The eighth studio album by English heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Following their previous progressive productions 'Somewhere in Time' and 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son', 'No Prayer for the Dying' sounds much more earthy and is slightly reminiscent of the band's earlier works. Dickinson experimented with changes in his vocal style on 'No Prayer for the Dying'. His voice is rougher and more raw than before. It's also notable that the synthesizer passages have been pushed into the background. For a long time, 'No Prayer for the Dying' was Iron Maiden's last album to go Gold in the USA.
