The metal classics have returned to recall what a real British heavy is, and how to play it. Iron Maiden ... magic words for a connoisseur of heavy music. The group, which became a cultural phenomenon, gained world success and actually established itself in the mainstream, simply creating amazing music, while never changing its style. They did not play punk when he dominated the British scene, did not flirt with glam when he was in fashion, did not "cut" grunge and nu-metal when it was so relevant. In this case, some compositions created by the genius of Steve Harris and Co., in the musical plan simply plug all the directions listed above (with all due respect to glam!). The only thing that divided the IM fans is the group's experiments with the program and the overall complexity of the music after Brave New World (or even after The X Factor, if you like). On "AMOLAD" these experiments reached their climax and I was personally forced to doubt their expediency. Too overwhelmed and difficult to perceive, the music turned out. And there was no reason to believe that "The Final Frontier" will be written in a different way. Fortunately, the fears were not confirmed.
