Valkyrie on the track "Kaine" from their "Alice's nightmare" was slightly Maiden influenced as well as in places early Agent Steel, though AS were "slightly" heavier than Maiden ... :wink:

I think it's safe to say that probably 80 or 90% of the traditional style bands from the 80's took influence from Maiden based on the massive popularity of the band. I really don't see the point of this topic. It's like asking which Thrash bands sound like Metallica.

Maybe 3 or 4, most Thrash bands got mainly influenced by Slayer, coz Metallica have been Power/Thrash or Speed Metal in the very beginning.

Lord Weird Slough Feg's "Twilight of the idols" REALLY reminds me of the first 2 MAIDEN Lp's.

First GRIFFIN (US) LP has a lot of early Maiden in it to my mind.

The Texan band SANCTUS had a strong early Maiden influence.
A compilation of their unreleased '80's recordings is due out next year, but give this track a listen to see what i mean:
Amazingly, this was recorded in 1980, the year the first Maiden LP came out.
If you're interested in hearing where the signature Maiden sound came from you should give THIN LIZZY, WISHBONE ASH and AUTOMATIC FINE TUNING a listen.
They all excel in the harmony lead department and obviously influenced Harris & Co.

GORDI from Serbia released some albums back in the late 80s/early 90s. A lot of times they sound like classic 70s rock meets MOTÖRHEAD, but some songs have that certain early IRON MAIDEN vibe, if you ask me.

This here is called ´San´ and its taken from their "Pakleni Trio" album from 1981. To me, this here sounds like a lost IRON MAIDEN b-side from the DiAnno era.

Sentinel Beast sound like a speed version of Maiden on a lot of tracks, similar to Savage Grace in that way i guess.
