I am old school when it comes to Iron Maiden. Or at least 1982 and forward old school. I wasn’t too convinced when Bruce left and was replaced by BLAZE. To this day I try to stay away from the albums he did with them. I know. I am fucked for life. But no matter how great these albums are, it is not Bruce on vocals. Based on that fact I haven’t really cared too much for anything that BLAZE BAYLEY has done after Iron Maiden. Until now. I figured that at one time I had to give him the benefit of the doubt. Not having any sort or relationship with his music post Maiden I can attack this with open ears. I did not expect to hate what I heard, but I am kinda surprised that it is as good as it is. Not knowing if this is a lyrical concept all I can focus on is the music. In a way this makes me think of Germany’s Blind Guardian and their Tolkien-ish power metal. Add to that a feeling of Iron Maiden at their grandest and you get a pretty good idea of what this sounds like. This is a really cool metal album. Anders Ekdahl
