    San Diego 1998, The Best Blaze performance?

    You can't fight physics. Blaze's vocal cords were never meant to stretch as much as they would've needed to for him to be able to even remotely sing songs like Hallowed Be Thy Name in original key. Hell, that song is brutal even for someone with Bruce's range. You can't "improve" upon something...

    Adrian, Janick and Dave's guitars and Steve's basses

    Yeah but if you listen to the audio, it's a mess of two solos over one another. Jan obviously just went ahead and played the solo like normal, presumably because his tech informed him he's good to go since it's the one solo he does with the Boogie. I doubt he was really thinking about whether he...

    Metallica

    There's a fair bit of it, just like there's been on just about everything they've put out since Garage Inc. (which also had some, S&M had a ton, St. Anger being "raw" didn't, but on DM even the demos had the occasional use of autotune). It is pretty noticeable in the chorus to Lux Aeterna to the...

    AMOLAD tour memories and opinions

    I would be pretty okay with them releasing the AMOLAD show that they have (I'm not actually entirely convinced the final form it took wasn't AMOLAD in full from '06 + the remaining Donington tracks as the bonus, rather than the other way around) as long as they also release the missing studio...

    Metallica

    Nearly all of Metallica's songs are about death though. Die, death and dying appear literally over a hundred times in their lyrics. Thing is though, that's 12 tracks. If they cut it down to 8 like they used to in the record days, I think the overall length would also come around to being more...

    Did he focking leave the band? FWIW I don't think Cliff's in the band anymore either...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    Senjutsu isn't really a killer opening to anything, bar maybe the album its on. In a live setting I can't see it getting played again, especially not in a spot where you'd want a high-energy tune like the encore.

    Metallica

    Kirk's already 60. He's the oldest in the band, being born in 1962 like Cliff rather than 1963 like James, Lars or Jason.

    Metallica

    They're starting sales only offering two-day tickets to begin with, the single day tickets will only be available later. A bit of a dick move if you ask me, it's blatantly just a cash grab, same with the "experiences" they're offering (and have been for years now).

    Metallica

    There's room for more weekend dates for the UK at least. I think their days of playing outside of weekends is done. This feels a lot like winding down the touring machine rather than a brave new start to a new era, going out with a gimmick and trying to sell two tickets at once. Considering the...

    Iron Maiden News, Links, and Interviews

    Didn't we actually see a version of the setlist when Davey was holding it up in a rehearsal photo? It was low quality but you could see the placement of Hallowed somewhere in the set, I forgot where exactly. TETMD is literally highlighted in that photo since it's selected in the cue list, it's...

    What isolated track of any Maiden song would interest you the most?

    Thanks to the magic of AI, CSiT isolated drums actually are a thing that exists on YouTube. Never did I ever think that this day would come since I always assumed being able to do this level of isolation to a mixed, mastered stereo track would just straight-up be impossible, but here it is. The...

    The Future Past tour 2023

    This doesn't really hold up to scrutiny. If we take SAMURAI 5 - CYBORGS 5 as given then that maps out to five Senjutsu songs, five SiT songs and five classics since they'll most definitely play 15 songs, maybe 16 but probably not. There's straight-up no room for deep cuts, that's the whole SiT...

    Bruce Dickinson

    That's real cool. Isn't the last time he's done Tears of the Dragon with Tribuzy in 2005? I'm eager to hear him do it in full live, God knows it's been too long.

    Iron Maiden News, Links, and Interviews

    I think the problem lies in that with Bruce, as of late, you're hard-pressed to just be a fan and ignore whatever his ass-backwards opinions are. Either they show up in his lyrics or he spouts off about them unprompted in an interview or he starts up the corona conspiracy rhetoric in Florida at...
