Samson was a British heavy metal band between 1977 and 2002. It was considered a part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Its first album, Survivors, received good reviews. This made the band more popular.[1] Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson was in the band before he joined Iron Maiden.[2] Dickinson went by the name "Bruce Bruce" while he was in Samson.[3] The band kept making music until 2002, when guitarist Paul Samson, who started the band, died of cancer.[4]
