    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    It's the newspaper from the Be Quick or Be Dead single cover. Nice touch

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    My criticism would be that the mix of the rhythm guitars lacks clarity and the bass could be a tad more prominent. But yes, it's easily the best sounding of Shirley's tenure. Not a patch on the sound of the 80s albums though (debut and Piece of Mind excepted).

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I love Steve and agree that his stubbornness is often a virtue. However I don't think I have ever enjoyed his production choices. They simply haven't sounded as good as they ought to since he started co-producing with Martin Birch in the 90s. Up until that point every album sounded slightly...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I would be massively surprised if they didn't just bang out the whole album in two or three weeks, use all Bruce's guide vocal takes instead of doing it properly, get Kevin Shirley to mix it until it sounded half-finished, ignore Adrian's pleas to add some reverb to things to actually make it...

    Zero chance of this here. As if they'd go to all this trouble for one song...

    Yeah, but nothing at all like this. I'm just surprised so many people claiming to be fans can't spot that that's not Bruce Dickinson from a hundred yards away...

    The production is all wrong. As if Nicko's snare would ever sound like that...

    It sounds like Iron Maiden if they had zero good ideas, a different singer and even worse production

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2017 Thread (Warning: Spoilers Within)

    Please!! Not only is it a shit song, it also destroys Bruce's voice for the rest of the gig...

    2017 Tour Announcement on Friday!

    Is it poor forum etiquette to ask if anyone has spare presale codes?

    The Problem with the X-Factor?

    Are you mental? Killers sounds absolutely fucking amazing!

    The Problem with the X-Factor?

    It's both. And Shirley should take more of the blame because he's billed as the producer. He needs to fucking grow a pair and tell Steve when he's wrong instead of just letting him rule the roost... Martin Birch would never have stood for it.

    Reflecting on 2015 as a Maiden fan

    Disappointing year for me. I mean, I was happy that Bruce recovered but somehow I never had any doubt that he would. And the wait for the album took so long, and all the pre-release reviews and interviews got me really excited for it, then it turned out to be (in my opinion) the dullest Iron...
