    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    They tend to want to do a tour as a follow up/promotion to a new album. I presume that if they can't tour then they won't be releasing a new album. They are an established "classic" band and don't need to keep their fan base warm with regular releases. I'm actually worried about the impact of...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Yeah, SSoaSS is great album. I don't really care that it is a loose concept. Each song stands strong on its own.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I don't like Operation: Mindcrime, only one good song on that album. I've never read through the lyrics so the whole concept aspect of it is totally lost on me. I've not heard of Abigail.

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I don't like concept albums. Songs should stand on their own, not fit into some longer narrative where they need to be listened in a particular order and all together. I don't have time to listen to a whole album in a sitting. And I don't want songs compromised in order to fit an overall theme...

    Question for people who want Maiden to tune down

    I don't think I'd care. Maybe if I heard them play in a different key then I might have an opinion on it. I don't have perfect pitch, I have relative pitch, so I probably wouldn't even notice unless I tried to play along and then I'd notice that either they are in a different tuning or my guitar...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I prefer Final Frontier and A Matter of Life and Death to Book of Souls. Dance of Death is great and Brave New World is also good. I think BoS was probably the least great album since the return of Bruce. In my opinion of course. BoS has shinning moments, in particular Red and Black, but it...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST 2019

    I'm a really big Maiden fan and if they did a tour covering No prayer, Fear, X Factor and Virtual X1. I'd give it a miss. I'd be happy to see the No prayer songs, but I certainly wouldn't fork out money for songs from the other three albums. It would be a disaster tour. They have learnt that...

    LEGACY OF THE BEAST 2019

    We already have several DVDs with the same songs, over and over. And also the same editing of about 2-5 seconds per scene. I'd only be interested in buying a DVD if it has much longer cuts. I'd actually like to see a whole solo, I'd actually like to see what the band members are doing rather...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    Well, I'm still proud to claim that NZ is still nuclear free and that no nuclear powered ships have ever come here. And I am baffled in world condemnation at countries like North Korea or Iraq or Iran trying to develop Nukes. But in support of USA declaring war on Iraq based on them developing...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    It's about maximising profits. If money can be made on extending current tour, then do that. New album can wait. The new album will generate interest in the new songs and a tour including some of those new songs, so don't release new album until you are ready for the new tour. Iron Maiden is a...

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Invaders and Gangland are the only blemishes on that album. Otherwise its songs are terrific. Killers don't have any songs anywhere near as bad as I and G

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    At least 3 albums way worse than Killers Fear of the Dark, X Factor, Virtual XI Killers has no bad songs, all songs on that album are great. The above three albums are full of bad songs. (maybe one or two good songs on Fear, one decent song on X Factor, none good on Virtual XI) TFF is a...

    Iron Maiden studio album 17 rumours and speculations

    I am really hoping that Steve does produce another epic, something like TRATB would be fantastic. I want more of that, lots of guitars, lots of sections, lots of interesting parts all intermixing and making something great. More please Steve, more...

    The Red And The Black

    The Uriah Heap part is much more closer to the original than the Nomad section is.

    The Red And The Black

    It's almost as if bands have influences. The Nomad influence is fine. This is Uriah heap is fine, just a small riff at the beginning, The Hallowed Lyrics rip off isn't fine though.

    Metallica

    Overall, the songs have very little guitar or vocal melodies, just a weak sounding, almost indistinguishable bunch of distorted "chords" creating a rhythm, the rhythm pattern of each song is short and is repeated over and over ad nauseaum. There is no bass. The solos are good though and give a...

    Metallica

    Master of Puppets is by far their best Then Kill 'em all, then Ride the lightening. AJFA is quite a distance behind these. And then its all drastically down hill from there.

    St. Anger vs. Lulu

    Don't like either album at all

    Metallica

    AJFA is the worst of the Metallica thrash albums. It's highly repetitive, and just drones on and on. One is the only great song on that album
