The great off British Steel:

Rapid Fire
Metal Gods
Grinder (mainly for the riff)
The Rage
Steeler

Everything else is good and completes the album well. Still, this album is middle of the pack for me. I like the run from Sad Wings through Killing Machine, Screaming, Defenders, Painkiller, Angel, Redeemer and Firepower better than British Steel.

I love

Metal Gods
Rapid fire
Grinder
The Rage (awesome)
Steeler

I really don't have a problem with anything exept United.

this album still gets a 9 from me.

and kicks the shit out of Point of Entry, Turbo, and Ram it down.

Painkiller is for me the most metal album I have ever heard.

It's just the greatest blast of metal o have ever heard! It's so OTT it's almost like a parody but it's just...every play takes my breath away.

So after a lot of extensive listening to both bands, it's very close the a tie but I still favour Iron Maiden by a hair. I can be swayed to believe Priest have more variety, have been around longer and perhaps have at times even been better.

But I get more excitement from 80s Maiden than I do almost any other band ever (actually, perhaps ever). The run from Iron Maiden through to No Prayer For The Dying is just orgasmic to me.

As for Priest, it's seriously close. Painkiller alone is enough to convince me they are the greatest metal band of all time. Perhaps this will change the more I get to listen to everything else by both bands. But talking both bands up to 1990, Maiden barely surpass Priest for me.

i've been listening to Maiden more.....BUT i still prefer Priest.  To me i don't think Maiden  did comes close to the brutal Painkiller or the great pop-ish/metal of Screaming For Vengeance (can't say enough about this  Record!!!) Add Killing Machine and Stained class.....and they have it.

i love Maiden.  but i've noticed even in the classic era the songs ramble a bit more (a problem that only got worse in the reunion era) Preist always wrote kick ass and straight to the point anthems.

so again........Love both but Priest gets the edge to me.

The more I play Painkiller the more I can see myself ranking Priest higher.

Wish I'd got into them sooner!

This album would have dominated my teens

British Steel is also massively superior upon relistens. I think Screaming For Vengeance and Steel may be better than Defenders.

But currently nothing pleases me more than Painkiller!
