Wrathchild was origianally realeased on METAL FOR MULTHUS so Iron Maiden
decided not to put it on the first album. Loving the song as a stage
favorite Iron Maiden decided to re-record it better that the origianal
version. The biggest difference between the KILLERS version, and METAL
FOR MULTHUS is all the fills that were put in between the vocal lines.
Adrian was the one who wrote them and added them in altough Dave usually
nailed 'em live. To hear exactly how the fills and solo work in the song
listen to it carefully. You will also hear that there is a hint of delay
in every fill, a common trait for Dave.
        For the rhythm of the song check out Oskar Wigren's tab I found
it to be very accurate. Well good luck kids and enjoy!! Any comments or
requests for solo's or rhythm's  please e-mail me.     
                               UP THE IRONS!
