Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Studio Version)

69 milj. näkymät12 030

    Hallowed Be Thy Name is the eigth and final track on the British heavy metal band Iron Maidens 3rd studio album, The Number of the Beast. The song describes a man's thoughts just before being sent to the gallows. He begins to feel terror and realizes he really is afraid of dying, despite claims that he's not. At the end of the vocal section, the man gets executed; this is followed by a long instrumental section, culminating in his ambiguous final words, Hallowed be thy name.
    Hallowed Be Thy Name begins with a slow tempo and builds up later in the song. Bruce Dickinson showcases his wide vocal range and power at both slow and fast tempo. This song is considered one of Iron Maiden's classics, and is a staple at live concerts. The first guitar solo is played by Dave Murray, and the second by Adrian Smith. Since Smith left the band and was replaced by Janick Gers, Gers has played Smith's solo, even after Smith returned to the band.
    The cover depicts Bruce Dickinson being impaled from behind by Eddie, in the form of Satan. The same idea of Eddie killing the departing vocalist had previously been used on the cover of the Venezuelan release of Maiden Japan (with him holding the severed head of Paul Di'Anno). This theme was also used during Bruce Dickinson's farewell performance, during the Raising Hell concert, where horror Illusionist Simon Drake, after seemingly killing Dickinson, gets impaled by Eddie.
    The song has also been released as a live single from the 1993 album A Real Dead One and on The Best of the Beast, and has become a live staple for Iron Maiden.

    Im waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime
    Reflecting on my past life and it doesnt have much time
    Cos at 5 o clock they take me to the gallows pole
    The sands of time for me are running low

    When the priest comes to read me the last rights
    I take a look through the bars at the last sights
    Of a world that has gone very wrong for me

    Can it be theres some sort of error
    Hard to stop the surmounting terror
    Is it really the end not some crazy dream?

    Somebody please tell me that Im dreaming
    Its not so easy to stop from screaming
    But words escape me when I try to speak
    Tears they flow but why am I crying
    After all I am not afraid of dying
    Dont believe that there is never an end

    As the guards march me out to the courtyard
    Someone calls from a cell God be with you
    If theres a God then why has he let me die?

    As I walk all my life drifts before me
    And though the end is near Im not sorry
    Catch my soul cos its willing to fly away

    Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
    Please dont worry now that I have gone
    Ive gone beyond to see the truth

    When you know that your time is close at hand
    Maybe then youll begin to understand
    Life down there is just a strange illusion.

      Is this the hardest song to sing? Look at the speed you need...

      1. Ale17

        don't look at the speed, look at the tone of voice with which it is sung, that's the hard part of the song

    9. Pedro Moreira

      Brasil! Sou Iron Maiden 🙏

    10. Joseph Paez

      I dont understand why the big 4 in metal are Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, and does not make sense..... Anthrax. There are so many better bands than Anthrax. Maiden is way over the top over Anthrax! ...I have always thought it was because Anthrax is from NYC (east coast) and jewish.

      1. S

        Because Maiden is not thrash..
