    The font is difficult to read, it looks like it's done by a 5 yr old in art class, they should really have cleaned that up. And the logo given that it's as much a brand as it is a name these days probably should be clearer but I don't mind the scuffed look of Eddie.

    It looks like someone photoshopped a PS4 image into a fan-made Iron Maiden album cover.

    Btw, capitalizing on the occasion of Maiden releasing a new album soon, I have a question for you all: Gimme the top 5 best songs of IM after Dickinson made his return (years 2000-2015; from Brave New World to and including The Book of Souls). I'm really curious about your choices. Will prepare my own list later.

    Something like this, but there around 10 songs that could go in the #5 slot:

    1. Starblind
    2. Ghost of the Navigator
    3. The Thin Line Between Love and Hate
    4. Paschendale
    5. Out of the Silent Planet

    I love Starblind, man! Such an underrated gem of a song off The Final Frontier, and they have never played it live. What a fucking shame. Paschendale is the best song on Dance of Death!

    Yeah I remember first thinking that a 20 min song was not going to be easy to listen too but I don't think I have ever skipped it.

    Iron Maiden are one of the best bands at writing consistently good long tracks imo. It's scary how good they are at it.

    I agree but it's funny seeing how many people on other sites and forums etc claim Maiden should go back to writing 3-4 hit singles. I'm sure there is room for songs like that on any Maiden CD but they do a really good job of telling stories and if that story takes 7 minutes or more that's fine they seem to do it well more often than not.

    This announcement has made my day!



    Finally, I'll also get to hear their so far heaviest song "Set the World on Fire" live (and another six songs which haven't been performed live before).

    New Orbit Culture is pretty fucking catchy. I've never been too fond of the clean vocals (which sound like an angsty James Hetfield), but overall they write pretty cool shit--new song included:

    Looking forward to Count Raven.

    If you're into Death/Doom you may enjoy this release from earlier this year:

    Also a recent one from Amenra. One of those bands I really enjoyed live but never got hooked on listening to otherwise:
