I’m not sure if it’s really that different from previous albums. I’m thinking The Final Frontier in particular had a ton of hype (so much so it broke the official forum twice). The Book of Souls was weird in that it just got announced unceremoniously, but I suspect that external circumstances prevented them from doing anything more interesting. A combination of Bruce’s cancer throwing schedules off and Amazon leaking the album info.

IMO it just goes to show how long it takes Maiden to make an album and how much technology/marketing changes during those intervals. Viral marketing is a much more commonplace thing now than it was even in 2015. This is the 2021 equivalent of throwing up a countdown on the homepage of the website.

In what way did Maiden hype TFF before the album announcemnt? I don't remember them actually releasing something every day for 2 or 3 weeks leading up the the announcement of the album release like they are now. So I definitely see this as quite different and with the possibility of leading up to something special.

Well they had two countdowns, one leading up to the tour and another leading up to the album. We knew the album title way in advance with no other info which led to more speculation and buildup to the final reveal

Oh, and they also did an entire NA tour to generate hype for that upcoming album.

This is still somewhat different. :lol:

You all are pretty into and I'm pretty sure this album is the last one from them and the final sign of IM decline in terms of popularity. Everywhere response for their new propositions is poor. No way this album succeed the way as a few former ones.
Honestly, I've been lurking on this forum from the era of Dance of Death, if I remember correctly. Surely from the moment that the official forum started the memberships. Also, I've been a moderator in a couple of forums of considerable size. Please please, stop writing. You are, by far, one of the worst forum members in the history of forums.

Even 3 years ago people still supported them but now it's over.

How it's over? I'm quite confident that the couple of tours they have left in them will sell rather well and the upcoming record will have a decent "buzz" around it too.

Generally there are less and less people supporting them nowadays and if you realize their publications on socials and YT have less views than few years ago - situation becomes clear and obvious.

New ventures and social media response goes hand in hand. I think you've grown disillusioned by their lack of new material and want Maiden to be over and done. I've been disappointed and indifferent, but never have I wanted Maiden to be over.

.:The Final Frontier:.
Back in the late nineties, I remember them being called a "seasoned" band in an article about VXI era. Since then, they released five (almost six) albums, toured extensively and are no less popular than what they were in the eighties. The pandemic has put everything on a hyatus, but I'm confident that in the next few years they'll do successful tours as usual.

So we will see how to be the reaction for new single/video and album when they release these ones. Unfortunately I really think I'm right.
