honestly, I'd go with Maiden. I started with maiden before priest, so I've listened to them longer, and I've always been a huge fan, especially after they came to dallas a few years back, and I got a tour shirt from them. don't get me wrong, I love priest, but maiden has always been a little more versatile when it comes to metal. their sound is unique, and because of this, maiden is in my top 5 bands, next to Opeth, and Nevermore.

Of course Iron Maiden...

They have so many good songs like Number of the Beast, Run to the Hills, The trooper, and hallowed be thy name... I like the way Hallowed be thy name builds up and I like the fast beat of the other songs...

I really don't know that much by Judas Priest anyway...

I have to admit that metal is a genre of music I don't particularly enjoy. Therefore, I don't know much about the bands.

After listening to these six songs, I have to say that Iron Maiden has a sound that is a little bit more appealing to me as it seems to be less metal (if that makes any sense to anyone), so that is a plus to someone who doesn't like this genre very much. Somehow, I enjoyed the sound of the guitars, especially on the song The Trooper, and also the way songs are sung (the singer doesn't scream as much as it seems to happen with Judas Priest's songs). So in a hypothetical situation in which I was given the choice, I would probably listen to Iron Maiden instead of Judas Priest. That's why they get my vote.

Therefore, I vote for Iron Maiden.

Maiden... not my cup of tea, Priest... great band, saw both several times (i remember a very nice twist here, somewhere in the 80´s Slayer were support for Priest... in the 90´s Priest were support for Slayer...), Priest is a live-legend and they have a really good song... Painkiller... so is easy: Judas Priest

iron maiden for sure.
ive seen them life multiple times. and it was awesome every time.

as kegaumongo said the singer doesn't scream/grunt to much. those are the bands i like most and if they have a great voice like iron maiden then i'm a fan.
their one of the greatest.

I thought I would like Judas Priests after listening to Helloween's cover of their song "Electric Eye". Honestly though, I prefer the cover, and was a bit let down when I heard their other songs. They're certainly not bad and seem to be legends among the American metal bands. But they're good, not great, to my ear.

Iron Maiden on the other side is an international beast. I prefer their more melodic music, and the vocals are definitely better than JP vocals. It's a clear vote for Iron Maiden.

Go Eddie! \\m/
