Dawn Of The New Era
on 9 May 2014
Year is 1995 and Iron Maiden in many fans eyes were becoming "Stale" and living in Past glories, a change was needed and so it did Bruce Dickinson left to have a solo career and so Maiden hired Blaze Bayley to take over Vocals. What we have here is a dark...very dark album Blaze does a good job and fits with being in Maiden its a gloomy album too due to lyrics written by Steve Harris who was going through a tough time during recording. Yes this album is very different than its predecessors and some Slate it for it but there are some Maiden Classics here like "Sign Of The Cross", "Man On The Edge", "Fortunes Of War" & "Edge Of Darkness"
If you want a Dark, Gloomy Iron Maiden with Classic Riffs this is an album to buy all I'm going to say is DO NOT compare Blaze with Bruce coz they're not the same and it'd be boring if they did
