Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

Kalata

Out of the Silent Planet
Kevin Shirleys notebook. Seems Senjutsu was once titled The Great Wall.
Bruce said that the song is about defending a wall, so The Great Wall is not a surprise.
This actually contains more fun facts that we can imply:

a) Hell On Earth was probably the first song recorded for the album, altough its the last one on the record
b) TWOTW was the last one to be recorded, altough was the first one to be unveiled.
c) TWOTW has 5:50, this may mean the the acoustic intro was not originally part of the song
Also:

d) ''Darkest Hour'' is shorter.
e) Adrian was to have a solo on ''Stratego''.
f) DOFP solo is from the demo.

Going to get my vinyl-editions (norm black, red, but silver is coming later) and deluxe book today. So looking forwards to the first listening session.
Great just great..I love these precious moments..I will try to write some little review and thoughts later.

But I just can't believe how they messed the booklets, especially thinking how we preordered the FC exclusive box and so this happens again (like it did with NOTD). Rod must be pissed again, remember as he promised this wouldn't be happening again (when the large problems with the NOTD orders were addressed). Unfuckinbeliable! I knew that with international shipping it would take days to receive the 400€ FC boxset but still..

So whats Senjutsu like??? Is it Shit? Is it their Darkest Hour? Should Iron Maiden jump into the The Time Machine and get Lost in a Lost World and bring in the Holograms of themselves on stage from the Days of Future Past like ABBA gunna do?

We want Hell on Earth! Lets reveal The Parchment! :rocker:

I remember someone mentioning about this thing before..

The awkward moment when the cover has a better mix/production value than the original. HOW HARD CAN IT BE?????

Sorry - I don't like it. I just finished listening to Stratego on YT and then I clicked on your link. I have the impression that I am listening to a song that is being played by a neighbor behind the wall. Played in a tin can.

I actually listened to them back to back. Let me rephrase it then... I LIKE THE COVER SOUND MORE. :)

The best thing about music is that everyone feels it differently. This variety is needed. After listening to the album more than 10 times - I have no objection to the sound of the album, everything for me is much clearer than on BoS.

Yep it is much cleaner than BOS. I feel it is a bit dry though. It lacks the warmth of some of the older albums, not necessarily the Golden era ones!
