When ranking Iron Maiden albums from worst to best, you’ll more likely than not find the two 90’s albums that Blaze Bayley sang lead vocals on as the worst (The X Factor and Virtual XI), although technically there is no such thing as a bad Iron Maiden album. But how about the worst during one of the two Bruce Dickinson eras? Land that one to 1990’s No Prayer for the Dying, that was released 30 years ago today (10/1/90). The album marked Maiden’s first linup change since 1982 as guitarist Adrian Smith was replaced by Janick Gers. Although No Prayer contained the band’s only UK Singles Chart No. 1, with “Bring Your Daughter… to the Slaughter” the rest of the album contains a lackluster run of songs that never really stuck in tour setlists beyond this go-around. Check out the official video for “Holy Smoke” off No Prayer for the Dying…
No Prayer For The Dying is a fantastic album
I’m so sick and tired of the hate.
