I admit it; I am a total Iron Maiden fan. Ain’t nothin’ to be ashamed of though, as they totally fucking rock. And they still rule after all these years. Looking at the track list for the new album gave me shivers!
- Different Worlds (Smith/Harris – 4.17)
- These Colours Don’t Run (Smith/Harris/Dickinson – 6.52)
- Brighter Than a Thousand Suns (Smith/Harris/Dickinson – 8.44)
- The Pilgrim (Gers/Harris – 5.07)
- The Longest Day (Smith/Harris/Dickinson – 7.48)
- Out Of the Shadows (Dickinson/Harris – 5.36)
- The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg (Murray/Harris – 7.21)
- For The Greater Good Of God (Harris – 9.24)
- Lord Of Light (Smith/Harris/Dickinson – 7.23)
- The Legacy (Gers/Harris – 9.20)
Fucking right! Up the Irons! Those song names sound really cool, and my God some of those songs are loooong! Gotta love epic Maiden songs; they usually rule. Nothing quite as long as Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which is 13 and a half minutes long, but not bad none the less.
I’m stoked. I hope it’s a concept album. I can already see some themes emerging: Light and Darkness, Death and Rebirth, Time and Change….
Looks fucking great. I can’t wait. But it looks like I will have to wait until it’s released in September.
