Music video by Iron Maiden performing Wrathchild (Live At The Rainbow).
"Wrathchild" is the second track from the heavy metal band Iron Maiden's second album, Killers. It opens with a dark, lurking bass riff by Steve Harris - also the main writer of the song - before going into a short guitar solo by Dave Murray and then proceeding straight into the first verse. The song's lyrics are based from the perspective of a young man whose birth was unplanned by his parents, and decides to seek his father and never stop until he finds him. "Wrathchild" has grown to be one of the band's most famous songs since the release on Killers in 1981, still being played in live performances in the present, often as one of the first songs in the tracklist.
