Why four songs? Didn't Bruce say one or t
He said about one or two songs twotw,stratego i guess. But i think they gonna play only twotw. And maybe after that they will make o new tour playing half set with the new songs. And half some older ones .Where did “4 new songs on LOTB” thing come from? Is that another thing I missed? I could see one song being played, maybe 2. If they get up to 4 I would be worried about them skipping a full Senjutsu tour
They won't rebrand the tour. Confirmed by Bruce. They won't swap out the songs with big production (those are Aces, WED, Trooper, Revelations, SOTC, FOI, TNOTB, IM and RTTH). Confirmed by Bruce.
However, they will likely play 2-3 new songs next year. One of them is TWOTW and likely Senjutsu. Also confirmed by Bruce.
We’ll have to agree to disagree then.
"intro and outro" lol. It's the cancer of many of their songsOn my 3rd listen through and the first on vinyl. Sounds fantastic
I like the album more every time, I was slightly disappointed yesterday as I wasn't initially blown away like i was with TBOS but it has clicked a lot with this listen. Although i should say that this time around I have gone into the album with a more critical ear, maybe that is part of being on this forum....
I have seen comments that parts of the album sound very 90s Blaze era Maiden which I completely agree with (and is fine with me!)
5 things i love (apart from nearly all the songs)
Steve still has a fantastic ear for melody
I am a sucker for an "Egyptian" sounding melody (I really should learn scale names)
Bruce sounds incredible and the use of vocal layering
the clean sections of Lost in a Lost Land
LOST IN ANGER - LIFE IN DANGERRRRR
5 Things i don't like
The shoehorned clean section before last chorus of Days of Future Past, ruins the song for me
Death of the Celts (intro and outro are cool though)
I have never complained about Maiden's song lengths but I felt a couple of these could have been trimmed.
Having to flip the vinyls so many times
I can't really think of a 5th one, I guess a couple of songs have transitions that feel a little jarring (but what do i know i guess, Steve is a genius)
Guys I have been hearing that some people are receiving the deluxe boxset without the lyrics booklet and instead two booklets for writing on the wall. Can anyone confirm that they have received everything it is supposed to contain. Quite worried about this since the only way i can have physical copy of the album is by expensive shipping.
But he said something about people that done TWOTW video, said it’s also animated. But well, it’s Bruce, he can say anything… I suppose it’ll come out Monday.I'm thinking maybe that Bruce interview was recorded a few weeks ago and he was talking about the flag animation one
