"The Fifteenth Frontier"

The final frontier is not easy to get into. At 76:34 long with 1 sub 5 minute song it is lengthy listening. But opener 'Satellite 15... The Final Frontier' should have been 2 tracks for the listener, and the indulgences at the beginning and end of the sole single 'El Dorado' could have been cut

In 'Satellite 15' the initial frantic bass is complex machinery gone haywire whilst dread is the sparse guitars and the drums become urgent. And then there are the vocals with that dramatic delivery - and they need to be: stranded, and about to face 'The Final Frontier'; the riffing rocking.

Another favourite track is 'Mother of Mercy' - the notes added in between the rhythm section riffing at about a minute and a half-in followed by the low end taking up the gallop raises interest. I think my favourite riff on this album however has to be those in 'Starblind', and I am all-ears for the back-phrasing of vocals and guitars.

I listen to tributes play the oldies and I am still Olde Maiden.

    Have a read around the site to see what gets the positive reviews; this isn't a bad start at all, but it could do with some more detail.
