If none of them climb the stairway to Heaven, I don't see why they shouldn't be able to make another album. Heaven can wait...If we consider that Maiden takes 5 years to write albums and they wrote this one in spring 2019 then it has already been 2.5 years. So album #18 should be around spring 2024. The final maiden album given Nico's age. I am hopeful there is at least one more left.
And what about people who attend listening parties? I see there is one in Oslo tomorrow for people who win a competition.If bought in a store it can't be considered a leak, so should be fine reviewing it here then?
