    So, what are your thoughts on the upcoming new Maiden release? I know I am optimistic, plus it means I get to see Maiden again live! :kickass:

    3rd time is a charm! :Smug: I want to take my 4 yr old daughter if it's an outdoor show.

    Like I mentioned on the newest episode, hopefully this will be the good Maiden album, since every other album is good, and its time again for a good album...

    I've heard one song and was not that impressed, but I am also holding out hope.

    The song that has been released is a grower, that is for sure.

    I heard it only twice... hasn't grown on me yet thats why iam bit down with it too. Its brooding and it paces slowly but has a nice instrumental section.i Also i would like to know the subject story of it so maybe i could get the song more.. By the way, Evil C. seems down with Dance of Death.. i can't see why. Rainmaker, No more Lies, Dance of Death, Paschendale, Age of Innocence, journeyman are classic maiden.

    I think "brooding" is where they are often their best, but the brood has to kick in with the gallop!

    3 songs are out now for listening from the maiden camp. Different Worlds, Brighter than a Thousand Suns and the Reincarnation of Beergerman (or something Likethat). So Far iam getting positive about the new album. And finally got to absorb Reincarnation... sure is a grower. :headbang:

    The other songs truly kick ass...Dickinson seems to have gotten even better. That's like Satan getting more evil.

    Just to add to that...I finally heard the album in its entirety. There isn't a single mediocre song on the goddamn thing...it's straight Maiden excellence from beginning to end. They've finally figured out how to combine "the brood and the gallop", as Papa Josh said...and the results are stunning. I think this may ACTUALLY be their best album since Seventh Son.

    This one reminds me of X Factor in it's dark approach... now if we could only get them to re-record that album with Bruce, that would be one of my favorite Maiden releases...

    Make sure you run right out and get your copy tomorrow, at least in the States anyway. Then we can all listen to the real thing and give our thoughts.

    So a hearty two thumbs up for the new Maiden, couple songs I could do without but overall a very good release.

    I got the Best Buy version with the exclusive patch!

    Dvd is cool, too.

    I don't care for that first song, weak opener, but yes, a good album. And it made me pull out Dance of Death which I haven't done in awhile.

    Haven't seen the video but the song is pretty fucking boring, still hasn't grown on me. So I guess if you start with a dull song you get a boring video?
