    Interesting facts about Maiden on YouTube

    It's a shame you can only adjust it for the last 12 months. I'd love to see what the channels lifespan statistics are.

    The way I see it, if British Lion can tour then so can Smith/Kotzen. Hopefully they can hit the road soon.

    Please post reviews and thoughts on Senjutsu here - WARNING! SPOILERS inside!

    Since Steve hasn't given much or any interviews about the album I'm skeptical if this question will ever be answered.

    They appear to be one of those bands who don't sell massive amounts of records but can do huge tours. Their last tour was mostly arenas. I doubt Smith/Kotzen could do such big venues on their own. Speaking of which, when are we getting a Smith/Kotzen tour?

    Not to derail the thread further but this isn't the whole truth. Smith/Kotzen charted at #10 in the US album only charts which doesn't include streaming. However, it seems to have missed the Billboard 200 completely according to wiki at least. I can't find solid information on where it ended...

    Yes, agreed. This thread seems to bring out the worst in folk. Lots of triggered and salty replies because someone dares have an opinion. Back on topic, we should discover how Senjutsu did in its second week by tomorrow. I reckon it'll hang in the top ten for one more week. Somewhere between...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    CDs can exceed 79 minutes but it's not recommended. It causes problems with some players, skipping etc.

    Problem on disc 2 (CD)

    At the end of the day the problem is almost certainly down to either clipping at the mixing stage or clipping at the mastering stage. Either way it isn't a good look. On the other hand a few seconds of clipping isn't that bad considering Metallica released a whole album's worth of it.

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I was born on the year of Killers and Bruce joining the band.

    Problem on disc 2 (CD)

    It can depend. The newer lacquers they use are usually better quality but can still cause inconsistencies. My experience is mostly anecdotal. I have the Maiden England picture disc which was noisy all hell even on the first listen. In the end I had to give it a bath just to mitigate the sound.

    Problem on disc 2 (CD)

    Coloured vinyl is noisier than standard black. Picture discs are the worst for it.

    Senjutsu

    It's tied with Hell On Earth as the best song on the album and will make an epic set opener. I just love the Toolesque rhythm to it.

    Problem on disc 2 (CD)

    I noticed crackling on the Vinyl version (side 4 DOTC) and put it down to possible dust on the record. I gave it a clean afterwards but haven't played that side again. After reading this of course it could well be clipping at the mixing stage. I doubt the vinyl would have been mastered so loud...

    The MAIDEN Years: 2018/19/20/21/22/ad infinitum (Rock in Rio and Nights of the Dead)

    NOTD is one of the few live albums I don't own a physical copy of (the others are ARLDO and some of the rarer stuff like BOH and MJ). I just find it unlistenable. It's not just the muddy sound and Bruce's knackered voice, it's mainly the awful, awful fake crowd noise which sounds like someone...

    * Makes several posts calling me wrong Me - "OK here's some proof I'm not." "Nope, not reading that." If you're having difficulty understanding the concept that artists can exist on the same or similar level as other artists not neccesarily meaning that they play exactly the same size of shows...

    It's actually quite difficult to get accurate numbers on who the biggest touring acts or tours per year are. If you look at Wikipedia, Maiden appear nowhere on the top acts of all time or per decade. Apparently you can get better industry figures from Boxscore but you've got to subscribe to...

    All of those bands are arena/festival headliners. Heck, Slipknot even have their very own festival in the states. Maybe if you don't narrow your view to America only you'd know this. But if you stick to America only, Leppard are at least the equal of Maiden there. They're sold many times the...
