Thread for all discussion of the track 'Stratego' from Iron Maiden's 17th Studio album 'Senjutsu'.
Lyrics were posted on the YouTube post by the band. Here they are:First impressions:
I enjoy the production a lot, Bruce could be a bit louder, but in general it feels much clearer and cleaner than TBOS.
Bruce sings the verse and parts of the chorus in his mid range, which sounds fantastic. We know that he can reach high notes, but often it doesn't sound as good anymore and it feels like some lines are simply written to show that he can reach the notes. That's not what is happening here and I'm glad.
The chorus finally has some vocal harmonies! I'm an absolute sucker for that and I'm incredibly happy.
Looking forward to reading the lyrics once we have them.
Someone mentioned the solo sounding like it's ripped out of The Nomad and I can certainly hear the similarities lol
All in all (it's far too early obviously but) I enjoy both singles a lot, Stratego much more than TWOTW and if the rest of the album is of a similar quality it's going to be really special.
