It's been one year since Iron Maiden released their 16th album, The Book of Souls, and the remarkably ambitious double album has added. The Book of Souls offers a textbook example of how a band's previous album can effectively set fan's expectations for the follow up before a.

For a band that excelled when their albums dynamically alternated between adventurous epic tracks and short, immediate headbangers, they were clearly slipping down a hole where their compositions kept getting longer and longer, testing the will of anyone who wants to listen to an album from start to finish. Just ask Metallica. So what did Maiden decide to do for their 16th studio album? Immediately the idea made many wonder if the band had finally gone too far. Ninety two minutes of blaring heavy metal is a hell of a lot for anyone -- metal fan, music writer, casual listener -- to take in, digest, and form a well-reasoned opinion of. The fact that The Book of Souls has been split neatly into two halves is a stroke of genius, as it encourages the listener to take his or her time. When you do take a moment to step back and contemplate each half on its own, in its own time, the more of a marvel the entire album turns out to be. The sequencing on both halves of The Book of Souls is very strong throughout, but brilliantly executed on disc one. Before jumping to the next disc, pause for a moment and look at what just happened. Disc one is a crisp 50 minutes, just like Powerslave, and beautifully paced too: progressive opener, speedster, heavy cut, rousing epic, dynamic rocker, theatrical epic. This is as commanding and as focused as Iron Maiden has sounded in nearly three decades. The real challenges lie on disc two, however. Well, to be more specific, challenge.

Dickinson that just begs to be sung by a stadium filled with Maiden fanatics. If The Book of Souls were to take its bow after "Tears of a Clown," the band's farewell to Robin Williams, and "The Man of Sorrows," a piece filled with melancholy and soul, we'd all be left in a euphoric haze praising our metal heroes for yet another life affirming release.

However, an extra 18 minutes is given to a little cut called "Empire of the Clouds. Using a keyboard Bruce Dickinson won at a charity event, "Empire of the Clouds" was pieced together like a sonic Frankenstein, turning into an entity Bruce never could have imagined when first placing fingers on his shiny new electric piano.

Steve Harris has rightfully called the song a "masterpiece," while Bruce referred to it as a personal opus during our recent chat see below with the singer.

Many have referred to "Empire of the Clouds" as everything you love about Iron Maiden rolled into one song, but this is only partially true, as "Empire" is like nothing you've ever heard from Maiden before.

Beginning with a beautiful piano piece accompanied by strings and a marching snare beat, "Empire of the Clouds" remains calm while Bruce narrates the tragic R airship disaster of Bruce's lifelong passion for aircraft pierces through the opus, giving "Empire" an extra sense of heart which simply cannot be manufactured.
