Welcome, one and all, to the Iron Maiden Survivor! It’s been over two years since these legends of metal have had a survivor on DTF, so I think this is long overdue. I know the Irons have a lot of fans here, so hopefully we’ll have a lot of people voting in this survivor.

It’s worth noting that this is the first time I’m doing one of these, so if anyone more experienced than I has any suggestions on how to make this proceed more smoothly, I’m all ears. That said, I think I have a pretty good idea of what I’m doing.


Rules:
  • This survivor will include all 16 Iron Maiden studio albums, from the self-titled debut through last year’s The Book of Souls.
  • I plan to include Sanctuary, Twilight Zone and Total Eclipse with their respective albums (Sanctuary—Iron Maiden, Twilight Zone—Killers, Total Eclipse—The Number of the Beast. I know that many of the original pressings of these albums did not include these songs, but I think this is the most efficient way to handle these songs, which are included in the main track sequence on the current commercially available versions of these albums.
  • I do not yet have a plan for how to handle the other non-album tracks, so I’ll pose the question to the participants—they could be included on their respective albums, or they could have their own little survivor, or something else entirely. We would also have to decide what non-album tracks are worthy of conclusion. Here’s a list for people to dispute and add to/remove from:
    • Women in Uniform (it’s a cover but it was somewhat important early in the band’s history)
    • Virus
    • Judgment Day
    • Justice of the Peace
  • I’m planning to have 48 hour rounds and do two albums simultaneously. I think that 24 hours is too short a time window for a survivor round, and if we do the albums one at a time, it will take us forever to get through them all.
  • The top two songs from each album will go to finals. The 3rd place song from each album will go to consolations. If an album has 10 or more songs, the 4th place song on that album will also go to consolations. The winner of the small bonus track survivor will also go to consolations. There will be 26 songs in consolations. The top 2 songs in consolations will go to finals, so there will be 34 songs in finals.
  • I plan to do tiebreaker votes in each case where there is a tie. If there is a tie in the tiebreaker, I think it makes most sense to go by total votes.
  • This isn't even something that can really be policed, but I absolutely do endorse strategic voting.


A few questions for participants:
  • What do you think of the bonus track issue? Does it make sense to include Women in Uniform? Are there other bonus tracks I should be including? Should there be a mini-survivor of those four? Or something else?
  • Any objections to 48 hour rounds, with two albums run simultaneously?
  • What do you think about the number of songs that go into finals/consolations from each round? Should we add a second song to consolations for everybody (which would allow all four of the songs that people love on Powerslave to make finals/consolations), or would a 32 song consolation and 34-36 song finals be way too much (I think it might very well be)? How should the numbers be adjusted based on the number of tracks an albums has?



Please, I do want input from those participating on how to handle these issues. Or if there's anything else you think I should change.

The survivor itself will probably start towards the end of the week. I want to get some of these technical things figured out and to be able to make sure we have a sufficient number of voters before we launch into this massive undertaking. That’ll also give people enough time to relisten to Iron Maiden and Killers, since I anticipate running those two at the same time. Anyway, please participate and give feedback about the rules!

Having had this post reserved from the start, I'll now add this message so that there's some document of it at the start of the main thread for posterity:

I ran this survivor from the beginning through the first few rounds of finals. Unfortunately, as time went on, I had less and less time to check DTF and post survivor threads on a regular basis. This created a real problem for the progress of the survivor. At this time, I handed the survivor over to wolfking on his request. This would not have been finished if it weren't for him, so he deserves to be credited right up here at the top of the thread for his role in this.

Thanks to wolfking, co-host of the Iron Maiden Survivor 2016-17, for carrying it across the finish line!

It sounds like you are going to be a pro at running this thing.

I'm cool with having the bonus tracks in any type of a poll, either in a separate poll or with their corresponding album.

This will be cool!

I wouldn't bother with the bonus tracks. While I actually like Total Eclipse, none of those are going to make it past the album voting. At two days per song, you're adding 16 days onto the the thing. If anybody here says they'd put one of those in the top three of their respective albums then I stand corrected.

You might consider staggering the two rounds so that there's a new one every day. I say that, of course, since I don't have to run the thing.  :lol

Thirty-two+ songs are definitely too many for the finals. However, I have no idea what you could do about it.

Thank you for running this.

I don't have any strong opinions on how to run this.  I know I normally would be big on doing a bonus round of songs, but honestly the ones you listed are the only really good b-sides.  I know others really like the stuff from "Best of the B-sides" but I know I particularly do not.  But whatever you chose is fine by me.  IM is my favorite band so I plan on participating regardless.

I think it makes sense to include Sanctuary, Twilight Zone and Total Eclipse, for the reasons you stated.

Women in Uniform et al. don't need to be included at all, I feel.  But I wouldn't mind if you wanted to do a Best of the B-sides round or something.  Women in Uniform is terrible anyway haha.

2 winners and 1 song to consolation sounds fine to me as well.

The only other bsides worth imo are the ones from the X factor, those songs are better than some of the tracks on the album.  But I am fine with just including these three songs, they are on all of my IM CDs so I've always thought of them as album tracks even though I know they technically were not originally.

This is what I planned to do. Say I start Iron Maiden on Wednesday, I'll start Killers on Thursday. That type of thing.

Thirty-two+ songs are definitely too many for the finals. However, I have no idea what you could do about it.

Yeah, I don't think it's possible to avoid having that many songs in the finals, because I think having fewer than one per album is too restrictive—try choosing just one finals-worthy song from Powerslave, for example. But I do think one song per album to consolations will be sufficient, so we'll have about 16 songs in consolations and take the top two for the epic 34 song finals.


What I'm hearing on bonus tracks is that nobody cares about Women in Uniform and a few people care about the X Factor bonus tracks. Anyone object to a short little three-song survivor of those tracks, run at the same time as the album survivor, where the winner gets a spot in consolations? Seems like the best way to work those in, and if most people truly don't care about them, the winner of the mini-survivor will get voted out of consolations quickly.

Sanctuary will definitely be included with the debut—some initial pressings of the album included it, and it appears frequently live, so I can't see why not include it. I'm pretty convinced that including Twilight Zone on Killers and Total Eclipse on The Number of the Beast is fair enough as well. They've been considered "part of the albums" since 1998, so a lot of younger (<30) fans consider them to be part of those albums. And I don't think Total Eclipse, at least, will finish last on its album.

If anyone has additional input, I'm still open to it.

As indicated earlier, I'm planning to get Iron Maiden started on Wednesday and Killers started on Thursday. That should give people enough time to relisten to those albums if they feel that they have to.

Count me in..

So... about the questions, I don't mind about the first two.. Regarding the songs going to the finals, I don't understand why there should be a problem with 34 songs on it.. They have 16 albums.. If you've decided to do this survivor, thing that we all appreciate, then you wanna do it as if you're doing it for a younger band, or any other band.. The more albums, the more songs going to the finals.. I don't see the problem with that.. Ok, it'll take long to get to the winner, but more time of IM's survivor and more suspense.. ;)

Just got the first thread going. Here's what I've decided on the big questions:

1) Bonus tracks will be in a separate survivor, probably run concurrently with The X Factor since most/all of them come from that era. We'll finalize a list by the time we get to that point in the survivor.

2) We are going to do 48 hour rounds with two rounds simultaneously. I started Iron Maiden round 1 tonight, Killers round 1 will start around the same time tomorrow night.

3) As big as a finals of 34 songs is, I think ToT-147 is completely right that it is absolutely necessary. Therefore, the finals will consist of the top two songs from each album and the top two songs from consolations. Consolations will feature the third-place song from each album that has 8 or 9 tracks, and the third- and fourth-place songs from each album that has 10, 11 or 12 tracks. The reason for this is that with this variation in numbers, the percentage of an album that makes either finals or consolations will be between 33% and 40%. My thinking has always been that the ideal situation is an album of 8 tracks where 2 make finals and 1 makes consolations, because this is significantly less than half and more than a quarter: 37.5%. With the variation in number, no album will have more than 4/10 of its songs in a finals or consolations round or fewer than 1/3, so this makes perfect sense to me.

With these numbers in mind, consolations will have 26 songs—25 from albums and 1 from the winner of the bonus track survivor.

As stated, first album survivor is up! Go forth and vote!

Iron Maiden Round 8 Results:

Remember Tomorrow - 15 votes - 75.0%
Phantom of the Opera - 5 votes - 25.0%


Phantom of the Opera is the Iron Maiden album champion!


Results:
1. Phantom of the Opera
2. Remember Tomorrow

3. Transylvania
4. Prowler
5. Strange World
6. Running Free
7. Sanctuary
8. Iron Maiden
9. Charlotte the Harlot

____________

We're still a couple of rounds away from being done with the Killers survivor, and in the interest of organization, I want to start the next two albums at the same time. So until Killers is finished, it'll be the only album running, and then once its final round is over, I'll start the The Number of the Beast and then Piece of Mind 24 hours later. So if you want to relisten to those two albums, you probably have something like 4-6 days before their survivors begin.

Revelations was this close to winning... awesome!!! so happy to have helped to bring to the finals the song that started an avalanche effect with my appreciation for it 21 years ago, making me a lifelong Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden and metal fan in general  :metal

This batch of survivors just started, but the next one will have Seventh Son and No Prayer running together. One will be torture, the other a lot easier, hehe! So many awesome songs on the first, and so many songs to vote out without a second thought on the latter...
