote..  All those for Maiden raise your hands...

To British rock and metal fans Saxon is a titan for sure. In the USA they have never made it big.

The first Saxon album is my favorite. Rainbow Theme/Frozen Rainbow rules.
