No Prayer For The Dying Iron Maiden

No Prayer For The Dying Iron Maiden

It’s easy to forget about Iron Maiden in the 1980s. There was no “The Trooper” or “Run To The Hills” from them, but they still had some great songs:


“Tailgunner” is a song by Iron Maiden, and it’s the second track on their 1990 album No Prayer for the Dying. The song was written by Steve Harris, who also plays bass guitar in Iron Maiden, and Bruce Dickinson (who also sings lead vocals).

It tells the story of a pilot who is shot down during war time. In an interview with Loudwire Times magazine, Dickinson said: “This is about being shot down in a war and trying to get back home again… So we hope you like it.”

Holy smoke

The song is about the dangers of smoking, drugs and alcohol. It’s about junk food. It’s about gambling.

The song is actually a lot more than that though – it’s also about how these things can suck you in and destroy your life from the inside out.

No prayer for the dying

“No Prayer For The Dying” is a song by Iron Maiden. It was released on their 1990 album of the same name, and has since become a staple in their live performances. While it was written about the life of a soldier before he died (as evidenced by opening lyrics such as “You know I’m never gonna die”), fans often interpret its meaning as dealing with death itself: that there is no prayer for the dying because we all die in the end. This can be interpreted either literally or symbolically; if it’s taken literally, then it’s about how soldiers are willing to fight despite knowing they’ll die; if it’s taken symbolically, then it’s about how we’re all going to die regardless of what we do or where we go—even though we can’t escape death forever, some people find ways to keep living as long as possible even though they know their time on Earth will eventually come to an end at some point or another.”

Public enema number one

The first part of the song is about a man who has been convicted of a crime, and he’s being given an enema before his execution. The second stanza describes the scene as “no prayer for the dying”, meaning that no one is offering sympathy or support to him at that time.

The third stanza then goes into detail about what happens next:

“And they put you in a coat of mail, and they gave you a lance.” This means he was dressed in armor and given a weapon, before being led out to be executed. The fourth line says: “And they tied you upon your horse, with your face towards its tail.” This line might sound strange at first glance, but it’s actually referring to how they would tie up an animal’s tail so it wouldn’t get hurt during battle—and then turn it around so that any blood from an injury could run down onto the ground instead of onto themselves (or their clothing).

So far so good? Good!

Fates warning

Fates Warning is one of the best bands in history. They are a progressive metal band that uses many styles of music, including jazz, classical and folk music. This song is about nuclear war and how it could be a disaster for everyone on earth. The song starts out with a haunting piano riff that builds on itself until the verse kicks in at which point the vocals start overtop of heavy guitar riffs before fading into another section where there are no lyrics but instead just instrumental melodies that build into an epic chorus full of emotion as well as power chords played by two guitars at once underneath both singers singing different parts simultaneously. It also has some softer sections near the end where one singer sings softly while another plays acoustic guitar or keyboards while they sing together which leads into an epic ending with all three singers harmonizing overtop each other as well as playing their own instruments at once before fading out slowly like they were flying away from Earth toward space forever (or something like that).

The assassin

The song, “The Assassin,” is one of Iron Maiden’s best. It’s my favorite song on their 1988 album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. And if you’ve ever listened to Iron Maiden, you know this is one hell of an accomplishment!

The band has had a string of great albums since they started in 1975 with their self-titled debut album Iron Maiden. Since then they have released some really awesome music that includes:

  • Killers (1981)
  • The Number Of The Beast (1982)
  • Piece Of Mind (1983)

But nothing compares to the greatness that is Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son by far. This album features some very talented musicians who make it so good! For example: Adrian Smith is an amazing guitarist for them; he wrote some really catchy riffs like “The Clairvoyant” and “Moonchild.” Bruce Dickinson plays both lead vocals AND rhythm guitar while not missing a beat or note with his voice either; it sounds amazing when he sings live too!

Run silent run deep

This song is about a submarine. Specifically, it’s about a commander and his crew who are on a mission in a submarine. The commander and his crew are silent and running deep, meaning that they have to remain undetected by enemy forces or else their mission will fail.

This song is very much about the men who are serving on this submarine—their loyalty and devotion to each other and their country are evident in every line of music. Iron Maiden used no lyrics here (with one exception), instead allowing the music to convey all of its meaning.

Hooks in you

Iron Maiden are one of the most influential and important bands in heavy metal history. Their discography is stacked with quality, and their songs have been covered by countless other artists.

Of course, “No Prayer For The Dying” is no exception to this rule. It’s an excellent song that showcases the band’s ability to write great melodies and powerful choruses. The album itself is a true classic: it features multiple hits (including “Holy Smoke,” “Tailgunner,” and “Mother Russia”), as well as some tracks that aren’t as well known but can still hold their own against any other track on the album.

Bring your daughter to the slaughter

All hell is breaking loose. The band is going to take you on a trip through the gates of hell and back again, as they did with their previous releases. This time around, they’ve brought along their children who are ready to party like it’s 1999 all over again!

In order to get through this album, we need to go back in time before it came out so we can understand how much it means now.

Mother Russia

If you’re a fan of Iron Maiden, you’ll know that they are one of the most influential heavy metal bands in history. You’ll also know that this song is about Russia and how it was during the Cold War.

This song was written by Steve Harris, who is the bassist for Iron Maiden. It’s about how he felt when he first went to Russia as an exchange student in 1982 and saw how different it was from England—he didn’t just feel like he was seeing something new, but like he had been transported back in time thousands of years. Like some kind of ancient civilization had risen from its grave! As if Russia were somehow still connected with its past history as a superpower; even though it no longer has nuclear weapons or military power or anything like that anymore… In fact now we see Putin using religion instead (and calling himself “Czar”). But back then there was still hope for change – hope that maybe someday communism would go away and capitalism could come into play again too!

Try to listen to it

If you’ve got a half hour to spare, give it a shot. I’m not going to tell you that this is an album for everyone (it’s not), but if Iron Maiden is your cup of tea then you should definitely give it a listen. A lot of people consider this one of their best albums ever made and it might just surprise you in ways you never expected!

To get started, try listening to the first track. Then move on to the second song and so forth until they’re all done (but don’t forget about the hidden track at the end!)

I hope you will enjoy the music of Iron Maiden. They are a band that has helped shape my life and I want others to have the same experience as me.
