Quoted from pinmister:
Not sure if Iron Maiden will be for me or not, I know like one song-"Run for the Hills". I also was not keen on Metallica when it got announced but the layout sold me and I actually remember all of the Metallica songs growing up. Now Metallica is in my top five machines for my collection. This game will have to have a solid layout and polished code for me to even consider, definitely would be a pro model as well if I did like it. Hope it sells well and is a good title for Stern.
I know I’m going to be hated on for this opinion, but here goes. Lol
In the United States, I cant speak for Europe, Iron Maiden is a Merch band ala KISS. Known more for the image of their mascot Eddie than any song they ever wrote. The difference is, and it’s hard to believe, Maiden had LESS success on the US charts than KISS. I get it, Eddie is a cool visual, and Metal !!!! Hell, I’ll buy one! But Iron Maiden probably wouldn’t sell anywhere near a Met or AcDc. Ok, let the hate begin. Lol
Also, I will note, on my visits to Europe, Germany in particular where they had very impresssive and expensive record shops, Maiden was held in much higher esteem musically.
It probably doesn’t help that their biggest hit is an Englishman lecturing Americans about colonialism, of all things. It boggles the brain. It would require a Pom to be fully unaware of the irony.
Enjoy that LE The Backglass should be epic!
I always associated Centaur with Judas Priest. To me, that is their licensed machine.
But, Enough with the Grandpa Rock! If you’re going to do metal in 2018, make it Black Metal, and make it the f’n antichrist in pinball form. That’s edgy fun, relevant and makes you think and feel a bit funny. All the things that made Judas Priest and pinball awesome in 1975. And Eddie ain’t cutting it, my little sister buys Iron Maiden gear from Hot Topic at the mall.
Didn’t I see a Led Zep machine rumored in Mr Pinball somewhere? Now that’s timeless.
Quoted from Hazoff:
Zepplin is timeless and Priest is not? or Maiden? u are confused my friend. Anyway Black Metal can be nice and all but Slayer would be the best all around Evil pin for me, Mercyful Fate would work as well. Centaur while a fine game has nothing to do with music.
Slayer would be so rediculously amazing. I’ll take 3 in LE , please. until then My Walking Dead has been converted to Slayer audio files.
You, good sir, are one of few people on this planet to have ever uttered the words ‘Zeppelin’ and ‘Priest’ in the same sentence. So rare, I am afraid it will trigger the poles to flip.
