    Empire Of The Clouds

    I live quite close to the sheds where the R101 was built. In a previous thread, I told people that my wife’s grandparents are buried in the same churchyard that is mentioned in the song (we also got married at the church) For those who are interested, the area surrounding the sheds is now being...

    Maiden studio album shoot-out, Part 4

    Two maligned albums. Two experimental albums. I think they are both excellent. TXF pips but only just.

    Flight of Icarus

    It’s such a shame that we didn’t get to see Bruce sing this song with Maiden when he was at the peak of his vocal power. This is such a great vocal performance.

    Maiden studio album shoot-out, Part 2

    Dance of Death. I really like Book of Souls but I would never put on disc 2 if it wasn’t for Shadow of the Valley. Dance of Death has lots of variety and it keeps my attention all the way through.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    What a show! Some thoughts 1. All the Senjutsu songs worked really well live but they were not the best choice to open the show for a festival. 2. Revelations, Blood Brothers and Sign of the Cross make up one hell of a trio! 3. Bruce’s voice was on point most of the time. He struggled on some...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    They are just setting up Maiden now. Deftones were a chore to sit through. Went to watch a bit of Megadeth instead.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    My 7 month old is off to nanny’s. Getting ready for the 1 1/2 drive to Donnignton. If anyone sees a balding 33 year old in the audience with a Coming Home T shirt, that’ll be me! Scream for me Donnigton!

    Who's Going To Download 2022 (meet up)?

    All packed and ready to drive up tomorrow. Which Maiden album do I blast on the way up to get me pumped up?

    Brave New World - Album

    I wore this VHS to death before upgrading to DVD. Still my favourite Maiden album. The only thing that bums me out is that the DVD does not have a 2.0 mix.

    Who's Going To Download 2022 (meet up)?

    I’m getting pumped now. My first Maiden gig was Reading 05 and I have never seen them at another festival until this Download.

    If I were in his position, I wouldn’t play much outside of Maiden! He obviously gets his creative fix from the band and chooses peruse other hobbies. Not everyone can be as into writing/projects as Bruce, Steve and Adrian.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    I miss how heavy the song was from that era. The Rock in Rio version is so good.

    Brave New World - Album

    It was a good day. I got it for my 12th birthday. Although I got it a few days later. Nice to share a birthday with this album!

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    True and I am glad that I saw them on that tour. I would still stand by my comment though. I think tonight showed they are not afraid to be a little risky with choices.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    I think it is a ballsy setlist. Opening with 3 new songs, two songs from arguably their least popular albums and not having many ‘classics’ early on.

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST WORLD TOUR 2022 - **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

    Good crowd participation and easier on Bruce’s voice.

    which Maiden song reveals the worst difference compared studio version <-> live version?

    The Legacy is one that springs to mind. The ending just wasn’t as good live and it didn’t quite have the same atmosphere. I thought it was quite a ballsy song to do live (the whole album was to be fair!) On the flip side, The Red and the Black came to life in the live environment. The...

    Interesting choices so far. I’m glad I’ll get to see Sign of the Cross and Icarus again. Hopefully they won’t go!
