RockmusicRaider - Iron Maiden - The Writing on the Wall - Video Cover

Oh my. A new clip from Iron Maiden is out in the open, and we didn’t see it coming. The RMR deck crew is eagerly awaiting that new full-length record. This elusive new piece is so overdue, it starts to feel like AC/DC that were pronounced officially dead, before making an about-turn back to reality. In this light, any new track that surfaces is an indicator of new delights heading our way, right?

So, The Writing on the Wall arrives out of the left-field after some six years of radio silence. And it comes in the form … [...] Click to raid more!

Succeeding and – indeed – thriving in the music industry is hard. Real hard. Many bands out there try to eke out a living from the music they create, but very few make a decent amount of cash off their efforts.

Fast forward to modern times, it is now some five years since The Book of Souls hit … [...] Click to raid more!

At first, we got confused with Operation: Mindcrime of Queensrÿche. How come a record sounds so ’80s when the label says that it is made in 2003?

Okay, our bad, the researcher somehow did not connect the dots correctly. This was when the remaster happened. But the original record indeed dates back to 1988. So, all’s well in metal universe again.

Yet confusion does suit this band well. It snugly goes together with the hullabaloo around Geoff Tate in 2012, a time when the band fired him along with … [...] Click to raid more!
