    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    They broke every record in Greece in the LOTB tour selling out 36.000 (with over 40.000 people on the open area the concert was performed) tickets easily beating their own previous best (around 26.000 in the SBIT tour) or any other high profile metal concert (previous record holder was Sabbath...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I love many short songs , post-reunion. “Fallen angel”, “wicker man”, “rainmaker”, “Montsegur”, “If eternity could fail” (take out the intro and it is a typical short song), “death or glory”, “tears of a clown” , “ghost of the navigator” (does this count or is it too long?) , “Mother Of Mercy”...

    No both Maiden and Metallica are mega millionaires.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    That proposed tour makes zero sense. Why would Maiden take Priest when they can fill big arenas (in the U.S) and football stadiums (everywhere else) on their own ? Having bands like testament or even Obituary as support kind of makes sense, the Judas Priest part doesn’t.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    They were going to tour with Megadeth in the U.S, before Dickinson got sick, for the TBOS tour so this rumor actually makes sense.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I love all the reunion albums so I will definitely like the next one. They have simply been on the right path since their reunion, at least when it comes to what I want to listen from Iron Maiden.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    The guy ruined a masterpiece, the x-factor, with his horrible production, he isn’t perfect.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Yeah they messed up cause they lost much of their fanbase worldwide and British charts aren’t the only measuring stick. The downgrade in popularity from 7th to NPFTD was huge. As for how I know Smith’s opinion it is obvious that he wants more polished sounding albums, I think he has vaguely...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    If Maiden tried something like what Priest did with firepower, in terms of sound, their album would go straight to n.1 everywhere including the U.S. They should really take Smith’s opinion seriously just like they should have done when he insisted on staying on the 7th son path instead of doing...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I don’t see how the horrible NPFTD is “back to the roots”, back to the roots would be something like killers or TNOFTB. Silly rock songs like “hooks in you”, “bring your daughter”, “holy smoke” and so on were never maiden’s roots. Anyway there’s zero chance they will ever make an album like...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I wonder if they would something similar to what they did before TFF chasing the elusive n.1 in the u.s billboard. Go in the studio in the beginning of 2019 , record the new album and then bring the legacy tour in the U.S with the addition of a new song just to have the tour serve as a pseudo...

    Vocalists that were auditioned for Bruce Dickinson's replacement in 1993

    Kiske would have been the best by far. Amazing singer (soft voice my ass) could hit all the high notes with ease (and actually his English accent was out of this world even when he was 17 and made the first album with Helloween), amazing frontman at that time with a really commanding stage...

    Legacy of the Beast Tour 2018 - CONTAINS SPOILERS

    The sound on rockwave was jaw-dropping, possibly the best sound I have ever listened to any metal concert I have gone, and I have been going to metal concerts (big and small) since 1989. A true juggernaut of a sound.

    Legacy of the Beast Tour 2018 - CONTAINS SPOILERS

    Haven’t posted here for ages and just dropped by to say that the 36.000 number the promoter gave to the band at rockwave festival was bullshit. There were more than 40.000 people in the gig with the promoter doing tricks to save some tax money and the place was overpacked to the max and it is a...

    What's the matter with FOTD?

    "Angel of Death " doesn't say that "deep down there's no other way" for Mengele's actions . "Master of Puppets" is a pussy song by a pussy band that understood exactly what teenage americans wanted to listen to , harmless "anti-war" crap . Most metal bands don't have the balls to write true...

    What's the matter with FOTD?

    It actually does . They were stripping Iraq off its military forces for 12 years and then made the attack , in Gulf war 2, with no justification whatsoever , the infamous chemical weapons of Sadam . They were fighting the islaming terror by attacking a country that had an anti-islamic regime ...

    What's the matter with FOTD?

    Nope, they actually justify the U.S first attack in Iraq that eventually led to the U.S occupying most of the middle east . Sadam , the U.S ally during the Iraq/Iran war in the eighties , had "a reign of terror, corruption that must end and deep down we know there's no other way (than to...

    Your First Iron Maiden Album/Experience?

    Listening to "Piece of Mind" in November 1983 at a friend's house , whose older brother was a metalhead , and being blown away at the innocent age of nine . Not only that but i loved how scary everything about that album was, the cover, the look of the band's members' faces in the inside photo...
