That's because all the songs have connection between them. Has Maiden done another "concept" album ?From the title track lyrics:
''Survive on ledges bitten in dust
Knowledge and virtue is stricken by lust
Really believe that they're coming for us
Dancing on graves
Of those who bled for us''
from Hell On Earth lyrics:
''You dance on the graves who bled for us
Do you really think they'll come for us
Knowledge and virtue taken by lust
Live on the edge of those that you trust''
Nice trick, Steve!
Like the connection of Moonchild's lyrics in the intro and OTGDY's lyrics in the outro - again first and last song on the album.
Maybe it's for the 50th celebration in 2025, when the band is planning a super tour with all the ancien band members... So, it confirms the 18th album for 2024 (maybe including some featurings with the band members that Steve is quoting in the thanks section ?).Yeah he usually thanks the most, but the run of old mates and ex-members is a bit unusual, but as I mentioned earlier he seems to have met up with a lot of the old members just prior to when this album was recorded.
Man, the way you’re holding this... I get so worried I’m gonna damage anything on my records that I touch them as daintily as possible lol. You’re posting a power move and it’s scaring me!
