Disagree that they topped it, but I do think that the past two records have been consistently strong. Like they rebooted to a classic old age Iron Maiden sound with TBOS and are continuing forward with it for Senjutsu.I said once after Book of Souls came out that I couldn't imagine them topping that album. I still think it's an amazing album. Then Senjutsu came out and is, to me, far superior as an album. For a band to keep topping itself like this is insane, yet they keep doing it, imo. Whatever they decided to do next, I am pumped as fuck to listen to it.
That would be cool. Medieval king or barbarian.I could see them doing something medieval.
I've always thought over that.Or for final album have an actual Iron Maiden torture device on the back ground.
With their recent covers, I wouldn't say so.Would it be original to have Eddie as a object again (like Powerslave, Brave New World Eddie)?
Not for Maiden."Less is more" would be a good theme.
Atlantis concept album would be great.
Once I mentioned that Maiden should do Atlantis concept double album (vinyl double, just one CD) on this forum, people laughed. I still think that musically and lyricaly that could be great album, maybe one of Maiden's best. As far as Eddie and package design goes, Riggs should design everything, or maybe Akirant, or Riggs together with Akirant. I can imagine merchandise with Maiden's Atlantis theme.
The theme would suit Maiden perfectly imo, musically and lyrically. The merchandise would be awesome. As for the artist, Melvyn Grant or Akirant for me.
Portuguese, actually. Attick Demons (the band a lot of people repost as NEW MAIDEN!!!! cuz the singer sounds a bit like Bruce) titled their debut album Atlantis.
Only power metal bands should make songs on this theme? Maybe the Avalon theme too? Well, 2010 album! I think it suits Maiden, ''Babylon theme'' too.I'm still laughing. You're confusing Maiden with an Italian power metal band.
On this theme Eddie could be anyhting and it would be curious.End of the world theme to it
This is a very possible idea.tie it in to a hybrid farewell/album tour.
Is there a song about a tv show or a movie in the reunion era?Since Maiden's "themes" are usually very loose anyway, I'm not sure it matters. We'll still get a song about war, a tv-show/movie, a book, and some history stuff that may or may not be tied to the actual album theme.
Inspired at least.Days of Future Past was stated to be about the movie Constantine.
When the Wild Wind BlowsIs there a song about a tv show or a movie in the reunion era?
I remember The Mercenary possibly being about Predator, but nothing besides that.
Well, imo, Avalon theme is much much better than Atlantis. It is british. Checks knights, medieval, honor, mystic etc. boxes. I support this direction. This theme is a cousin to The Chemical Wedding. Remember Bruce's song Return of the King.Only power metal bands should make songs on this theme? Maybe the Avalon theme too? Well, 2010 album! I think it suits Maiden, ''Babylon theme'' too.
