    Disc 1 vs Disc 2 (yeah, Travis is going to kill me)

    Sorry Travis, but I want to know what everyone thinks - which disc is better? For me it's definitely Disc 2 - it starts with three great rockers, then the deep Man of Sorrows and EOTC. On Disc 1 I adore IESF and SOL is pretty cool, but TRATB just kills the momentum. I haven't gotten into TBOS yet.

    Mastered for iTunes

    I see that there's a version of the album that's mastered for iTunes... I take it it would be more compressed than the CD version? Can anyone compare the two versions?

    Songs not meant to be played live

    I've been thinking about this for a while now, and comparing Maiden with another band that I really like on the same level, Dream Theater. While Maiden have about 40% of their discography that has never been played (or something near that number if I'm not terribly wrong), DT have played live...

    Any televised show(s) from the first leg of TFF tour?

    As the subject says, have there been any televised shows (or decent quality video bootlegs) from the first leg of The Final Frontier tour, i.e. the leg that basically consisted of 2000s material plus El Dorado?

    Newbie rush

    Is there a way to curb all these newbies (I would have written "n00bs", but l33t speak is forbidden :D) in the Iron Maiden forum? I mean, there have been 10 different speculative threads about setlists in the last month, ten more threads about favorite or least favorite songs... It's a bit...

    Who can build a mile-high tower?

    Only one man. You've guessed it - Adrian Smith.

    Steve Harris - The Clairvoyant (a book)

    Edit: I have a few copies of the book left, if anyone's interested, please PM me. Original post follows below: As someone posted something about a "Maiden studio experience" book, I'd like to post something about a book I've been working on, together with Stipe Juras (known as 'Maidencroatia'...

    Q: Jersey worn by Steve

    A friend of mine (Maidencroatia from the official forum) is selling some stuff. Among that stuff is a Virtual XI era football jersey which was worn by Steve during a gig he attended and was given to him by Steve personally (because he gave Steve a Hajduk Split FC jersey with Slaven Bilic's name...

    Anyone from Hungary here?

    I'm planning to go to the Sziget fest to see Maiden, but I'm planning to stick around for another day and take a little tour of Budapest while I'm there with my friends. So, if there's someone here who's from Budapest or knows his way around the town and the festival, I'd like to have a few...

    The Man Who Would Be King

    I just finished watching The Man Who Would Be King, a movie from 1975 starring Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Christopher Plummer. After having seen it, I'd say that there's a pretty good chance the song is related either to the movie or Rudyard Kipling's book of the same name and theme. The...

    European tour 2010

    I didn't find a topic so I created this one - an Italian tour date has just been published on the official Maiden site, it's Udine (northeast Italy), on August 17th 2010. ... cleid=1188 Maybe this should be the official European tour 2010 thread? I'm...

    Seventh Son font

    Does anyone have the font that was used for the title of Seventh Son of a Seventh Son? I've managed to find virtually all others (check this site out), but no SSoaSS... Any help? If not a font, I could also use a vectorized version of the text... Thanks!

    Blaze - Alive in Poland

    I've just seen some of the live footage from the Alive In Poland DVD, you can find it on YouTube. The drummer that played there really sucks (he was also sacked sometime after the release of the DVD), he's really sloppy and nowhere near the majestic talent and skill of Jeff Singer. As for the...
