My personal favorite of the three instrumentals they wrote is definitely Genghis Khan. The galloping feel of the music really captures the feeling as if you're watching Genghis Khan himself actually riding off into battle and pillaging any villages that stand in the way of his wrath. The music is stellar and the twin guitar harmony near the end is absolutely soaring and epic. I wish they would have written more instrumentals, they're great! Comment below if you wish.

Btw, i forgot to include Ides of March, but I guess it wouldn't really matter, considering it's an intro to Wrathchild. But if you wish to vote for it, feel free to comment for that below!

Transylvania was one of the first metal songs I remember hearing, so I'm going with that one for nostalgia's sake, though Losfer Words is great as well.

I haven't listened to Iron Maiden in ages, but I remember that Transylvania was a great instrumental. I also remember that I didn't really like Losfer Words.

Another vote for Transylvania.

Losfer Words is a great one too. It was about to be just a regular song with lyrics, but Steve couldn't think of any (hence the title). I'm glad it ended up being an instrumental, it changes things up a bit on Powerslave, since this song sounds similar musically to The Duelists and like one or two sections of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
