iron Maiden The Wicker Man (Brave new worlD, 2000)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

Few hor­ror movies are as re­li­ably un­set­tling as robin hardy’s dis­tinctly english but deeply sin­is­ter 1973 mas­ter­piece. When Sgt. Neil howie in­ves­ti­gates a girl’s dis­ap­pear­ance on the re­mote he­bridean is­land, he finds his christian val­ues chal­lenged by what seems to be a pa­gan cult. In the un­likely event that you haven’t seen it, it doesn’t end well for the po­lice­man. Sorry. Maiden’s an­themic paean to the movie doesn’t delve deep into the plot, but it does cap­ture the mad-eyed in­ten­sity of its un­for­get­table end­ing. oh God! oh Je­sus christ!

CHOICE LYRIC: “Your tongue has frozen now you’ve got some­thing to say / The piper at the gates of dawn is call­ing you his way”

Iron Maiden want you to keep your ap­point­ment with the Wicker Man
