      I really like this new song! On another site I frequent we were commenting how this has a nice 80s vibe to it. I think this bodes well for the new double album, only time will tell though.

        Yes, a slight back to basics approach which is hopeful. The song lengths of course hint at more prog metal but a double Iron Maiden album is quite an event in any case.

          I am. I know it will be good, as Iron Maiden can't really release a bad album.

            Music video is really cool. I will give the double album a listen but I'm not expecting much. Just not the biggest Maiden fan in the world.

              You should definitely expand your Maiden collection, you will probably become a fan.

                  I believe every album released after Powerslave to range from "mediocre" to "bad" tbh.

                  I enjoy and respect Maiden, but they released their classics (the first five), then they became derivative.

                    The song rocks, I like it. The video is cool too.

                    I will say though, Bruce's vocals kinda annoy me these days. Very much looking forward to the album though.

                      Love the song and the video.
                      Bruce sings wonderfuly with a lower tone. the track grows on me listen after listen. A good 80's vibe la "Somewhere In Time" era . Nicko still 's got that fantastic groove.
                      it seems to be a demo, which is not displease me.
                      The video is truly in the spirit of old covers, full of references and details to all previous artworks.
                      I don't really understand the bashing about The Final Frontier. I enjoy this album .

                        Don't get me wrong I like their classic stuff but I have not been interested in a long time. I will Always be a moderate fan of the band but they will never be one of my favorites.

                          I have had the album on pre-order ever since I heard it was being released.

                          That first song certainly sounds promising (I've only listend to it once) I expect it to grow on me. As TYR said it's got an old school vibe about it, I wonder if that is reflected through out the whole album?

                          I posted on the "..Last Album Bought" thread that my only concern is that there are 3 very long songs on the album, if they are of the quality of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner then great, but in recent albums their longer songs (8mins+) tend to be the low points of the albums.
                          My name is Lucifer please take my hand.

                            Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son are as great as the first five albums.

                            The new singles is great. It will keep growing on me like Redeemer of Souls did.

                              I only really like their first seven albums, haven't paid attention to anything past Seventh Son, too busy listening to my Sabbath and Sabbath related music, that's all I need, all I want!
