If Maiden wants to squeeze out another 5 solid years, they should start tuning down half a step so Bruce won't have to continuously strain himself.
Good point about the sound mix. I forgot to mention that, seen Maiden 3 times with fucked up mix, Priest never had those problems. And Rob in his prime was better than Bruce in his. It's my opinion, I know most people won't like it but I don't give a shit.
I love both bands, just trying to be honest. Not biased towards either. Most of the time it comes down to opinions anyways.
