5.0 out of 5 stars Instant classic! 19 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
After a melodic intro with Bruce showing a side of his vocals which we don't hear too often, the song blasts into a FANTASTIC guitar riff.

I was blown away the first time I heard the song!

What is special about this song too is that it doesn't have the tempo or rythm changes. And it doesn't need any of that either, it just just grooves away with a great melody line all the way.

It is also a more progressive track than one would might expect.

Anyway, I love it and think it's an instant classic.

I can't wait for the album!

The Radio 1 session recording of "Hallowed be thy name" is good, but I would have prefered something else(for instance tracks which didn't make it to the album or one of those cover versions).

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden still got it! 8 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
As a Life long Maiden fan I can honestly say i am not dissapointed with this track. I wait in eager anticipation for the album release and pending tour.

The track opens gently with Bruce luring you into his world, then crash bang usual Maiden riffs and Bruce's soaring voice.

Maiden back to the style of Piece of Mind, its a good un...

Mystery remains who is Benjamin Breeg?

4.0 out of 5 stars a grower... 26 Aug 2006
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Vinyl
`The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg' is on the face of it a slightly strange choice for a lead-off single from Iron Maiden's forthcoming new album, as it's a fairly long (over 7 minutes) and fairly slow song. It's also something of a grower, maybe nothing to get too excited about on first listen, but the more times you play it the more you'll find the song gets it's hooks in your head and wont let go.

The Radio 1 Session B-Sides (`Hallowed Be They Name' on the CD, `The Trooper and `Run to the Hills' on the rather delicious 10" clear vinyl) are the sort of classic tracks that most Maiden fans will probably already own at least a half dozen versions of from various live albums and DVDs, but these are at least superior to the frankly lacklustre B-Sides from the `Dance of Death' singles, and the band sound on lively form.

Good stuff.
