IRON MAIDEN – The Book of Souls

Daniel Lemminkainen 31/08/2015 No Comments on IRON MAIDEN – The Book of Souls


Up the irons! Iron Maiden brought us not one, but 2 albums in a book they call “The Book of Souls”.

The progressive side of the band is more than noticed on this one, and quality of the musicians pops out very naturally in an opus that really gives us a lesson of what heavy metal should be. Guitars are very organic, the drum work is perfect, and Bruce Dickinson’s voice flows within the songs in great fashion. I’m very glad to hear that his health problem didn’t take over his talent. If “Eternally Should Fail”, “The Great Unknown”,”The Red and The Black”, “When The River Runs Deep”, “Death or Glory”, and the single “Speed of Light” are truly great songs. “Tears of a Clown” is dedicated to one of most extraordinary actors that sadly left us, Robin Williams. This one specially touched me since I’m a great fan of him.

Last but not the least, the stunning epic song called “Empire of The Clouds” closes this new chapter of this historic band that will definitely live forever not only in the heart of the metalheads, but also in the heart of the ones who love music.
