    Iron Maiden News, Links, and Interviews

    Yeah I do love the instrumental section of Weekend Warrior, the rest of it is a bit sub-par.

    which Maiden song that hasn't been played live yet would you like a live version of?

    Obviously quite a predictable choice, but number one for me would be Alexander the Great. Other than that, I think, The Fugitive would be a great number live.

    The Number of the Beast: Album Discussion

    I did a video review of the album, which, if you wish, you can watch on the old YouTube.

    Senjutsu's album review (song by song and overall)

    Well I decided to start doing album reviews on my bands YouTube channel. Obviously a big part of the reason is to hopefully draw some people to the page and maybe have them check out my band, I'm not going to deny that. But I did also fancy doing reviews of albums I own and rating them, and...

    which parts from TNOTB would make a good DiAnno performance?

    I think Invaders is the song from NOTB that sounds most inline with what they were doing on Killers, so reckon it would definitely work.

    Blaze Bayley

    I went to a rather sparsly populated Glasgow gig on the Blood on Belief tour. Definitely had a new guitarist to the band as he spent a lot of time nipping to the back of the stage to consult his notes on how the songs went.

    what Maiden song parts do you think sound live much better than on the original album?

    Hallowed Be Thy Name is one for me. I find the dynamics of the song to be much better on LAD than on NOTB. The studio version, I think the intro is too fast, then after the intro it is too slow. For me I think that loses the impact of the main part, as it comes in slower and thus seems less...

    Is it worth joining the fanclub?

    Just let my membership lapse, for me I was paying for a magazine and a t-shirt, with access to the forum was a bonus that I would occasionally use. With the magazine going digital and no t-shirt, it really doesn’t seem worth being a member.

    what do you think of the upcoming anniversary TNOTB cassette release?

    Seems a rather low key way to celebrate the 40th Anniversary. I've no interest in purchasing new cassettes, but to be honest, as I have a couple of copies of the album on CD plus a vinyl version from when I got into the band back in the early 90s. I have no need for another copy, whatever the...

    the better DiAnno album

    For me, Killers is the better album, but Iron Maiden has the best song of the two in, Phantom of the Opera.

    My band, Vantage Point, are releasing a new album, On Target, in January. Ahead of it we have just put out a new single, End of the Line, which you can listen to on the digital platform of your choice. If you do give it a listen on Spotify and think it is alright, then do give us a follow there...

    Status Quo

    Went to the re-union gigs in 2013 & 2014 suspecting that I would like them more than previous Quo gigs, just because they were playing a set of songs from the 70s, which is of course when they released their best material. But I was really surprised at how much better they sounded with Lancaster...
