    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Powerslave isn't my favourite either and while I like most of the stuff on it, I really don't listen to it thoroughly that often. However, for me, Back in the Village is actually one of the hidden gems there! The chorus is nothing spectacular, but other than that, I love the fierce and intense...

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

    I definitely agree with the above posts about the current way to open the show being very... well, Maiden. I also understand and somewhat agree with the criticism around slowed down Aces High and how Senjutsu section of the show might not be the most bombastic and crowd pleasing way to open the...

    Mistake or not, I loved Senjutsu as opening track. I get the criticism, but I don't see where they'd put the Senjutsu realm if not at the beginning. Given everything, I still think it's an ok compromise. :)

    Senjutsu - Eight Months Later

    Still not capable to give an exact ranking list, but I listened to the album yesterday during a long walk late in the evening and I still loved it. For some reason, to me it's magic hasn't worn off at all. :) It's not quite as firmly among my very favourite Iron Maiden albums like A Matter of...

    Nicko's drum kits over the years

    Yes it has! It has those smoky, frozen Eddies. You can probably see a few shots of it in this video, for example. Not the clearest of designs, but they're definitely there. :)

    Ah, I actually have the ticket (purchased at the first day of general sale in 2019 :D); it's everything else that's little bit problematic. I greatly appreciate the thought anyway! Cheers Yep, but I've been holding mine since 2019, heh!

    (sorry for mumbling about Maiden in the middle of a KISS debate!) I'm pondering the possibility of being able to see Maiden in Gothenburg, after all. I could possibly make it. It'd be quick trip with several hours of quality time at the airport activity included, but... I'm tempted. I'll know...

    Well, Revelations is quite integral part of the LOTB thing and in my opinion, pretty much the best way to introduce the Cathedral set. It's also quite comfortable for Bruce. Of course I also understand wishes for more variation. Given that the "themes" were loose to begin with, and even more...

    Ah, didn't mean to disparage your effort! You've done great work there and have indeed covered every tour and their stage settings. I merely meant that there aren't actual high-res "scans" or other kind of archives (official or otherwise) widely available of all the backdrop art thorough the years.

    A fan who was in yesterday's show made an interesting observation on Instagram about the colour shading in The Trooper backdrop See left side, next to Eddie's shoulder. Slava Ukraini. ...then again, it's the same one that has been used quite a lot of times, but uhm. Anyway!

    Ah, I wasn't there myself, but the show started around 9PM, so... Roughly 9:15PM, I believe.

    Okay! Here's even more thoughts about last night in Riga. Apologies in advance, as this is a long report full of fanboying. Naturally, as this was a very last-minute decision and my first Maiden show since 2018 AND possibly the only one I'm going to see this year, I might be less critical than...

    Okay, back at the hotel to catch one, two or three hours of sleep before getting to the airport. So, more detailed commentary coming later on, but here's some quick thoughts: - The whole band was on fire. Nicko's drum sound was particularly powerful (as it was in 2018 when I saw them) and it...

    Spontaneous decision has been made. I'm going to Riga tomorrow. Senjutsu. The Writing on the Wall. Stratego. Revelations. Blood Brothers. Sign of the Cross. Flight of Icarus. These alone make the set worth all the time and effort. I'M SO HAPPY!

    Magazine scans about 'Fear Of The Dark'.

    Thanks! It was a good read. Mostly nothing new, but I liked the perspective around the uhm... musical ambitions on FOTD. Good summary of that period of time, overall. Cheers!
