Release

Despite a career spanning over more than 45 years Iron Maiden are still going strong. I witnessed their 2018 show at the Trondheim Rocks Festival in Norway back in 2018, and that particular show stands out as one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended. Six years have passed since the release of The Book Of Souls, as they are finally back with their seventeenth studio album entitled Senjutsu. It’s a long one for sure with a total runtime of about 82 minutes, and the majority of the tracks are quite long as well with three of them clocking in on ten minutes or more. It mostly sounds unmistakable Iron Maiden, but there are definitely some songs or elements of songs that differs a bit from the “normal formula” and that will probably divide the fans opinion. I’ve seen Death Of The Celts being criticized and referred to as a copy of The Clansman, and I can see why but I like the track even though it’s not my favorite track on the album. Speaking of favorite tracks I would probably have to mention The Time Machine, Days Of Future Past, The Writing On The Wall, Darkest Hour as well as the closing track Hell On Earth which in my opinion is the best of Steve Harris “ten minutes or more” trilogy. The production on Senjutsu is probably a bit different from other Iron Maiden albums as well, but I really like it and find it both punchy and pleasant to listen to. The only thing I can point at on the negative side is probably the that a few of the longer tracks could easily have been shorten down a bit without sacrificing the quality, but with that said Senjutsu is a very good and worthy Iron Maiden Album.
