    Rank the "Single" songs.

    I'm trying to summarize the overall relation of both qualities. In a way, the key factor here is - highly debatable as it is - essentiality. The first two "tiers" being songs with unquestionable, widely acknowledged classic, hit and/or cult status - that's why Sanctuary, for example, is there...

    Rank the "Single" songs.

    I'm not much into straightforward rankings and whatnot, but as far as Iron Maiden singles go, I'd categorize and "rank" their status & quality value (not including live/video/etc. singles) like this: GOLD TIER - The Biggest & Greatest Hits Run to the Hills The Number of the Beast The Trooper...

    General album artwork appreciation

    I didn't really think about this when I saw the topic title, but that is very effective cover indeed. Often overlooked, but when I saw it here along with the thoughts summed up above, I probably look at it in the new light. Granted, I've always liked the use of colours in it, as with most of the...

    Legacy Of The Beast 2021

    I'm also going to the Ullevi show, so it definitely seems to have rather good attendance from here. :P

    Legacy Of The Beast 2021

    2025. November. Maiden has just announced third leg of The Legacy of the Beast II: Saints & Sinners tour for summer 2026, which will be their first with touring drummer Laz. Meanwhile people at forum.maidenfans.com are utterly disappointed for another cabaret tour and the band sitting on...

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    I kind of see your point, but another point raised quite many times here around this topic is still valid: people have tickets for LEGACY show. Promoters booked them to do a LEGACY show. They sold the product and still try to deliver it as marketed and promised. I see your frustration, but then...

    Legacy Of The Beast 2021

    I believe that their talk after BNW tour and during DOD days about doing a bit lighter tours might've beefed up those speculations. :D I remember various interviews and other sources from those days mentioning how they'll start doing smaller tours and all, but suddenly, in 15 years, they ended...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Yeah! I was just looking for some straightforward and undeniable band member quote for a fellow fan, who isn't too convinced about The Album #17 being more or less done. :D Regardless, that's a great summary there - Thanks!

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Hi folks! Tried to search, but to make it sure... Was there actually some kind of confirmation by Adrian that the album is indeed recorded, or was it something like his wife of guitar tech hinting towards that or..?

    Legacy Of The Beast 2021

    Precisely. And I doubt they'd only tour the markets that are still without LOTB show; there's no way they'd book another year of LOTB just because a couple of countries didn't get that show. The key here being the difference between cancelling and rescheduling LOTB shows. As the NZ/AU/etc. leg...

    Legacy Of The Beast 2021

    That's what I thought too; which, along with the mention about trying to fit some of the cancelled NZ/AU/etc. dates for first half of 2022 might indicate that the new '16 style EF1 leg is now planned for 2022. Which is kinda obvious, of course, but yeah.

    Legacy Of The Beast 2021

    It's a pity what happened to Australia/New Zealand/a few other dates, but LOTB for next year was still pretty much confirmed. Given that first half of 2022 and planned busy schedule for next year were mentioned, I believe the 2022 will (finally?) be the new album tour, as the album release might...

    Official Star Wars Thread

    I agree with you about Palpatine himself being rather cool in the film, regardless how stupid, needless or whatever the concept and the way of bringing him back was! And this Rey thing... yeah. I think it was very forced way to explain her powers and make her "important." And while TLJ didn't...

    Official Star Wars Thread

    Yeah, while TLJ is one of my favourite Star Wars movies and definitely the very favourite from the recent trilogy, I definitely agree that it is somewhat problematic from the trilogy narrative point of view. Then again, I think it provided a lot of thematical substance and interesting ideas for...

    The injustice towards TLJ hurts me the most. :(

    On music genres

    I wholeheartedly agree about this. It brings an interesting angle to the - in my opinion - boring and tiring debates around "BLACK ALBUM ISN'T METAL" or whether Guns N' Roses is metal to any extent or not. Especially with the first mentioned, the legacy, attitude, imagery and lyrical content of...

    Official Star Wars Thread

    I definitely agree with the above about most points raised, but here's a couple of notes/alternate views/different opinions: I agree about it that scene suffering from the fact that it had to be more or less thought through along the making process of the film, but then again, the whole film...

    Official 2020 Tour Thread

    Neat joke anyway. ;) But taken out from the Nicko comment context, what @Revelationer said is something I definitely get behind. Yes, a whole new tour concept would be neat, and yes tHeYRE nOT gEtTINg any yOunGEr!!! but as it is, things could still get much worse and after a break as long as...
