Priest VS Maiden


#018 Prowler med Frode Helmic Pedersen

Season 2, Ep. 18

Frode Hemlic Pedersen er førsteamanuensis i nordisk litteratur ved UiB, årets litteraturkritikar 2021 og forfattar aktuell med boka Splinten i øyet. Men han spelte og med Bård i black metal bandet Asmodeus , og vokste opp med heavy som mange av oss andre. I denne episoden diskuterer vi tekstane til Priest og Maiden. Kva vil dei med tekstene? Kva for ein litterær tradisjon høyrer tekstforfattarane til? Og sist men ikkje minst: Kven er best på tekstar, Priest eller Maiden?

Frodes favoritter:


Album: Defenders of the faith


  1. Jawbreaker
  2. Freewheel burning
  3. Breaking the law


Album: Powerslave


  1. Aces high (live after death-versjonen)
  2. Prowler
  3. Somewhere in time

Spoiler alert! Frode sitt poeng gjekk til Maiden, stillinga etter denne episoden er derfor (totalt) Priest 6,5 - Maiden 5,5

#025 The Trooper with Nate Bergman

Season 3, Ep. 25
This is our first (but not last!) episode in english! This podcast raises the very important question: Which is the better band, Priest or Maiden? While we don't like polarizing opinions, we love discussing every aspect of those two bands with our guests. Each guest tells which band the prefer, but can only give 1 point based on the aspect we are discussing. If you like, you can check the unedited episode on YouTube.Our first english-speaking guest is the powerhouse singer Nate Bergman. He fronted the now legendary Lionize for many years, and this week his first solo album Metaphysical Change placed at number 8 on the Top New Artist Albums chart on Billboard. He just got off the road supporting the mighty Clutch, but he's alway on the road, check his webpage or Facebook for dates! We talk about how Nate got into Priest and Maiden, his first meeting with Neil Fallon from Clutch, his top Priest and Maiden tunes, and we'll find out if Rob Halford or Bruce Dickinson is his favourite singer of the two. We also talk pizza, and herring! Thanks Nate for guesting!
