Quotes: Song Style Shift

"We've done lots of mellow intros, but we've never managed to really stay mellow throughout the whole song."
— Steve Harris of Iron Maiden

"We wanted the stops to be pin-drop silent before exploding. If we had a beautiful melody, we'd throw a fucking string quartet in there. So we did everything we could to really magnify all those elements and that was fun. Usually you.have a few parameters you're afraid to pass but, this time, there was no fear of going too far.""
Dave Grohl on exploiting the trope in Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
