Surprised to say this, but the new Helloween is fantastic.

I keep meaning to buy a new turntable just so I can play all of my old vinyl currently in the garage but I know this will become me as well.

I think it must be about 2 years since I bought a CD and around 15 since I bought a vinyl record.

As predicted this has now become me.

I started off buying some old AC/DC and Motorhead albums on ebay and now spending too much at the likes of juno and rarewaves.

I'd love to buy the original pressings of some of my favourite 80's thrash which I never had on vinyl but the prices are stupid. I discovered I've got a copy of Leprosy which is worth about £200 though. :D

Steve says “We chose to record at Guillaume Tell Studio in France again as the place has such a relaxed vibe. The setup there is perfect for our needs; the building used to be a cinema and has a really high ceiling so there’s a great acoustic sound. We recorded this album in the same way we did The Book Of Souls in that we’d write a song, rehearse it and then put it down together straight away while it was all fresh in our minds. There’s some very complex songs on this album which took a lot of hard work to get them exactly as we wanted them to sound, so the process was at times very challenging, but Kevin is great at capturing the essence of the band and I think it was worth the effort! I’m very proud of the result and can’t wait for fans to hear it.”

Bruce continues, “We’re all really excited about this album. We recorded it back in early 2019 during a break in the Legacy tour so we could maximize our touring yet still have a long set up period before release to prepare great album art and something special as a video. Of course the pandemic delayed things more - so much for the best laid plans – or should that be ‘strategies’!? The songs are very varied, and some of them are quite long. There’s also one or two songs which sound pretty different to our usual style, and I think Maiden fans will be surprised - in a good way, I hope!“
