    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I agree. My new colleague is interested in Metal, but doesn't know anything, and would like me to give an introductory presentation. I will talk about the NWOBHM and also play "The Parchment" and "Hell on Earth" to show how one of the NWOBHM bands is still creative in 2021 and has matured in...

    Bruce also says the Legacy of the Beast shows will likely open with the first three songs of Senjutsu.

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I want a new edition of the Senjutsu booklet without acknowledgment to Novax Đoković. He is either lying about testing positive for COVID on 16 Dec or it’s true and he still attended events on 17 and 18 Dec. What a piece of work.

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I agree. In their 17th studio album, after 41 years, Maiden develops innovative song arrangements and coherently constructed ones, too. That bothers me with some progressive bands that have sections in their songs which have nothing to do with each other. They don't connect them or give them a...

    Stratego

    Totally forgettable elevator music. If they really think they have made an Iron Maiden song better - hahaha.

    Maybe he wanted to be polite and is honest now in this interview? But that is just speculation obviously.

    2021-2022 Magazine scans and clippings

    I bought the German "Hardline" magazine. It contains an interesting interview with Adrian. He compares Martin Birch and Kevin Shirley and tells us what he thinks about reports from the studio work for the fans. Did you realize that Adrian doesn't know all Iron Maiden songs? This is my...

    Bruce nasty to fans??

    I have never tried myself which of the three possibilities would occur, but I have consulted my magazines. The Rock Hard editorial in fact says that he was unfriendly during the interview. They even mock him by calling him Bruce "Don't bug me" Dickinson.

    Steve Harris

    British Lion is now going to play in a small venue in my city in July 2022. The last time I went there, you had to prove you were either vaccinated, recovered or tested (PCR). I wouldn't rule out that being changed to vaccinated or recovered in the coming months though. Steve's acknowledgement...

    It is possible that the songs evolve when the band plays them live. Patience is no sin, I will wait for that and see if they do. By the way, Bruce said that Steve had come to the studio with concepts for his songs ready and had been very afraid that someone might change something about them.

    For me, there is only one version, that of the artists, Iron Maiden. So it is indeed a waste of time in my opinion. That’s true, it’s an improvement exclusively for you. I admire Adrian’s solo in “Darkest Hour” so much and you did’t even include the song. And that’s only the most blatant example.

    There were even billboards announcing the album in my city and I found many reviews in magazines and newspapers. It was actually all more than I had expected.

    Hell On Earth

    I find the intros and outros in Maiden songs important, too. Here, the intro represents an innocent child for me who doesn’t yet know anything of the terrible in the world, but will soon experience it. The outro is peaceful again, because at the end of their life, they are going to the “other...

    Hell On Earth

    I don't even see it that way. It's hard to describe because I can't think of how to explain it with music theory, it's just associations. There is also something (heart)broken in the music, but confident and uplifting. It makes me think of a person who has seen a lot of shit but is still strong...

    I love the intros and outros. Without them, they would not be Iron Maiden songs with the emotional atmosphere that the band wanted to set. My highlight: Hell on Earth

    To kill some time I translated a "Rockmagazine" review from German into English. I would like to be the reviewer's neighbor. 9.5/10 I translated "Volksmusik" as "folk music" but the reviewer probably specifically means tradional German "Volksmusik", I am not sure.

    I posted another review in the "Senjutsu" thread. Should I add it here as well? PS: The 3.5/7 review in Metal Hammer Germany has nothing to do with Martin Popoff.
