Product Description

Iron Maiden
The Final Frontier

The release date for IRON MAIDEN'S new studio album THE FINAL FRONTIER is now confirmed for Tuesday August 17th in North America. The new album features artwork illustrated by Melvyn Grant, and is comprised of 10 new Iron Maiden compositions, clocking in at over 76 minutes in length. THE FINAL FRONTIER will be available in a special limited edition Metal Tin package at launch, as well as standard CD, and Double Picture Disc vinyl. The band reunited with long-time Maiden producer Kevin 'Caveman' Shirley in early 2010 at Compass Point Studios, Nassau to record THE FINAL FRONTIER and then moved to LA to finish the recording and do the mixing. Compass Point Studio is very familiar to the band, it was where they recorded the Piece Of Mind ('83), Powerslave ('84) and Somewhere In Time ('86) albums. Bruce comments 'The studio had the same vibe and it was EXACTLY as it had been in 1983, NOTHING had changed! Even down to the broken shutter in the corner...same carpet....everything... It was really quite spooky. But we felt very relaxed in such a familiar and well-trodden environment and I think this shows in the playing and the atmosphere of the album'

Thirty years on from their eponymous debut album in April 1980, The Final Frontier will be Maiden's 15th studio album, making a remarkable average of a new album every two years for 30 years and totalling over 80 million album sales during this period

There it is the new Iron Maiden album, "The Final Frontier"! As huge of an Iron Maiden fan that I am I will not be too quick to say that it's an instant classic or the best Iron Maiden album ever, that's just not me and let's try to stay objective here for a second. If you know Maiden you should already have a good idea of what to expect, especially if you've heard their last three albums Brave New World (2000), Dance of Death (2003) and A Matter of Life and Death (2006). It doesn't sound all that different from the sound of the albums Iron Maiden put out in the 00's decade and you know what? It's not necessarily a bad thing because the music is still good, creative and the music itself is different and it seems most fans are still enjoying the band today. At this point I'm just thrilled that one of my favorite bands continues to release music of this quality today. It seems as if Maiden's music seems to get more complex (and it was always that way) as they go by, I think this one is an example of that. They keep doing what they do and want because they want to and they don't care for radio airplay, they have some of the most dedicated fans in the world (see Flight 666 DVD).

Of course the songs on TFF are long ones (the shortest one being 4:29), however for the casual listener a long song by the band may seem too long, after all not everyone likes 10+ minutes songs you know? Some people think those type of long songs are boring and perhaps pretentious, I think it shows incredible musical ability and willingness to bring the fans creative music but everyone has a different take on this.

I will comment on a few songs on The Final Frontier and leave the extended song-by-song analysis to other reviewers. The album opens with Satellite 15...

A band that needs no introduction, Maiden is back with album # 15 "The Final Frontier". A lot of people were concern that this would the band's last release as Bassist/band founder Steve Harris said, back in the early 80s, that Iron Maiden would release 15 albums & then call it quits after. Well Steve re-assured the Metal world by stating that Maiden will release other albums after this one. Now that this matter is settled let's go to "The Final Frontier". Having been a fan of the band since "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" (1988) & been lucky enough to have seen them in concert 4 years in row, I'm always curious as to what Steve Harris & the boys will do with every release. They mentioned several times that, with this album, they would be doing something different than what they did earlier, & to that effect it is indeed a different release. Different, yes; special, no. Right from the start the weird intro called "Satellite 15" is a great indicator that Iron Maiden as every intention to explore new musical ground. But when the title track starts, even though it's a great song with a catchy chorus, it simply sounds like a regular 3 chord Rock song. No twin guitars parts, just verse, chorus & lead. As I said, it's a great song but I was expecting something stronger for a title track. Fortunately, 1 song is not enough to disappoint. Songs throughout the album vary between the 7 to 9 minutes mark with even the album closer, "When the Wild Wind Blows" which is a 10 minutes plus song. All songs carry that classic Maiden structure with great guitar work & tempo changes that the band is so well know for. My main issue is that, after listening to the CD a few times, I didn't find a song that actually stood out. A good album in all, but very Iron Maiden generic even in the attempt of doing something different. But then again, after being on the scene for over 30 years & being 1 of the biggest Metal band in the world, Maiden got simply nothing to prove.
