Run Silent Run Deep is a track from the album No Prayer for the Dying, the eighth studio album by Iron Maiden. Released in October 1990.
Run Silent Run Deep was written by Steve Harris and Bruce Dickinson.
Based on the classic novel by Edward L. Beach and the 1958 film starring Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster, this song is about WWII submarine warfare in the Pacific. It’s a brilliant song, which does a good job of recreating the mood of suspense and excitement of the film.
Run Silent Run Deep, to date has never been played live. Hopefully this will change in the up coming tours.
The album departed from the keyboard- and synthesiser-saturated progressive rock direction of the band’s two previous studio outings (1986’s Somewhere in Time and 1988’s Seventh Son of a Seventh Son) in favour of a more “stripped down,” straightforward style, reminiscent of the band’s earlier material,] which ushered in a change of vocal style for Bruce Dickinson from the operatic sound of the 1980s to a raspier way of singing. In addition, Michael Kenney, who had played keyboards on tour for the band, played keyboards on the album, replacing Harris and Adrian Smith from previous albums.
Other lessons tracks from the album include the number 1 hit Bring Your Daughter..
