Imo, more fitting vibe, than samurai theme. If this is their last album, it would be logical to use Albion/Avalon themes.

Yeah, this is my sentiment as well. I mean, I've been really liking this album so far, it's great and would be a fitting swan song, however the Japanese title/theme comes totally out of nowhere and IMHO doesn't really fit the atmosphere of the tracks. Belshazzar's Feast or something Arthurian would have been much better fit, methinks.

Bear in mind that it is a Making of the video for The Writing on the Wall, not a Making of video of how they recorded the album in the vein of the documentary that came with AMOLAD.

Time Machine is good/great musically, but lyrically it pisses me off :D
Have I ever told you about my time machine
Sit you down I’ll tell you everywhere I’ve been

No, You didn't tell. It's so interesting, please tell me.

Let me tell you about it, let me take you there
Does it really matter, it’s all in the mind
Let me tell you about it, listen what you’ll find


Tell me, please. I am so eager to hear those wondrous stories. Tell me tell me.

I am not a preacher, I am but a man
You cannot imagine what I’ve seen and done


Ah, I am shaking in anticipation. Tell me, what have You seen?! Tell me tell me.

I have lived a long life, I have seen the world
I could tell you stories, hair will stand on end...


So, will You tell me, or will continue to brag?

I am not a preacher, I am but a man
You cannot imagine what I’ve seen and done...

:facepalm:

The main character was probably too ashamed of what he had done.

Perhaps it’s to be seen like a horror movie that doesn‘t show the monster, because really, it can be more frightening and soon you can‘t tear away from thoughts in your head - head - head - head - head - head - head - head - head

Maybe the other songs on the album are the tales of what he has seen :)

It's going to be close in the U.K.


The UK Official Albums Chart have announced a midweek race for the top spot this coming Friday, with Iron Maiden currently 8,000 sales ahead of second place Drake.

Maiden’s 17th studio effort Senjutsu is beating the rapper’s Certified Lover Boy on physical sales and downloads, but Drake is reportedly winning on streams, so, as the charts state, “everything is still to play for”

8,000 is healthy enough lead, but most Maiden sales have probably already happened.

If you are in the UK listen to it on Spotify until the end of the week.
