    #1 Record? Did you do your duty?

    It's mind blowing how record sales have fallen so much over the years. Obviously they're not as popular as they once were and we're in a radically different time but you'd think sales wouldn't be as low as they are. I suppose sales could be worse! And I'm really glad to see them so high in the...

    Did any of the songs from The Book Of Souls enter your top 10 maiden songs list?

    I don't really have a top 10 list but Book Of Souls would probably be in there. Such a killer song. Red and Black, and Eternity are killer too!

    The Red And The Black

    Official Lyrics: The morals of life and the perils of death Take the wrong way out running out of breath Meet my match in the afterlife Suppress the demons that plague the night A tortured mind is a safe place to go But the truth lurks down in the dark below Step inside my inquisitive mind Are...

    Official Lyrics: Sacrifices buried with kings Accompany them on a journey with no end To an afterlife that’s rich with fruit of all the gods And to face the demons Of their underworld haunts The sentient is sent to seek out all the truth A flight to earth that is a given from his birth To rise...

    Tears Of A Clown

    Official Lyrics: All alone in a crowded room He tries to force a smile The smile it beamed or so it seemed But never reached the eyes, disguise Masquerading as the funny man do they despise The false smile maketh of the man Glass empty or half full Try to make some sense or sorrows drown All...

    The Man Of Sorrows

    Official Lyrics: Winter softly falling to the ground Calmly waiting don’t you hear a sound When the world has fallen to the depths below Where the future’s open and the fear has grown And the path to follow to the great unknown Where the dark has fallen and the seed is sown In the selfish...

    "The Book of Souls" - Official pre-release thread (CONTAINS ALBUM SPOILERS)

    I'm a member over at the Steve Hoffman forums where there's tons of "audiophiles" so sound quality is always discussed at great length. So far a couple guys have received their vinyl and both said it sounds great. Posts 755 and 773...

    "The Book of Souls" - Official pre-release thread (CONTAINS ALBUM SPOILERS)

    Well Blabbermouth gave BoS a 9.5/10 and praise BNW in the review, yet they gave BNW a 5/10. Go figure.
