Iron Maiden have had ups and downs, but they consistently stuck to their unique style. 2006's A Matter of Life and Death saw a serious departure from that style towards a darker, more progressive sound - it was only a partial success. Unfortunately, Steve Harris and Co. felt encouraged, and decided to go further in their departures. The first 4 songs on The Final Frontier rank among the worst this band has ever committed and most of the time sound nothing like the Iron Maiden everyone knows. Departure from style my ass. If they wanted to depart again, the previous album was the way to do it.

It seems like it's become trendy to dislike any music that becomes even somewhat mainstream. I am by no means bitter; I'm guilty of this prejudice quite often. So, when I saw the album votes go the way they did for The Final Frontier I wasn't shocked. But, in all honesty, I thought this album was pretty hard! This is one of Maiden's most successful albums to date and for a damn good reason. While it does sound different from anything they've done before, that doesn't make it worse. Do you really want three albums that sound exactly like Brave New World?

No, you just worship shitty, abstract music.


No, it's just that unlike you I'm not blinded by fanboyism, even if I liked the band very much many years ago, so I can see it when Maiden sucks.

As for worshipping shitty abstract music, all I can say is I have the knowledge you lack, so I can see beyond raw sound and know if it's good or not. Something a noob like you (and lots of ignorant flowermetal fanboys, by the way) can't do because they've never been able to see what lies beyond the raw sound, close-minded as they are by judging and dismissing everything that doesn't sound soft and melodic as crap. There's an awful lot of things flowermetal fans will never understand because it's beyond their level of comprehension.



I am here Asshole... and i see that you are talking bullshit about me. please accept that you are the only idiot around here and bugger off. we know what is good and what is bad. We don't need your idiotic ideas about maiden and it's music. If you think that throwing shit at a band like maiden will get you anywhere, you are mistaken. New album has everything it should have. if you are bored of it, go and finger your ass, like you usually do.


The problem with douchebags like Dicktator is they think by listening to bands only twenty other people have heard of, that it somehow makes them a bigger authority on music. I reckon this fucking shit-for-brains must think because people like Maiden, they can't possibly be aware of the underground scene. I can list fifty bands off the top of my head that have never signed with a major record label, let alone be anywhere near a TV or radio.

And the funny thing about all of this is Maiden became (and still is) a gigantic success without either.

So let Dicktator ramble on. I find it amusing, actually. I did mention something about being a Mithras fan myself, which are surely more underground than his shitty Kreator. But he didn't respond to that, just like he didn't respond to the mountains of other points made by other people.

Fucking idiot.

Yep, it really is a complete farce...

I think no matter which way this album was reviewed (ultra critical, unwavering praise, even middle of the road) there'd be sections of people tearing it apart. Although I dont share some of your opinions of the album, I still liked the review. Very good.

Not you though, Daniell, I'm ignoring your review because I haven't heard A Matter of Life and Death yet, let alone Final Frontier. Once I hear them, I'll make my opinion.

Marcel Hubregtse is probably the most idiotic creature to touch a keyboard.


Why do you say that?

Maybe because of this:


Written by Marcel Hubregtse on 14.08.2010 at 18:36

LOL @ Iron Maiden and complex songs. Iron Maiden have (even when they were good up to 1988) and always havve a simple band. Even their so-called complex songs.

That's why all their periods have been covered by so many bands. Cause it's not hard.


He believes they aren't great composers, and the bands make covers because their songs are not good, but easy to play.


Or...maybe because he uses a petty insult towards the band for no reason, and he thinks that Maiden songs are easy to play. Maybe so, but until he can prove that he can play Maiden, he's just talking outta his ass.

Rating: 7 Too freakin long! Songs are good, but too long. Ofcourse, some songs are just suposed to be long, theres just no other way for band to say what they have to say, so they are forced to make long and complex songs. But in this occasion, I think, that Iron Maiden has already sad all they had to say, and theres no need for such long album (over 70 minutes). But still it's quite decent album, I liked it!

You can see lots of their videos on mainstream music channels here and you very often hear Maiden songs on 'mainstream metal special' radio broadcasts.

As for "Seriously the most overrated band EVER", I would not have told that in the 80s but it's definitely the case since Dickinson's comeback. Also, I believe lots of fanboys are frustrated by the piss poor quality of the new album (something they will never admit, of course) and can't find any solid argument to defend the material, so all they do is flaming those who dislike it.

And being overrated on the metal scene has very little to do with radio or TV. It has to do with getting way too much recognition by releasing shitty material, something Maiden specialized themselves at during the last decade.

Rating: 8 I must say that at first I didn't like the album very much. But I must say that I like it more and more as I listen to it again and again. I had a similar feeling with their previous album which I didn't like at first and now I love it. The only exception so far is Isle of Avalon - I really cant convince myself to like that song. The Final Frontier as a whole may not be as powerful as some older Iron Maiden pieces since the songs are quite long and rather slow, but I believe that to be a feature and not a bug.

Even now they aren't "overrated'. Why don't you explain why you think their newer songs are not good? You just keep saying that "new songs are shit" "80's was good" really, what is the difference? Maiden haven't lost their 80's edge, at least not to my ears.

I will explain it politely. Let's hope you do the same in return. I don't mind if we agree or not, as long as the discussion remains on a reasonable level.

What I think is the songs since Bruce's comeback lack the sharper edge Maiden had in the 80s, that they are in general slower, repetitive and way too long, so they drag. Some parts are way too soft for Maiden too. And most songs tend to sound alike, generic and uninspired. The old Maiden songs were often kinda complex and progressive but they were more 'straight to the point' and focused. Also, Bruce has lost much of the raw power he had in the 80s. Compare songs like "Powerslave" or "Moonchild" to any recent song and, imo, it's impossible to not see a difference in vocals. The new Maiden is more hard rock-ish and less metal. Also, guitars are less sharp and lower in the mix. They might use 3 guitars now but they could do with 2 guitars as well because they don't use them at their potential. The production makes their albums sound softer.
Another thing is on some songs and parts, Nicko's drumming is quite basic. His playing was generally more complex and varied in the 80s.

Put all this together and I think the new Maiden is more hard rock-ish, repetitive, uninspired and forgettable, imo. And I think they have no aggressivity and raw power left, exactly like Iced Earth on "The Crucible Of Man" (which, by the way, I consider worse than any Maiden album since the reunion).

There is surely a difference, because I still can listen to old Maiden without any problem (and that even if I moved to more extreme music long ago), while I find the new stuff utterly boring.

I hope it answers your question. Feel free to ask any precision or argue on some points. I'm not here to force my opinion through you or convince you of anything. As long as you're not harsh, I'm fine.
I would have explained it earlier but, to be honest, I don't really see the point in giving long explanations when I know in advance people won't even care for what I can write and will only reply by a bunch of insults, no matter what I'm saying.
Also, sorry but I have to say I have a hard time trusting you, considering the previous exchanges we had on this board. I can get over it and forget about it if you prove in the long run that you can be correct, no matter if our opinions are different.

Thank you for being mature about the whole thing. I agree that Bruce's vocals aren't what they used to be, but they still aren't that bad. And I don't exactly see a problem with the three guitars, you said that they aren't being used to their full potential, that may be true in some cases, but wouldn't YOU specifically not mind it? If you think that it still sounds like two guitars, wouldn't that be more like a throwback and a reminder of the 80's Maiden? 80's Maiden tend to "drag on" in some cases too, like Seventh Son of a Seventh Son and Rime of the Ancient Mariner. New Maiden isn't really "soft", at least listen to Montsegur and Paschendale off of their 2003 album, Dance of Death, these songs get pretty heavy, lyrically and musically. Well, you said you moved on to more extreme music, so I guess it sounds soft to you, oh well. To each their own.

About Bruce's vocals, I would say it depends on songs and even on parts of songs. Sometimes I find his vocals ok, sometimes they make me cringe. I started to have this problem with him on FOTD.
He definitely shows signs of aging, imo, (I know it is normal), just like Mille (Kreator) started to show on "Hordes Of Chaos".

The three guitar thingy is not really important. Only a detail. I think it comes down to my dislike of Gers and that I believe they should have fired him when Adrian came back. After all, the classic line-up I was used to didn't feature Gers. I think he's completely useless and I also dislike the way he looks on stage (his dancing annoys me).

"Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" and "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner" are among my favorite Maiden songs. Sure, they are long but I don't have the feelling they drag. Matter of tastes, I guess.

Some songs are heavier, indeed. The two songs you mention are from DOD. I can't say I like this album but it's the one I dislike the least since their reunion. But, yeah, I'm so used to Black Metal and Thrash that Maiden tends to sound quite soft for me in comparison. I mean, even early Blind Guardian sounds a bit soft for me now (but only a bit and I still enjoy it).

And I wish to add that even if I don't enjoy post-2000 Maiden, I still consider this stuff quite superior to NPFTD, at least half of FOTD and the Blaze era (which I find utterly atrocious). It was a mistake to hire Blaze in Maiden and, if it weren't for Bruce's return, I'm sure we would not even talk of this band now because it would have died long ago.
(they were playing before audiences of 5000-6000 people back then and it decreased more and more as time went by)

The fact you don't like Black or Death Metal doesn't mean those genres are shitty.
I don't know, perhaps you're one of those people who believe every other metal genre apart from traditional Heavy Metal is not good. Some people seem simply unable to accept that metal changed, evolved and got more specialized with time.

I don't know, perhaps you're one of those people who believe every other metal genre apart from traditional Heavy Metal is not good.


True .And maybe I should edit my profile to keep the fucker satisfied then...

Take a look at his profile. You'll get your answer.


He seems much more into old bands but there are a few more recent ones too.

Rating: 2 On a sidenote, I must say I'm a big Black Metal fan but there's very little Death Metal I like. I think there are many good DM bands, it's just that they don't appeal to my tastes.
And I think lots of people are overprotective when it comes to traditional Heavy Metal. Yes, there is good and great stuff in this genre but I believe some people simply stick to this stuff to death, to the point they're unable to see that there's lots of great stuff in other metal genres. There's some conservationism into play, imo.

Ditching the old stuff (something I'm guilty of at times) on the sole principle that it's old is not right but people who say that only this old stuff is good and everything made after is shit are wrong.

Ironic seeing as you have some of the same bands he has. And yours are even more overrated.


Yes the list was outdated.

Great, ad hominem attacks based on nationality. Next thing I know, someone's going to get compared to Hitler...


A hyperbole went a bit too far in my opinion.

Rating: 8 I really don't understand where these bad reviews are coming from, sure it's no Powerslave or Brave New World. but it's the best they have released in a while... Especially after dance of death.
