Well, considering MEtallica probably wouldn't be half as good as they are if it weren't for Iron Maiden, I gotta say Iron Maiden. THey are metal geniuses, they have three lead/rythhm guitarists who all pull off amazing solos without getting too cluttered in almsot every song they have. Plus, pure musicianship, Janick Gers, Dave MUrray and Adrian SMith are all some of the most amazing metal guitarists ever, their technique is absolutely impeccable and their showmanship is amazing as well. Also, Iron Maiden is a purer form of metal than Metallica. Metallica is great but they aren't stragiht metal, they have punk influences and more bluesy influences whereas Iron Maiden takes the classical route regarding to song writing and solos. THanks for reading.

no band on earth is better than iron maiden...i love metallica too...but i get bored wid their songs...i dont feel somethng inside me ...but i feel it wen i listen to any song by maiden...a maiden worshipper acquires a unique attitude,sense of feeling,a pride...they influence ur soul metallica can sure play riffs faster n complicated ...but tat s plain music...nothin more than music...u do carry a metallica attitude...but then u get bored... maiden is an eternal god....their songwriting,themes,vocals,guitar riffs,bass riffs,drumming style(which is actually different frm most drummers),the feel i can go on and on for maiden

Iron maiden are far better. James Hetfield's voice is quite monotonous to me, and maiden display a greater diversity when it comes to songwriting. Although it has to be said that Enter sandman is a very good song, metallicas material does not come close to song like fear of the dark by iron maiden.

Well I must admit I'm a fan of both but Iron Maiden definately has the edge as I've been a fan of them for 20 years! (OMG I sound ancient) Bruce Dickenson by far has the more superior voice! Metallica does fall into the catagory of a bit samey samey at times but their S & M Album was excellent!

I won't deny that I am much more of a bigger fan of Metallica. I've grown up listening to these guys and even though I'm a bit tired of them nowadays, I can still go and have a spin at a full lenght album by them, unlike with Iron, which I can only listen to some particular songs withouth getting bored quickly.
