    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Been digesting for a week now, am I the only one who thinks the title track is the weakest song? DOFP was my original weakest but it has grown on me, Senjutsu is my least fave and will be a poor concert opener if they go their usual route with that. WOTW and Stratego, i liked when released, but...

    Legacy Of The Beast Post-Pandemic Leg

    As has been said, there is still no certainty the Legacy shows will go ahead in 2022. However, with the new record coming, I'd imagine if the Legacy shows get cancelled again then the 3rd leg will be completely abandoned this time. There's a small possibility they could switch a couple of new...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I feel that a mixture of material is preferable, the AMOLAD show was my least favourite Maiden show. Would like to see some done to death classics switched out, currently The Trooper and 2M2M, they can come back in future. Would i would really like is a couple of rotating spots for new songs...

    What songs/albums have you changed your mind the most drastically about, since you started listening to IM?

    Great thread, interesting to hear the apathy from some towards the post-Blaze era cos, for me, the strong material late in Maiden's career really elevates the band to my 2nd fave of all time. Also interestingly, despite the love from others earlier in the thread, SSOASS is probably the album...

    Rock in Rio 2021 announced (possible album tour)

    This reeks of a Give Me Ed style tour I reckon. North America in Aug 21 through to select South American shows culminating in Rio on 24th Sept 21. Setlist same as legacy with 2 or 3 songs dropped out, 1 brand new song and 2 changed songs swapped in. New album released late Sept or early Oct...

    Nights of the Dead, Legacy of the Beast: Live in Mexico City (new live album)

    Yes, Tony Newton has a lot to answer for here. The soft spots are fine, the solo sounds aren't great but not terrible, but, by gum, the rest of the time the drums just drown the rest out. I'm gutted.

    Nights of the Dead, Legacy of the Beast: Live in Mexico City (new live album)

    I am generally irritated by people complaining about the sound of every release by their favourite band I am very disappointed by this. Disappointed that Nicko's drums bury everything, tho luckily he's playing his ass off. Hard to believe anything could sound this bad, what, 8 or 9 yrs after En...

    Future Legacy Of The Beast 2 Tour (2022)

    No need for it obviously, other than the themed sections of the show was a good idea employed at long last. They could call it something else but I think it's a great idea for the history tours to use themes. For so long they've been picking songs that don't often match a general theme.

    Future Legacy Of The Beast 2 Tour (2022)

    I've enjoyed the themes that the band have employed for this LOTB tour and it got me thinking about themes for the next possible Legacy tour (after the next album and tour obviously). Some alternative themes could be interesting. I've tried to keep it fairly realistic with a couple of the...

    Album Of Blaze Material With Bruce Singing

    Always wondered if an album of the better Blaze songs would hold up better with Bruce redoing the vocals? I'd go for something like this :- 1. Futureal 2. Lord Of The Flies 3. Lightning Strikes Twice 4. Look For The Truth 5. Two Worlds Collide 6. Blood On The Worlds Hands 7. Man On The Edge...

    TBOS Tour Predictions

    A fair point, they could always play 2 Mins in the encore and do Evil 3rd

    Book Of Souls: Rate each song out of 10, give an overall rating!

    1. IESF 9/10 (phenomenal opener) 2. SOL 8/10 (good solid short rocker) 3. TGU 7.5/10 (I like it but feel I still need to get into it more) 4. RATB 9/10 (awesome riffage) 5. WTRRD 8/10 (another good short solid rocker) 6. TBOS 9.5/10 (my 2nd favourite song on the album) 7. DOG 8/10...

    TBOS Tour Predictions

    My own personal prediction based on what we've heard from the band, Empire looks unlikely and is probably too long, Tears while different and a band favourite is maybe not an obvious live song. This added in with the usual classics and one surprise that will probably not be that huge a surprise...

    Your First Maiden Gig ?

    Glasgow SECC 1993, think it was the May, not only my first Maiden gig but my first ever gig. I was 15, The Almighty supported and were also tremendous. There was a slight air of disappointment to the gig cos Bruce had already announced he was leaving at that point but was still a great show. I...

    How do you guys feel about the newer Maiden albums?

    I love modern Maiden, Brave New World would be in my top 5 Maiden albums and Final Frontier not far outside the top 5. AMOLAD is the only disappointing modern Maiden record for me, too devoid of melody and feels musically forced and pieced together in places. I see Dance Of Death get a bit of...
