  1. the first thing that catches my eye is the length of the songs, 6 of them over the 7 minute mark. bring on the epics! :)

  2. I saw the same thing! I like the Maiden epics but sometimes I think they lose some fans attention with the longer songs.

    Regardless of the exact date, I know that I’ll be picking this one up as soon as i can get my hands on it! Thanks for keeping us informed.

  4. Maiden, Motorhead, and UFO all have new albums coming between August and September…..I’ll be spending some extra bucks. Maiden is a must buy and I’ll go out and get the Limited edition.

  5. Metal Mark says:

    I am interested in the ones from Maiden, Motorhead, Slayer and Mastodon. This year is starting to remind me of 1990. In that not a lot of great albums came out between January and July, but then between August and October great new releases came out from Judas Priest, Megadeth, Anthrax, King Diamond and Kreator. It was like the best albums of the year all came out at once.
