    I was looking up something on Wikipedia tonight and randomly decided to put The Iron Maidens into the search to see if anything would come up. This page did - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Iron_Maidens and at the bottom of the second paragraph in the background section it says, "2008 brings Root Of All Evil, a 4 song EP on their Japanese label Powerslave Records."

    Is this just a renamed version of the Route 666 ep or something new?? Cos in the discography it's credited to 2007.

    From the Maidens Japanese site, translation via Babelfish. :err:

    Kimiko could something be lost in translation as to "disco beat"? :erk:

    thank you for translation:)

    but,uhh.....in Japanese written only"disco beat"...no other information.
    so,I think translation is right(but it can't translate"Maidens" and "instrumental").

    there's no sample on webshop(HMV or Amazon),so just wait and see...
    I'm waiting for the information from Maidens!

    Yep! I've only heard two songs from it and I love them both. Talked to Aja about getting a copy but she says it's sadly unavailable now. :(

    so far as i know it's only available in japan. the band is still waiting to get personal copies so we'll see if we get more with the shipment.
    re: disco version - done while we were in bahrain and a specific genre remix requested by the label. i'd say it borders on moody ambient rather than disco - kind of a melancholy feel on war lol

    I think the word 'disco' is rather misleading - and not really the best translation. It makes it sound like we remade the Trooper into Boogie Fever or something! :lol: It's a dance remix, pure and simple. The label wanted to give a try at promoting the music of Maiden and our versions of it to those who aren't already Iron Maiden fans. Since a lot of the younger people there spend their time in dance clubs and the airwaves are full of j-pop, they had to find another way to do it - kind of like bringing the mountain to Mohammed....

    It was important to maintain the integrity of the song while translating it to this very different genre. That's a pretty tall order! So we tapped the talents of people we knew and felt we could trust - in this case, my husband, bassist Lynn Woolever and his partner, Glenn Baren. I know that to some folks doing something like this with the music is akin to sacrilege. For what it's worth, though, I once read an interview with Bruce who said although he appreciated people being faithful to the original versions when they record their music he would love to hear versions of their songs that are completely different. We sure did that here!! :lol:

    Ultimately, IMHO, it shows once again the greatness of the songwriting, by transcending a specific musical style. And if it brings a few more lambs to the fold who will then discover the greatness of Maiden's music then mission accomplished! :saint: So, hopefully, people will listen first before making up their minds on what they think of it....

    Please forgive the length and wordiness of this post but I thought some of you would like to know a little more about the whys and what fors.
