I dig it, especially the soloing. Definitely different from typical Maiden. I like the video, too - sort of a Mad Max/Sons of Anarchy mashup, Liquid Television-style.

I like it, it sounds like an Iron Maiden riff, but not typical Iron Maiden guitar sound. And you can still hear the distinctive Steve Harris bass sound underneath.

And wow, it doesn't feel to me like it's been 6 years since The Book of Souls.

I love it. There are a lot of things in there that we rarely, if ever hear from Maiden. And it all works.

Really good song. Can't wait for the album!

Re: Iron Maiden New Video/ Track - "The Writing On The Wall"

I like it as well. The video is good, but took the time to listen tot he song on Spotify, where it sounds better than YT. It sounds like Maiden with some different elements in it. Cannot wait for the full album, I have really liked their last several releases

The thought is the album will be announced Monday, they have been posting old album covers on social media with WOTW and other new images inserted. At the current pace, they will do Book of Souls on Sunday, so ideally new album cover shown on Monday

Oh jesus, the last 3 songs taking up almost 35 minutes will be nuts.

Hopefully in a good way.

Love Book Of Souls and its long songs so the more the better on this album I say.
Hopefully the BD is the album in 5.1 and not just the already released music video.

If the bluray is just another long boring two hours live concert, then I'll take a pass.

Their live albums/video performances get more and more boring as years go by.

Why, has Iron Maiden released any live albums?

It would have been great if they ever released the entire concert which the Maiden Japan ep came from.

I'd really like to have a vinyl release that looks like the one above, with one silver/black marble LP, one all-black LP, and one red/marble LP.

I'd probably have to buy all three editions and make my own.

Re: Iron Maiden New Video/ Track - "The Writing On The Wall"

Amazon has the 3LP silver "exclusive" up for $16.99. Went ahead and preordered it - I'll hopefully hear more of it prior to release, so I can decide whether or not to keep the order.

Amazon Amazon

This looks to be $45-$50 everywhere else, on black vinyl, so probably a pricing error.

EDIT: deal is dead.

Re: Iron Maiden New Video/ Track - "The Writing On The Wall"

I'm liking the album - definitely one of the better "reunion" albums.
Even though it has similarly long songs like Book of Souls, I think Senjutsu is a stronger album because it's long songs don't drag and repeat like BoS songs do.

And I'm a sucker, so I went ahead and got the red vinyl (which does sound marginally better than digital), and it looks even better than in this promo shot...

Got my $17 vinyl from Amazon yesterday. Probably won't have a chance to spin it 'til this weekend at the soonest.

Re: Iron Maiden New Video/ Track - "The Writing On The Wall"

Yeah, seventeen bucks for the silver edition was too good to pass up even though that color was the least appealing to me. I wonder if someone at Amazon saw the picture and thought they were CDs and priced them as such. (The CD edition is $17.)

The silver does kind of go with the samurai theme, though.

Haven't opened my records yet, but I've heard the album online and it's... okay. Pretty much what one expects from late-period Iron Maiden. It's not bad by any stretch, but it seems really workmanlike.

The only song which I find memorable is "Death of the Celts".

Otherwise the rest of the album sounds like typical generic Iron Maiden songs, which are rather forgettable and just blend into one another whenever I play the cd in the backgrond at home.

That's the problem with Iron Maiden since 1988. The new stuff isn't bad, but I'd rather put on "Number of the Beast," "Piece of Mind," or "Powerslave" if I want to listen to some Maiden.

Though the same can be said for most bands with careers that span decades. I'm looking at you, The Cure!
