Sounds like they are going a bit in the folk metal direction on this new video for WRITING ON THE WALL

New album soon? Sure hope so!

I'm always up for new Iron Maiden.

I'm not completely wowed by the new track the way first singles from the last few have. 

By the way, if you listen to the song on Spotify, it doesn't have the weird echo effect on Bruce's vocals like in the video.

^ agreed. Music is just OK but video is kick ass for sure!

Sounds like they're playing it safe as far as music is concerned.

Not expecting a zinger like the last one for the album but any Maiden is great one, well except the Blaze Bailey albums of course!

Nice! An instrumental part around the middle of the song is very cool.

I was hoping for something a bit more energetic, so first listen was somewhat disappointing. I'm giving it another go, though, so we'll see if it grows on me. First impression are it's not bad or anything, but nothing special, and not what I was hoping for.

Love it! Great song, trying something a little different, but still distinctly Maiden. And a brilliant video.

Cool(but strange) video and great music, as always! Looking forward to some new Maiden.

The video is great... nice piece of social commentary. The music didn't really catch me (apart from the instrumental section), and reminded me a bit of the more mediocre songs on TFF. I'll give it a couple of listens though; might be one of those songs that grow on you.

A slightly different vibe at times, especially at the start, but still distinctly Iron Maiden. 

I'm not as impressed as I have been before for lead singles from them before, but the best Maiden tracks usually aren't the singles.

And indeed, it might be a grower.
