    Has Maiden's online shop lost their minds?

    I recently made my first purchase on their online store since covid started and I got charged $67 USD to ship 3 t-shirts to the USA.... Last time I ordered, shipping ran me $13 to ship from UK to USA for shirts.... I really wanted the new FC shirt and a SIT tee and the shipping cost more than...

    Great production, poor live sound

    Metal is a genre that usually amazes live more than the studio versions but it's not always the case. So, we know as Maiden fans that Somewhere in Time and likely Seventh Son are the best productions in terms of studio quality that the band have ever done but live, it's another story...

    Comparing SIT to SSOASS

    Ok. Most everyone I know who likes one of these albums also likes the other close by. They share many elements like POM and PS do... For starters, the production on these 2 albums is far superior to anything they have done. Somewhere in Time was so well produced that they could never pull off...

    Is Nicko ok?

    Rock n Roll ribs cancelled their block party on December 8th due to health issues. They said it wasn't life threatening but December 8th is a whole month off and they cancelled it for a health reason for him.... Their facebook page lit up with this

    The REAL reason Bring your daughter to the slaughter was a #1 song

    So it may seem odd that this song hit number one on the charts but thanks to an analyst at forbes magazine, the mystery has been explained and may also explain other singles and album charting positions...

    Different takes on Maiden songs

    So there are LOADS of cover bands trying to replicate the band in most ways. I thought it'd be fun to hear and see some different takes on some of their songs. I'll start with a few great and amusing ones for Fear of the Dark

    Great songs with rubbish music videos

    Ok, let's face it. The 80s had the best music but arguably some of the worst video productions as well. I'll kick things off with one of my favorite Yngwie Malmsteen tunes....

    Nicko and his jags

    I have personally met him at his rib shack a few times but never seen the blue one. He has a newer 4 door that he drives there.... Pretty cool when you figure his home is not some ostentatious palace like American metal bands homes are. Still humble, still down to earth, still fun and joyful...

    It's gotta be tough being Dave Murray

    I got to thinking this morning listening to The Thin Line Between Love and Hate, gosh it must blow to write songs and then never get to play them..... Dave's songs have a history of being played only briefly or never at all... that's gotta suck for a songwriter and a good one at that. (Between...

    Singles, classics, and the focus of set lists

    So I have been thinking.... Many refer to frequently played songs as classics.... when I look at these so called "classics", one thing becomes apparent. They were mostly all singles. None of them seem to be songs that were not a single. What makes Maiden choose a single over other songs on the...

    The Best Chorus in Metal?

    What do you think is worthy of being crowned the best Chorus in the world of metal? A compilation of guitar work, vocals and possibly masterful lyrics... This is my vote here. Would love to see others.. Hard to beat this IMO though
