IRON MAIDEN's eagerly awaited new studio album, "The Book Of Souls", will be released globally on September 4 through Parlophone Records (Sanctuary Copyrights/BMG in the U.S.A.). It was recorded in Paris with their longstanding producer Kevin "Caveman" Shirley in late 2014, with the finishing touches added earlier this year. However, the band decided to delay its release so that vocalist Bruce Dickinson, who was recently given the all-clear from a tumour, would have time to recuperate sufficiently to join in the preparations for the album's launch.
The stunning cover art was created by Mark Wilkinson, who has worked with the band previously, and because this 11-track album has a total running time of 92 minutes, it is IRON MAIDEN's first-ever double studio album. There's a broader split on the songwriting compared to previous MAIDEN records, with bassist and founder member Steve Harris contributing to seven of the tracks; six of them with MAIDEN's guitarists and one sole composition. This is also the first time since 1984's "Powerslave" that an IRON MAIDEN studio album also features two tracks written solely by Bruce Dickinson, one of which is the longest song MAIDEN has ever recorded! And also two Dickinson/Smith collaborations.
Steve comments: "We approached this album in a different way to how we've recorded previously. A lot of the songs were actually written while we were there in the studio and we rehearsed and recorded them straight away while they were still fresh, and I think that immediacy really shows in the songs, they have almost a live feel to them, I think. I'm very proud of 'The Book Of Souls', we all are, and we can't wait for our fans to hear it, and especially to take it out on the road next year!"
Bruce continues: "We're really excited about 'The Book Of Souls' and had a fantastic time creating it. We started working on the album in late summer 2014 and recorded it at Guillame Tell Studios in Paris, where we'd done the 'Brave New World' album back in 2000 so the studio holds special memories for all of us. We were delighted to discover the same magical vibe is still alive and very much kicking there! So we immediately felt at home and the ideas just started flowing. By the time we'd finished we all agreed that each track was such an integral part of the whole body of work that if it needed to be a double album, then double its going to be!"

"The Book Of Souls" is IRON MAIDEN's 16th studio album since their eponymous debut in 1980 charted at #4 in the UK, in a career achieving sales of over 90 million albums worldwide. Their previous album, 2010's "The Final Frontier", was MAIDEN's most successful chart-wise to date, reaching Number One in 28 countries and was their highest chart debut in the U.S reaching #4 in The Billboard 200.
Due to Bruce's illness, the band had to delay touring plans but promise to be out on the road again early next year, giving time for Bruce to make a full physical recovery to be ready for the rigours of MAIDEN live performances.
UP THE IRONS
I have a feeling the Ghost album is going to be dope
Still pissed In Solitude broke up.
It's funny you mention that, because I just saw it yesterday for the first time.
Their first two albums were cool, but I thought Sister was one of the best and freshest albums of the past few years. I loved the direction they were going in.
Just saw it last week. Reading their statement, I respect that artistically they felt that more albums would dilute what they were doing and decided to preserve that band but FUCK I WANT MORE
And you're right about Sister.
13 years is a long time to be a band when everyone in it is like 25.
I saw them at couple of years ago when they toured with Watain. The crowd was pretty small and they seemed to appreciate that someone knew their songs. We'll always have that moment
This isn't metal, but I think the Prog Rock thread died. If you like jazz-Prog fusion, the Aristocrats are releasing "Tres Caballeros" tomorrow.
They are led by probably one of the top 3 guitarists in the world right now, Guthrie Govan.
I wouldn't be opposed to sheltering the orphaned prog rock thread in here for a time. We are brothers from another mother.
If too much prog is posted, we'll have to post some super heavy shit to balance it out, though. Like this:
Spoiler: Hail Of Bullets - Ordered Eastward
I like Dream Theater's first album
They are one of those bands that I never 'got.' Is this album a good starting place?
Well they had a different singer on their first album, so probably not. Their sound is also a lot more raw and undeveloped. Metropolis Part II is probably a good starting point. Or Octavarium.
I don't know if any of their albums are good start to finish, but there are usually 3 or 4 good ones per album. I can make a list later if you'd like
I'll try Octavarium and let you know what I think.
Anyone go to this last week?
What about this one?
This was the first album of theirs that I liked. Make sure you listen to the title track.
enjj I had heard Bolt Thrower was touring Canada. They are on that Amnesia lineup. No idea why they don't make US stops. Those Once Loyal is my favorite death metal record of all time. It's amazingly accessible.
Spoiler: Bolt Thrower - Anti-Tank (Dead Armour)
enjj that Heavy Montreal lineup is really fucking good. Meshuggah, Gorguts, Insomnium, Lamb Of God, Obscura, Pig Destroyer, Neurosis, Gojira, wow.
Has anyone listened to Ishahn's solo stuff? I love the early Emperor shit, I think he went in a prog rock direction though.
Alleged top 10 metal releases this summer.
The main riff from Pallid Hands by In Solitude is so good that I made a thread about it.
Death Knows Where takes it for my favorite riff from that album.
Spoiler: Rotting Christ - Live In Kharkiv
^^^^ this is awesome, especially right around 8:50 or so.
The 40 Best Post-Metal Records Ever Made:
Spoiler: The Monolith Deathcult - Demigod
Somehow the beginning of this song has been rattling around in my head for the past couple of days
I like that album, but I thought it was really overrated by non-metal review sites
Oh shit, there's a new Arcturus album. Learned about it from http://www.heavyblogisheavy.com/2015/06/29/25-albums-of-2015-so-far-that-are-worth-your-time/
I just listened to the first song, and it's weird and awesome
Yeah, it's pretty weird. I listened to it a few times but forgot about it.
I liked Garm's singing more. Vortex is cool though.
that Elder song is dope too, especially the second half
this is the most black metal video ever
kvlt as fuck
new Ghost that went on sale (accidentally?) on Mexico's iTunes store https://soundcloud.com/joe_pesci/ghost-from-the-pinnacle-to-the-pit
well it got taken down. here's the dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/avv00tftzzii581/02 From the Pinnacle To the Pit.m4a?dl=0
The Awake album, in my opinion, is one of the few albums from this group that you can just put on and let play without having to worry about dull moments or filler until it all ends with the last track, Space Dye Vest. One of their finest songs I'd like to think and it always makes me laugh whenever the realization hits me that a movie or show or book that I'm reading was referenced or had a sample used throughout the album which prompts me to give it another wistful play through, but that's just my personal interaction with said song. Good stuff, that.
If I ever had to recommend atleast one Theatre album, it would be that one provided that said person wasn't against listening to Change of Seasons 23 minute long medley title track and then the other mash up of covers they did for that ep.
