An already good sound

Iron Maiden demos from the seventies! The "Iron Maiden" song is interpreted by Harris and delivers a more 70's feel with its downtempo. But it still rocks. The main novelty here is the track "Invasion" which carries well its name. Agressive and catchy mini-epic song with great solos and lots of changes in only 3 minutes. You could easily imagine invaders and knights while listening to it. The last song is "Prowler", which, as for "Iron Maiden", is slower than in the album version, but still interesting as it sounds 70's.

Although I prefer the album versions, these demos are worth a try, especially for early IRON MAIDEN and heavy metal fans.
