It’s Labor Day so I wasn’t expecting to post much but decided to give you guys a Monday Metal to celebrate the official released of Iron Maiden’s new album, The Book of Souls. Since I had to drive back to my parent’s place this weekend I had plenty of time to enjoy the new album. It’s a masterpiece. Seriously. In my opinion the album rivals Brave New World and A Matter of Life and Death.
Of all the songs Empire of Clouds, the 18 minute song that closes the second “disc” (I obtained my copy via Apple Music so no discs were actually involved). It’s about the ill-fated R101 airship.
Now you’re probably wondering where the song is. Good question! It seems YouTube’s copyright infringement algorithm has become exceedingly ruthless. I found one good post of the song but noticed it was taken down before this post was scheduled to go live. Since I really didn’t have time or desire to grab another song I decided to leave this post up as a testament to shitty copyright laws and a solid album that is worth your money.
