Senjutsu. Loosely translated to tactics and strategy. Weird title. Not a very marketable title either. Most people won't even be able to read that title either.

Reminds a bit about the Maiden in Japan-cover......

Don't really like the very dark background.

When I first saw the title, I weirdly thought of it as sort of a cryptic anagram...

Senjutsu = Enjustus=Injustice.

Not as concerned with the album cover as I am with the song lengths. Kinda getting tired of the long songs. I’m sure there will be at least 4-5 solid songs on there at least. There always is with any Maiden album of the past 20 years.

I agree 100 % .

I would like them to release an album with shorter punchier songs like the first 3 albums.

I’m actually very disappointed that this isn’t the real album cover. It would’ve been up there as one of their best, to be honest. Definitely the best since Bruce and Adrian came back. Hell with it, I’m just going to act like this is the actual album cover😂

Intresting fact.
Grand Prix supported Maiden on the World Piece Tour, and had the Samurai life size figure on stage.
It was stolen some time during the tour. :scratch: :)

The cover stands out from their other albums. I’m not too concerned with albums covers as long as the material is good. Early Black Sabbath albums had some crummy covers but contained great music.

I'm definitely interested in a new Maiden tour, provided Steve stops shoving the Blaze era shit down our throats. I mean I get it he's trying to make sure that everyone knows it's his band then heu'll do whatever he wants, but no one wants to hear that crap

Nooe. Next tour will be in support of new album. Unlike other bands when Maiden goes out on tour to support a new album they play half the album . That leaves room for a few of the Staples and a couple obscurities maybe.
I really think the new Tour will be half the new album and they going to focus more on their recent albums with the usual three or four Staples

It’s odd because they hadn’t done any Blaze stuff since the Dance of Death tour in 2003. They did Lord of the Flies. Then absolutely nothing for fifteen plus years until the last tour and he shoves TWO boring Blaze epics in the set, Clansman and Sign of the Cross. Either one of those is fine, but not both in the same show.

Where’s Infinite Dreams? Caught Somewhere In Time? Total Eclipse would be a great one.

80% of the songs on the new album is closer to ten minutes long than three minutes long. So for every new piece of shit they play they have to elbow two or three great songs that people want to hear.

But I bet they keep in Wraithchild for some reason. Zzzz.

They should play a few shows where they play the entire new album, not just most of the tracks.

Still they do their set-lists and rotate the different types of them, far better than most bands, including and especially Kiss!

This. They shall get back to The 80s formula with catchier songs.. Number of the beast is songs like 4-5 minuters with a bombastic ending with Hallowed be thy name... 4 songs like 10 minutes or longer. And Bruce song sucked on The videos.. Wickerman and Blood brother were The two last Great one... In The 80s Maiden was one of the best bands in the world. I got my hope to song number 5. Days Of Future Past (4:03) . (Smith/Dickinson). The rest Will probably suck.. It was enough with 7 songs and one longer masterpiece at the end... Someone said that Maiden started to go downhill when Derek Riggs stopped to do their paintings.. It was also a mistake to let Adrian go... And Blaze. OH my god I sing better and Im not joking... The 7 first albums masterpieces... My 3 favorite are The first album, Number of the beast and Somewhere in time because it really sounded "Future" when it came in 86 and Adrians solos on that album is second to me after Randy Rhoads fantastic solos on Blizzard of ozz

Yea I'm predicting probably a 13 song set c u z these new songs are so long. If Steve puts a Blaze song in there, that would be ridiculous!!

Sounds like the same complaints. The songs needed to be trimmed
