I was immediately reminded of that artwork. I almost felt that the artwork was designed knowing the subject matter/setting of speed of light's music video. It was a sort of "teaser" that I only realized in hindsight.I really think this song is fantastic, I'm more hyped than ever for the new album now, Bruce'Ones vocals are out of this world and I loved the solo.
Something I was wondering though, do you think the video was inspired by the Maiden artwork at Comiccon that was posted a while back?

This is America and we don't care about properly researching non-white cultures! They're all the same as far as we're concerned!Now, about the video: I like it a lot. It's really cool. But if I was to nitpick, there's one thing that bothers me.
The last level, the first-person one, is supposed to represent The Book of Souls, right? And that album is supposed to have a Mayan vibe to it, right? Then why, please in the name of everything explain it to me, why is there an Aztec sun stone?Aztec and Maya are not the same. They are not. Putting an Aztec item in a Maya environment is like depicting Plato's library with a Qur'an. The Aztecs appeared in the 13th century, the classic Maya age ended seven hundred years before that. They spoke entirely different languages and had entirely different belief systems. I know that in the 2012 hysteria, the Aztec sun stone was always shown depicting the Mayan calendar, and it was wrong then already.
I'm taking this as a reference to poorly researched video games, not the album artwork.
It doesn't really sound that much different to me and I've been spinning the CD version all day.I don't get why the sound is so bad. I can't hear the bass and everything sounds muddy once more. The best mp3 quality I got was 192k. Let's see if the CD sounds any better. It better be.
