New Maiden Video: "The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg"

A Matter of Life and DeathView here or here.

Pleasantly surprised, I am. A very interesting choice for single for a variety of reasons, especially due to its over seven minute run time. Quiet at first with faint guitar noodling, plucky bass by Harris, and softly uttered lyrics by Bruce. At two minutes it blasts into simple cool riffage, and yes, it's actually louder than the intro! Nice soloing where expected. Winds down with the same quiet noodling it started with.

I can actually hear the drums snap and the bass plunk throughout the song. This is good news, and I hope the actual album has this sound - it's a million times better sound-wise via lousy streaming compressed format than what we've got on the Dance of Death CD.

Bah. The director is clearly anti-Adrian. Where's my boy? Too much Jannick.

Looking forward to the rest of the disc.
