    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I think it's only a very natural reaction. Your relationship with Maiden resembles that of a family and disappointment towards someone you rely on hits harder. The dynamic is strange however, because in this relationship, there's only givers (the band) and takers (fans) and the band can't put...

    Ahh it's like waiting to be released from prison (which I don't really have any experience in). I expect the CD to arrive in the mail in the next three hours but I can see the play button on Spotify in front of me. Tranquility. Endurance. Patience.

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Leak not necessary! They should have posted a pic of the CD instead because I've been zooming in hard on this one, making my own analog copy with a needle and a Frisbee! Ha! Well, it's missing half of it but you'll hear where everything is going.

    Really excited about the opening as well, but I'm wondering what those two reviewers was actually trying to reference, because I have a hard time combining Tool to industrial. You think he was referring to the small interludes between proper Tool songs, you know, the ones we always skip?

    Funny you should say that! Due to work, I haven't had the time to listen to Stratego much today, like I did yesterday, but every time it enters my mind, my brain blends it together with Silent Planet just before the chorus. On repeated listens, I have started to pay more attention to the drum...

    It sounds like something from FOTD, and I don't mind that at all. I'm still grasping for what the chorus reminds me of. Not Maiden or even metal I think, it's some other song from way back.

    My God what a nice, thick and punchy mix musically. Vocal mix is a minor setback only. The track is really fucking great!

    What are your plans for your first Senjutsu "listening party"?

    Edit: Interesting! Sounds like you work on a freight ship?

    What are your plans for your first Senjutsu "listening party"?

    As a family father of two I know I won't get the peace I need during the day so I will probably wait for everyone to go to bed, pour a glass of my favorite Italian red wine and consume this beast alone on my headphones. Hopefully I've managed to grab a physical copy by then, but that's just for...

    What are your plans for your first Senjutsu "listening party"?

    I'm sure all of you have already pictured yourself listening to Senjutsu for the very first time and maybe you already have a ritual for a big event like this or just take it as it comes. Please share your plans for your first playthrough: do you listen all by yourself in a dark room or are you...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I would definately say this is a positive review. The criticism mostly resembles what people on this forum sometimes criticize Maiden (well Steve) for, like repetition and length. The fact that he misspelled Senjutsu throughout the whole thing is only telling he's just a mortal reviewer and fan...

    There are apps for making the whole thing much easier. Snap a picture and let the app both read and translate the thing.

    My God SOLD! I've only read the first section about Senjutsu it's everything I have ever wanted in my life. This sounds like so poignant and serious. I understand now why all three seemed to be going through existential crisis in the studio video. I. CAN. NOT. WAIT!

    Oh they seem very enthusiastic! It's like they can't keep themselves from exploding in enjoyment! /s I don't know, but it's like they read our concerns for "keeping things quiet" and the marketing team trying to scramble things from the bottom drawer. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing them...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Just wanted to say that Maiden got some exposure on the biggest TV morning show in Sweden today. They talked about the political messages in TWOTW and showed a clip from it and briefly mentioned the new album. Nice to see mainstream media hopping onto the train as well.
