    Guitar Solos - The Book of Souls

    Adrian's second solo on TRATB could well be his best ever. Move over SIASL !

    Reflecting on 2015 as a Maiden fan

    Haha. I didn't need Google for Valente. As well as being obsessed with all things Maiden, I am a long-suffering Everton season ticket holder !

    Most favorite song from The Book Of Souls

    I can't separate TRATB, TBOS and EOTC. The inspirational instrumental sections of TRATB have a very similar groove to the instrumental and lengthy fade out on Starship Trooper off the classic Yes Album, without really sounding much like it. Probably sounds weird but I know what I mean !

    TBOS Tour Predictions

    I'd wager they will play either These Colours Don't Run or Benjamin Breeg. As for this 'classic' that Bruce said they never play live and will surprise us all...To Tame A Land would be my guess. Would be ecstatic with this or CSIT but perhaps wishful thinking on my part

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2016 Thread (Warning: Spoilers within!)

    It's about time Maiden played Liverpool Echo Arena. Last time they played Liverpool was on the Inter City tour in 1990 after the release of NPFTD.

    Where do you see Iron Maiden going after TBOS ?

    I think TBOS will be the final studio album and the forthcoming tour will be the penultimate, before finishing off with a huge farewell tour. Perhaps performing one song off each studio album. Hopefully many more documentary/history/concert DVDs to be released though as well as live archives...

    How do you guys feel about the newer Maiden albums?

    I reckon the last 4 albums stand up remarkably well with the first 7. I'm not one to bash 90s Maiden but NPFTD, FotD, TXF and VXI are not in the same league as the 11 that bookend them.

    What do you think is Maiden's most aggressive/energetic song?

    I reckon Montsegur and Fallen Angel fit right in with the songs on Powerslave.
