I have a question for you all , it's about something that has intrigued me reading the Steve's special thanks at the end of the booklet: He thanks all the people who have worked for Maiden since the beginning : members and technicians… Is it some short to say goodbye? What do you think?
Loopy is asked about the times he appears in album credits and he says that for this album for a reason that he can't talk about Steve wants to keep it under wraps. Source: Satellite 664 channel. at 1:30 min. or so

I noticed some days ago another post from Daniel, on twitter: an hint to a documentary on Maiden? (sorry if it was posted before)


I think the twitter user is just making a joke. What could a documentary with Frank Turner discussing things with Suggs (from the band Madness) have to do with Maiden?

If there is a documentary I'd say that is one step beyond.

So what?

Don’t get me wrong, but I find this trend of YouTube reviews from musicians from other bands quite amusing. Are they just trying to get free publicity or what?
Don't know. Maybe he needs some public recognition as his band is not famous in Europe, just in France. And Maiden is a monster around the globe. So, the possible reason of his spitting on the best heavy metal band in the world is jealousy... That's why he's criticizing 'Senjutsu', Maiden and Kevin Shirley...

I think someone mentioned here (not so long ago) that a new Maiden documentary is coming. Maybe they will skip the History Part 4 documentary and release one that covers their entire career/history instead. This Twitter post confirms that a new Maiden documentary is on the way. Great news.

Can I play with Agnes
dont know...just i dont like that album. I prefer Virtual XI and X factor than DOD by far.
This is really amazing. There is truly a sound and an album for everybody. Did you like Angel and the gambler, Educated Fool or Don't look to the eyes of a stranger?

That twitter post has nothing to do with a Maiden documentary!

Their styles are so different than I cannot think how someone could not be able to tell them apart.

Anyway, Adrian brought something special to Bruce’s solo albums that wasn’t there on Tyranny of Souls. Being a band by the time the went to record The Chemical Wedding probably helped too.
Absolutely agree! Roy is a shredder through and through. Just listen to the solo on the opening track of Tyranny for example - it's so boring, just one note after the other, all at the same tempo with zero feeling.

DEEPER GREY CAME TO MOURN
I think on the whole it's a very strong album. No real weak songs...but of course we can still all rank them.
I'm not sure it's quite up there with BNW and AMOLAD but its close. How it sits with DOD TFF and BOS I haven't figured out yet.
I think the song Senjutsu it one of the highlights for me. Different, dark, unusually emotional. Very affecting work I think.
Just a quick word on the 'epics' of the album. I think Steve over the last number of years has gone down the route of the extended song...as opposed to an 'epic'. I still think Rime is by a long way...his most epic track. Purely for the sake of the scope of the track. It really travels to different musical locations...comes out of the middle section and builds and builds into a new explosive world. It Travels.
I think the recent stuff, which I do love by the way....doesn't really do this scope/travel thing, that I feel robs them of some of that epic status.
I'm also not a 'Powerslave' fanboy. Of course its great, but no better then BNW and AMOLAD. Each with their own vibes and flavours.
I suppose theres just that quality of scope and travel that I would love to have seen in Steve's epics. The new stuff tends to stay in the same musical location. Anyways...just some thoughts. I'm very happy with the new album and look forward each day to selecting a song to get into.
I know I haven't unlocked the whole album yet

Now Im really curious about thanks list on the album cover, Steve mentions all those people, it has to be hint or goodbye and it just doesn't feel like random thing to happen today.
Did someone mention that they had been in contact with Di'Anno later, if the list was compiled in 2018? I recall reading that somewhere.
